December 2011, and the Lethbridge-Stewart clan are gathering. The patriarch, Sir Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart is not well. In fact, he’s dying.One of The Doctor's most stalwart companions, Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart, is marking his 50th anniversary in the Whoniverse this year.
He’s determined to face his end with dignity. He has lived a long life, seen a lot of strange things, saved the world more times than he can count, but he has also made a lot of mistakes.
What if he had a chance to revisit some of those mistakes?
To celebrate this milestone, Candy Jar Books - which has been chronicling the Brigadier's life in novels and short stories since 2015 - is releasing a series of six new titles.
The first five fall under the banner of The Laughing Gnome, and follow Sir Alistair, Brigadier Bill Bishop and Dame Anne as they adventure through time, visiting the 1930s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and the 2010s!
The sextet is rounded off with by a novel taking readers right back to the start of the Brigadier’s journey and revealing the decision that changed his life forever!
The Laughing Gnome consists of Scary Monsters by Simon A Forward, The Fear of Web by Alyson Leeds, The Danger Men by Nick Walters, Day of the Matador by Robert Mammone, and Lucy Wilson and the Bledoe Cadets by Tim Gambrell.
These are followed by On His Majesty’s National Service by David A McIntee and military historian Dr Lynette Nusbacher (who some of you may remember from the revival of the excellent Time Commanders back in 2016).
You can order all six books in a bundle, from Candy Jar, or select which you are interested in.
