'12 Doctors, 12 Stories' Gift Edition Box-Set with Minimalist Covers Available Soon!


In the lead-up to the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who last year, a series of 11 e-books were commissioned by the BBC - one for each Doctor.  Now those books are being compiled into a box-set of paperbacks, with the added bonus of a twelfth book for Peter Capaldi's Doctor.

As if getting these books together in one set wasn't enough, they've been given some pretty snazzy minimalist covers, each one featuring that corresponding Doctor's unique attire.

Here are a few examples:

A Big Hand for the Doctor, by Eoin Colfer (The First Doctor - William Hartnell)

The Roots of Evil, by Philip Reeve (The Fourth Doctor - Tom Baker)

Spore, by Alex Scarrow (The Eighth Doctor - Paul McGann)

And here's what the complete box-set looks like:


You can see the rest of the covers by visiting RadioTimes.com.  This collection also comes with a set of twelve exclusive postcards.

The set will be released in the U.K. on October 23, and in the U.S. on November 18.

In the U.K. you can pre-order now at http://www.amazon.co.uk.
In the U.S. you can place your order at http://www.amazon.com.
