Who is truly free?
Katherine Carter believes she is. With all her life spent on her father's Herefordshire farm, her future seems mapped out - until she meets Karl.
Karl Driesler has little freedom. His future is bleak. Still a prisoner of war 18 months after Germany's surrender, he suffers nightmares, and his fiancée has just married another man.
In this book, Steven Cooper covers all 26 episodes broadcast in 2014 and 2015, from the start of the Capaldi era to the 2015 Christmas special. The result vividly captures the journey taken by Peter Capaldi's Doctor, from the angst of his 2014 debut and its effect on his relationship with his companion Clara, to his confident rock 'n' roll persona of 2015.
At over 90,000 words, this is the most comprehensive fan guide yet published to the 2012-2013 season of Doctor Who, and its 50th Anniversary. This series was the most demanding yet for Steven Moffat; no other Doctor Who showrunner had previously faced an assignment like writing a series finale, an anniversary story, and a combined Christmas Special/Doctor finale in quick succession.
It is 1969, 'Make love not war' is now the world's battle cry as the Anglo-German hunt to capture handsome but emotionally vulnerable widower Karl Driesler begins. First into the fray is Ilse Zopf, his wartime fiancée; the English bloodhounds are the wild women of Herefordshire, Sarah Carter and Audrey Kellet.
In the summer of 1968 a wedding reunites Karl and Katherine Driesler’s entire family in Herefordshire, but there is a spectre at the feast in the form of Karl’s illegitimate son, Siegfried. His boyhood friend and neo-Nazi, Gustav Halstrup, forces him into a lethal game of bluff involving everyone he knows. Only Siegfried knows the truth of his actions, which have devastating consequences.
In this book, layperson Kevin Mahoney argues that Christian churches should embrace same sex marriage, since homophobia is contrary to the spirit and manner of Jesus. Jesus himself never condemned homosexuality; however, He did criticise the hypocrisy of the Pharisees. Kevin argues that the Pharisees are very much alive today in the form of conservative Christians that proscribe homosexuality.
The sequel to "Love for a German Prisoner", this novel sees Karl and Katherine, happily married and living in Herefordshire, until his former lover, Ilse, turns to him for help with their son. Having been taught to despise his father, Siegfried's behaviour leads to an increasingly bloody chain of events.
At over 75,000 words, this is the most comprehensive analysis of Doctor Who series 5 produced so far. Steven Moffat’s first series as showrunner for Doctor Who deserves such a thorough examination, as it is arguably the most intricate ever produced.
