DWCA Book Club August – Operation Volcano

2019 marks 30 years since the end of the classic series of Doctor Who, and the DWCA Book Club is recognising this significant anniversary by reading the first Seventh Doctor graphic novel from Titan Comics – Operation Volcano.

Written by Seventh Doctor veterans Andrew Cartmel and Ben Aaronovitch, the story sees the Doctor and his companion Ace reunited with Rachel, Allison and Group Captain Gilmore of the Counter-Measures team, last seen on screen in 1988’s Remembrance of the Daleks.

The Doctor, Ace and the Counter-Measures team are holed up on the remote plains of the Australian desert. But what is the true agenda of the traitor in Gilmoreā€™s ranks? What sacrifices will Ace have to make for the sake of the future? And what connects the events of 1967 with an unidentified spacecraft orbiting the Earth in 2029…?

Operation Volcano is available now from DWCA Shop, along with a range of other graphic novels from Titan, and will be discussed at the DWCA Book Club meeting on Friday 2 August. You can also comment on our Facebook page if you can’t make the event.
