Published in December 2005, Atom Bomb Blues was the final novel in the BBC Books Past Doctor Adventures range, after which the imprint began to focus exclusively on publishing books featuring the then-current TV incarnation of the Doctor. It is the last full-length Doctor Who novel to date (December 2009) to be published in the traditional mass market paperback format (a number of shorter novellas have been published in trade paperback editions, however).


Publisher's Summary

Los Alamos, New Mexico, 1945. The Second World War is coming to its bloody conclusion, and in the American desert the race is on to build an atomic bomb. The fate of the world is at stake in more ways than one.

Someone, or something, is trying to alter the course of history at this most delicate point. And destroy the human race. Posing as a nuclear scientist with Ace as his research assistant, the Doctor plays detective among the Manhattan Project scientists, while desperately trying to avoid falling under suspicion himself.

As the minutes tick away to the world's first atom bomb blast, the Doctor and Ace find themselves up to their necks in spies, aliens of the flying saucer variety, and some very nasty saboteurs from another dimension.
