BBC America Press Release:
New York – March 24, 2010 – The Doctor has regenerated into a brand-new man, but danger strikes before he can even recover, as Doctor Who returns for a new rebooted series from BAFTA-winning writer Steven Moffat (Steven Spielberg’s upcoming Tintin, Jekyll, Coupling). With his time machine, the TARDIS, wrecked and the sonic screwdriver, his most crucial device destroyed, the new Doctor has just 20 minutes to save the whole world – and only Amy Pond to help him. Doctor Who premieres Saturday, April 17, 9:00p.m. ET/PT. The Doctor Who premiere episode is an extended version with limited commercial interruption.

The reboot series has the Doctor (Matt Smith) and his new travelling companion, the enigmatic Amy Pond (Karen Gillan), together exploring sixteenth century Venice, France during the 1890s and the United Kingdom in the far future, now an entire nation floating in space. But, the Doctor’s enemies are never far behind him including old nemeses the Daleks and Weeping Angels, plus new foes such as alien vampires, humanoid reptiles and a silent menace that follows the Doctor and Amy wherever they go.

Book Review: Mark of the Demon

Mark of the Demon

Mark of the Demon, by Diana Rowland

Kara Gillian is a police detective and summoner of demons. While performing a routine ritual to summon a minor demon, Kara somehow accidentally brings forth a beautiful but deadly demon lord. But Kara just may need his help with her latest case. The Symbol Man is a serial killer who leaves his victims with strange ritualistic symbols on their bodies. This is Kara’s first homicide case, and she’s definitely going to be put through the fire.

Rowland’s urban fantasy world of arcane magic and demons is fresh and original. The demons of her world are not the well-known evil creatures from hell, but honorable and still deadly. Kara is a smart and tough cop with a dark past. Rowland’s characters are well-developed and distinct.

Blending police procedure and fantasy, this debut is a great start to a fascinating series. The plot is complex and suspenseful. And the mystery is a whodunit with a surprising, climactic ending. There are mild romantic elements, but the plot certainly focuses more on the mystery and magic. This urban fantasy novel is dark, fast-paced, and gripping. Fans of the genre should not miss this series.

Blood of the Demon is the recent sequel, and I’ll be jumping into it right away.
