To celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the longest-running science-fiction show in the world, I’ll be taking weekly looks at some of my own personal favourite stories and arcs, from the old and new series, with a view to encapsulating the sublime, the clever and the fiendishly odd of the BBC’s Doctor Who.
The Shakespeare Code originally aired in 2007.
Nighty night, Shakespeare.
– talk about your British icons
The Shakespeare Code is the third season’s opening trip into British nostalgia, a celebrity historical where the Doctor journeys back in time to meet a famous character and to deal with alien menaces masquerading as something altogether more sinister. This time, the Doctor and Martha travel back to meet William Shakespeare. It’s a little on the nose, but perhaps that’s not a bad thing.

There have never been more books published every year and it’s very difficult getting noticed amid some very tough competition. For this reason, BookRepublic has introduced BookPlace.
While some of the titles published under the BookPlace heading are there entirely at the discretion of our editors, authors and publicists may pay for one-time mention.
For just N3,500, we include the title of the book, the author, publisher and a brief write-up. We also include the cover, as well as links to Amazon and/or the author’s web site, if desired.
This BookPlace is not a review opportunity. Included books will not be commented on or judged in any way and the items will be clearly tagged under the BookPlace label. At the same time, it does offer authors a very good and reasonably priced opportunity to get their book in front of BookPlace growing and book-passionate readership.
Please note: we do reserve the right to refuse a book’s inclusion for any reason. Should your title be refused, payment will be refunded in full.
New books will be added within seven days of receipt of payment.
To participate, simply forward the requested information as well as the URL of the web site or blog as you’d like it to appear on BookPlace to email@example.com. Make the subject of your mail: BookPlace. Be certain to include your book’s ISBN, the book cover or a link to where our art department can download the cover art. Then we will forward our account details to you within 24 hours of the receipt of your mail. Your book will appear on BookPlace main page within seven days, probably the next Sunday.
BookPlace is only available on http://www.bukrepublik.com
BookRepublic – http://www.bukrepublik.com – is now open for literary essays that are imaginative and at the same time borders around world literature and its contribution to education. We might also consider creative essays that are politically under toned but not economical with the truth.
At the moment, we do not pay royalty to our ever hardworking and creative contributors. This will be reviewed in a matter of time.
Contributions should be forwarded to the publishers at firstname.lastname@example.org. A short bio and recent picture should be submitted alongside the entry.
it is books and things that matter!
