Iris Wildthyme to the Rescue!

In Planet of the Dead we saw Doctor Who’s latest chum scooting around in a bus, but real fans know that the original bus-wielding companion was the mysterious Iris Wildthyme.

She may or may not be a Time Lady, but one thing’s for sure: The Celestial Omnibus is on the way, an entire book devoted to her adventures.

It features stories by Steve Lyons, Mags L. Halliday and the character’s creator Paul Magrs, and many others. There’s even an introduction by Katy Manning, who played Iris with memorable gusto in the Big Finish audio adventures. The book is due out this month.
