Nevermore was the third release of the fourth series of Eighth Doctor Adventures.

Publisher's summary Edit

A bizarre manifestation in the Control Room forces the TARDIS onto the Plutonian shores of the irradiated world Nevermore, whose sole inhabitant is the war criminal Morella Wendigo — a prisoner of this devastated planet. But the Doctor and his new companion aren't Morella's only visitors. Senior Prosecutor Uglosi fears the arrival of an assassin, after the blood of his prize prisoner. An assassin with claws...

There's no escape from Nevermore, whose raven-like robot jailers serve to demonstrate Uglosi's macabre obsession with the works of the 19th century horror writer Edgar Allan Poe. An obsession that might yet lead to the premature burial of everyone on the planet's surface — wreathed in the mist they call the Red Death!

Astronomical objects Edit

  • Nevermore was previously called Corinth Minor located in Cassiopeia, which contained volcanoes that showered semi-precious gemstones instead of lava.

The Doctor Edit

  • The Doctor quotes extensively from The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe.
  • The Doctor met Poe in the autumn of 1849 in Baltimore where his title was mistaken for a medical qualification. He was asked to attend to Poe who was in a bar sitting among a crowd of drunks but was completely sober.

Individuals Edit

  • Tamsin did a circus arts module in drama school, which included escapology and contortionism.
  • Uglosi tells the Doctor that a "strange little man" was brought before his court on a vagrancy charge twenty years earlier.

Literature from the Real World Edit

  • The Doctor (et. al) recite much of the poem "The Raven" and some of the short story "The Fall of the House of Usher" by Edgar Allan Poe.

Popular Culture from the Real world Edit

  • After the black cat appears in the TARDIS console room, Tamsin refers to Bagpuss and Animals Do the Funniest Things.


Notes Edit

  • The story has numerous influences from Poe's canon of work. 'Nevermore' is also the word the Raven caws in The Raven, whilst the robotic ravens derive from the same story; a black cat is the focus of The Black Cat; the mist of the Red Death is a reference to the titular plague of The Masque of the Red Death.
  • The story was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Extra on 9 January 2013.
  • The Doctor mentions being called to attend Poe, three days before his death in 1849. He died of an unknown illness on October 7th of that year, after being found delirious on a Baltimore street on October 3rd.
