The Dogs of War was a short story released by Candy Jar Books in 2015.

Publisher's summary Edit

The London Event was only the beginning, or so Colonel Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart believed. Until he was ordered to meet with Air Vice-Marshal Ian Gilmore. It began in 1963 – for Gilmore, at least. But the alien codenamed Cosmic Hobo visited Earth a lot earlier than that.

It's not only Lethbridge-Stewart who wishes to learn the truth of these visits. He is being watched, and soon Lethbridge-Stewart and Gilmore find themselves in the deserted tunnels of the London Underground chased by a familiar furry form...

Notes Edit

  • This story is set three days after the events of PROSE: Beast of Fang Rock.
  • Lethbridge-Stewart is naively surprised that Piccadilly could have so many distinguished establisment clubs and also so much vice trade.
  • While Gilmore and Hamilton believe the UK should be sorted out first, Lethbridge-Stewart still believes a global effort is needed to fight aliens.
  • Army files assume that the Second Doctor and Seventh Doctor are the same person ("Cosmic Hobo"), based on their descriptions, and (now they know he's a time traveller) that the First Doctor may be an older version of the same man. It's also believed other Doctors are other agents using the same alias (as ws also theorised in PROSE: Who Killed Kennedy).
  • Department C19 is given as an example of powerful, dangerous figures who have a vested interest in aliens remaining secret: hence Hamilton treading carefully.
  • Various clandestine agencies have secret research bases under London, similar to the Citadel nuclear bunkers.
  • Leslie Johnston says the Vault is working on wireless transmission and enthuses about the possibilities of a global wireless computer network.
