Snowglobe 7 by Mike Tucker

The novel “Snowglobe 7” by Mike Tucker was published for the first time in 2008.

The Tenth Doctor takes Martha Jones to what is supposed to be a beach but the freezing wind that hits the travelers as they exit the Tardis indicates that the place isn’t what they were hoping for. This is Snowglobe 7, one of the domes built to maintain the remains of the polar ice caps, which don’t exist anymore in 2099.

The situation in Snowglobe 7 turns out immediately difficult because an unknown disease is spreading among the staff and there seems to be something very strange in the ice. Martha Jones tries to find some answers by examining the sick people while the Doctor tries to recover the memories of a damaged robot.
