Burning Heart is an original novel written by Dave Stone and based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. It features the Sixth Doctor and Peri.


In the disintegrating cosmopolitan society Habitat on Dramos, the situation is dire. Humans and aliens tensions are set to explode, barely kept in check by the Church of Adjudication, who through their OBERON system control all. Corruption of many kinds runs through Dramos, including its people, human and alien alike – mutating into something that could consume their world. And with the Doctor imprisoned and on trial, he may not be able to stop it…

Judge Dredd crossover

The book was originally planned to be a crossover with Judge Dredd (Virgin held the rights to the books at the time) but this plan was scrapped after the release of the Dredd movie.[1] The character of Dredd was replaced by one Adjudicator Joseph Craator.
