The Darksmith Legacy is a ten book series featuring the Tenth Doctor and published by BBC Children's Books supported by an interactive website.

Series Background

This ten-book series follows the Doctor on his exciting journey to discover the origins of the so-called Eternity Crystal and the powerful artisans who created it - the Darksmiths. The books have interactive elements, readers having the options to go to the tie-in website to add points to a tally of points accumulated so as to access further additional content.

  • Apart from the fiction, the books have TARDIS Data Banks containing more information and activity pages designed to tie in with the websites.
  • Additionally, the books have cut-out or downloadable coupons entitling readers to an invitation to a party in London, provided they had completed the challenges.
  • The first 500 entries providing proof of purchase of any two titles in the series also could receive an exclusive slipcase for the ten-book series.
  • Each book ends in a cliffhanger leading on to the opening paragraphs of the next installment of this ongoing storyline.
