PJ Hammond is best known as the creator and writer of cult science fiction TV series Sapphire and Steel starring Joanna Lumley and David McCallum. He began writing for television in the 1970’s after working as a script editor and writer on Z Cars. His extensive writing credits also include The Sweeney, The Bill and Midsomer Murders, plus sci-fi and fantasy series Ace of Wands and Shadows for Thames TV and Sky TV’s Space Island One.
Hammond was approached to write for Doctor Who in the 1980’s, however his story Paradise Five was eventually recorded as a full cast audio drama starring the sixth doctor, Colin Baker, as part of the ‘Lost Stories’ season. Peter also penned two episodes of the Doctor Who spin-off series Torchwood.
Sol Bonner was content as a CID Sergeant on the featureless streets of Gate Town, where local industry was in decline and those who could had packed up to somewhere more appealing. It was a passing through place, not somewhere you would expect people to choose to start a new life; especially not ones from another time.
But Sol’s no-nonsense approach to the job got him hand-picked for a promotion to DI of a specialist unit, tasked with tracking down the Downtimers. Unravelling the secrets of the time travellers takes a sinister turn when a chance discovery leads Sol on the trail of a killer who commands death from the palm of his hands.

Welke kleuren wil je terugzien in jouw ontwerp?
Donkere neutrale tinten
Font styles: Clean/Modern/Sci-fi
Style of imagery: Ominous/Threatening/Evil/Murderous
Note: The threads of time or electric silks need to be the main element on the cover and MUST BE INCLUDED in the design. They are rainbows of brightly coloured lights that cluster together from the hands of the killer and are the weapon he uses to kill his victims.
Preferred Cover Idea:
A shadowed (possibly blurred) figure (the killer) against an industrial/abandoned street. The silks/threads suggested within the atmosphere of the cover and the suggestion of the silks entwined and emanating from around the man’s hands within the figure. Predominantly a black/grey cover with the colour in the cover being the silks.
Reflective of the declining industrial setting of the town which is in the UK

Wat te vermijden
That the design doesn’t become to sci-fi in nature. The cover does need to have a strong gritty crime/thriller element to it.
