Product Description

Product Description

Eleven Doctors, eleven months, eleven stories: a year-long celebration of Doctor Who! The most exciting names in children's fiction each create their own unique adventure about the time-travelling Time Lord.


When Jamie McCrimmon brings the Second Doctor a mysterious book, little does he realise the danger contained within its pages. The book transports the TARDIS to a terrifying glass city on a distant world, where the Archons are intent on getting revenge on the Time Lord for an ancient grudge.

4.0 out of 5 stars Things can only get better 4 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first book in this series, "A big hand for the Doctor" didn't quite cut the mustard, but this one is an improvement. In this, a good deed by Jamie sends he an the Doctor to the far reaches of the galaxy, where a sinister plot is at hand to use the TARDIS to control time. A believable and human story which allows Jamie his moment of glory.

3.0 out of 5 stars Another interesting attempt for the anniversary 13 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Colfer's first Doctor story was a fast and simple affair. There is something grander at work here. A wider scope and a brave attempt to segway Lovecraft-esque creatures into the world of Troughton's Doctor. It's not a stunningly great story but it's entertaining and makes you long for more adventures of the first slightly daft timelord to wear a dickie bow. It'll be interesting to see what they've got in store for Pertwee come the end of the month.

4.0 out of 5 stars My first dr who book 15 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I could hear the Dr and Jamie in the text. They are bold characters in a pacey story that moves well. Written well, my only reservation is it was way too short. I have never read a book in a day before

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better. 9 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This begins with an interesting set up, and makes good use of Jamie, but, like many many recent TV episodes, rushes to a conclusion whilst leaving big ideas (in this case, a Dr Who take on the Cthulu mythos) underdeveloped.
