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.


The Third Doctor and Jo Grant are trying to track down the magical spear of Odin when they find themselves caught up in a vicious battle between two Viking tribes. But one of the Vikings is even more dangerous than he appears to be. Can the Doctor stop the spear getting into the wrong hands before it's too late?

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor 29 April 2013
By Walker
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not very good at all. After a superb offering with the second Doctor this is a real step backward. The characterization of the Doctor, Jo and the Brigadier are off. Jo was so annoying, failing to grasp the simplest of plot elements. The story of the spear is very basic and childish and not at all gripping or exciting.

Skip this one to save your money.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Norse, a Norse... 4 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Started a bit slow, but I really like this one. I felt it captured a good flavour of Pertwee's Doctor and also had an interesting tie-in with Norse Mythology. Like a lot of the other stories in the 50th Anniversary collection, it suffers from being strictly limited in length. This could easily have been expanded to a novel. The ending is a little bit `iffy'. It was lucky for the Doctor that the TARDIS' Temporal Grace Field seemed to be working that week.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Dandy Returns 23 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A fine romp for the third Doctor and companion Jo Grant in search of the Spear of Destiny.
I was a little surprised to see that Sedgwick chose Jo for the companion rather than Sarah Jane but the story leaps along at a good pace and is written in such a way that it filled my mind with memories of Saturday tea-times in the '70s.

3.0 out of 5 stars good but these are just a little to short 29 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Whist a good story you have no sooner got into it and the action begun that nits over just a little too simplistic for my tastes. I know they are supposed to be for younger readers but I read A LOT of young adult books as I prefer them and these just don't feel like you've read something. You feel a little cheated at the end. Good idea for a story though would have been good to be a full length story
