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. Thousands of years ago, Time Lords built a Prison for the Kin. They made it utterly impregnable and unreachable. As long as Time Lords existed, the Kin would be trapped forever and the universe would be safe.
They had planned for everything... everything, that is, other than the Time War and the fall of Gallifrey. Now the Kin are free again and there's only one Time Lord left in the universe who can stop them!
Author Neil Gaiman puts his own unique spin on the Doctor's amazing adventures through time and space in the eleventh and final story in the bestselling 50th anniversary series!

A great doctor who story that feels perfect. It's the right feel and the right fit. Neil Gaiman captures the doctor and Amy perfectly. I'd have loved to see this one played out on the show. It's just creepy enough and would have had some fantastic visuals. The one mark against it is that there are a few characters who the narrator portrays with a very breathy whisper-like voice, which was very difficult to hear in the car where I was listening to this. If you're using headphones or listening at home, that shouldn't be a problem at all though. Highly recommended!
I'm not familiar with Neil Gaimans other work but can see why he's so well known. doctor who new age purists might be upset at the climax of the story. but its important to note when this story came out and why it did.
This is a great collection of short stories that Doctor Who fans will love.
lots of great writers and quite a few Doctor Who celebs narrating as well!
The story was OK and the reading was good but it lacked that little something that turns a reading into a performance.
A great performance can elevate a story. This story really could have used the help.
I can't decide whether I like the longer or shorter who books. I would have loved if this one went on for a bit longer. My wish is for Neil Gaiman to write a longer Who story as his voice fits so perfectly with Who fiction.
I would I like his writing.. hoping the next book is clearer through
No, difficult to hear
diffcult to hear
"Short but sweet"
Not long enough, about twice the length would have fleshed out the suspense
Genuinely creepy, great narrator and writer combination
New Dr Who means new stories, can't wait
