Publisher's Summary

David Troughton reads four original stories set in different periods of the Siege of Trenzalore, featuring the Eleventh Doctor as played by Matt Smith.

  • "Let it Snow" by Justin Richards
  • "An Apple a Day" by George Mann
  • "Strangers in the Outland" by Paul Finch
  • "The Dreaming" by Mark Morris.

As it had been foretold, the armies of the Universe gathered at Trenzalore. Only one thing stood between the planet and destruction: the Doctor. For 900 years he defended the planet and the tiny town of Christmas against the forces that would destroy it.

Some of what happened during those terrible years is well documented. But most of it has remained shrouded in mystery and darkness. Until now. This is a glimpse of just some of the terrors the people faced, the monstrous threats the Doctor defeated. These are the tales of the monsters who found themselves afraid--and of the one man who was not.

David Troughton, who has appeared several times in Doctor Who, reads these four original stories.

    Story
    "It's all about battles"
    Has Doctor Who: Tales of Trenzalore turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I'll still read other Doctor Who books, but I'll be more careful of the type of story I choose.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    All battles, all the time. Fighting, battling, out-witting the enemy. No companions. Very little human interaction, very little amusing or clever banter.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not a fan of this book. I should have thought about it more before I bought it, it's during a time when the Doctor has no companion so it's ALL battle all the time. My favorite parts of the Doctor Who series are the story interactions between him and the friends he brings along on his adventures. But this story is about 4 battles he had on Trenzalore before he became the 13th doctor. If you like stories about fighting then by all means, buy this book. For me, not so much.

    "Entertaining Story, Fabulous Narration."

    As a fan of both old and new Doctor Who, Tales of Trenzalore appeals greatly to fans of both genres. An 11th Doctor story, with classic Who monsters (Ice Warriors, the Krynoid, etc...), narrated by David Troughton who makes the Doctor sound charmingly like his second incarnation in many places, these stories were a treat to listen to. Also, I think more backstory to Trenzalore was a great idea. You can only convey so much in a few TV episodes, and these stories added more dimension to the story of the Doctor's stay of hundreds of years on this planet.

    "an OK story but the narrator was great"

    overall I did not really care much for this story. Matt Smith interpretation of the doctor was very entertaining as one could expected he would be. However, the stories themselves we're not that entertaining. During the Doctor Who series when the town of Christmas was shown I felt it was just a cute little story never thought much of it. Now hearing more of these stories with a doctor growing old really was not enjoyable for me at all. I did listen through the entire book but I wish that I could return it it really for me just didn't grab me.

    These stories were not up to par with most Doctor Who stories. The performance was, however, very well done.

    "Doctor Who: Tales of Trenzalore Review"

    David Troughton's Narration was amazing in the Tales of Trenzalore and it leads into the eleventh doctor's last story called the time of the doctor.

    A wonderful collection of stories, brilliantly read by David Troughton, whose Eleventh Doctor was immediately recognisable (if reminiscent occasionally of the second doctor)

    I absolutely loved these stories that take place on Trenzalore. David Troughton brings these tales to life. The only downside is that the second Doctor pops into my head when I listen.

    "Tales of trenzalore is a triumph"
    What made the experience of listening to Doctor Who: Tales of Trenzalore the most enjoyable?

    The most enjoyable aspect of this is david troughton reading it. He makes the characters in the story come alive with his performance


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Doctor Who: Tales of Trenzalore?

    There's far too many memorable moments just to list one


    What about David Troughton’s performance did you like?

    Like I said before it was performance of bringing the characters alive in the book


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Just made me have a big smile on my face
