Award winning sci-fi writer Michael Moorcock writes a thrilling all-new adventure featuring the 11th Doctor and Amy.
There are dark tides running through the universe - so strong they swallow light and threaten Captain Cornelius's familiar existence; if unchecked they will absorb the whole of Creation. But for now he tracks into the solar winds, searching for the only being he acknowledges as his peer: who is known simply as 'the Doctor'.

I was excited by the other reviews and a keen fan of the tv series but I am struggling to wade through this adjective-laden prose. It took 20 minutes this morning just to describe the ship pulling into dock! The author's compulsion to add alien detail has crowded out action and engagement with characters like an infestation of Silburian Slug Worms from the Obellian Galaxy.
If you put a book of eccentric British terms together in a blender and mixed them with some bad story telling and then had the result read out by one of the worse voice talents to read an Audiobook that I have heard, this is what you would end up with. It was crap and try as I might, I could not get through it. Bad character voices, mixed with a shocking story make this the worse purchase I have made from Audible to date. I hated it. I did not feel the presence of the Doctor in it for even one second. It could have been anyone.
