Naomi A. Alderman is an English author who wrote the Eleventh Doctor BBC New Series Adventures novel Borrowed Time.
Alderman's prose debut was the 2006 novel Disobedience, a story about a rabbi's daughter who comes out as a lesbian. That successful work was followed by another novel, The Lessons, in 2010.
Apart from novels, Alderman is known for writing a regular column on technology for the Guardian.
With the 2011 publication of Borrowed Time, Alderman became the first Jewish woman to write a licenced Doctor Who novel.
She returned eight years later to write the Thirteenth Doctor short story Time Lapse for the anthology Thirteen Doctors, 13 Stories.
A longtime Doctor Who fan, Alderman has cited Peter Davison as her childhood favourite Doctor.
One of her favourite stories is The Masque of Mandragora. A reference to the Mandragora Helix appears in Borrowed Time.
