Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]

Travel through time and space with the Twelfth Doctor in these six brand new adventures, set in a host of locations across the US and eras from throughout US history.

An invisible spacecraft turns up at the Battle of New Orleans, an alien presence is detected at the 1944 D-Day landings, and ghosts take over New York's subway tunnels as they're being dug in the early 1900s...

Filled with mystery, excitement and the Doctor's trademark wit, these timeywimey stories will delight any Doctor Who fan.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • In a November 2016 interview, Justin Richards indicated that these stories could be seen as taking place prior to the loss of Clara Oswald in Face the Raven and could be seen as examples of adventures the Doctor participates in while "leaving her to get on with some teaching." [1] As the Doctor's sonic screwdriver is featured in several of the tales, these stories would need to take place, therefore, prior to the events of the opening scene of The Magician's Apprentice, after which the Doctor stopped carrying a sonic screwdriver until the conclusion of Hell Bent and Clara's departure.
