Doctor Who: Summer Falls by Amelia Williams is published by BBC Books on Thursday 4 April, priced £1.99.
Here’s a teasing excerpt:
“Clara: ‘What chapter you on?’
“Clara: ‘Eleven’s the best. You’ll cry your eyes out… The good kind of crying….’”
“When summer falls, the Lord of Winter will arise…”
And the summary: In the seaside village of Watchcombe, young Kate is determined to make the most of her last week of summer holiday. But when she discovers a mysterious painting entitled ‘The Lord of Winter’ in a charity shop, it leads her on an adventure she never could have planned. Kate soon realises the old seacape, painted long ago by an eccentric local artist, is actually a puzzle. And with the help of some bizarre new acquaintances – including a museum curator’s magical cat, a miserable neighbour, and a lonely boy – she plans on solving it.
And then, one morning Kate wakes up to a world changed forever. For the Lord of Winter is coming – and Kate has a very important decision to make.
