Doctor Who Borrowed Time Paperback

Available to order from

Andrew Brown never has enough time. No time to call his sister, or to prepare for that important presentation at the bank where he works. The train’s late, the lift jams. If only he had just a little more time. And time is the business of Mr Symington and Mr Blenkinsop. They’ll lend him some – at a very reasonable rate of interest.

Scenting something sinister, the Doctor, Amy and Rory go undercover at the bank. But they have to move fast to stop Symington and Blenkinsop before they cash in their investments.

Borrowed Time is a thrilling race against the clock from Naomi A Alderman, the Bailey’s Prize winning author of The Power featuring the Eleventh Doctor, Amy and Rory, as played by Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill in the spectacular hit Doctor Who series from BBC Television.

    The style of the cover matches the cover of her award winning novel the power. Makes sense to rerelease to tie in with her success.

    Makes me wonder why this is getting a paperback release when the hardback is still in circulation.

      I have never seen Borrowed Tune in any of the book shops before.

      Alderman’s becoming an award winning author in the meantime. Re-releasing it as a “Naomi Alderman book” rather than a “Doctor Who book” with a cover to match the format of The Power and her other books. It’s basically so that Alderman fans who aren’t Doctor Who fans can have nice matching shelves of all her books.

    This looks like a themed release with the Triple Knife. Maybe celebrating female authors?
