“We should leave. We definitely should leave. But… chatty ghosts!”

The year is 1645, and Edinburgh is in the grip of the worst plague in its history. Nobody knows who will be the next to succumb – nobody except the Night Doctor, a masked figure that stalks the streets, seeking out those who will not live to see another day.

But death is not the end. The Doctor, Bill and Nardole discover that the living are being haunted by the recently departed – by ghosts that do not know they are dead. And there are other creatures lurking in the shadows, slithering, creeping creatures filled with an insatiable hunger.

The Doctor and his friends must face the terrifying secret of the Street of Sorrows – that something which has lain dormant for two hundred million years is due to destroy the entire city…

An original novel featuring the Twelfth Doctor, Bill and Nardole as played by Peter Capaldi, Pearl Mackie and Matt Lucas.

    BooBoo, all three book covers have changed. (Check the Amazon Page!) I personally hate how they look now and how they have the same picture of Bill but oh well.

    Doesn’t look like a sontaran to me, more like a robot

    Bill and the Doctor are wearing the same outfit in all covers… hope that the BBC doesn’t decide to uniform their outfits in all of season 10

      Who doesn’t love Rose’s red hoodie, or matt has maroon jacket, or Amy’s victory of the Daleks costume?

      Well Nardole will have the same other than shirt changes and a spacesuit in one story. 12 will have different costume variations and Bill has had a different costume in almost every story.

    When the cover of a book looks better than the DVD for series 10 part 1

      The artwork on the Series 10 Part 1 set is only temporary.

      It’s pretty modern these days for women to do that.

    Mentions the Night Doctor with what looks like a Sontaran helmet. Wonder if Strax is in this novel?

      No, that’s Nardole.
      Oh, you mean in the background? Hopefully!
