Doctor Who: Tales of Trenzalore (Kindle Edition)

tales-trenzDoctor Who: Tales of Trenzalore (Kindle Edition)

As it had been foretold, the armies of the Universe gathered at Trenzalore. Only one thing stood between the planet and destruction – the Doctor.

For nine hundred years, he defended the planet, and the tiny town of Christmas, against the forces that would destroy it.

He never knew how long he could keep the peace. He never knew what creatures would emerge from the snowy night to threaten him next. He knew only that at the end he would die on Trenzalore.

Some of what happened during those terrible years is well documented.

But most of it remains shrouded in mystery and darkness. Until now. This is a glimpse of just some of the terrors the people faced, the monstrous threats the Doctor defeated. These are the tales of the monsters who found themselves afraid – and of the one man who was not.

(Tales of Trenzalore documents four of the Doctor’s adventures from different periods during the Siege of Trenzalore and the ensuing battle:

Let it Snow – by Justin Richards
An Apple a Day – by George Mann
Strangers in the Outland – by Paul Finch
The Dreaming – by Mark Morris)

      it’s not just kindle, it’s the e-book format in general. print it and i’ll buy it, as i say e-books give me migraines so this new trend to e-books is very annoying, especially as i’ve collected who books for over 30 years!

    awesome, I hope there is a fight between the Daleks and the Silence

    I also hope it is released as a real book, with a kindle you cannot enjoy the cover, nor add it to your bookshelf, nor even enjoy the scent of the pages :neutral:

    Looks like his Trenzalore adventures were cooler than most of the 11th Doctor’s episodes actually made and shown!

    Please let this be released in book form!

    Am I the only one who is kind of bothered by the fact that the amount of time 11 spent on Trenzalore is the same amount of time the doctor was alive prior to 11?

      No, I don’t like it either.

    This will be available as a digital book, so all version will be covered Kobo, Epub, etc it just so happen Kindle are quick off the mark for pre orders. Although ive never seen the point in pre ordering Digital media, as I can buy it on release day and get it. Its not like a book that could be despatched earlier.

    Hurrah! Some of the best classic monsters! The Mara (from Deva Loka – the one on Manussa was black), The Krynoid, The Autons (From the aftermath of the Time War when their homeworld was destroyed) and Ice Warriors (from Skaldak’s era)

      I thought it said “Tales of Trenzalore- Kinda edition” when i clicked on the link and so wasn’t surprised when the Mara popped up!!!

      Why didn’t they use the sock puppet Mara for the cover instead of the CGI one? It would have been much more nostalgic, but mind you, modern Doctor Who doesn’t try to be.

    A bit unfair since not all of us have a kindle.

      There’s free Kindle apps for PCs, iOS, and Android. There’s even some third-party apps that can read the format.

    I wrote a fanfiction on set during his time on trenzalore and thought “huh, you know a story like this would be a cool release for a book” and what do you know, they release 4! :D

    Pretty sure a bit of the synopsis is wrong.

    It says the Doctor defended Trenzalore for 900 years.

    I’m certain it was only 300 years.

    • Posted by: I Froze Gallifrey

      January 15th, 2014 - 6:17pm

      It was 300 years the first time, but by the time he almost had no hair, it was 900 years apparently.

      I for one am certainly getting a bit confused as to how old he is meant to be. Perhaps when the show comes back in the Autumn things will be made a little clearer. For now I’ll stick to the premise that The Doctor lies!

    Look is like

    Let it Snow – Ice Warriors
    An Apple a Day – Krynoid
    Strangers in the Outland – Autons
    The Dreaming – The Mara.

    Matt’s face is much too smooth but still a great cover and sounds like a wonderful book too!

      Also will this ever come out physically as I don’t have a Kindle?

      January 15th, 2014 - 6:26pm

      I don’t know for sure, but they will probably make a few more eBooks and then release a physical collection, like they did with Melody Malone etc.

    But, I don’t see why they should keep returning to 11. Capaldi is the doctor now.

    • Posted by: booboo

      January 15th, 2014 - 4:55pm

      why shouldn’t they, they keep returning to ALL the past doctors in other books and audios what makes this so different

      January 15th, 2014 - 4:58pm

      Merchandise of a doctor always continues until the next doctor’s first episode, it’s the way it’s always been. David Tennant’s last episode was 01/01/10 but the audios/comic strips continued until april when Matt Smith debuted.

      The new doctor’s novels usually arrived a month or two after his first episode.

      It’s nice to see what happened during the times we missed in the xmas special, besides 11 was a great Doctor!

    • Posted by: Grand Poobah

      January 16th, 2014 - 2:17am

      Because the authors who’d write the books would have no idea how the Doctor would be played?
