The Tenth Doctor’s first adventure, novelised by bestselling author Jenny T Colgan

Meet the new Doctor Who classics.

Earth is under attack by power-hungry aliens. This is no time for the Doctor to be out of action.

When a British space probe is intercepted by a sinister alien vessel on the eve of Christmas, it marks the beginning of an audacious invasion of the Earth by the Sycorax – horrifying marauders from beyond the stars. Within hours, a third of humanity stands on the brink of death with not a single shot fired.

Our planet needs a champion – but the Doctor is not fit for service. He’s just regenerated, delirious in a new body and a dressing gown. Forced into his battered shoes is his friend, Rose Tyler, a girl from a London council estate. Will she save the world from this nightmare before Christmas – or see it destroyed?

    I loved the original robot Santa designs they were so unnerving on the dark streets staring up at Mickey and Rose on the flat balcony. But I was glad of the redesign for runaway bride as I don’t think the old ones would have been as imposing in the daylight

    Strange they used an image for his final story when there are good pictures of him in his pjs

      I’m guessing it’s a deliberate ‘mistake’

      Also, the picture of Rose is from.Series 2 where she had the shorter hairstyle. They could have used one from the episode, plenty others they could have used to make the cover accurate.

      I think in this case its a “deliberate mistake” as a homage to the inaccuracies of the original targets, the artist has said so apparently
