A new Doctor Who eBook is to be released by BBC Books. The book will be “Summer Falls”, as wielded by Clara Oswald in the latest episode of
Doctor Who, “The Bells of Saint John”. The book, which is supposed to tie in with the episode, was seen on screen as written by Amelia Williams, a detail that harks back to a past companion of the Eleventh Doctor.
A synopsis has been released for the book:
“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.”
The eBook will be published on Thursday 4th April 2013. The Gallifrey Times will hopefully receive a review copy shortly so that we can review it.
