Publisher's Summary

"You want more time Mr Brown, of course you do. We all want more time. Let me make you an offer...."
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’d 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.
Detecting a problem, 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.
Read by Meera Syal, this is a thrilling all-new adventure featuring the Doctor, Amy and Rory, as played by Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.

One of the Best Doctor Who Listens to Date

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is one of the best Doctor Who audio book I have listened to so far. The performance is so good that I sought out other books performed by Meera Syal. This cautionary tale captures the quintesential Whovian style, eeping you just a half-step ahead of the story, yet occasionally throwing you off the trail.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Doctor Who: Borrowed Time?

The best moments would be spoilers, but the fates of certain characters are classic.


What does Meera Syal bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Meera's performance is outstanding, her voicing brings the characters to life.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes. But telling would be spoiling.


Any additional comments?

If you need your Who fix, this is the right drug.
