Publisher's Summary

The Great Time War has raged for centuries, ravaging the universe. Scores of human colony planets are now overrun by Dalek occupation forces. A weary, angry Doctor leads a flotilla of Battle TARDISes against the Dalek stronghold but in the midst of the carnage, the Doctor's TARDIS crashes to a planet below: Moldox.
As the Doctor is trapped in an apocalyptic landscape, Dalek patrols roam amongst the wreckage, rounding up the remaining civilians. But why haven't the Daleks simply killed the humans?
Searching for answers the Doctor meets 'Cinder', a young Dalek hunter. Their struggles to discover the Dalek plan take them from the ruins of Moldox to the halls of Gallifrey, and set in motion a chain of events that will change everything. And everyone.
Read by Nicholas Briggs, the 'voice of the Daleks' in Doctor Who, this epic novel of the Great Time War features the War Doctor as played by John Hurt in the hit BBC TV series. Reading produced by Neil Gardner.Sound design by Simon Hunt.Executive producer: Michael Stevens.

Nick Briggs delivers a great entry for Doctor Who!

This novel brings so much more to the War Doctor than we we able to see in the 50th anniversary special. Even though he is considered his own regeneration, it's very easy to see him in this story as an older Eighth.

The companion was the best kind of all - completely human. No deep connection with the Doctor's past, no superpowers, just an ordinary person doing extraordinary things.

The narrator, Nicholas Briggs, has been voicing the Daleks (and several other DW villains) since the series' revival, and is also the producer for the Big Finish audio dramas. His absolute understanding of the characters in this universe lent itself well to his portrayal.

Well done to George Mann! I look forward to more of your work. Thank you for your story.
