David Troughton reads four original stories set in different periods of the Siege of Trenzalore, featuring the Eleventh Doctor as played by Matt Smith.
"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.
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 900 years he defended the planet and the tiny town of Christmas against the forces that would destroy it.
Some of what happened during those terrible years is well documented. But most of it has remained 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.
David Troughton, who has appeared several times in Doctor Who, reads these four original stories.

It's all about battles
I'll still read other Doctor Who books, but I'll be more careful of the type of story I choose.
All battles, all the time. Fighting, battling, out-witting the enemy. No companions. Very little human interaction, very little amusing or clever banter.
I'm not a fan of this book. I should have thought about it more before I bought it, it's during a time when the Doctor has no companion so it's ALL battle all the time. My favorite parts of the Doctor Who series are the story interactions between him and the friends he brings along on his adventures. But this story is about 4 battles he had on Trenzalore before he became the 13th doctor. If you like stories about fighting then by all means, buy this book. For me, not so much.
