PC Reg Cranfield sees his late father in the mists along Totter's Lane. Reporter Mae Callon sees her grandmother in a coffee stain on her desk. FBI Special Agent Warren Skeet finds his long-dead partner staring back at him from raindrops on a window pane. Then the faces begin to talk, and scream... and push through into our world.
As the alien Shroud begins to feast on the grief of a world in mourning, can the Doctor dig deep enough into his own sorrow to save mankind?
A thrilling new adventure from the spectacular BBC series, starring Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman.

Too corny, even for the Doctor.

What disappointed you about Shroud of Sorrow?

Frances Barber is a great actress, but she can't do a Texas accent. It was very distracting listening to her try.

What was most disappointing about Tommy Donbavand’s story?

The story was not very well developed. The premise of the JFK assassination was flimsy, not much about it in the story. Not sure I can explain without spoilers sweetie; but clowns on another planet?

What didn’t you like about Frances Barber’s performance?

She does all the British accented characters very well, she just needs to stay away from Texas accents.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Overall I was disappointed in the story.
