The Doctor was on Trenzalore defending a town called Christmas—and hell, possibly the concept of Christmas itself—for nine hundred years. That’s insane! We waited for Sherlock to come back for like two years, and it felt unendurably long, so nine hundred doesn’t even seem like a real amount of time.
In the “The Time of the Doctor,” we only witnessed the action from a few days out of those centuries, so naturally, there are far more stories to tell! The BBC is releasing a new book, Tales of Trenzalore, in which everyone in the universe comes to Christmas in an attempt to
assassinate Jabba the Hut defeat the Doctor. He never knows what the next threat will be, but he refuses to back down and let Christmas fall. The anthology features stories written by veteran Who authors Justin Richards, George Mann, Mark Morris, and Paul Finch, and will include some excellent villains like the Ice Warriors, the Krynoid, the Mara, and the Autons! Plus, it will give us just a little more time with the Eleventh Doctor.
