Doctor Who: Tales of Trenzalore: The Eleventh Doctor’s Last Stand

BBC Books is giving us a last adventure with the Eleventh Doctor, with an e-book featuring four new stories from the 900 year siege of Trenzalore, Tales of Trenzalore: The Eleventh Doctor’s Last Stand. Let it Snow by Justin Richards will feature the Ice WarriorsAn Apple a Day by George Mann reintroduces The Krynoids,  the Autons will appear in Strangers in the Outland by Paul Finch and The Dreaming by Mark Morris will feature the Mara.

Here’s the official synopsis.

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 nine hundred years, he defended the planet, and the tiny town of Christmas, against the forces that would destroy it.

He never knew how long he could keep the peace. He never knew what creatures would emerge from the snowy night to threaten him next. He knew only that at the end he would die on Trenzalore.

Some of what happened during those terrible years is well documented. But most of it remains 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.

At the moment it is only available for pre-order in the UK from BBC books and will be released on the 27th of February.
