From popular author Jenny Colgan, a thrilling new adventure in which the latest Doctor battles Vikings, chess and an unstoppable fire....
"Now, you may or may not have noticed, but we appear to be on fire..."
On a windswept northern shore, the islanders believe the worst they have to fear is a Viking attack. Then the burning comes. They cannot run from it. Water will not stop it. It consumes everything in its path - yet the burned still speak.
The Doctor is just looking for a game on the famous Lewis chess set. Instead he encounters a people under attack from a power they cannot possibly understand. They have no weapons, no strategy and no protection against a fire sent to engulf them all.
The islanders must take on a ruthless alien force in a world without technology; without communications; without tea that isn't made out of bark. Still at least they have the Doctor on their side... Don't they?
A thrilling new adventure starring the Doctor, as played by Matt Smith.
“Well-written, amusing and Colgan perfectly captures Matt Smith's on-screen delivery in the dialogue”
“A terrific tale with some surprising twists and turns – more please! 8/10”
“A great story, told with flair and action to keep the fans glued to the pages”
“A page turner for the fans and perhaps for more casual viewers of the series, although Dark Horizons may not come to be known as a Doctor Who classic, it's an entertaining adventure for Matt Smith's Doctor.”
“A pitch-perfect take on the eleventh Doctor, packed with mystery and action.”
