This is the Gyre - the most hostile environment in the Galaxy 250,000 years' worth of junk floating in deep space, home to the shipwrecked Sittuun, the carnivorous Sollogs, and worst of all - the Humans.

The Doctor and Amy arrive on this terrifying world in the middle of an all-out frontier war between Sittuun and Humans, and the countdown has already started. There's a comet in the sky, and it's on a collision course with the Gyre . . .

When the Doctor is kidnapped, it's up to Amy and 'galaxy-famous swashbuckler' Dirk Slipstream to save the day.

But who is Slipstream, exactly? And what is he really doing here?

A thrilling, all-new adventure featuring the Doctor and Amy, as played by Matt Smith and Karen Gillan in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.

    " Only issue, it's too short. "

    " Decent story, decent characters, nothing overly special. I would give it 3 stars but for Arthur Darvill's wonderful story-reading skills that I never knew he had. He can do so many voices that don't even sound like him!!! I only wish Rory had been in the story too, not just Amy and The Doctor. So... not a bad book overall. "

    " Great story but I kept picturing the tenth doctor rather than the eleventh. "

    " This book was really enjoyable. While some of the other who books I read (all Ten) have a really good characterization of Ten--Eleven in this book was still being developed which is interesting and good at the same time because this presumable takes place right after The Beast Below as there are mentions of Amy running around on a ship in her nightie. I enjoyed that, bringing in little mentions of the previous adventures to give the reader a time line. It was also interesting to see mentions of past experiences of the Doctor like with Slipstream, it's not clear when the Doctor met him but he did and there was a past there. With the Doctor traveling around the universe and time as much as he does it's surprising he doesn't run into the same people a lot of the time. The nanties reminded me of the nanogenes that were introduced in The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances but with the opposite effect of deconstructing instead of making new. As morbid as it sounds I like that the Doctor couldn't save the 'Human's' they were too enraptured with their own fake history that they probably wouldn't have surprised on the real Earth anyways. But his reaction to losing them was an interesting one, and one we still don't really grasp even after Jamal said he saved billions more people than he realized. "

    " Wasn't the best one because I thought the humans in it were a bit weird, what with the "devolution" but the concept was cool. Not as time-travelly as the others though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Keith | 1/8/2014

    " Just like watching an episode of the TV show! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily (Lihua Lili) Petit | 1/1/2014

    " As Doctor Who stories go, this one really draws you into its world - such a memorable and thoroughly drawn civilization on a planet that's been living a lie. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alyssa Greatbanks | 12/18/2013

    " A very good book. True to the show and gave an interesting perspective on the human race. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 A Rae Crownover | 11/27/2013

    " Wonderful book. The dialog sounds just like an episode of the show. (view spoiler)[Having the humans be the bad guys was a very neat twist. (hide spoiler)] The imagery is fantastic. Had it not been a "Doctor Who" story, it still would have been a great book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Owl | 10/25/2013

    " This book was exciting to read but could have been better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alex M. | 10/1/2013

    " Pretty average. Decently entertaining for a book based on a television. Some amusing interactions between Amy and the Doctor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emma-Louise | 9/16/2013

    " While not my favourite Doctor Who book, the idea was a good one. Besides who doesn't love Dirk Slipstream? I was waiting for him to come out with - "smoke me a kipper!" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanna | 9/9/2013

    " Loved it! Characters in the books are just as they are on the TV show. Love this incarnation of the Doctor, and it is nice to be able to read the books in between watching the show. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne Barwell | 8/18/2013

    " This was a good story with an interesting look at the definition of 'alien' depending on your perspective. The characters were IC re the televised episodes. An enjoyable read but not a 'must have own copy'. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gareth | 8/6/2013

    " Extremely entertaining adventure that captures the mood of modern DW perfectly. Some wild space opera ideas and good characters. I raced through this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jordan Cross | 7/31/2013

    " These Doctor Who novels truly are brilliant entertainment. I thoroughly enjoy the story of this one in particular. It depicts humanity and an alien race in such an epic way. Just read this :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emmalee Miller | 7/4/2013

    " I loved this book. It's a nice complement to the series. It's wonderful to read these while waiting for the Christmas Special and the next season to air on television. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 1/17/2013

    " An unusual story with the humans being the enemy with a truly alien type setting, that has hints of Earth. It does feel like a Tv show storyline and all the characters act how you expect them to. An ok read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Etshadow | 6/17/2012

    " This book shows the early relationship of Amy and The Doctor. I do not see how well Amy knows The Doctor in such a short time. Also Amy is still in her night gown so I think this is before Starship UK. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 2/8/2012

    " Not a terrible way to get your doctor who fix. Not as good as the real show, but still a fun read. "

    " Oof. Cringe. Let's move on. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 H3dakota | 6/13/2011

    " Terribly boring. I'm SO not a fan of 11 & Amy, which doesn't help, but this story was just so boring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emma | 5/10/2011

    " While not my favourite Doctor Who book, the idea was a good one. Besides who doesn't love Dirk Slipstream? I was waiting for him to come out with - "smoke me a kipper!" "

    " I love that this is an early story of Amy and the Doctor. Pretty well-written too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 A Rae | 3/13/2011

    " Wonderful book. The dialog sounds just like an episode of the show. [spoilers removed] The imagery is fantastic. Had it not been a "Doctor Who" story, it still would have been a great book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel | 1/21/2011

    " The best of the first batch of 11th Doctor novels...although its good points are occasionally masked by too many moments of ridiculousness. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alexander | 10/31/2010

    " A bit drawn out... Can understand why it wasn't made into a show. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 9/19/2010

    " This was a good story with an interesting look at the definition of 'alien' depending on your perspective. The characters were IC re the televised episodes. An enjoyable read but not a 'must have own copy'. "

    " Acid lake= epic.
    If you love the Doctor, read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephen | 5/26/2010

    " New Doctor, new format to the book, new (and horrible!) logo...Nice interactions between the Doctor and Amy, which rang true (the "high five" bit was particularly well done) but the story was only so-so. It gets a little philosophical at the end, which was unusual but a nice touch. "
