England, today. Between the housing estate and the motorway lies an ancient wood. The motorway bends to avoid it. Last week, teenager Laura Brown went missing. Tonight, Vicky Caine will miss her bus and take a shortcut through the wood. And she will disappear too. England, 1917.

Between the village and the main road lies an ancient wood. The old Roman road bends to avoid it. Tonight Emily Bostock and a man called Rory Williams will go to the woods. Investigating events in the present day and back in 1917, the Doctor and Amy are desperate to find out what's happened to Rory. He was supposed to look after Emily - and now they've both vanished. Something is waiting in the woods. Something that's been there for thousands of years. Something that is now waking up...A thrilling, all-new adventure featuring the Doctor, Amy and Rory, as played by Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.

Listener Opinions

    " A very interesting story. I rather liked the mystery aspect, along with the creepiness in the first chapter. This was my first Doctor Who Novel and it did not disappoint. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 2/15/2014

    " This is a great book to past time, I took this one down the fair when I was picking up my exhibits and waited a long time to get my projects. I enjoyed everything about it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 William | 2/15/2014

    " If you judge by the spin-off novels, Rory Williams seems to be a more popular character these days than either Amy Pond or the program's namesake. The latter two are fairly well characterized in "The Way Through The Woods" (except for a couple jarring and completely out-of-character pop culture references about role-playing games and the like), but Rory's clueless everyman is so easy to imitate (and offers such a better vantage than does The Doctor or a TARDIS-savvy Amy), authors apparently all want to have a go with him. You also notice pretty soon that however well written, The Doctor as a character is hardly present here. What keeps the novel afloat then is it's use of the conventions of time-travel: jumping into segments of a non-sequential story midstream, keeping the reader just out of pace with events, etc. Despite the nitpicking, this was a simply plotted but well told tale that you could imagine working as a show, and it's better than many of the episodes from the early days (faint praise here!). If you're a fan, it's worth the cost of admission. "

    " I just got this book yesterday! Anything Doctor Who is amazing (in my opinion). Great book, good writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gabe Dybing | 1/27/2014

    " These adventures remain a lot of fun for me. This one is clever and convincing, though the cover is quite misleading. There is no wolf (fox?) as scary as this one pictured here. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allison | 1/13/2014

    " Another great Doctor Who book! I wish this one had included more of the Doctor himself, but the dialogue was spot-on perfect in regards to similarity to the show. Loved it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sam | 1/9/2014

    " I Loved it! I need to find more to read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shandelirious | 12/27/2013

    " A quick, light read. A fair capture of the tv characters (it helps if you've seen the show.) Moderately good but somewhat forgettable story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel Kukwa | 12/22/2013

    " It's "Doctor Who" comfort food -- the plot is pretty standard haunted/creepy woods, with a bit of a twist. It's not a patch on the other two McCormack novels I've read, but it continues her great success with capturing the voices of the regular cast. A very pleasant distraction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 12/8/2013

    " Not as good as the last Doctor Who book I read, which did a great job of capturing the characters from TV on paper (or epaper as the case may be). This book felt a little less like it fit with the Doctor Who I know and love, but was goodnonetheless with an interesting plotline. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 11/24/2013

    " I just loved this book!! If you like Doctor who, read read read!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kit | 10/12/2013

    " Decent book. Probably a 2 1/2 stars but I'm being charitable and rounding up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zelda of Arel | 9/13/2013

    " I really loved this Doctor Who book. Partly because it really used the subject of time travel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Grant | 6/14/2013

    " A fun, light, read for fans of the Matt Smith Doctor Who (I wouldn't read this if you haven't watched the show). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emmalee Miller | 4/27/2013

    " 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 Alesia | 3/17/2013

    " A pretty good story & the characterisations are fairly good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 9/17/2012

    " Much better than McCormack's last Doctor Who book, The King's Dragon. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ebony | 5/30/2012

    " A nice little yarn. Read like a typical Doctor Who episode. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Orphal | 12/26/2011

    " Pretty good book. It reads like a two-part episode of the TV show. Not a great episode, but not bad either. My biggest complaint is how straight forward the plot is. Very few interesting turns. The central conflict resolves a bit too neatly and too quickly at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanna Warrens | 11/19/2011

    " I enjoyed this book. It is like watching an episode of Doctor Who in your head.The Doctor, Amy and Rory have dialogue just like the show so it is funny. It is perfect for when you are waiting the next series to start! "

    " Loved this one!!! On to the next one!!!!! "

    " An entertaining jaunt into the world of Doctor who "
