You want more time Mr Brown, of course you do. We all want more time. Let me make you an offer....

Andrew Brown never has enough time. No time to call his sister, or to prepare for that important presentation at the bank where he works. The train's late, the lift jams. If only he'd had just a little more time. And time is the business of Mr Symington and Mr Blenkinsop. They'll lend him some - at a very reasonable rate of interest.

Detecting a problem, the Doctor, Amy and Rory go undercover at the bank. But they have to move fast to stop Symington and Blenkinsop before they cash in their investments.

Read by Meera Syal, this is 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.

    " Doctor Who: Borrowed Time is a crazy book. At Lexington Bank, the biggest bank in the whole entire world, has a ton of employees. They are expected to get a humungous project done in an hour. How? There are these weird people who give you watches. This special watch you can borrow time. If you go back a day, it will only affect you, and no one else. However, there is interest. Five minutes per hour, per hour. But when the weird people tell you the interest rates, they say the second per hour very quietly. When you pay back, the watch sucks out the time from your lifespan. If you borrow and you have a ton of unknown interest, and you pay back, you die, and you're a skeleton. Amy got one without realizing the danger, and doesn't pay back. Then the weird people start turning into shark people... "

    " 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. "

    " Really enjoyed this book. I liked how the author took the concept of needing more time and made it into an alien plot. Also enjoyed the characters. Very good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Breeanna | 1/24/2014

    " This book read just like an episode of Doctor Who. Such a fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ness | 1/16/2014

    " Much as I like Naomi Alderman, her distinctive style and the fact that she wrote a piece of DW fanfiction, the plot of this story did not really click with me. It was a bit much somehow, especially for the kid's department. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/4/2014

    " I'm starting to find that mostly these Doctor Who books all have similar plots... something's wrong with time. But they're still really fun to read and are really great at helping me get through my Doctor drought until Christmas. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Monroe | 12/15/2013

    " This was a fun read. These New Adventures books are hit and miss. Compared to the old Target Doctor Who books, they tend to be a bit YA for my tastes, but once in a while, a good one comes along. This would be one of those. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matthew Vandrew | 12/14/2013

    " Brilliant idea - The Doctor's adventure with interests, banks, floor and loan sharks taken a bit literally. Rory has some unexpected smart ideas, Amy has some dumb ideas. Interestingly, I was getting pictures of the 9th Doctor in this adventure, somehow he fitted better than 11th. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 11/28/2013

    " I would give it 3 and a half stars if I could. The story was one of the more entertaining and clever DW books that I've read. However, it still lacks some charm from the show. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Craig Andrews | 11/28/2013

    " A really good Who adventure. A bit predictable in parts but the story and the characters were strong enough to carry it through. It felt just like a TV two-parter actually :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jolabrese | 11/16/2013

    " An ok book. I found that the characters did not always act like themselves. Though the story is good to see you through any doctor drought on tv. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Courtney | 11/3/2013

    " Definitely gives new meaning to the term Loan Shark. An enjoyable read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tim | 6/27/2013

    " Liked the book...a bit too long, but it got the characters' patter down perfectly. However, I LOVED the reader. Meera Syall was fantastic. "

    " The Doctor, Amy, and Rory infiltrate the Lexington Bank in London where people are being tempted with 'extra time' by the mysterious Mr. Blenkinsop and Mr. Symington. But as the Doctor and his friends learn, what's borrowed cannot be so easily returned. "

    " Hmmm-mmm. A Time-Lord that can't tell when time is being messed with THAT much? Ha, right. No, sorry, terrible idea. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Luke | 8/19/2012

    " A nice little read, the doctor who books are fun and easy to read. This was no exception. It reads like an episode, but can get more timey wimey. Good stuff "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alyssa Greatbanks | 7/2/2012

    " Not one of the best Doctor Who books I've read, but it was still pretty good. It's fast read with a solid story, and even a few good jokes thrown in. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Callie | 6/15/2012

    " I'm not usually one for fan fic lit, but I really enjoyed this little adventure with The Doctor, Amy and Rory. It felt like a real episode of Doctor Who and was well written. I might just read more! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gints Romanovskis | 2/10/2012

    " It was ok. I found some aspects of it to be cheaty, but it's Doctor Who - it works best if you try to analyze it only halfway. I'm also a bit disappointed that the complex time travel mechanics are hinted at but never even really observed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 TheDoctorXVI | 1/3/2012

    " I LOVED this book! I know you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but this one looked cool, so I picked it up. "
