Maloney reads this original adventure by Dan Abnett, featuring the Eleventh
Doctor, Amy, and Rory
For centuries the Maintainers have worked. With no help from other worlds,
they subsist on the food they can grow and that’s little enough. But their
purpose, their whole life, is to maintain the machines that will one day make
their world as habitable as old Earth.
Life used to be hard. Now as crops fail, livestock sicken, and the
temperature drops, it’s becoming impossible. This year’s Winter Season Feast
won’t be the usual celebration. It’s no time for optimism or hope—or to
welcome unexpected guests. The Doctor, Amy, and Rory find a society breaking
apart—and then the Doctor’s old enemies the Ice Warriors make their
move. With the cold-hearted threat of invasion, the real battle for survival
begins. Or does it? The Doctor suspects that behind everything lies a
deadlier, even more chilling danger.
A thrilling adventure featuring the Doctor, Amy, and Rory, as played by Matt
Smith, Karen Gillan, and Arthur Darvill in the spectacular hit series from BBC
