An upcoming anthology, comprised of festive fiction which sees the Doctor come up against various returning enemies, also promises to include material related to Time Lord Victorious, the multiplatform adventure which takes place in the Dark Times.
The Wintertime Paradox, written by Dave Rudden, is teased as having a “mystery piece of Time Lord Victorious story released alongside the book on its publication day”.
This collection of short stories follows similar titles released annually, making them ideal Christmas presents. Call me a sceptic, but I reckon that’s no coindicence.
Here’s the blurb for The Wintertime Paradox:
