Meet the new Doctor Who classics! These are the first novelizations of new-era Doctor Who ever published, written and published in the style of the classic series novelizations. When a British space probe is intercepted by a sinister alien vessel on the eve of Christmas, it marks the beginning of an audacious invasion of the Earth by the Sycorax, horrifying marauders from beyond the stars. Within hours, a third of humanity stands on the brink of death with not a single shot fired. Our planet needs a champion, but the Doctor is not fit for service. He's just regenerated, delirious in a new body and a dressing gown. Forced into his battered shoes is his friend, Rose Tyler. Will she save the world from this nightmare before Christmas?
