Summer Falls By Amelia Williams

Intrigued by the book Artie was reading in The Bells of Saint John, written by one Amelia Williams? Well, it just so happens that you can read it from this week!

Doctor Who: Summer Falls by Amelia Williams

Jut when you thought Pond was stuck in 1940s New York, her presence continues to be felt in Doctor Who – but let’s be honest, it’s a nice touch, especially with dialogue like this:

Clara: What chapter you on?

Artie: Ten

Clara: Eleven’s the best. You’ll cry your eyes out… The good kind of crying….

Released this week, Summer Falls is another BBC eBook like Melody Malone, and you can find the synopsis below…

“When summer falls, the Lord of Winter will arise…”


In the seaside village of Watchcombe, young Kate is determined to make the most of her last week of summer holiday. But when she discovers a mysterious painting entitled ‘The Lord of Winter’ in a charity shop, it leads her on an adventure she never could have planned. Kate soon realises the old seacape, painted long ago by an eccentric local artist, is actually a puzzle. And with the help of some bizarre new acquaintances – including a museum curator’s magical cat, a miserable neighbour, and a lonely boy – she plans on solving it.


And then, one morning Kate wakes up to a world changed forever. For the Lord of Winter is coming – and Kate has a very important decision to make.

Summer Falls is published by BBC Books on Thursday 4th April 2013 in Ebook format, price £1.71

Wayyyy back to the days of the late William hartnell …….ok didn’t really understand it at 2yo but was in aww of the daleks and the best theme tune in the world but around 3-4 I staffed to like it even more and to now have a news letter published by other fans direct to your phone is just wonderful!………keep up the good work guy’s

    • Thanks Mike!

  5. I took a look at this and tried to purchase it, but to read the book requires a Windows-only propitiatory DRM Adobe product to be installed. If you don’t like, don’t have, or don’t trust any of those, then this book will not be for you.
