Publisher's Summary

'For a few moments this afternoon, it rained on the moon...' An astronaut in full spacesuit appears out of thin air in a busy shopping centre. Maybe it's a publicity stunt. A photo shows a well-dressed woman in a red coat lying dead at the edge of a crater on the dark side of the moon - beside her beloved dog 'Poochie'. Maybe it's a hoax.
But as the Doctor and Amy find out, these are just minor events in a sinister plan to take over every human being on Earth. The plot centres on a secret military base on the moon - that's where Amy and the TARDIS are. The Doctor is back on Earth, and without the TARDIS there's no way he can get to the moon to save Amy and defeat the aliens. Or is there? The Doctor discovers one last great secret that could save humanity: Apollo 23.
This is a thrilling, all new adventure featuring the Doctor and Amy, as played by Matt Smith and Karen Gillan in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.

Nice for fans, Worth a go for others

As a long-time fan of Doctor Who (dating right back to the original series in the 1980s) I was recently ecstatic to discover that the vast majority of the New Adventures are available unabridged on audio.

This is the first of the 11th Doctor novels. As I fan I really enjoyed it, the book captures Matt Smith's doctor and in particular his companion Amy Pond perfectl, and being set (and written) in the early days of their time in the show was a nice throwback to those early episodes and the dynamic between them where they're still a little unsure and gaining trust in each other.

The story itself is a good one, in fact I'd go so far as to say that there's enouh here fo this to appeal to non-Who fans, as the first "Matt Smith" novel it could be a useful introduction to the show.
