On a remote human colony planet, under the cover of a protective dome, young Diana Winter summons the TARDIS.
Brought to her side by the power of a mysterious calling card, the Doctor and Clara are given one of their unlikeliest assignments yet. Yet it is one that will have far-reaching consequences.... Many years later, on the homeworld of the alien Golhearn, the time travellers once again meet Diana - but this time the stakes are much higher.
The Golhearn’s savage madness is threatening to destroy their own civilisation, and Diana has a personal reason to call for the Doctor once again.
Is he willing to assist, or must Clara go it alone? Can anyone discover the cause of the monstrous insanity that threatens them all?
Clare Higgins, who played Ohila in the Doctor Who mini-episode "Night of the Doctor", reads this thrilling original adventure by James Goss, part of the Tales of Winter quartet of stories.

A lovely mystery with many interesting character insights
James Goss continues to delight with this Twelfth Doctor story. A well-woven tale with many mysteries layered upon one another. Looking forward to the next installment.

Nice to get these characters together again
What did you love best about Doctor Who: The Gods of Winter?
Since it's been two years since we got to have the Doctor and Clara together, it was nice to hear them having a story together again (though I know this came out a while ago). It satisfied that particular itch and I'm glad it came from a writer like Goss, who I've enjoyed before. Plus, grumpy-12 is pretty much the best 12 and we get more of that in this story. Clara got to have moments of being the quick-witted and on-the-ball companion that I've always loved about her character and have missed having in the show.
What other book might you compare Doctor Who: The Gods of Winter to and why?
I've really enjoyed James Goss's work with Doctor Who novels, since he just nails the tone and voice really well. The Blood Cell is a great entry from him that mixes things up a little bit with how it tells the story.
What about Clare Higgins’s performance did you like?
Hearing anyone attempt to talk like 12 brings me joy, but she was a solid performer and narrator.
Any additional comments?
It's a nice nugget of a story and just satisfying to listen to. Satisfied the itch I've had for some 12 'n Clara adventures.
