Sypnosis from Goodreads:

We should leave. We definitely should leave. But… chatty ghosts!”

The year is 1645, and Edinburgh is in the grip of the worst plague in its history. Nobody knows who will be the next to succumb – nobody except the Night Doctor, a masked figure that stalks the streets, seeking out those who will not live to see another day.

But death is not the end. The Doctor, Bill and Nardole discover that the living are being haunted by the recently departed – by ghosts that do not know they are dead. And there are other creatures lurking in the shadows, slithering, creeping creatures filled with an insatiable hunger.

The Doctor and his friends must face the terrifying secret of the Street of Sorrows – that something which has lain dormant for two hundred million years is due to destroy the entire city…

An original novel featuring the Twelfth Doctor, Bill and Nardole as played by Peter Capaldi, Pearl Mackie and Matt Lucas.

My Review:

This was honestly such an awesome, fun read! As I read it, I felt like I was watching a Doctor Who episode; honestly the pacing was exciting, and I could see the characters saying their lines and everything! The premise definitely intrigued me from the start, and I was constantly trying to figure out what would come next; see, the writing wasn’t at all predictable, there were a lot of twists and feels! I loved all the side characters, Annabell was so sweet and brave, Thomas and Isobel were amazing and I couldn’t help but adore Catherine and Betsy! I would honestly read a sequel based on these characters!

I definitely recommend this to all fellow Whovians!

Until next time, happy reading 🙂
