'Yes,' said the Doctor, indicating the date at the top of the page. 'It's 23 November 1963. We're in Dallas, Texas - the day after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.'
This is the third of the three Eleventh Doctor novels published this year, and the first one to feature Clara - it may at this rate turn out to be the only Eleven/Clara novel, depending on the BBC's publication plans for the rest of the year. It's not the only story to be set on 23 November 1963, but it's also not the worst, using the backdrop of Kennedy's death for an alien being that feeds off sorrow, with some nice descriptive moments and considerable continuity service. It will set the scene nicely for younger readers wanting to sense the history of the show in advance of next month's celebrations.
