November Books 9) Nothing O'Clock, by Neil Gaiman

This was the last of the monthly Doctor Who ebooks produced this year, sending off the Eleventh Doctor in style with a short story by Neil Gaiman. This brings Amy and the Doctor to what seems at first a normal house with a normal little girl, and then the world starts to change in unexpectedly horrible ways - there are shades of Coraline and of a couple of the Sandman arcs here, but that's not a bad thing.

This wee series of books is presumably going to be published in hard copy as a single volume in time for the Christmas market. It will be a good buy, though consumers should be warned that the first story, Eoin Colfer's "A Big Hand For The [First] Doctor", is by far the weakest.
