Rachel catches the same commuter train every morning. She knows it will wait at the same signal each time, overlooking a row of back gardens. She's even started to feel like she knows the people who live in one of the houses. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life - as she sees it - is perfect. If only Rachel could be that happy. And then she sees something shocking. It's only a minute until the train moves on, but it's enough. Now everything's changed.
"Lie, apologise, repeat"
Zagreus sits inside your head. Zagreus lives among the dead. Zagreus sees you in your bed and eats you when you're sleeping....
Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house not a creature was stirring.... But something must be stirring. Something hidden in the shadows. Something which kills the servants of an old Edwardian mansion in the most brutal and macabre manner possible. Exactly on the chiming of the hour, every hour, as the grandfather clock ticks on towards midnight. Trapped and afraid, the Doctor and Charley are forced to play detective to murders with no motive, where even the victims don't stay dead.
Jude's family are crazy, quirky, bizarre. Her mum brings her nothing but trouble and her dad thinks he's Elvis! All she wants is a hassle-free life, but it's not easy when she's chasing a trail of broken promises. Things go from bad to worse, but could the floppy-haired boy from school be her knight on shining rollerblades?
"LOVE Cathy Cassidy"
The Doctor and Charley decide to take a well-deserved break from the monotony of being chased, shot at and generally suffering antisocial behaviour at the hands of others. And so they end up in Venice, well into Charley's future, as the great city prepares to sink beneath the water for the last time...which would be a momentous, if rather dispiriting, event to witness in itself.
The human race is locked in deadly combat with the android hordes in the Orion System. Light-years from the front line, the Doctor and Charley arrive to sample the dubious delights of a galactic backwater, little suspecting that the consequences of the Orion War might reach them there. But High Command's lust for victory knows no bounds.
Shakespeare, the ginger tabby, otherwise known as Agent 009, never officially signed up to protect the Cook children, but in world-famous Spy Dog's absence, he is most definitely the best pet for the job.

"I love thisbook it is admasin"
Lara, or GM451 as she is known by the government, as a highly trained special agent, bred by the British Secret Service for use on dangerous missions around the world. Even in retirement, Lara's sharp spy instincts always give her a nose for mystery. There's more to the Cook's holiday than meets the eye, and it's down to Lara to sniff it out.
"Spy dog 2"
Spud is scatty and accident-prone, but good with gadgets. Star is super-smart, and ready to pounce. Together they're Spy Pups, following hot in the paw prints of mum Lara (that's Licensed Assault and Rescue Animal to you). In their first mission, Spud and Star are staying at Smuggler's Cottage, with its creaky floorboards, dark hidden tunnels - and a castle with a legend of hidden gold nearby! Soon the Spy Pups are sniffing out an underground adventure....
The web of time is stretched to breaking. History is leaking like a sieve. In the Citadel of Gallifrey, the Time Lords fear the end of everything that is, everything that was...everything that will be. The Doctor holds the Time Lords' only hope - but exactly what lengths will the Celestial Intervention Agency go to in their efforts to retrieve something important from within his TARDIS? What has caused Imperiatrix Romanadvoratrelundar to declare war on the rest of creation? And can an old nursery rhyme about a monster called Zagreus really be coming true?
The grisly serial killings of prostitutes and vulnerable women in Victorian Whitechapel, dubbed by the popular press as the work of 'Jack the Ripper', are the talk of London, and from deep within the smog-ridden slums, yet another piercing shriek is heard. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John H. Watson are drawn into one of the darkest plots ever to shake the foundations of England. There are freemasons, conspiracies and plots at the highest level of the establishment.
The Doctor has always admired the work of William Shakespeare. So he is a little surprised that Charley doesn't hold the galaxy's greatest playwright in the same esteem. In fact she's never heard of him. Which the Doctor thinks is quite improbable. General Mariah Learman, ruling Britain after the Eurowars, is one of Shakespeare's greatest admirers, and is convinced her time machine will enable her to see the plays' original performances. Which the Doctor believes is extremely unlikely.
