Eleven Doctors, eleven months, eleven stories: a year-long celebration of Doctor Who! The most exciting names in children's fiction each create their own unique adventure about the time-travelling Time Lord.
London, 1900. The First Doctor is missing both his hand and his granddaughter, Susan. Faced with the search for Susan, a strange beam of soporific light, and a host of marauding Soul Pirates intent on harvesting human limbs, the Doctor is promised a dangerous journey into a land he may never forget...
*Featuring the First Doctor and Susan
*A Puffin Books 'Doctor Who' novel
*This novel was part of a series of ebooks published by Puffin over the course of 'Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary year; each book featured a different incarnation of the Doctor, and was billed as a 're-imagining' of the character; I am therefore not considering the story as canon
*The story was later released in paperback form in November 2013, in the anthology 'Doctor Who: 11 Doctors, 11 stories':
