|'Tales of Trenzalore'
by Tommy Donbavand
As it had been foretold, the armies of the Universe gathered at Trenzalore. Only one thing stood between the planet and destruction — the Doctor. For nine hundred years, he defended the planet, and the tiny town of Christmas, against the forces that would destroy it.
He never knew how long he could keep the peace. He never knew what creatures would emerge from the snowy night to threaten him next. He knew only that at the end he would die on Trenzalore.
Some of what happened during those terrible years is well documented. But most of it remains shrouded in mystery and darkness.
This is a glimpse of just some of the terrors the people faced, the monstrous threats the Doctor defeated. These are the tales of the monsters who found themselves afraid - and of the one man who was not.
'Tales of Trenzalore' documents four of the Doctor's adventures from different periods during the Siege of Trenzalore and the ensuing battle:
'Let it Snow' - by Justin Richards
'An Apple a Day' - by George Mann
'Strangers in the Outland' - by Paul Finch
'The Dreaming' - by Mark Morris

*In these stories we learn that the Doctor now has a wooden leg, to replace the real one he lost due to an incident with a blind Tsunami Snake in one of his many battles on Trenzalore! This explains why he las a limp and a walking stick in 'The Time of the Doctor'
