What to expectIn the seaside village of Watchcombe, young Kate is determined to make the most of her last week of summer holiday. But when she discovers a mysterious painting entitled 'The Lord of Winter' in a charity shop, it leads her on an adventure she never could have planned. Kate soon realises the old seascape, painted long ago by an eccentric local artist, is actually a puzzle. And with the help of some bizarre new acquaintances - including a museum curator's magical cat, a miserable neighbour, and a lonely boy - she plans on solving it. And then, one morning, Kate wakes up to a world changed forever. For the Lord of Winter is coming - and Kate has a very important decision to make. Inspired by the Doctor Who episode The Bells of Saint John, this charming children's story is read by Clare Corbett.

taken outside of the Doctor Who universe it is an exceptionally sweet little story and beautifully read by Clare Corbett.
With its appealing characters, particularly the heroine, Summer Falls is a great children’s book in its own right, and there are enough allusions to the Doctor Who universe to keep die-hard fans intrigued.
