'You want more time Mr Brown, of course you do. We all want more time. Let me make you an offer...'
Andrew Brown never has enough time. No time to call his sister, or to prepare for that important presentation at the bank where he works. The train's late, the lift jams. If only he'd had just a little more time. And time is the business of Mr Symington and Mr Blenkinsop. They'll lend him some - at a very reasonable rate of interest.
Detecting a problem, the Doctor, Amy and Rory go undercover at the bank. But they have to move fast to stop Symington and Blenkinsop before they cash in their investments.
A thrilling all-new adventure featuring the Doctor, Amy and Rory, as played by Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.
There are people in this world who will perfectly understand why, when I had an idea for a Doctor Who novel, I had to ask the BBC to let me write it. Even though I am a proper serious novelist who writes about very important subjects and wins literary prizes and stuff. And there are other people who will not understand.
The people who will not understand are, unlike me, people who perhaps spent their teenage years meeting boys and going to "parties". There was once a time when I could recite all the names of all the Doctor Who companions off by heart, in the order they appeared in the show. For some reason, when I was a teenager, boys thought I was weird.
I had an idea for a Doctor Who book. I wrote it. It got shortlisted for an award and everything. I regret nothing.
