The bestselling author of more than twenty books - including Stardust, Coraline and Neverwhere - Gaiman’s story is titled Nothing O’Clock and features Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor:
"Thousands of years ago, Time Lords built a Prison for the Kin. They made it utterly impregnable and unreachable. As long as Time Lords existed, the Kin would be trapped forever and the universe would be safe. They had planned for everything… everything, that is, other than the Time War and the fall of Gallifrey. Now the Kin are free again and there’s only one Time Lord left in the universe who can stop them!"
