Book the Ninth
4 out of 5 Stars
So, I needed to switch up genres a little because there are WAY to many schmaltzy Romance Christmas novels…. not like I don’t love a good Romance! But, I’m sure you guys want to hear about something different and I wanted to READ something different!
Well, my geeky little heart could not turn this one down! A compilation of short stories starting with the First Doctor and ending with the Twelfth (duh…) all written by different Authors. I was worried that these stories were just going to be Fan Service and I would just be reading about your typical Daleks, Weeping Angels, Cybermen, etc…. kind of boring. But, NO! There is mention of the regular things we know and love, but these were very interesting new stories with interesting and new problems! I was surprisingly pleased!
“Whats’s all this about Christmas?” asked the Doctor.
“We were just indulging in a spot of Nostalgia.” Ian replied, “remeniscing about long ago.”
“The past is never ‘Long Ago’ when you have a Time Machine!”
I recommend this book as a nice easy read that you can pick up and put down whenever you have a spare moment. It’s a Doctor Who Fan’s Christmas Miracle!
The Twelve Doctors of Christmas is Best Served With
A Tardis Shot
So, I enjoyed the book so much I had to make up a new drink for it, I couldn’t think of anything better than a pretty layered shot to look like the Tardis! (I know… not very Festive…but, still delicious!)
- Blue Curacao
- Lemon Drop Liqueur
- Blue Food Colouring
- Take a shot glass and pour Blue Curacao 1/3 of the way up the bottom of the glass
- Place spoon (round side facing up) just with the tip in the liquid and slowly pour the Lemon Drop Liqueur another 1/3 up the glass
- Mix Vodka with a little Blue Food colouring in a separate shot glass
- Place spoon back in with the tip barely in the Lemon Drop and slowly pour the Vodka mixture over the back of the spoon
