Time Shadows: Second Nature


Everywhere he goes, the Doctor is confronted by mysteries and marvels, danger and delight. Along the way, the Doctor encounters a medieval knight in a supermarket; some time-displaced Vikings; a weapon from the Time War; a stain on his office carpet, which poses a threat greater than Bill can imagine; and so much more.
He brings hope to the oppressed; he never gives up and never gives in. To the Doctor, that is Second Nature.

Time Shadows: Second Nature is a collection of twenty-three Doctor Who short stories, by the writers listed below, which was originally created for the charity CODE. Unfortunately, it can no longer be sold, but you can download an electronic version below:
