Tales of Trenzalore is comprised of four separate tales, each featuring a classic Doctor Who monster.
The Ice Warriors return in 'Let It Snow' by Justin Richards, 'An Apple a Day' by George Mann reintroduces The Krynoids, while the Autons are back in Paul Finch's 'Strangers in the Outland' and the Mara reappears in 'The Dreaming' by Mark Morris.
The tales are set during the 900 years that the Doctor spent defending the town of Christmas, as referenced in Smith's final outing, 'The Time of the Doctor'.
The book's blurb reads: "As it had been foretold, the armies of the Universe gathered at Trenzalore. Only one thing stood between the planet and destruction - the Doctor. For 900 years, he defended the planet, and the tiny town of Christmas, against the forces that would destroy it.
"This is a glimpse of just some of the terrors the people faced, the monstrous threats the Doctor defeated. These are the tales of the monsters who found themselves afraid - and of the one man who was not."
Doctor Who: Tales of Trenzalore is available to pre-order now from BBC Books.
