Number 1, Gallows Gate Road

The BBC Doctor Who Advent Calendar has opened its fourth door today, marking the date, the 4th December. Today's feature is a new story, called Number 1, Gallows Gate Road. It is part 1 of the story, and so we can presume that there will be at least one following part in the future. It is written by Rupert Laight, and the illustrations for the story are by Brian Williamson. You can see this story here, or view a snippet of it below;

The Doctor was standing in a small attic bedroom with a low, sloped ceiling and peeling, yellowed wallpaper. It was furnished simply with a narrow single bed and a chest of drawers, on top of which were his clothes, neatly folded.

He turned back to the dust-covered window and saw what had been making the tapping sound. The uppermost branches of a tall oak tree were scratching against the pane.

Got to find out what's going on, thought the Doctor, and he pulled on his clothes and flung open the bedroom door.

'Hello, Doctor,' said a voice on the brink of breaking. 'Did you sleep well?'

You can see the advent calendar on the main page here.
