Cover blurb:
23 NOVEMBER, 1963

It is the day after John F. Kennedy's assassination and the faces of the dead are everywhere. PC Reg Cranfield sees his late father in the mists along Totter's Lane. Reporter Mae Callon sees her grandmother in a coffee stain on her desk. FBI Special Agent Warren Skeet finds his long-dead partner staring back at him from raindrops on a window pane.

The faces begin to talk and scream and push through into our world as the alien Shroud begins to feast on the grief of a world in mourning. Can the Doctor dig deep enough into his own sorrow to save mankind?

A thrilling, all-new adventure featuring the Doctor and Clara, as played by Matt Smith and Jenna-Louise Coleman in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.

Cover blurb:
23. LISTOPAD 1963

Britský kultovní seriál Doctor Who se zapsal do Guinessovy knihy rekordu jako nejdéle vysílaný televizní sci-fi seriál. Dockal se uvedení na ceských obrazovkách a nyní prichází v knižní podobe.

Vydejte se na cestu spolu s tajemným humanoidním mimozemštanem, který si ríká Doktor a cestuje casoprostorem vw své vesmírné lodi TARDIS. Závoj smutku nás prenáší do dob dávno minulých — je 23. listopad 1963, den po atentátu na Johna F. Kennedyho. Tváre mrtvých se vynorují odevšad, promlouvají a vykrikují... a derou se do našeho sveta. Dokáže se Doktor ponorit do svého smutku, aby zachránil lidstvo?

Cover blurb:
É o dia seguinte ao assassinato de John F. Kennedy - e o rosto de pessoas mortas começa a aparecer por toda parte. O guarda Reg Cranfield vê o pai na névoa densa ao longo da estrada Totter Lane. A repórter Mae Callon vê a avó em uma mancha de café na mesa de trabalho. O agente especial do FBI Warren Skeet se depara com seu parceiro falecido há muitos anos olhando para ele através das gotas de chuva no vidro da janela.

Então os rostos começam a falar e gritar. São as Mortalhas, que se alimentam da tristeza alheia, atacando a Terra. Será que o Doutor conseguirá superar o próprio luto para salvar a humanidade?
