Cover blurb:
'You want more time Mr Brown, of course you do. We all want more time. Let me make you an offer...'

Andrew Brown never has enough time. No time to call his sister, or to prepare for that important presentation at the bank where he works. The train's late, the lift jams. If only he'd had just a little more time. And time is the business of Mr Symington and Mr Blenkinsop. They'll lend him some — at a very reasonable rate of interest.

Detecting a problem, the Doctor, Amy and Rory go undercover at the bank. But they have to move fast to stop Symington and Blenkinsop before they cash in their investments.

A thrilling all-new adventure featuring the Doctor, Amy and Rory, as played by Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.

Cover blurb:
«VOUS VOULEZ PLUS DE TEMPS, N'EST-CE PAS? NOUS N'EN AVONS JAMAIS ASSEZ. JE VOUS PROPOSE UN MARCHÉ...»

S'il y a bien une chose qui fait défaut à Andrew Brown, c'est le temps. Sa course contre la montre fait de sa vie un enfer. Tout serait tellement plus simple si on lui accordait un peu de délai. Messieurs Symington et Blenkinsop, les rois du sablier, ont justement la possibilité de lui prêter de quoi différer le compte à rebours — à un taux défiant toute concurrence — à ceci près que les emprunteurs risquent leur vie sans le savoir. Le Docteur et ses compagnons flairent le problème et s'infiltrent dans la banque. Mais ils doivent faire vite avant que les usuriers ne recouvrant leur dette.

Une nouvelle aventure fascinante du Docteur, d'Amy et de Rory interprétés par Matt Smith, Karen Gillan et Arthur Darvill dans la spectaculaire série télévisée de la BBC.
