- You may be looking for the titular book.
The Professor, the Queen and the Bookshop was the 2010 Christmas comic story from Doctor Who Magazine, and was therefore the current story when A Christmas Carol was enjoying its BBC One premiere. Presciently, it presaged the televised 2011 Christmas Special by telling a story based upon The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
This one, however, involved the Eleventh Doctor and a young Amelia Pond and Rory Williams in a heightened reality that feels like Narnia. Only on the final page do readers understand that C. S. Lewis has been reading a story, and that the story with the Doctor wasn't real.

In the book Edit
- This story is based on The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. The title is also a play on the book's title, as are the short story The Lying Old Witch in the Wardrobe and the television story The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe.
- The books are named after "scrapped" Who stories (Shylock, Scratchman, The Dark Dimension, The Master of Luxor, The Song of the Space Whale, The Imps) or books that the artist, Rob Davis wrote as a child, possibly including Zackzod, Doom Boxes, Blood Shed, Sirens of, and Titan. The most notable is the book Amy picks up, named Shada, after Shada.
