This novel was the first Doctor Who novel i’ve ever read and with hindsight i probably shouldn’t have simply started from no.1 and gone on from there. It wasn’t terrible, but neither was it that good. I think choosing to write about a subject-matter that’s already been portrayed in the TV series anyway was probably seen as a safe bet but in my opinion just doesn’t work. It was like re-reading a book after a short space of time, and just didn’t hold my attention as well as i’d hoped it might.
Having read the second novel as well at the time of writing, i can tell you that this was in fact a damn sight better than the second one, but still... doesn’t excuse the unoriginal storyline.
Just OK i’m afraid.
