If you ve read my previous reviews on this series you ll know my view that Tom Baker and possibly Patrick Troughton aside there has been a lot of pretty good writing let down by both the length of these novellas and a feeling they weren t written for any specific Doctor at allStep forward Alex Scarrow and the Paul McGann incarnation of the Doctor Scarrow probably benefits from the lack of screen time as although there have been books and radio plays about this Doctor than just about any other those who have read andor listened to them will probably not be disappointed but nor will those who only saw the god awful feature length movie What Scarrow has done with this is write a good old fashioned Doctor story Is it the Eighth Doctor Who knows apologies for the pun Personally I d chose your favourite imagine him doing it and have fun A couple of references to Edwardian dress aside and it could be any of themMy reviews of other works in the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary E Shorts series1 A Big Hand for the Doctor2 The Nameless City3 The Spear of Destiny4 The Roots of Evil5 Tip of the Tongue6 Something Borrowed7 The Ripple Effect9 The Beast of Babylon

Summary Û eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ↠ Alex Scarrow

Tories a year long celebration of Doctor Who The most exciting names in children's fiction each create their own uniue adventure about the time travelling Time Lord. This was probably my favourite of the 50th anniversary short stories With the Eighth Doctor being my favourite Doctor that s no surprise What makes it even better is that Alex Scarrow is one of my favourite authorsI loved the fact that this book was set in America especially with how disastrous the TV movie is considered to be which was a pretty brave choice I thought that the twist on the alien virus was pretty cool and I really enjoyed it Despite the short length I felt fully immersed in the book I also liked the not a companion companion and the characterisation of the Doctor though in that it did come across that Scarrow had only watched the TV movie rather than listening to any of the audio novels that the Eighth Doctor is known for which probably would have made this short story even better

    There’s a sleight of hand you need to pull off to make a Doctor Who story work It’s the same trick you need for James Bond certainly the film incarnation and Indiana Jones in fact it’s a crucial element of all invincible hero stories Even though the readers’ or viewers’ minds tells them that all will

    Nice story nice horror And the Doctor's head gets invaded by a tentacle I liked it Very YA in style not surprisingly it's written by a YA author but it doesn't shy away from anything The Eighth Doctor's voice is spot on Also nice to see a companion with an Asian sounding name and not having any attention drawn
