The ninth Doctor and Rose land in 1920s London, where they meet a number of people with largely mysterious backgrounds. There are robots and exiled royals and cats and a sick child, and all in all it's a rather fun little tale. However, as much as I enjoyed this story, it didn't feel all that specific to Doctor Who. Heck, the Doctor had neither TARDIS nor sonic screwdriver for the majority of the book. Neither he nor Rose spoke like their television counterparts. He didn't even ever say, "Fantastic!" ( )

It's a quick, fun read if you're a fan of the Doctor, but its not going to win any literary awards. ( )

Engaging and suspenseful, with excellent characterization, this Who book brings back my favorite Doctor and lets him shine. Even if the plot is a little far-fetched at times, it's a good short enjoyable Who romp. ( )

Good solid story from Justin Richards - and it was great to have one more adventure with the 9th Doctor! ( )

This is the first Doctor Who novel that I've read and I was quite pleased with it. The e-book version I'm reading didn't have a cover, so I wasn't sure which new Doctor it would be, but the dialogue style was so spot-on that I could tell it was the 9th Doctor almost immediately. The adventure is solid and entertaining with some good twists; I could picture it as an actual episode.

3.5 stars because it was better than "Fair", but I probably won't reread it. ( )
