Format: Hardcover
A Doctor who novel, telling an all new story not seen on tv. It features the Eleventh Doctor and Amy. Like the previous novels in this range featuring the ninth and tenth doctor it's suitable for all ages and runs for 246 pages or so. To differentiate it from those previous novels the size of the pages is slightly larger and the cover design is all new, but the word count, page count and chapter count are still pretty much the same.

The story involves the TARDIS landing on the gyre. A world composed of bits of spacejunk that have drifted together and formed into a planet. It's the home of a humanoid alien race. Who don't get along with a group of humans who live there. The latter are descendants of a spaceship crew that crashed there long before, and have developed their own weird civilsation with some rather individualistic beliefs.

But the gyre is facing impending danger and it could be about to be destroyed. In one of two different ways. With clashing civilisations, a race against time, a separated TARDIS crew and a human adventurer who might have a hidden agenda, it's a race against time for the doctor to save the day.

Book can create worlds that you couldn't see on tv because the words can fire your imagination to create visuals that wouldn't be possible on the small screen. And that covers over well here, the whole setting being very imaginative. It also touches on some high concepts in regards to faith and belief. The race against time nature of the plot does make for a page turning read. Some books in this range have started rather slowly, but this one never lets up for an instant.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Keen Reader TOP 50 REVIEWER on 31 Oct. 2014
Format: Hardcover
This Eleventh Doctor novel was published in 2010, so is a story about quite an early period of the Eleventh Doctor's incarnation, when he is travelling with Amy Pond. The Tardis is responding to a trans-temporal distress signal and lands on something solid in the Battani 045 system. Amy is astounded to learn that in Earth relative time it is the year 250,039. And they're about to find themselves in the middle of a very urgent problem. Because where they've landed is an object called the Gyre, a bundle of shipwrecks and refuse brought together by gravitational forces of nearby stars, and the Gyre is attracting the orbit of a comet which, if it hits will have a devastating impact on inhabited worlds within twenty-five million miles. So the Sittuun have despatched a ship with a nanobomb to destroy the Gyre, but they crashed on it, the local inhabitants have been killing their crew, and the comet's about to hit. So now would be a really bad time for the Doctor to be captured by somebody else ... wouldn't it?

This was a really good early Eleventh Doctor story; there is a good mix of alien cultures in the story, and the Doctor and Amy are characterised really well. The story itself is well paced, and the action races along, and the background and narrative to the story are well thought out. Definitely recommended.

Format: Hardcover
not going in to the story as most have done this so ill anylize the plot,charecters ect

plot

its a diffrent prespective in that its humans invaiding aleins and i like that but it also featured a tired sub plot in that the humans have a re written past ( wont say more than that ) if they stuck to the invasion plot it would have been a very diffrent very epic book unfortunetly the sub plot kinda ruind it

setting

this was another on/off thing for me the junkyard was very well done ( then blown when the reason behind it was told ) and i found the aleins side to be generic but it adds to the story and its conclusion

villains

the humans and slipstream

the humans are intresting in that they live trough a vid screen i found it intresting and the humans are actully very nasty and you want them to die but you feel sorry for them too so it works on all leavels just wish the reason for the way they were wasent a cop-out

slipstream

please please put this guy in the 2011 xmas story or at least the season 6 2nd half this guy is excellent he,s cocky aragant ( not sure if this means the same as cocky) hes charming and very pesusive ( to amy that is ) oh hes a con man too seriously he is fantastic

the good guys

the doctor

hes very well wrritten i think the best you can imagine him is when he telling the humans about the reason why they are what they are this was very nicely wrriten ( when he tell them about the mentor) i love the 11th doctor hes more alein than 10th ( no disrespect to 10th ) and a lot darker the ending shows this

amy

not too sure about the scottish lass iam not too

Format: Hardcover
Night of the Humans is part of BBC Book's collection of novels based around the TV Series and features the 11th Doctor and Amy. Landing on a junkyard in space they find themselves caught in between a battle between two alien societies, the Sittuum and a futuristic but savage version of Humans. A devastating comet is on it's way to cause imminent destruction and they face a race against time to save themselves and everybody else.

This is a fun and quick read and I found it much more readable than my previous encounter with BBC Doctor Who books. I really liked the alien world of the Gyre and without being overly convoluted or boring the plot kept my interest and felt like a throwback to the classic series that I gew up with. There are lots of cool aliens and a good balance of action and humour that will probably satisfy many a Whovian. Lots of good characters abound and I particularly liked Dirk Slipstream who (in my mind at least) was definitely Ace Rimmer from Red Dwarf!

I grew up with the old Target books and although as an old git I don't get as excited (as I used to) with reading this kind of thing, it was an average entertaining read. A good beginning, a good middle and a decent ending. What more could you want?

3/5
