More About the Author

Paul's agent- Julian Friedmann at http://www.blakefriedmann.co.uk/

Paul Finch studied History at Goldsmiths, London, before becoming a cop in the north west of England. He then let his passion for writing allow him to follow a career in journalism. Now a full time writer, he first cut his literary teeth penning episodes of the British TV crime drama, THE BILL, and has written extensively in the field of children's animation. However, he is probably best known for his work in thrillers and horrors.

His crime debut novel, STALKERS, was a no 1 ebook best seller in 2013 and introduced DS Mark 'Heck' Heckenburg. This was followed last July 2013 by the sequel, SACRIFICE, and May 2014 by the third in the series, THE KILLING CLUB. The fourth, DEAD MAN WALKING, will follow in November 2014, with the fifth, HUNTED, in February 2015. The Heck series is also to be published in Germany, Poland, Turkey, Hungary, and Japan.

In addition to his Heck novels, Paul has had twelve books and nearly 300 stories and novellas published on both sides of the Atlantic. His first collection, AFTER SHOCKS (Ash-Tree Press), won the British Fantasy Award in 2002, while he won the award again in 2007 for his novella, KID. Later in 2007, he won the International Horror Guild Award for his mid-length story, THE OLD NORTH ROAD. His short novel, CAPE WRATH (Telos), was short-listed for the Bram Stoker Award in 2002, and several other collections of his stories and novellas have been published since, all of them well received by fans and readers. His horror novel, STRONGHOLD, was published by Abaddon Books in 2010, and the same year Pendragon Press published his highly rated festive terror tale, SPARROWHAWK. Paul has also written three DR WHO audio dramas for Big Finish - LEVIATHAN, SENTINELS OF THE NEW DAWN and HEXAGORA, and THRESHOLD, the pilot episode for the DR WHO spin-off series, COUNTER MEASURES. Paul's DR WHO novel, HUNTER'S MOON was published by BBC Books in 2011.

Paul is no stranger to film either, having written scripts for several horror movies. Two of these, SPIRIT TRAP and THE DEVIL'S ROCK, were released in 2005 and 2011 respectively, while his short story THE BELFRIES, is currently being adapted in Hollywood, and his movie script WAR WOLF is under development by Amber Entertainment.

Wearing an editor's hat, Paul is also responsible for the TERROR TALES series from Gray Friar Press, a collection of ghost and horror anthologies exploring the folklore, history and geography of the various regions of Britain.

Paul Finch lives in Lancashire, UK, with his wife Cathy and his children, Eleanor and Harry.

Format: Hardcover
'Hunter's Moon' takes the idea of rich businessmen and ex-soldiers importing big game animals to hunt but gives it a science fiction twist. Thus we get aliens hunting humans for sport. As such there are connotations with such things as 'The Running Man' and 'Battle Royale' which, despite Doctor Who's wide remit feel a little out of place.

It is a bit hard to buy the Doctor as some type of rich-boy, bounty hunter and the author doesn't doesn't manage to sell this convincingly. Perhaps the almost action-hero persona portrayed in this novel would have been better suited to the Doctor's third incarnation. The Eleventh Doctor just seems a little too easy going and comical to pull off acting the role of a killer.

Rory also has a more action orientated role that is hard to associate with him. In fact, all three series regulars don't quite live up to their TV personas. but the other characters of the book are quite detailed and thought out, especially Harry whose motivations convincingly explain his actions as he develops.

The most impressive element of the novel are the aliens. Whereas quite a few Doctor Who alien races seem to lack individuals within them the Torodon can easily been seen as a fully fledged civilisation. There are gangsters, business men, soldiers and civilians all with their own distinctive characters. This helps to provide a variety of convincing villains.

Overall the novel is a well thought out and concieved work of science fiction, despite lacking a bit of originality. However, if you want a Doctor Who story that matches the current series this is probably not for you.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was very impressed with Hunter's Moon probably because the way the story was told it felt like something like the events described could happen. An ex-policeman, his wife and child are kidnapped and transported to an alien world where they are forced to endure horrific confrontations. The whole concept sent shivers down my spine. The Doctor and his companions seemed surplus to the feelings I had for the kidnapped victims - the Doctor, Amy and Rory always get out of scrapes - but here was a group of humans facing something that could only be experienced in nightmares!
Well done, Paul Finch - love to see this book turned into a tv adventure...or would I? Other authors of Doctor Who novels could learn a lot from Mr Finch...in fact, so could the television production team!
Highly recommended!

What's Up Doc?
On Leisure Platform 9 gamblers & villains mix with socialites and celebrities, It's a place where you won't want to win the wrong game.

With Rory kidnapped by a brutal crime lord, the Doctor & Amy infiltrate a deadly contest where fugitives become the hunted, but how long before they realise the Doctor isn't a vicious mercenary & discover what Amy is up to? It's a game that can only end in death & time for everyone is running out.

Timelord Thoughts.
Writer Paul Finch has written a clever fun paced Eleventh Doctor adventures here which keeps the main focus on the character of the Doctor as writer Finch captures Matt Smith's bonkers eccentrics brilliantly in this audio adventure & yet doesn't quite grasp the characters of Amy Pond who is written quite bland here & loses that strong fiestyness of her tv counterpart while Rory is portrayed as a,lot meaner & harder edged who's more in tone with Danny Dyer than the likeable Rory Williams.

The plot slightly riffs on 'The Hunger Games' & sees our trio of time travelling adventurers end up on the wreck of a moon who along with some other humans fall prey to the rich who are preparing to hunt & kill them, bad guys include some bad ass alien gangsters who are written a little too cliche at times thinking there in 'Goodfellas' or 'The Godfather' but are entertaining nevertheless.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By M. Dowden HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 6 May 2011
Format: Hardcover
The Doctor decides to pop in on an old acquaintance on LP9, someone he hasn't seen since his first incarnation. Intending to pop in for a drink and a chat he encourages Amy and Rory to have a look around. It would seem just like a casual time out to relax and enjoy yourself, if things ever went smothly in the Doctor's life.

With Rory managing to gamble and lose the TARDIS, he and the machine are removed from LP9, with Amy in hot pursuit. At the same time on Earth, people are discreetly disappearing, abducted as prey for a deadly game being played on Gorgoron. Will the Doctor ever see his friends, regain the TARDIS, or be able to save anyone - including himself?

In a story full of excitement and adventure, the Doctor is pushed to the limits of his survival and cunning. With Amy forced to wear a skintight cat-suit, this would make a brilliant episode for tv.
