Book Description

1 Sep 2012 DOCTOR WHO (Book 265)

'There's no end to the horror in this place - it's like Hell, and there are devils round every corner.'

On Leisure Platform 9 gamblers and 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 and Amy infiltrate a deadly contest where fugitives become the hunted. But how long before they realise the Doctor isn't a vicious mercenary and discover what Amy is up to? It's a game that can only end in death, and time for everyone is running out.

A thrilling, all-new Doctor Who adventure featuring the Doctor, Amy and Rory, as played by Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The most dangerous game 18 Jun 2014
By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
An original Doctor Who novel, telling an all new story for the Doctor and friends that hasn't featured in any other medium. This one features the Eleventh Doctor, plus Amy and Rory. It takes place at an unspecified point early in his second tv season.

It runs for two hundred and fifty six pages. It's divided into forty chapters and a prologue.

The book is suitable for readers of all ages. As with all this range, the lead characters are perfectly well recreated for the printed page, with dialogue you can imagine the tv stars saying.

The story is a Doctor Who take on that old tale 'the most dangerous game'. Which has been the inspiration for many movies and tv shows and other literature. That of people being hunted for sport.

In this case the hunt takes place on a dangerous planet. The hunters are aliens. Some of the targets are humans. Not least Rory, who finds himself caught up in the middle of things. Plus Harry Mossop, a former policeman, and his family.

The Doctor and Amy are both working in different ways to save the day, and to stop the hunters...

The initial parts of this do take roughly seventy pages to set the situation up. Where this rates highly is with Harry and his family, as the narrative will often jump back to them before it joins up with the main story. This allows the writing time to make them really strong characters. They're pretty ordinary people. But they are very well written.

As is the rest of this. Amy, the Doctor and Rory all get decent action. The narrative jumping back and forth between them means they all get a good share of it as well. The result is a pacy and engrossing story that never lets up or fails to hold your interest.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
At over 250 pages and with smaller type than other books in the series this one was a bit more intimidating to start than others but it is easy to get into and keeps you guessing until the main story starts.
The main section takes place on a ruined industrial moon, with lots of different environments and challenges on top of the hunt they are all taking part in.
It is well written, exciting and with some great science fiction (floating discs were my favourite), and an absolute joy to read. I've read all of the new series of Dr Who adventures, and this is in my top two (the Last Dodo is the other). Unlike some recent ones, Amy isn't as annoying, Rory isn't as pathetic and the Doctor isn't quite as smug. The characters reveal alternate sides in the variety of scenes and difficulties, and it stayed interesting to the very end. Hope the series is finding a new vein of slightly more adult themes.

5.0 out of 5 stars This could be a film!!! 23 Oct 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have nearly all the main stream Dr Who novels and this one is the absolute best! (and I love them all) It's dark, it's humorous it's the Dr, Any and Rory at their best! It's a shame Amy & Rory are gone now as this would convert into a brilliant film! it's even better than The Dr Trap (my previous favourite)Very much recommend this book!
