Book Description

31 Aug 2011 DOCTOR WHO (Book 111)

"Sing about the past again, and sing that same old song. Tell me what you know, so I can tell you that you're wrong."

Gallifrey. The Doctor's home planet. For twenty thousand centuries the Gallifreyans have been the most powerful race in the cosmos. They have circumnavigated infinity and eternity, harnessed science and conquered death. They are the Lords of Time, and have used their powers carefully.

But now a new force has been unleashed, one that is literally capable of anything. It is enough to give even the Time Lords nightmares. More than that: it is enough to destroy them.

It is one of their own. Waiting for them at the end of the universe.

Featuring the Eighth Doctor as played by Paul McGann, this adventure was published to mark the thirty-fifth anniversary of Doctor Who.

3.0 out of 5 stars It has all the pieces; it just doesn't add up 11 Mar 2012

Hmm, not sure what to make of this book - written for the thirty-fifth anniversary of Doctor Who, so published in 1998, I know that's quite a few years ago - so pre-the 1996 Paul McGann ninth Doctor movie, but pre-any of the current TV series. So, bearing that in mind, what does a reader who is familiar with Doctor Who make of it?

To start with, precisely WHICH Doctor is being written about in this book (or is there more than one in the various timeframes?) is never made clear. While a clever writing strategy, it actually backfires (in my opinion) because there is never room for the Doctor to be characterised - his particular personality, which in each incarnation really is quite unique, is never allowed to break through into the characterisation in this novel. And that's a shame.

Secondly, although much of the book is set on Gallifrey (which is a great plus for any Doctor Who fan), it seems the author never really took the opportunity to make the most of this setting. The characters, the places, the culture of Gallifrey never really gets out into the open. Again, that's a shame.

And the story? Well, to be honest, I found it all a bit confusing. I get the premise; I get the threads with the "ancient enemies", the time travel, the cunning plans of Rassilon, the ancient Timelord plots - but does it all hang together? Not really. It's not really a good Doctor Who story; and it's not really a good science fiction story. Great premise; unfortunate delivery.
