Product Description

Product Description

The Eleventh Doctor and Clara land on an unknown alien planet. To the Doctor's delight and Clara's astonishment, it really is unknown. It's a planet the Doctor has never seen. It's not on any maps, it's not referenced on any star charts or in the TARDIS data banks. It doesn't even have a name. What could be so terrible that its existence has been erased?

I'm not sure if there is a theme to this latest series of Doctor Who ebooks but they've been nice surprises so far in that the first offered a new Fourth Doctor story a little more than a week or so after Tom Baker's return surprise appearance in the programme and this one is a new Eleventh Doctor story a couple of weeks after Matt Smith's last television episode.

The novella starts quite atmospherically and at times there is a real sense of dread. The Doctor and Clara spend much of the first half of the story floundering around avoiding the dangers of an unknown and undocumented planet. Nowadays it feels nice for a change for the Doctor not to know where the Tardis has arrived and see him work out where he is and what is happening alongside his companion. Whilst the reader too is unaware of what is going on the story is quite enjoyable and intriguing. Unfortunately once the situation is revealed the `revelation' feels a little anti-climatic and the story starts to tail off. Much of the latter stages seem a little too whimsical and fantastical. The story jumps a little too quickly from the threat increasing stage to the threat has been vanquished.

The crazy, silly side of the Eleventh Doctor is captured really well by the author but this is really the only side that really comes over in the story. The Doctor could do with being portrayed as a bit more contemptuous towards or sickened by the main antagonist.

Clara is very well characterised though. Her bold brashness is clearly apparent as is her sort of control over the Doctor.

3.0 out of 5 stars An alright read 7 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
*I received a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to Randon House UK, Ebury Publishing and Jenny Colgan*

The Eleventh Doctor and Clara arrive on a planet that doesn't exist but they soon discover how dangerous it is.

There were parts of this story that I liked (seeing more of the Eleventh Doctor with Clara and certain points of the plot) and parts that I didn't (certain points of the plot and I didn't find the story as engaging towards the end) but overall this was an alright read.

Exceptionally written, this marks a second brilliant entry in this new series of Doctor Who shorts. Picking on adult literary authors seems to be paying off!

The story is short, horrifying and worth your time. The real star is Clara, Colgan has managed to make an inconsistently written ( but brilliantly played) companion and made her fascinating again. Kudos!

When the Doctor and Clara land on a planet neither the Doctor nor the Tardis recognize, it doesn’t take long for the Doctor to want to start exploring. But the more of the planet they see, the further into danger they seem to be. As they try to navigate traps that seem to be alive, they start finding messages, and Clara’s fear grows. Can the Doctor help her through her fears, and does he know more than he is letting on?

I would classify myself as a fan of Doctor Who, but I have never read any Doctor Who books before. I didn’t really know what to expect when I started reading Into the Nowhere but finished knowing I will definitely be seeking out more Doctor Who books to read.

As it is a narrative, there is more explanation of thoughts and feelings than in a television episode, yet the action keeps the story fast-paced and exciting. It didn’t feel all that different from watching an episode, which gave me my Doctor Who adrenaline fix that honestly I wasn’t expecting a book to be able to offer. My main issue was that, while obviously a reading speed is slower than watching, this particular book felt a little short; it was as if the author had rushed through it and missed a lot of potential in the process. As I said, this was the first Doctor Who book I’ve read, but I’m hoping that they don’t all leave me with this feeling of being cheated of a full story.

Most of the book seemed to be in Clara’s point of view, and it gave me a completely different view of the character. In Into the Nowhere, Clara’s fear is stated many times, and a large part of me felt this wasn’t the Clara I knew.
