Book Description

19 May 2005 DOCTOR WHO (Book 127)

The TARDIS takes the Doctor and Rose to a destination in deep space - Justicia, a prison camp stretched over seven planets, where Earth colonies deal with their criminals. While Rose finds herself locked up in a teenage borstal, the Doctor is trapped in a scientific labour camp. Each is determined to find the other, and soon both Rose and the Doctor are risking life and limb to escape in their distinctive styles. But their dangerous plans are complicated by some old enemies. Are these creatures fellow prisoners as they claim, or staging a takeover for their own sinister purposes?

Featuring the Ninth Doctor and Rose as played by Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper in the hit Doctor Who series from BBC Television

About the Author

Born in 1971, Steve Cole spent a happy childhood in rural Bedfordshire being loud and aspiring to amuse. He liked books, and so went to the University of East Anglia to read more of them. Later on he started writing them too, with titles ranging from pre-school poetry to Young Adult thrillers (with more TV and film tie-ins than he cares to admit to along the way). In other careers he has been the editor of Noddy magazine, and an editor of fiction and nonfiction book titles for various publishers. He is the author of the hugely successful Astrosaurs, Cows in Action, Astrosaurs Academy and Slime Squad series, and now the phenomenal Young Bond series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Return of the Slitheen 6 Jun 2005
By Jane Aland VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
The second of the initial three 9th Doctor novels features a momentous occasion that was bafflingly left out of the TV series - the 9th Doctor and Rose's first trip to an alien planet. Despite this momentous event however, it's not long before we're back in familiar territory, as the Doctor and Rose are captured and put into two separate prisons, and all the familiar prison-drama clichés are wheeled out.
Just when it looks as though The Monsters Inside is going to be a dull prison- breakout drama however, the Slitheen turn up, and things become a lot more interesting. Despite a rather nice costume design I'm not 100% convinced by the rather juvenile farting antics of the Slitheen on television, but their ability to disguise themselves as human drives much of the drama and suspense of this novel, with Rose never quite sure just who is human and who isn't. To add to the complexity we also have another family of Raxacoricofallapatorians on the loose, and Cole manages to blur the line between the traditional roles of good guys and bad guys to good effect.
It's by no means perfect, with an overabundance of technobabble and some rather bland supporting characters, but The Monster Inside is a fairly decent effort, and is recommended for all those who are frustrated by the fact that on television a Time Lord with a machine that can travel anywhere in the universe cant seemingly escape Earth's orbit.

5.0 out of 5 stars A surprise win! 19 Aug 2005
Format:Hardcover
Lovely! I approached this book with a certain amount of ariness, I must admit, after the disappointment of Justin Richard's needlessly complicated and rather condescending though admittedly entertaining Clockwise Men. Steve Cole has hardly been my favorite of Who authors as I usually find his writing to be stilted and dry, overall rather boring prose and difficult to read. Maybe it was the simplicity of writing for a younger audience (which of course they're denying they're doing but is quite obvious from the prologue that manages to explain the Doctor, the TARDIS and the general idea in not offensively simple terms) but I must say, he has pulled off what fellow 9th Doctor authors Rayner and Richards couldn't: a fun story, written in the style of the show with no needlessly complicated or unneccessary side-plots or characters.
The fact that it turns out to be a Slitheen story obviously means a fair amount of humor and most of the rather rude kind (the so-called SCAT-house being my favorite example!) and hearing Rose mention Justicia onscreen in Boom Town gives one a little bit of a smile as if you're in on the joke having read about their adventure within the penal colony system. Seperating the Doctor and Rose at first seems rather sketchy as I wasn't sure if he could manage to make the original characters they're obviously going to have to interact with interesting. And if he made even the smallest mistake with the main characters to begin with, the whole thing would collapse.
I'm happy to report that he doesn't make one misstep in his portayals of the regulars nor in his original characterizations.

3.0 out of 5 stars good book but why them 11 July 2009
By chace
Format:Hardcover
ok i love dark books the darker the better this book is no exception the doctor and rose lands on what looks egypt but turns out to be one of many prison planets this one a slave planet it dosent take long befor the two time travelers become involved and seperated the doctor to a planet where they are forced to work on various experements and rose to a girls prison planet this divece works fine as it allows the charecters to develop rose is traped with maniacs prison guards and fellow inmates ( as soon as she arrives a group of them wants to scalp her ) the doctor is forced to work on a gravity thing his fellow prisoners is an imagenations dream as some of the most beutifull things are there for you to think of including the guards wich are like bubbles lik globs wich attach to you if you make any trouble the 2ndcondery charecters are a mix match and can ether make you want to kill them youre selfs or just live with them now the bad part i wont mention their name but i could do without the toliet stuff ( sould give a hint as to what iam talking about ) i personally feel that the book and story would have been great without them i mean how about a haunted prison wiht the gelth ( unquite dead ) but nope its them i really dont like them and kinda ruins the story with all the refrences to their main trait but aside from this book is really good dark humor and setting esepechally the planet rose lands on ( wont say more than that ) but the nightmaresh images is outstanding

so *** for the story
