Product Description

Book Description

The Doctor and Martha are about to find out if a sonic screwdriver is more powerful than a six-shooter - from the bestselling series of Doctor Who sci-fi novels.

Product Description

The peace and quiet of a remote homestead in the 1880s American West is shattered by the arrival of two shadowy outriders searching for 'the healer'. When the farmer refuses to help them, they raze the house to the ground using guns that shoot bolts of energy instead of bullets...



In the town of Redwater, the Doctor and Martha learn of a snake-oil salesman who's patent medicines actually cure his patient. But when the Doctor and Martha investigate they discover the truth is stranger, and far more dangerous.



Caught between the law of the gun and the deadly plans of intergalactic mercenaries, the Doctor and Martha are about to discover just how wild the West can become...



Featuring the Tenth Doctor and Martha as played by David Tennant and Freema Agyeman in the hit Doctor Who series from BBC Television.

4.0 out of 5 stars go west 31 Dec 2007
By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
another tenth doctor novel, telling a new adventure for him and companion martha jones, in two hundred and thirty nine pages of relatively large print. As is the norm for this range. Also normal for this range the two main characters are perfectly captured on the printed page by the writer, and the book is suitable for all ages [although there are some deaths and a discussion of grief, but young readers should be able to handle it]

So is there anything to make this one stand out?

Yes.

The setting - the wild west of the 1880's, with the doctor and some aliens on track of a mysterious medicine man - is very well created. And this is quite appealing. The alien threat of the story is well realised, quite scary at points, and also quite original. The supporting characters are pretty good, and the plot keeps on moving and has some memorable moments.

It's quite an enjoyable read, and better than average. worth your time

5.0 out of 5 stars Peace in our Time (Machine) 18 Jan 2009
Format:Hardcover
Not since the much criticised William Hartnell TV story `The Gunfighters', has a Doctor Who writer so successfully set an adventure in the days of cowboys, outlaws and saloons.

James Swallow's `Sundowners' series has stood him in good stead to write a Doctor Who novel set in 1880s America; his depictions of Terminator-esque gunslingers, native Americans and other staples of the Western genre are all spot-on, and the extra-terrestrial invaders are both original and well-drawn.

The best thing about `Peacemaker' is that it sidesteps cliché and gives a fresh perspective to well-worn themes with his sinister quack healer and orphaned teenage boy, desperate to avenge his father's death.

Another hit in the increasingly impressive BBC original adventures range; Peacemaker should delight readers of all ages.

4.0 out of 5 stars doctor Who in the Wild West 7 Mar 2009
A Kid's Review
Format:Hardcover
The Doctor is in the Wild West with Martha. They arrive too late to meet the strange healer who's methods actually work. But they are in time to see the destruction two perculiar strangers, wanted for murder, do. But are these men what they seem? Is there a link between the healer and the strangers? What is the rather too peculiar-for-anyone's-liking gun the healer carries? And can the Doctor save the day again.
another good Doctor Who although it seems to drag on abit at the end. Beware, there is alot of murder!!!!
