Format: Hardcover
Big Finish's 8th Doctor Who anthology plays heavily off of their 8th Doctor & Charley audio range, with Charley waking up on a mysterious airship and listening to the stories of the various other crew members, all of whom, like her, seem to have upset the Web of Time...
Of the sixteen stories the best concern the 3rd Doctor apparently causing someone's death, leaving him trapped as a ghost unable to communicate with his old friends; the 1st Doctor finding himself trapped into ruining the life of a schoolboy by his own future actions; and a tramp who's life is saved by the 8th Doctor questioning his motives.
Reasonable stories concern the 8th Doctor uncovering illegal genetic experiments on Gallifrey; the 7th Doctor unwittingly bringing someone back to life; a rag & bone man picking up alien technology discarded by the 1st Doctor at Totters Lane; the 6th Doctor facing execution for interfering in history; the 1st Doctor on trial for murder; the 4th Doctor getting involved with the outbreak of the Great Fire of London; the 5th Doctor both initiating and preventing the assassination of Margaret Thatcher; the 4th Doctor meeting mythical wolf people in Australia; and the 2nd Doctor confronting a magician who has summoned a demon to destroy the timelines the Doctor has woven around the Earth.
The only really poor stories feature the 3rd Doctor encountering the Master and various technobabble concerning time-loops; the 5th Doctor going undercover to trap a cheesy gangster aided by alien technology; a bland tale of the 2nd Doctor combating an Oil Baron in the Wild West; and a tedious tale of diplomats after a 6th Doctor adventure.
All in all this is a fairly downbeat collection, but the linking story of Charley helps immensely, and despite the inevitable odd misfire this is one of Big Finish's better collections.

This ebook edition is not a legal edition and should not be up for sale. Had a confirmation email from the real publisher, Big Finish, this morning. DO NOT BUY THIS ILLEGAL EBOOK VERSION!

Interesting. Good? Maybe. 9 Sept. 2008
By Sandlapper - Published on
Format: Hardcover
In the usual sense, this book is not "good".
But I gave it four stars! Why?

It's simple. Doctor Who is at it's best when it makes you think. About morality, politics, religion, or cosmology. When Doctor Who seeks only to entertain, it fails miserably (Yes, I'm looking at you, "Tooth and Claw"), or falls into utter banality, (Hello, "Time and the Rani").

So what about this book? Some of thse stories excel, The Diplomat's Story, The Tramp's Story, The Inquisitor's Story, and the Republican's Story among them, are wonderful examples of great Doctor Who, and really explore the central theme of consequences.

A few, like The Time Lord's Story are straight adventure yarns, and totally miss the mark on the central theme.

Some, like The Juror's Story take an interesting concept... and totally botch it. The Juror's Story will ONLY make sense to someone who's very familiar with every Doctor's era.

One, The Seismologist's Story, just doesn't make a whole lot of sense at all.

And one, The Schoolboy's Story, is the finest example of the theme of this collection. It explores the Doctor's character as, "I know this decision will not be good for those involved, but the Web of Time requires me to do it. What do I do?"

THe problem is, I don't care for the answer the book concludes on. SPOILERS WILL FOLLOW

Ultimately, the book concludes the Doctor is practically a "slave" to the Web of Time. Hold on... does anyone remember "Father's Day"? Nine found a way to change the history of his companion without consequence until Rose touched Rose. Contrast that to this book's theme that the "Web of Time" is absolute, and it is found wanting. The worst offender, despite it being a very good story, is "The Diplomat's Story." It's obvious Kathryn Sullivan can write, too bad she wrote for some other character calling himself "The Doctor" in that story.

All in all, a good collection of stories. A couple stinkers, but that's to be expected. Bt most are entertaining and thought-prevoking at the same time, and that's how I like my Doctor Who.
Horrible editing 26 Jun. 2013
By Jeanvieve Warner - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love Ben Aaronovitch. So much that I'd pay the full price again to get a version of this book that's edited well enough on Kindle to be readable. The Kindle version is nigh illegible due to spacing and editing problems. Shame on you, Amazon, for putting out something so shoddy from one of my favorite awesome writers.

Ben - no reflection on you. I'll still marry you.
Was this edited on a phone?? 27 May 2013

Format: Kindle Edition
I tried to read it despite all the typos and words running together likethis. But after several pages of that plus random punctuation in the middle of words, I got fed up. Glad it was a Kindle Library selection, so I'm not out any money.
