2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Captain Pugwash on 18 Dec 2008
Format: Hardcover
This original Doctor Who novel from BBC Books is a definite grower. My first impressions were that it was going to be a re-hash of `Planet of the Ood' from series four of the revived TV programme, however, these fears proved to be unfounded as Mike Tucker has crafted a fast-paced, edgy and downright scary Doctor Who adventure.

The eponymous `snow globe' is part of an ambitious project in Earth's near future to save the remnants of the Polar ice-caps after global warming has devastated them. The Tenth Doctor and Martha Jones arrive in the globe and immediately find themselves locking horns with some terrifying flesh-eating Insectoid aliens, who have inadvertently been scooped-up along with the ice...

Unscrupulous businessmen, greedy criminals, trigger-happy soldiers and bewildered medics are all Doctor Who staples; Mike Tucker has taken these classic ingredients and shaped them into a gripping and original story, using topical themes and pitting our heroes against some of the deadliest monsters ever encountered.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Keen Reader TOP 100 REVIEWER on 8 July 2013
Format: Hardcover
This story features the Tenth Doctor (as played on tv by David Tennant) and his companion Martha Jones. The story is set on Earth in 2099, with global warming having now become a primary issue for humanity. In Snowglobe 7, one of the areas designated as a global conservation area, something other than just ice is waiting.

This is a really good Doctor Who story; I enjoyed the characterisations of the Tenth Doctor and Martha, and the storyline itself went along at a great pace. The other characters in the story were all well portrayed and acted out the usual human responses to being confronted by something mysterious and dangerous; greed, ambition, fear, courage and humanity. Great stuff; definitely recommended.

Bad points:
There are many characters in different locations, and jumping from one to the other can get complicated unless you have the luxury of reading for a long time; The monster is poorly described but by its habit of rushing around makes examination unnecessary; I was unsure why a novel about ice was based in Dubai; the spaceship and cave paintings were underused.
On the plus side, Martha is especially good, being constantly concerned about medical matters; the outdoor locations are atmospheric of a luxury beach holiday; the nature of the beast was good; the story kept throwing up new threats and perils.
Overall, not the best in the series and better to read in long chunks.

By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 1 Aug 2010
Format: Hardcover
A Doctor Who novel that tells an all new story never seen on the tv screen. It features the Tenth Doctor and his companion Martha. It runs for 256 pages. It's suitable for all ages to read. And the characterisation of the two leads is spot on and you can well imagine the two actors saying all the dialogue.

The story sees the Doctor and Martha arrive in the middle east in the year 2099 only to land not on a hot beach but in the middle of a frozen wasteland. This they soon find is part of the polar ice cap that has been taken here in order to be perserved in the wake of global warming.

Humans and humanoid aliens run the place. But they face problems in funding and from big business who want to get involved.

And there's also something deadly inside the globe itself. Which is starting to get out...

With a big setting and lots of supporting characters, all of whom have believable motivations that are well characterised, this one does take a little while to get into and you might struggle to keep up with all the characters at first. But it's worth sticking with because it does present a story a little different to the norm for this range. The monsters are a good creation and quite original, and it never hammers home the points about global warming, just makes the reader think about it for themselves.

Once you get into this one you'll find it to be an above average entry in this range.
