Product Description

Book Description

An ancient spaceship and deadly illusions force the Doctor and Amy to doubt reality itself

Product Description

'Why are you here? I mean - who are you, exactly?'



An archaeological dig in 1936 unearths relics of another time... And - as the Doctor, Amy and Rory realise - another place. Another planet. But if Enola Porter, noted adventuress, has really found evidence of an alien civilisation, how come she isn't famous? Why has Rory never heard of her? Added to that, since Amy's been travelling with him for a while now, why does she now think the Doctor is from Mars?



As the ancient spaceship reactivates, the Doctor discovers that nothing and no one can be trusted. The things that seem most real could actually be literal fabrications - and very deadly indeed. Who can the Doctor believe when no one is what they seem? And how can he defeat an enemy who can bend matter itself to their will? For the Doctor, Amy and Rory - and all of humanity - the buried secrets of the past are very much a threat to the present...



A thrilling, all-new adventure featuring the Doctor, Amy and Rory, as played by Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill in the spectacular hit series from BBC Television.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still good old Doctor Who 27 July 2010
Format:Hardcover
I really enjoyed this book, it was written well and the plot just flowed just right, the ending I wasn't expecting either. Matt Smith's Doctor is really well shown in the story and I recommond it to any Doctor Who fan, who likes to be thrilled and yet laugh with it too :)

4.0 out of 5 stars They're coming 6 Nov 2013
By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
An original Doctor Who novel. Which tells an all new story for the Eleventh Doctor, Amy and Rory, never before presented in any other format.

It runs for two hundred and forty three pages. It's divided into a prologue and eighteen chapters. As usual with this range, it is suitable for readers of all ages. And the three leads are perfectly characterised, with dialogue you can imagine them saying on tv.

The story is set during the Eleventh Doctor's first tv season. Somewhere just past the middle.

The prologue details how a young girl once encountered the Doctor. And the result. You could be forgiven for thinking this is another re-telling of his first meeting with Amy. But there's the feeling that there is more to it than that.

After this, the TARDIS crew don't appear till gone page forty. As we get scenes involving alien spaceships and other aliens who are hunting them. Ancient Britons. Then a well characterised moment featuring a world war one veteran and his lady love finding something terrible in the countryside.

When the TARDIS finally arrives, it's in Britain in 1936. There's an archaeological dig near a manor house. A man who lives at the latter has been traumatised and warns of someone coming. Plus one of the servants seems to have their own agenda.

Why has the TARDIS brought the Doctor here?

And what lurks beneath the mound?

The pre Doctor pages are enough to keep you hooked. And then this does get rather good. It does take a while for events to really kick in, and spends a long time building setting. But the setting feels very convincingly like the period it's supposed to be. Events do then happen at just the right point to keep the plot moving along.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Rory fest 20 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
He's clever, he has hidden depths of warmth and compassion, he can diagnose medical conditions, he always has the answers to any problem, he can interface with alien technology with no former knowledge of it, he holds the hands of the sick and suffering, he helps all those around him. Yes, Rory is an amazing bloke.

Luckily we also glimpse the Doctor in this book. He falls down hills, he falls into sheep poo, he runs around and doesn't know what to do until Rory gives him the answers.

This book desperately needed proof reading before being published. The timeline is all over the place. We all know that the Vikings came to Britain around 1500 years ago. This book says that there were Viking settlements 4,000 years ago when the spaceship came. Later in the book this changes to 6,000 years. The disabled soldier was 37 in 1928 and is a veteran of WWI. OK. He is also 37 in 1936 and still a veteran of WWI. There is no sci fi business going on, the author just keeps making mistakes.

As for the plot, the woolly aliens cannot restart their ship due to damage 4,000 (or 6,000) years ago. They can now restart it even though it is more damaged, but they get their Glamour back. But they had their Glamour before, so why didn't they escape before? Sooo many plot holes. Short of changing the characters names every few pages the author seems to have little sense of continuity. Oh, hold on. He does change character names every few pages. The Glamour is an entertainment system, so how does it keep men immortal? So little thought put in. Ever since Capt Jack lived for a long time, we need more - apparently - we need more long lived men. Rory lived for 2,000 years, now we have this new bloke who watched alien TV and lived for 4,000 (or 6,000) years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 19 July 2010
By Melissa
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is probably my favourite of the Eleventh Doctor books, although "Night of the Humans" isn't far behind. It has a suitably original alien race in the Weave, some clever little things to make you keep guessing along the way, and some wonderful background and insights into the newest recruit, Rory Williams. An absolute must for Nu NuWho fans!

4.0 out of 5 stars Particularly mysterious 7 Oct 2013
Format:Hardcover
Plenty of occurances here that differ significantly from the normal situations in this series. It isn't until chapter 4 that the Doctor appears, and by then there have been several truly alien situations, real wild science fiction which is refreshing and interesting. Shape changing aliens and a wide range of characters, often with their own mental problems make the twists frequent and hard to guess. Rory comes over as caring, and Amy very strong-minded. Very enjoyable.
