Book Description

In the far future, the Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack find a world on which fiction has been outlawed. A world where it's a crime to tell stories, a crime to lie, a crime to hope, and a crime to dream. But now somebody is challenging the status quo. A pirate TV station urges people to fight back. And the Doctor wants to help until he sees how easily dreams can turn into nightmares. With one of his companions stalked by shadows and the other committed to an asylum, the Doctor is forced to admit that fiction can be dangerous after all. Though perhaps it is not as deadly as the truth.

Featuring the Ninth Doctor as played by Christopher Eccleston, together with Rose and Captain Jack as played by Billie Piper and John Barrowman in the hit Doctor Who series from BBC Television.

5.0 out of 5 stars refreshing! 8 Dec. 2005
Ignore the synopsis on the back cover of this book. It makes the story sound very unlikely and as if the deliberate suspension of disbelief would take a monumental effort. Surprisingly, it doesn't and the result is a wonderfully challenging story with great character writing for the Doctor et al. The subject is dealt with imaginatively whilst sustaining great credibility and some real old style DW horror regarding the mystery around some of the characters. Any of the other Doctors would have slipped rihgt in to this story in the 9th Doctor's place and the reader would not be shortchanged. My only whinge about this or any of the other new DW books (except for one) is that they are too short. This was one of the books that I couldn't put down when I started it, so I finished it the day I bought it... boo hoo!

4.0 out of 5 stars Stealers of Dreams 26 Oct. 2014
By Keen Reader TOP 50 REVIEWER
"Tolerate a lie, Doctor - any lie - and you open the way to madness."

The Ninth Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack have landed, and find they're on Colony World 4378976.Delta-Four. That's a fact, and that's all there is to know. Because to imagine anything else would be fiction, and that's lying, and that's against the law. Anyone caught breaking that law ends up in the Big White House, and you don't want that. But if someone is out there trying to show the inhabitants of Colony World 4378976.Delta-Four that there's more to life than just fact and what is `real', should the Doctor help him? And if Rose wants to help someone who's on the run from the law for propagating fiction, there couldn't possibly be any real danger of fiction becoming more real than is comfortable - could there?

Of course the Doctor, Rose and Jack get involved, and of course there's a lot of action packed running around and fleeing from figures of authority. It's all good fun, and there's a pretty good story in this overall narrative. Jack, the Doctor and Rose are all well characterised in this story, and it's a good Ninth Doctor story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Why we need the dreamers 3 Dec. 2014
Christopher Ecclestone's 9th Doctor Who, Rose and Captain Jack arrive on a colony planet in the future. In the planet's city something is wrong, society isn't as advanced as it should be. Fiction, dreaming, imagination and reaching beyond what we are has been banned for many years, enforced by sectioning to the Big White House where doctors 'rehabilitate' the rule-breakers.

But things are changing Between the official television channels' endless diet of news and factual documentaries a pirate TV channel is emerging from the static, challenging assumptions and the status quo. Obviously the Doctor and his companions are on the side of anarchy and freeing the people from their shackles, but the situation is more complex than simple oppression.

The best of Doctor Who, fiction that has us questioning our personal assumptions about what makes us human and the vital role to the future of our species of the dreamers, those like Einstein and Hawking who think beyond the confines of our world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast and enjoyable 9 Jun. 2009
A sharp, quick adventure with swift scenes and a gaggle of interesting characters. High point was the battle at the end - tense, realistic and dangerous, and the general idea of the book, which is a good solid sci-fi idea, with a nicely detailed society as a background. The bad points are that the Doctor and companions didn't seem to come over as strong and unified as other books, and I would've liked more of the monsters.

3.0 out of 5 stars My second Ninth Doctor book 6 Mar. 2011
By Rosie
Having been so thrilled by The Clockwise Man I got straight into reading this book. For a while I was really disappointed, then about halfway through it became exciting and I'm pleased I hung on in there.
