Book Description

28 April 2011 DOCTOR WHO (Book 151)

'As long as people have lived here, they've gone out of their way to avoid the woods...'

Two teenage girls disappear into an ancient wood, a foreboding and malevolent presence both now and in the past. The modern motorway bends to avoid it, as did the old Roman road. In 1917 the Doctor and Amy are desperate to find out what's happened to Rory, who's vanished too.

But something is waiting for them in the woods. Something that's been there for thousands of years. Something that is now waking up.

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 Doctor Who series from BBC Television.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lost in the trees 10 Mar 2014
By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
A Doctor Who novel. Telling an all new story never before presented in any other medium. Featuring the Eleventh Doctor, Amy and Rory. Set at an unspecified point somewhere in their second season.

It runs for two hundred and forty pages. It's divided into a prologue and thirteen chapters. As with all this range, it's suitable for all ages. And the main characters are perfectly recreated on the printed page, with dialogue you can imagine them saying on tv.

The opening shows us an ordinary part of present day Britain. With houses on the edge of woods. Woods that nobody goes into. Because as everyone knows, and has always known, if you get lost in them, you don't come out.

When urban legends of the woodland turn out to be true, and people vanish, the Doctor and friends are on the case. Will anyone manage to find their way out?

With a decently created setting, with a location and characters that feel very present day and thus convincing, this gets off to a good start with a chapter that describes one character going missing.

It then does things a little differently by going non linear with the narrative for a while. Scenes set in 1917 - involving one familiar face - and then scenes in the present day. At various times. This keeps the pace going very nicely, and the mystery involving, and the pages turn very fast.

Ultimately, though, plot wise, it doesn't do anything much different from what many Doctor Who works of this kind have done before. And the Doctor is rather absent from events for a lot of it, only popping up occasionally in the middle. However credit where credit is due as what may appear to be a cheap plot device at one point turns out to be anything but.

5.0 out of 5 stars Typically Doctor Who 20 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've just finished this book, in almost one sitting. A typical Doctor Who story with a quirky Doctor, good references to TV stories, confusing time effects, a touch of morality, and a satisfying ending. Easy to read without being simplistic, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and recommend it to Doctor Who fans of any age!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable if a little "Doctor light" 4 Sep 2013
Format:Hardcover
I did quite enjoy this. I think it was let down a bit by having so little of the Doctor in it. He only had a few scenes in prison for the first two thirds if the book. But it felt like it could have been an episode. There was good use of the world war 1 setting, a nice mystery and a great plot and resolution.
