I'm not sure it is fair of Aaron Murphy to leave a negative review of this book based on their opinion of the TV show. What did they think of the book itself? Was it well written and paced? Did the characters work, and did they relate well to their TV versions? Was the plot ingenious? How did it compare to other DW book authors and storylines? If you have an issue with the TV show why not go post a comment about it on one of the many DVD/BD product pages? Can you say why you think the books are boring? All opinions are equally valid and I value reading both good and bad to help me judge a product before purchasing it...Aaron's would be insightful I am sure if it were more specific to this book.

For my two pennies worth...I enjoyed this adventure. I am not a fan of the Weeping Angels, I find them a half-thought-through monster with far too many inconsistencies for my liking. But in this book, oddities of Dr Who lore to one side, Johnny Morris manages to do something unusual and different with them, weaving a funny, thought-provoking, romantic, tragic plot and placing the monsters in a new role. Unlike many recent DW books, this is not another chase story, but something more contemplative, more human. Johnny has crafted an altogether more adult adventure here, one that makes you think about your own relationships and loved ones.

As with the latest series, it is nice to see Rory growing as a character, with both the slapstick and heroic elements of his personality being given decent airtime. In fact, Rory fans get more Rory than ever before in this adventure, with The Doctor relying on him in the way he has only relied on Amy in the past. Rory has truly ascended to full companion status.

If you've not read Doctor Who tie in novels before then start here, Jonathan Morris' "Touched by an Angel", tells a complex story of time travel and the temptation to dabble in your own time stream that would leave Marty McFly stranded. Where these stories could end up disappearing in their own paradox this is well plotted and jogs along at a tremendous pace and is easy to follow and becomes very addictive. I'm not going to give the plot away but there was some tremendous emotional and sensitive writing that will leave you feeling moved by the end. These are characters you feel for, and when reading dialogue from the three regular characters, The Doctor, Amy or Rory you do hear the original voices in your head as you read.

After the Weeping Angels had reappeared on the programme for their second appearance I had honestly thought there was not much more that could be done with them, without spoiling their original creepiness and reinventing them beyond recognition. This books shows that these are durable adversaries for the Doctor with plenty of life in them yet.

Format: Hardcover
Out of all the new wave of spooks and alien monsters to become part of the Doctor Who mythos since its revival back in 2005, the Weeping Angels (created by current head-honcho Steve Moffat) are easily the best. Immortal stone statues that can only move when unseen, possessing frightening abilities, utterly cold and malevolent, virtually unstoppable and the only thing you can do...is NOT BLINK.

Much easier said than done.

The concept is unparallel creative genius, and in no time at all, the Angels have achieved the same notoriety and iconic status as more established Who baddies i.e. the Daleks or the Cybermen. And it's no surprise, really. 2007's BAFTA-winning masterpiece "Blink" (which debuted the Weeping Angels) and 2010's two-part sequel "The Time of Angels"/"Flesh & Stone" (a classic horror-ride) were Moffat's finest works. Moffat was able to produce some of the greatest episodes in the entire history of Doctor Who because of his highly original and unique concept, and simultaneously establish his creations as legitimately frightening foes.

But can such a VISUALLY brilliant premise work as well in a novel? Well, Jonathan Morris successfully proves that it can with Touched By An Angel, one of the latest in the Doctor Who series of hardbacks, featuring the Eleventh Doctor and his companions, Amy Pond and Rory Williams. Right away, I will say that this is another essential read for fans. It has everything you'd expect from a classic Who tale; psychological horrors, ethics being questioned, the consequences of time travel, characters you can emotionally invest in, and an overall impact that stays with you forever.

In 2003, Rebecca Whitaker died in a tragic road accident, leaving a widower in Mark. What makes the loss all the more painful...

First off the the person who wrote the one star review, fine if you don't like the show thats up to you. However you should not mark down a talented authors work so you can have a rant.

Now on to the book this is without a doubt the best Doctor Who novel i have read. The main characters are all spot on and the story itself is an emotional roller coaster. By the last few chapters this 45 year old man was finding it difficult to keep a dry eye!

I cant recommend this book enough, great story, characters and Weeping Angels what more could you ask for
