5.0 out of 5 stars Also takes photos., 15 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite an amazing camera. Not the easiest thing in the world to get to grips with, thanks to the hundreds of setting for each video type, but well worth spending the time to learn. Very quick to set up and achieve professional results. Apparently it also takes photos.. fancy that?

4.0 out of 5 stars A good Doctor, 14 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I’ve just started reading the BBC 8th Doctor novels, so it’s taking me a bit to get used to the characters and pacing (compared to the Virgin new and missing adventures), but I found this work, by Martin Day well rounded.

It’s aimed at more mature readers and holds your interest without going over the top with swears and sex. The characters are solid and the 8th Doctor is pretty much as you’d like him to be, which is nice. The story is compelling and I actually cared about most of the characters - not something I could say about some of the other novels in the range.

5.0 out of 5 stars There will be blood, 29 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a pretty gritty, second doctor story. Lots of good characterisation and action.

The plot was a novelty blend of I Claudius, The man in the Iron Mask and various space marine movies.

I'm catching up on many of the older Dr Who novels and it was good that this chap warranted a reprint for the 50th anniversary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ace, 29 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book was great fun. Didn't know what to expect from a 3rd doctor story, written by a best selling author, but I should of guessed it would be good.

Great characterisation and a lot of nice nerdy detail for us old time fans.

It was good to see the master before he was mental, with a head full of bongos.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's so cute!, 26 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is amazing!

That's all I need to say.

Really, it's ace go buy one. Even if you don't need a wireless adapter, or have a computer, you just want this because it's tiny and good.

It also has a nice interface.. The mini cd that comes with the install data can be used or you can download from the Edimax site, if you don't have a disk drive. I was really surprised by the data transfer rate I was getting, nearly as good as a cable connection - but much cuter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Large protective floor mat - that works, 25 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as I have a new carpet and didn't want to rip it to bits with my crap old office chair.

When it arrived in a huge flat pack I guessed it may be a bit more hard wearing than the rolled up poly ones: I was right. It's a well made, solid thing with a textured top surface and grippy underside.

Been rolling about on it for 2 weeks with a chair made out of spare parts and there's no cracks or wear on it. I could probably use it as a riot shield in an emergency and it would still do the job. It's well worth the price.


Doctor Who: The Wheel of Ice

5.0 out of 5 stars Doctor 2, that's who, 17 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've read quite a few of the recent Doctor Who novels, some have been great fun, some limp and forgettable. Wheel of Ice, by hard core SF writer Stephen Baxter is like a really expensive script from the later Pat Troughton episodes that never got made.

The characterisations are well handled and it's easy to imagine the actors saying the lines Baxter has written for them.

The science and science fiction are blended in Baxter's usual intricate fashion. What could seem dry and over technical exposition is well handled and fits with the story.

I look forward to more tales by recognised authors, this was an entertaining and enjoyable read.


Doctor Who: Touched by an Angel: The Monster Collection Edition
Doctor Who: Touched by an Angel: The Monster Collection Edition
Price: £2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Touching Angels, 7 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've tried reading some other Doctor Who novels, based on the recent series character of Amy and Rory, but they have either been faintly upsetting or big cat's pants.

Touched by an Angel, is different. Written by Jonathan Morris, a regular writer for the books and audio plays, the novel hits all the right notes and manages to capture all the aspects of the characters that make them unique. It also has a good and straightforward plot, with enough time twists to keep everyone happy.

Very good location detail and dialogue make this much more enjoyable than many of the other books in the series, and it acts as a good companion piece to the show.

At some times I was sure it was based on parts of my life, but only the lame college disco and holiday in Rome with a cute girl - as so far I haven't been followed by angels in TV sets.

I would recommend it for any who fan, but particularly those in their mid to late 30s: as they'll know all the tunes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Space 1899, 5 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting book, if only for the fact that the writer doesn't seem to have heard of Doctor Who or seen a recent episode. The plot and language would seems to have came from a 19th or early 20th century novel, while the doctor, Rory and Amy are without any of the personality or mannerisms recognisable to their characters.

I can only think this was a story waiting for some vehicle and dr who came along and filled some character slots.

I gave it 2 stars as I really don't like giving anything 1 star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than memory, 2 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sapphire & Steel has not been repeated on terrestrial TV since the original 6 stories were aired in the early 80's. As a result many people have a half memory of some of the episodes, which like some other TV memories from that time don't live up to a second viewing. Sapphire & Steel is not only as good as you remember, it's better.

For anyone that saw the original broadcast this excellent collection is well worth buying. If you haven't heard of the series before it is just as fun.

Although the 2 series did suffer from massive under-funding, what they lack in special effects they make up for with good solid writing and atmosphere. A true classic of British television.
