Doctor Who: Nothing O'Clock: Eleventh Doctor: 50th&hellip by Neil Gaiman
3.0 out of 5 stars Kin good., 4 Dec 2013
There was a lot of potential here. A good portrayal of The Doctor and Amy, the spooky masks, the ancient and malicious Kin that (nearly) outlasted the Time Lords. But the story was let down by a weak ending. The basic idea (and the title) is great, but it was too easy. You can almost hear the Kin say "Oops!", or "Curses! And I would have managed it if it hadn't been for you meddling Time Lord!"

2.0 out of 5 stars Grrr!, 4 Dec 2013
I was really looking forward to this one, since David Tennant is my favourite Doctor, but I just couldn't get into this story. I started it three times before I finally forced myself to finish it. There was just something irritating and episodic about the first few pages, with The Doctor and Martha meeting a parade of pointless characters. I also didn't really `feel' any David Tennantness coming through. It's a pity, because Derek Landy is a really good writer, but no way is this Skullduggery Pleasant.
Doctor Who: The Beast of Babylon: Ninth Doctor: 50&hellip by Charlie Higson
I like the way that this story plays with our preconceptions and prejudices about the Doctor's companion and also the clever way that it shows how strange time-travel would be (Slipping another adventure in between getting turned down by Rose and going back to offer her another chance) The beast itself was a bit disappointing and dispatched too easily, but the portrayal of Eccleston's Doctor is spot-on.
