2.0 out of 5 stars To boldly go..., 14 Nov 2005
This review is from: First Frontier (New Doctor Who Adventures) (Mass Market Paperback)
For the first time in the New Adventures series a writer brings the good Doctor back to a true historical story in the mould of the classic series' 'The Crusades', 'Marco Polo' and 'The Romans'.
The trouble is that a strange 'dryness' pervades this story and prevents it from ever really leaping off the page and gripping the reader's attention.
In a way this is a kind of proto-X Files; mysterious shenanigans in a Nevada desert, alien abduction, secretive NASA officials and an enigmatic little man who seems to know altogether too much. A slight disappointment after the excellent strides made by the two previous installments, this does have some good moments - most noticeably the archetypal North American redneck who is whisked away in a 'flying saucer' and returns dazed but enlightened (whilst remaining mocked and derided by his peers and scorned by his family) - solid but uninspired.
