5.0 out of 5 stars The shadow falls
This book is the most inspired and I would say crucial in the New Adventures series starring Ace, Bernice and of course The Doctor. I found it riveting, spellbinding and captivating. A riot of colour with the dark humour the author exposes us to including references to Kate Bush and famous philosophers. It is a dark and tense novel which takes The Reader to a different...

This review is from: Falls the Shadow (New Doctor Who Adventures) (Paperback)
This book is the most inspired and I would say crucial in the New Adventures series starring Ace, Bernice and of course The Doctor. I found it riveting, spellbinding and captivating. A riot of colour with the dark humour the author exposes us to including references to Kate Bush and famous philosophers. It is a dark and tense novel which takes The Reader to a different level in understanding The Who Universe. On a personal note. This novel has inspired me lyrically. So much wealth within these pages. its magical. And thought out. Daniel is one of the best writers i've come across along with Kate Orman . Falls the shadow is Inspired.

3.0 out of 5 stars Strangely complex, 14 Nov 2005
This review is from: Falls the Shadow (New Doctor Who Adventures) (Paperback)
'We are deranged. We are psychopaths, sociopaths, up the garden path...' So says the sinister Tanith; one half of the deadliest duo ever known to man - or Timelord. The Doctor and his companions are trapped in a strange house with the gruesome twosome, an introspective assassin, a stranger dressed in grey and a scientist who plans to destroy and remake the world.
Daniel O'Mahony has crafted a complex and disturbing novel; nothing is quite what it seems and it is up to the intrepid TARDIS crew to prevent the madness escaping and infecting the future.
The narrative is downbeat (at one point Berniece even dies and is transported to some kind of parallel universe) whilst The Doctor is imprisoned in an endless void and Ace is systematically beaten and mocked - her usual dogmatic determination to answer all problems with aggression is curtailed - meaning we actually see some kind of progression in terms of the regular characters.
The one flaw is the novel's length; if it were half as long it would have worked so much better but as it is O'Mahony has delivered a credible addition to the New Adventures range.
