5.0 out of 5 stars What Doctor Who should be like
This is one of my favourite ever Who books. It's ingenious, witty, strange and has a new idea every few pages. After a fashion, it's even about something. If you like Gareth Roberts there's a very good chance you'll like this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware - Unauthorised Publication - Possible Breach of Copyright
It's another unauthorised ebook - this time purporting to be from Target Publishers, but the title is a BBC Publication. The copyright page shows DuBois as the publisher.

The formatting is horrendous and shows a distinct lack of professionalism.

About the only thing going for it is that it's not as much of a rip off as other DuBois unauthorised books.

3.0 out of 5 stars When Tomorrow comes, 2 May 2009
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Tomorrow Windows (Doctor Who (BBC Paperback)) (Paperback)
Jonathan Morris wrote this Eighth Doctor novel as a homage to Douglas Adams but as previous reviewers have said it is not really worthy of the great writer. An engaging enough read, it at least avoids the almost constant 'story arcs' that have blighted much of this series.

The novel's glaring gothic cover suggests an intense and humourless read but this is far from being accurate. Jonathan Morris has indeed created a pastiche of Douglas Adams's but at least his homage is well written. Morris leaves no stone unturned in his quest to lampoon Doctor Who itself, but his is an affectionate tribute rather than an attack.

The Doctor is much more likeable here and his young Londoner companion Fitz also continues his recent welcome character development. Trix, the other current member of the TARDIS crew is also much more interesting than in previous outings; she has now started to become a complex and interesting person in her own right.

The Tomorrow Windows is ultimately a lighthearted and shallow story but one that compensates by making the reader laugh at themselves and by being a well written and decidedly fun novel.

3.0 out of 5 stars Uneven but enjoyable adventure, 11 Sept. 2004
By

(VINE VOICE)   
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Tomorrow Windows (Doctor Who (BBC Paperback)) (Paperback)
The Tomorrow Windows is - at last - the first truly standalone Eight Doctor novel in a few years, and concerns a group of protected 'heritage' planets, and an alien estate agents plan to manipulate the indigenous populations into self-destruction so he can sell on the planets. This is very obviously a comedy in the Douglas Adams fashion (there's even some Slartifartbast-style planet designing), and though it's nowhere near as amusing as Adams work the frantic pace of the novel and the huge range of locations and bizarre aliens means this book is never boring. A bit hit and miss, and the plot is so far-fetched it would never survive in a non-comedy book, but all in all this is an entertaining and enjoyable read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good book, but don't buy this edition., 26 April 2015
By 
G. M. Johnson "gerardmarkjohnson" (London, England) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
It's a good book, funny and well-written, from a writer who is a dyed-in-the-wool fan of the Tom Baker/ Romana 2 era of Doctor Who. But if you want to read it, get a legitimate copy - the original BBC paperback for example (which is what I have) not this unauthorised edition which steals the author's original work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay, not great, 2 Aug. 2004
By 
A. M. Beaumont (Leeds, West Yorks United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Tomorrow Windows (Doctor Who (BBC Paperback)) (Paperback)
In the postscript is a dedication to Douglas Adams as the book was writen in imitation of Adams style. Sadley as Morris himself states, it is a pale imitation. The book is okay but not great.
