The 10th Doctor and Martha find themselves up against an alien weed creature that is hidden beneath an ancient well in this BBC Books novel. 'Wishing Well' has some nice characterisation, a dash of humour, and some pleasantly creepy moments - the only downside is the complete lack of any original ideas, with the novel coming over as a rather generic 'alien monster of the week'.
Well written (pun not intended) but uninspired, 'Wishing Well' will certainly entertain anyone looking for a dose of the Doctor for a two or three hours, but this is a novel that will be forgotten within an hour of turning the last page.
