The Clockwise man is a good read and well worth it. Although a bit confusing the clockwise man is intriguing, but on the whole a bit dull compared with Justin Richards Death Collector and I felt that the end was annoyingly rushed. A good read and a decent tie-in compared to a disappointing new series of Doctor Who. Worth getting, but certainly if you don't enjoy Doctor Who then this won't be for you at all. Recommended, but there are better books out there

Enjoyable story, more of a young adult's book than I would have preferred but still has the edgier feel of the ninth Doctor series. Allusions to 'Bad Wolf' again, very curious indeed.

Ah Doctor Who classic Sci Fi its rebirth in 2005 was amazing! While some old hardcore fans didnt enjoy it. And I do understand why but I really really enjoyed the new update. So then lets review the first of the spin off novels!

It is with one of personal fav Doctors the Ninth and Rose we are taken to the 1920s. In the middle of a murder plot! But are the killers human?

I liked this novel would have made a good episode or episode arc. Plus its always nice to see more Ninth Doctor!

Justin Richards is never quite as interesting a writer when he's writing to spec as when he's doing his own thing. And he's doing the former here.

This book was clearly written before he'd seen any of the new tv episodes, as whilst rose is reasonably well portrayed the doctor comes across more like the fourth. Generic characters appear in a reasonably interesting plot, but the prose isn't that great and this is generally a slow and uninvolving read. At least the range has gotten better since

This book is soooooooooooooooooo great! I am soooooooooooooo glad that Doctor Who is back on our screens - when Doctor Who is on you don't bother to go out on Saturday nights! The book is phenominal, for all ages , and easy to read! I would like more Doctor Who books to come out because they contain 2 things I like best! Doctor Who and Reading!

This is an enjoyable read from one of the best BBC Books Who range authors.
The novel captures the interplay of the Ninth Doctor and Rose (one of the best features of the new series) perfectly and thankfully without the overtly 'soapy' elements that keep creeping in to the TV episodes.
The plot is quite good too!

The other Ninth Doctor novels are very good reads. I enjoyed them a lot. This was the last one I read- and I was disappointed.
The plot is hazy, you don't really find out what's happened until the end, and even then you have to go back and re-read it all a few times before you can grasp it. The characters seemed to keep going over what they had discovered, which was slightly annoying. Especially when their opinions on it were obviously wrong- even with their knowledge of the events.
Altogether, I thought this was a waste of time to read. I'm just glad it was a friend's copy and I didn't waste money on buying it myself.
