5.0 out of 5 stars More tea vicar?
A jolly good read, don't you know. If Lady Chatterly's Lover can be summed up as a useful book about gamekeeping, then the God Emperor of Didcot is an absolutely essential read for any budding religious despot who wants to control the world's tea supplies. To those of that mind I wholeheartedly recommend this book, because it will show you rotters that so long as tea...

3.0 out of 5 stars More space fun
More stiff upper lip adventures as Isambard Smith and his demented crew protect and serve the British Space Empire. As everyone knows, the British exist on the moral fibre provided by tea, so when the tea producing planet of Urn in the Didcot system is over-run, then the whole Empire is at risk!

Can Smith, his crew and assorted friends take the planet back...

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 5 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: God Emperor of Didcot (Space Captain Smith) (Paperback)
Toby Frost's books promise high farce laced with classic science fiction but fail to deliver on either count. Though the characters are relatively well fleshed out, the Isambard Smith books feel directionless and meandering and the author cannot hold a candle to his contemporaries like Fforde and Pratchett.
