The Doctor Who Guide To Banking
on 29 February 2012
Whilst I found the characterisations of this particular Doctor Who story to be, for the most part, quite good (although I found Touched By An Angel to be even more so) I kept being distracted by the long-winded, sometimes patronising explainations of how banks work, how loans work, etc. Now, I'm not the smartest or "with it" person in the world, especially when it comes to finances. However, parts of this book read like nothing so much as a childrens educational novel wrapped up in popular culture, one with plenty of exposition - "Doctor Who explains compound interest. With cake".
It's a great idea for a story, and on the whole I like how it comes together, although it's a bit predictable in places (the big reveal on who the big villain of the story is honestly came to no surprise whatsoever) and, as I say, it can tend to drag on with explaining how money works. I'd recommend it, but mostly to Doctor Who fans who work in a bank. They seem to be the people who would enjoy this story the most.
