4.0 out of 5 stars Things can only get better
The first book in this series, "A big hand for the Doctor" didn't quite cut the mustard, but this one is an improvement. In this, a good deed by Jamie sends he an the Doctor to the far reaches of the galaxy, where a sinister plot is at hand to use the TARDIS to control time. A believable and human story which allows Jamie his moment of glory.

3.0 out of 5 stars Another interesting attempt for the anniversary
Colfer's first Doctor story was a fast and simple affair. There is something grander at work here. A wider scope and a brave attempt to segway Lovecraft-esque creatures into the world of Troughton's Doctor. It's not a stunningly great story but it's entertaining and makes you long for more adventures of the first slightly daft timelord to wear a dickie bow. It'll be...

It'll be interesting to see what they've got in store for Pertwee come the end of the month.

4.0 out of 5 stars My first dr who book, 15 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Nameless City: Second Doctor (Doctor Who 50th Anniversary E-Shorts Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
I could hear the Dr and Jamie in the text. They are bold characters in a pacey story that moves well. Written well, my only reservation is it was way too short. I have never read a book in a day before

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better., 9 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Nameless City: Second Doctor (Doctor Who 50th Anniversary E-Shorts Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
This begins with an interesting set up, and makes good use of Jamie, but, like many many recent TV episodes, rushes to a conclusion whilst leaving big ideas (in this case, a Dr Who take on the Cthulu mythos) underdeveloped.

This review is from: Doctor Who: The Nameless City: Second Doctor (Doctor Who 50th Anniversary E-Shorts Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
The story isn't too bad but unfortunately as it's so short it feels unfinished. This story could easily have been expanded to novel length which would have allowed the author more time to develop and explore.
