3.0 out of 5 stars A Handful of Ideas, 12 April 2014
By 
P. Kennard (Worcestershire, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Doctor Who: A Handful of Stardust (Time Trips) (Kindle Edition)
When Doctor Dee manages to summon a mysterious blue box using forbidden dark arts, he is stunned to find it occupied by a Harlequin Jester who calls himself the Doctor.  But this is only the start of his life-changing adventure.

Jake Arnott has come up with not one, but a whole range of great ideas. Unfortunately, he has tried to squeeze them into a ridiculously short story. There is enough good material here for a whole novel, but instead we get forty-odd pages of rushed plot, with almost nothing properly developed or explored.
The characters of Doctor Dee and his assistant are really good and we get just enough of them to wish we had more, while the 'villains' suffer the most from the brevity on display here; we barely meet them before matters cannon towards the ending.

These Time Trips seem to be getting shorter the more that appear, which in this case is a real shame. I can only hope Arnott will one day give us a greatly expanded version of what should have been a special story.

Full disclosure: Akin to Amazon Vine, the publisher provided a free eARC (Advance Review Copy) in exhange for this independent and unbiased review.

This review is from: Doctor Who: A Handful of Stardust (Time Trips) (Kindle Edition)
A light but entertaining adventure of the sixth Doctor and Peri, the characters are recognisable though perhaps they would have benefited from a l more characterisation.
