This review is from: Doctor Who: Dominion (Mass Market Paperback)
Wow! This is bar far the best Doctor Who book of the entire Eigth Doctor range, even beating Lawrence Miles Alien Bodies!
For someone who has never penned a Doctor Who novel before, Nick Walters begins startlingly well. The book is extremely easy to read without being simple, and I was drawn into the story within the first few pages.
I don't want to say too much about the content of this novel as I wouldn't want to give too much away - enough to say that you feel Walters understands the Eighth Doctor better than most other writers for the range. He writes him as a far more vunerable Doctor without compromising the character that we know and love from the TV series. This book could not have been written for any other Doctor other than the eighth, and serves as an example as to how future books of this range should be written. Even the blatent rip-off of Alien in one scene cannot persuade me to dock a star - this book had me feeling a way that no other book in this series has achieved - I laughed out loud on the train when reading the Doctor making piggie noises and welled up on reading the final page.
Someone commission this Nick Walters guy to write another novel - and soon!
