3.0 out of 5 stars just a reveiw, 17 Jan 2011
This review is from: Doctor Who: Night of the Humans (Hardcover)
not going in to the story as most have done this so ill anylize the plot,charecters ect

plot

its a diffrent prespective in that its humans invaiding aleins and i like that but it also featured a tired sub plot in that the humans have a re written past ( wont say more than that ) if they stuck to the invasion plot it would have been a very diffrent very epic book unfortunetly the sub plot kinda ruind it

setting

this was another on/off thing for me the junkyard was very well done ( then blown when the reason behind it was told ) and i found the aleins side to be generic but it adds to the story and its conclusion

villains

the humans and slipstream

the humans are intresting in that they live trough a vid screen i found it intresting and the humans are actully very nasty and you want them to die but you feel sorry for them too so it works on all leavels just wish the reason for the way they were wasent a cop-out

slipstream

please please put this guy in the 2011 xmas story or at least the season 6 2nd half this guy is excellent he,s cocky aragant ( not sure if this means the same as cocky) hes charming and very pesusive ( to amy that is ) oh hes a con man too seriously he is fantastic

the good guys

the doctor

hes very well wrritten i think the best you can imagine him is when he telling the humans about the reason why they are what they are this was very nicely wrriten ( when he tell them about the mentor) i love the 11th doctor hes more alein than 10th ( no disrespect to 10th ) and a lot darker the ending shows this

amy

not too sure about the scottish lass iam not too convinced that the wrriter captured her in her sassy bubblely persona as well as apolo 13 or nuclear time did but to be fair this was wrriten when the new era began so ill let it slide

the aleins

ok i cant recall what they are called but they are very anoying and dont want to hear from them again i dont think they are the best monsters ( or aleins or whatever) to be created and found them very boring

plus side

excellent well written and well ploted story with a well written doctor ( always helps) and nice twist on a age old primise

minus

everything elese very boring aleins cop out ending

overall grade B-
