3.0 out of 5 stars Reflections, 4 Nov 2010
This review is from: Doctor Who - Martha in the Mirror (New Series Adventure 22) (Hardcover)
Another Doctor who novel, telling an all new story not seen on the tv screen.

Featuring the Tenth Doctor and his companion Martha, this runs for two hundred and forty four pages. It's suitable for readers of all ages. And the two lead characters are perfectly written with dialogue that you can imagine them saying were this a tv story.

The book sees the TARDIS arrive at a strange castle in space which is host to the signing of a peace treaty. But some of the delegates have their own agendas. A strange little girl lives in the castle and seems to know more than she's telling. And there's a mirror which guards a secret also.

Can the Doctor find out the truth about the place before peace is shattered?

This one hits the ground running, throwing the TARDIS crew into the middle of the situation. But then the pace gets a bit more sedate as there's a lot of information to be gotten over to the reader. As a result it moves along nicely but you're never quite sure where it's going for a lot of the time.

It's worth hanging on in there with though because there are a great many reveals in the last fifty pages, including one surprise I really didn't see coming, and the various plot strands do come to some satisfying conclusions.

Although the main villain of the piece never quite gets to do enough, so they remain a rather thin character.

A good novel and a very clever plot and worth sticking to the end of. But there are stronger books in this range.
