2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good, Except When It Isn't, 16 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: Only Human: 50th Anniversary Edition (Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special Edition Books) (Kindle Edition)
A novel that's both pretty good, and intensely irritating. On the plus side, Roberts nails the 9th Doctor and Rose, and that's half the job when writing these tie-in novels. Watching those two characters bounce around is a great deal of fun. The primary plot is also interesting and well conceived, with splashes of family friendly body horror perking up a tale of mad science and human improvement. However, the novel collapses into the most irksome drivel when the sub-plots surrounding primitive homo sapiens and neanderthals rear their heads. The decision to write these characters as modern families in furs is neither particularly funny nor terribly illuminating, and they drag down a promising bit of tomfoolery.
