2.0 out of 5 stars Nice idea but badly executed, 19 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: The King's Dragon (Hardcover)
I've really enjoyed most of the Eleventh Doctor books so far, but I'm afraid this one is just not up to scratch. The poor characterisation of Rory and Amy is starting to grate to the point when, halfway through the book, I'm about to abandon it as a lost cause and stop reading. If you only read for the Doctor you'll probably enjoy it, but fans of the companions will likely be disappointed.

Absolutely agree with this review. I've really enjoyed pretty much all of the books produced with the Eleventh Doctor involved, but this one is really quite awful. The idea is ok-ish, but, as this review states, Amy and Rory are so out of character it makes you wonder if the author has actually ever seen the new series. Amy comes out with some really 'posh' and 'correct' sounding sentences, and don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that our on-screen Amy isn't capable of such, but she's Scottish and modern and doesn't speak the Queen's English. I was really disappointed in this one and have given up on it before the end.
