This review is from: Doctor Who - The Nightmare of Black Island (New Series Adventure 10) (Hardcover)
Mike Tucker's latest original Tenth Doctor novel is faintly derivative of Doctor Who Gothic classics such as 'The Horror of Fang Rock', however this is no bad thing for me as the 1977 Edwardian lighthouse mystery is one of my favourite TV serials. Tucker creates a creepy and eerie atmosphere whilst imbuing his characters with wit and charm; David Tennant's Tenth Doctor is admirably re-created here, along with teenage sidekick Rose Tyler, and the pair do what they do best - get caught up in seemingly innocent events that take a turn for the sinister almost immediately.
Evocative and intriguing mystery; this BBC Books Doctor Who novel is one of the best in the series so far.
