2.0 out of 5 stars Another misfire from Boucher, 9 Feb. 2005
This review is from: Doctor Who: Psi-ence Fiction (Mass Market Paperback)
Psi-ence Fiction has the fairly standard Doctor Who story structure, where what is essentially a horror story ends up being explained away by a scientific rationale, although here the connection between time travel experiments and psychic horror seem rather confused - so much so that Boucher doesn't even attempt to have the Doctor act as Leela's tutor, leaving her to wander around unsure of what is actually happening. In it's initial horror mode there are a few effective scenes, as a group of students engaged in psychic experiments find themselves under attack, but these are somewhat hamstrung by the students being so annoying you hope they all die anyway. Add in a pair of police detectives who seem to have wandered in from another novel, and a typically corny villain and you have another misfire of a novel from a once-great television scriptwriter.
