2.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Who meets Buffy???, 25 Nov 2009

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Goth Opera (Doctor Who Missing Adventures) (Paperback)
This book is interesting due to it being the first of the missing adventures series and because of it's link to Terrance Dicks enjoyable 'Blood Harvest'. Other than that it is fairly mediocre. It certainly isn't Paul Cornell's best work (the excellent Human Nature for example). There's plenty of running around and action but it all feels a little pointless and lacks the atmosphere of Blood Harvest or State of Decay. It feels less like a Doctor Who and more like a modern look at vampirism. In fact, as a teenage vampire novel it would work much better. The inclusion of yet another renegade Timelord in Ruath seems unnecessary and Yarven is simply not a deep or original enough villain to be featured again in this.

Not a great book but still worth reading due to it's importance within the Doctor Who novels - the start of seeing more adventures from the old Doctors we loved who hadn't been on television for decades.
