Martha in the Mirror,
This review is from: Doctor Who - Martha in the Mirror (New Series Adventure 22) (Hardcover)
I always enjoy Justin Richard's writing, he seems to have a real grasp of the framework and narrative of Doctor Who stories. Even stories with `modern' Doctors, such as this one featuring the Tenth Doctor (as played by David Tennant) have a good `classic' feel to them. In this story, the Doctor and Martha have travelled to Castle Extremis, where the Doctor promises Martha a great theme park. But he's got his timing a bit wrong, and they find themselves at peace talks at the end of the war between Anthium and Zerugma. The Doctor and Martha find that not everybody is as keen for the war to end as they might have imagined. And what does the ancient mirror have to do with anything?
This is a great story; there's a good mix of alien cultures with mystery and intrigue. It has a feel of the classic Third Doctor Peladon stories I thought. Well characterised, well narrated, and well put together. This is a really good Doctor Who story, and definitely recommended.

Thanks timelord007. I like to give just enough information to get the potential reader/listener interested and then BAM they have to read it/listen to it to find out what happens next :-)
I like your reviews, I like the way you break out the positive and negative and put trivia and stuff in your reviews it's all good stuff!
I think Martha as a character is a really good companion; she has a lot of empathy for other people, and works well with the Tenth Doctor.

I'm a bit behind with my listening; don't seem to have had much chance lately, I need to be more disciplined in my listening habits :-)
Wish I had a photographic memory would make studying for exams easier!
I'm not really a horror movie fan; they're either too gory or too silly mostly for my delicate sensibilities :-)
I don't know why some people seem to have a downer on Martha, I thought she was a great companion for Ten.
