It's nice to see a woman's touch for a change,
This review is from: Doctor Who: EarthWorld (Mass Market Paperback)
This is the Doctor's first trip into a futuristic galaxy for some time.
The story is set on New Jupiter and 'Earthworld' is their glorified ( and gigantic!) theme park.
Having materialised in the prehistoric zone, the TARDIS crew are soon separated and are faced with homicidal triplet princesses, teen terrorists, crazy androids, a pathetic president and an Elvis impersonator.
Jacqueline's novel focuses on the character of Anji and her introduction to the TARDIS team. We follow her antics through the pages, looking through her eyes and relating all too well to another recent addition to the Doctor Who companion list.
Anji tries desperately to avoid thinking of her recently murdered boyfriend and Fitz comes to term with his carbon-copy self. The Doctor meanwhile still hasn't got his memory back, but he's worked out how to get his sonic screwdriver working again.
The plot is relatively simple, it's easy to read and a refreshing change from the heavy dramatics we have been used to; of which I do not complain! Doctor Who is such an expansive concept - that's its beauty.
Well done Jacqueline! A very successful first attempt!
