Rather Odd, but Good,
This review is from: Doctor Who-The Sensorites (Doctor Who library) (Paperback)The Sensorites has a firm solid story at it's backbone, while being absurd it's definitely believable! The Doctor, Ian, Barbara & Susan land on a space ship, they find two crew members dead. Shortly after arriving the TARDIS lock is removed, leaving the Doctor with no way into the TARDIS and the two dead crewmen are resurrected into life...
This book shows most of all, an alien culture, unaffected by humans, dubious of any outsiders but unable to doubt each other, trusting all their fellow Sensorites. The Sensorites cannot afford to risk anyone taking their secret to the rest of the galaxy. They hold the TARDIS crew and their new found comrades trapped, allowed to roam free through the ship and the Sensorites home, yet unable to truly gain the liberty that they so dearly desire! The whole foundation of this book is trust, the Sensorites trust themselves, but not so easily the TARDIS crew & their friends. The irony of this, is among the Sensorites there is good at work and that the Doctor & Co. in fact help the Sensorite nations in a big way.
