A strong new twist on the time travel idea,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: Nuclear Time (Hardcover)
"Nuclear Time" manages to bring a new idea into the time travel element of the Who universe, as the Doctor finds himself running backwards through time in ways he can't control. It's a very interesting new twist that leads to a very complicated but understandable story, that doesn't patronise the reader with over-explanation and which might have you skipping back through the pages to double-check things, which in my opinion isn't a bad thing, though younger readers might get a little confused.
The rest of the story- the US Government trying to destroy their own prototypes of androids disguised as humans as they are too successful and too deadly- is more straightforward and runs a little bit like a Third Doctor story, with plastic men coming to life and a struggle between a brilliant scientist Albert and closed-minded military man Geoff.
Amy and Rory don't make much of an appearance, which again works well as they're not needed, as we concentrate on the Doctor coming to terms with being hurled around time without his TARDIS.
