Good, but insubstantial,
This review is from: Doctor Who: Casualties of War (Mass Market Paperback)
This second book of the current arc is something of an oddity. It's an entertaining enough read but it takes a long while to get started and then it fizzles out towards the end.
I like the idea of the Doctor loosing his memory, but retaining his fundamental characteristics and visiting various periods in Earth's time until his meeting in 2001 with Fitz. But this World War One set novel is not as good as "The Burning" and seems insubstantial.
It does not delve into what the Doctor has been doing for the twenty years or so between this and the Burning which I found a little strange as it was almost asking the reader to believe that the Doctor has been wandering around Britain for the whole of that time and this is the first strange thing that has happened to him.
It is well written though, and is an entertaining entry into the series.
