Customer Review

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting, thought provoking read., 31 Mar. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Doctor Who: Vanishing Point (Mass Market Paperback)
Stephen Cole's 'Vanishing Point' sees the Doctor, Fitz and Anji arrive on a planet where death brings the meaning of the individuals life to them, and all life will meet death in the Vanishing Point. But things are going wrong - unnatural deaths are disturbing the balance and the Doctor may be the people's last hope.
There are some truly fascinating ideas in this book and Cole weaves these into an intriguing storyline which unfolds in a rather odd and unusal way. The Doctor's characterisation is fine although his losses in memory don't really show themselves, but that could be seen as a good thing (in that we're not going to be constantly reminded about the Doctor's lost memories) or something bad in that they should have been mentioned slightly more. Fitz has recovered totally from his identity crisis in EarthWorld and his characterisation is excellent. Anji isn't quite as lively as she was in the previous book but her presence is welcome and her adjustment to life in the TARDIS is continuing nicely, just as adjusting well to her presence in the books. Nathaniel Dark is the standout character from the rest with some good characterisation going into the Destinist.
Overall, Vanishing Point is a slightly odd novel, but it's another good entry into the Eighth Doctor Adventures and if this is reflective of the new direction that the books are taking, then the future is looking good for the range overall.
