4.0 out of 5 stars New and Old combine perfectly, 14 Jun. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Doctor Who : " Revolution Man " (Mass Market Paperback)
Revolution Man is Paul Leonard's third and by far his best Eighth Doctor Who novel so far. Set on Earth in the late sixties, Leonard returns Dr Who to what got me hooked on the series in the first place - lots of time-travel, a mysterious, ponderous, sometimes manic, always magic Doctor!
Written in three parts, this is a story that gripped me right from the first chapter. The supporting characters are different, well spoken and come across as people rather than characters.
The Om-Tsar drug is a novel idea - although I felt too much about its origins were left unexplained. Perhaps this could be adressed in a sequal...!
I particularly like Fitz's strong storyline - his involvement with Maddie and subsequent maturing was written into the story very well - I just hope its not used as an excuse by future authors to dull-down his inherant cyncacism - his most attractive quality!
The story has plot holes - some holes are even larger than the ones my local council leaves in my high street - but the writing and characterisation is so good, that it hardly matters, and certainly does not detract from enjoying the book.
The Doctor/TARDIS plot develops in this story with a distincyly more morose Doctor reminicent of Tom Baker or Sylvester McCoy's final few TV stories. This book brings all the good parts of new and old Who together in one of the best Dr Who books in this range for some time.
