4.0 out of 5 stars Feels Like an Episode, 26 Jun 2005
This review is from: Doctor Who - Winner Takes All (New Series Adventure 3) (Hardcover)
Winner Takes All is a fast, enjoyable read, that feels like an episode from the wonderful new series. Jacqueline Rayner has done a great job of capturing Rose and the Doctor, as well as Mickey and Jackie, which is amazing when you consider she must have written it months before a single episode aired.
The story is straight forward enough; a video game, Death to Mantodeans has become the rage of Rose's old neighborhood. Alas, this game isn't just harmless fun, but a horrfying life and death struggle with insectoid aliens, who have a taste for human flesh, and some very nasty, king-size porcupines. Not to worry though, the Doctor will soon sort it out.
I've read two of the novels based on the new series, The Clockwise Man and Winner Takes All, and even though I think The Clockwise Man is the better, more satisfying story, this one is still a lot of fun. These books are just the thing to hold me over until the Christmas Special. More please, and bring on the Captain Jack stories!
