unless you know the history this will bore you,
This review is from: Doctor Who: Endgame (Mass Market Paperback)
unless you know the history of the subject at hand, ie the cold war. then this will bore you i found myself checking the chapter contents to see how long ive got to go befor the story evolves.
the story is set in the cold war and i have no understanding of what that period was about so reading the book was head scratching it felt like a spy book with a dr who logo and untill we got to the last couple of chapters it didnt feel like sci-fi what we have here is a spy called the doctor
the only thing that connects anything to the tv show, is the tardis thats it nothing eles altrough he dose ref some of his past lives . it dosent last trough to be perfectly honest
all that said the book is wrritten well we get in to the mind of the doctor and how he feels about the memory loss what he has to do to survive thats the stuff that makes this book if you dont know about the cold war
i gave it 3 stars because of the way terrance dicks handles the memory loss as i said if you dont know about the cold war then this will take away the fun you want from the dr who books
