Half way there,
This review is from: Doctor Who: Halflife (Paperback)
Mark Michalowski has produced another enjoyable and accessible novel; although I couldn't help thinking that it had the potential to be a lot better. The main problem lies not with the author but in that the book seems poorly edited with the balance of the story definitely leaning towards the second half of the book.
The plot is pretty straightforward and the stock characters a little one dimensional; The continuation of The Doctor being an amnesiac is getting a bit tired now, it just retreads with every new book and could do with being resolved one way or another.
Despite these minor gripes, this is still a decent story told simply and well. It's not the greatest book we've seen in this line, but it's head and shoulders above the majority of the previous story arc. It wasn't `unputdownable' but kept me reading to the end.
