3.0 out of 5 stars A little `wet' if truth be told, 28 Jan 2009
This review is from: Doctor Who - Wetworld (New Series Adventure 18) (Hardcover)
The BBC Books Tenth Doctor series of novels continues apace, with this effort featuring Martha Jones as the eponymous Timelord's travelling companion. Wetworld, if truth be told, is a fairly run-of-the-mill tale of the besieged planetary colonists ilk; bringing to mind 70s and 80s Doctor Who TV adventures such as `Colony in Space' and `Frontios'.

The time travellers arrive on the planet `Sunday' after another failed attempt by The Doctor to take his companion somewhere she wants to go - in this case Tiffany's of New York. A `dolled-up' Martha subsequently finds herself underwater and held captive by a hideous tentacled beast...The Doctor meanwhile, poses as an Earth Adjudicator and befriends the colonists who are experimenting on native otters in order to discover why they appear to be increasing in intelligence.

Despite Michalowski's best efforts, Wetworld plods along to its inevitable conclusion; with a dearth of engaging characters and little in the way of action, the story lacks that creative spark. Despite this, it remains a solid addition to the range and is still far superior to many of its peers in the teenage fiction market.
