1.0 out of 5 stars Travel To New Jupiter At Your Peril!, 8 Mar 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Doctor Who: EarthWorld (Paperback)
This has got to be one of the worst novels ever to be published under the name of 'Doctor Who'. It's probably trying to be humourous, zany, wacky, eccentric, etc., etc., and in this reader's opinion, fails at all of 'em. Imagine someone trying to write in the style of Terry Pratchett but missing the point entirely, and you'll get the idea.
This might be Jaq Rayner's idea of a jolly adventure, but I find myself on the other side of the fence, I'm afraid. The Doctor spends the first fifty (!) pages locked in a cell before using his sonic screwdriver to escape, by which time I was finding it hard to drag my eyes across the page. After that, I was 'treated' to another 200 pages of mindless running around before the book came to an end and... that was it.
I feel that giving 'EarthWorld' 1 star is too generous - to be fair, I'd like to give it a rating of 0 stars.
Oh, but on the plus side, I quite enjoyed the sight of a War Machine from the story of the same name and a Yeti from 'The Web of Fear' wandering around the streets of 'London'.
