Review

"enjoyable romp...Morris' prose is as light on its feet as David Tennant himself, the Tenth Doctor's infectious energy driving the story forward with whip-smart dialogue and kinetic plotting. Great fun" (SFX Magazine)

Format: Paperback
Martha and the Doctor visit a small New England town during the Halloween festivities. All is not well in the town of Blackwood Falls, however. There have been strange occurrences during the preparations and an eerie green mist has descended over everything. It soon becomes apparent that the Doctor is not the only alien in Blackwood Falls.

This book is basically the sort of thing you would expect if Doctor Who were to do a Halloween special. It could easily have deteriorated into something fairly tacky but, fortunately, the author has done a pretty good job with the usual Halloween material. All the general clichés you might expect from a Halloween romp are present. The aliens bear more than a passing resemblance to jack-o-lanterns, there’s the stereotypical evil clown, a dense mist, bodily possession and various attacks by bats, cats and skeletons. On top of this there is group of teenagers exploring the mysterious happenings; fortunately without being irritating.

Everything has a science fiction vent though even though the novel plays plenty of homage to the horror genre. The Necris, for example, is clearly inspired from the Necronomicon concept of Lovecraft. Although there is a science fiction reason for its existence and power.

However, even though the Doctor keeps referring to the Hervoken’s magic as science that we don’t comprehend it is a bit of a stretch. They do seem to be exhibiting powers with all the hallmarks associated with ‘black magic’ rather than utilising technology.

The assumption is that their technology is something similar to the semi-mystical ‘science’ of the Carrionites (although there is a certain level of similarity with the organic like technology of the Zygons).

It is almost Halloween in the sleepy New England town of Blackwood Falls. Autumn leaves litter lawns and sidewalks, paper skeletons hang in windows, and carved pumpkins leer from stoops and front porches.

The Doctor and Martha soon discover that something long-dormant has awoken in the town, and this will be no ordinary Halloween. What is the secret of the ancient chestnut tree and the mysterious book discovered tangled in its roots? What rises from the local churchyard in the dead of night, sealing up the lips of the only witness? And why are the harmless trappings of Halloween suddenly taking on a creepy new life of their own?

As nightmarish creatures prowl the streets, the Doctor and Martha must battle to prevent both the townspeople and themselves from suffering a grisly fate...

Featuring the Tenth Doctor and Martha as played by David Tennant and Freema Agyeman in the hit sci-fi series from BBC Television.

By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 5 Nov. 2009
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A novel featuring the tenth doctor who and his companion martha jones. As ever with this range it's an all new story that runs for 244 pages, and it's designed to be read by readers of all ages. And the two main characters are perfectly captured by the writing, with dialogue that you can imagine them saying on screen.

The story of this one involves the doctor and martha visiting a small town in america at halloween time. Just as the discovery of a strange old book sparks a series of bizarre and scary happenings. There's something strange happening in the town. Aided by some local teenagers and an eccentric old woman the tardis crew have to find out what, or the whole planet Earth will be in danger...

This one does get going right from the off, thanks to a long prologue in which neither the doctor or martha appear, and then it keeps things moving along nicely afterwards with some very good set pieces. But the ultimate explanation for what's going on here isn't anything desperately new or excitingly original. So as a doctor who story it's nothing exceptional, but as a scary story for halloween it's not bad. Although some of the set pieces and one rather gruesome moment may not be entirely suitable for some younger readers.

A decent entry in this range of books, but not quite a standout

Brilliiant little story this one..It sees The Doctor and Martha land in the small american town of Blackward Falls on Halloween.I loved the charactrisation..Etta Helligan and Earl Clayton were excellent..The Hervoken were such a good enemy..and the references to The Caronites from The Shakespeare Code were a added bonus to this story..The story really gets you gripped..and as with others the dialouge is beilevable and you can,as you read hear David Tennant and Freema Agarman saying it.The ending was not predictable and you are willing The Doctor and Martha to win..The story is an all round perfect one and a must for all Doctor Who fans..10/10..Enjoy.

It's the day before Halloween in the small New England town of Blackwood Falls. Every home is decorated with jack-o-lanterns, ghosts and goblins; the children are choosing their costumes from Tozier's Costume Emporium, and the adults are making the final preparations for the town's annual Halloween Carnival. But Halloween in Blackwood Falls will be anything but ordinary this year...

Rick Pirelli and his best friends Thad and Scott love Halloween. Before they head off to pick up their costumes, they notice an eerie green glow coming from the base of a tree in Rick's backyard. The tree, with bark as black as pitch, gave the town of Blackwood Falls its name. The boys unearth an ancient book filled with strange symbols, and unwittingly set into motion a chain of events that will endanger the entire town.

The Doctor and Martha arrive just as an ominous green mist descends upon Blackwood Falls. The mist seems to be coming from the exact spot where the boys found the strange book. The unnatural fog soon has people in the town feeling uneasy, and the Doctor notes that it seems to be feeding off people's deepest fears. When monstrous creatures called Hervoken begin attacking residents of Blackwood Falls, the Doctor and Martha are the town's only hope. Can they stop the growing threat before it's too late?

This is one of my favorite Doctor Who novels. Mark Morris did an excellent job in capturing the spirit of the television show while still making the story his own. The Doctor and Martha are portrayed very well, and there are a lot of fun references to past adventures. Forever Autumn is a great Halloween read for any Doctor Who fan.
