From the team that brought you the Third Doctor story "Devil Goblins of Neptune" switch gears and bring you a Seventh Doctor novel that is so well written, that it's a shame that it's not a television episode. A somewhat sequel to "The Daemon" the Doctor and Ace land in a town of Evil where blood runs thick. So much to the fact that it's not uncommon for cousins to sleep with cousins in this town. There is an evil that is taking away the town folk in the form of hideous scarecrows and the Doctor believes that whatever the forces that haunt this town are, it's not as simple as a case of ghosts and gobins but perhaps something alien in origin. Probably the best Seventh Doctor novel in the series thus far. A tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat reading.

A stunning novel from these two excellent writers (and nothing like their previous 3rd Doctor Novel which was amusing and well characterised but lacking in plot; The Hollow Men, on the other hand, is a John Wyundham-style story of a village with a terrible secret. A classic evocation of the traditional Doctor who story of spooky going-on in an English country setting. The depiction of McCoy and Aldred are terrifically accurate and the villagers are so well drawn one can almost picture this novel as a TV adventure. Simply beautiful.

This was the first Doctor Who novel I read and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised! The creepy story was well written and got under my skin; it became a real page turner. Some of the themes and events in the book were a lot more adult than I was expecting but it always felt like Doctor Who, I could easily believe this took place in the classic series' darker, final season.
The authors perfectly captured the characters of the Seventh Doctor and his companion Ace and all of the other characters felt fully fleshed out and believable.
Also with this novel being from two of the three authors of the famous Discontinuity Guide expect lots of nods to other stories, as well as a few moments that the new series seems to have "borrowed" from this adventure.
A very promising start to my exploration of Doctor Who novels.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and i'm sure once you have picked it up you will find it hard to put down. The Doctor and Ace travel to the small picturesque village of Hexen Bridge, a place that has been cursed for centuries. After making some investigations they discover that Jack the Green is behind it all, an alien force that is using human being's psychic energy to conquer Earth and other worlds. The Hollow Men are simply his foot soldiers. The story is well written and scary, and the characters in it are delightfully deep and well decribed. The other strong point to this book is that there is constant suspense and the story is not predictable at all. One to purchase for Who fans and Horror fans aswell.

This book was written by an author who obviously knows what he's talking about. Sylvester McCoy's 7th doctor (aka the professor) and Sophie Aldred's character of Ace are beautifully realised in this mesmarising novel. It is recognsible Doctor Who at its greatest; you can almost hear the theme tune!
It is frightening, dramatic, poignant and touching, beautifully crafted. A wonderful and intelligent tale.

This is a really good novel with a very creepy setting that simply oozes a chilling atmosphere. The characterisations of The Doctor and Ace are very good. This novel is not quite as good as "Illegal Alien", but then that would be a very difficult novel to match. But it is still highly entertaining and every Who fan should read it.
