So is there anything to make this one stand out?
The setting - the wild west of the 1880's, with the doctor and some aliens on track of a mysterious medicine man - is very well created. And this is quite appealing. The alien threat of the story is well realised, quite scary at points, and also quite original. The supporting characters are pretty good, and the plot keeps on moving and has some memorable moments.
It's quite an enjoyable read, and better than average. worth your time
James Swallow's `Sundowners' series has stood him in good stead to write a Doctor Who novel set in 1880s America; his depictions of Terminator-esque gunslingers, native Americans and other staples of the Western genre are all spot-on, and the extra-terrestrial invaders are both original and well-drawn.
The best thing about `Peacemaker' is that it sidesteps cliché and gives a fresh perspective to well-worn themes with his sinister quack healer and orphaned teenage boy, desperate to avenge his father's death.
Another hit in the increasingly impressive BBC original adventures range; Peacemaker should delight readers of all ages.
In the town of Redwater, the Doctor and Martha learn of a snake-oil salesman who's patent medicines actually cure his patient. But when the Doctor and Martha investigate they discover the truth is stranger, and far more dangerous.
Caught between the law of the gun and the deadly plans of intergalactic mercenaries, the Doctor and Martha are about to discover just how wild the West can become...
Featuring the Tenth Doctor and Martha as played by David Tennant and Freema Agyeman in the hit Doctor Who series from BBC Television.
another good Doctor Who although it seems to drag on abit at the end. Beware, there is alot of murder!!!!

As far as Doctor Who novels go, this one is by far my favourite. The Doctor and Martha do the Wild West, and it's a lot of fun. Read morePublished on 9 Jan. 2012 by RobotRollCall
Not the best in the series, but innovative in the location. In summary:
The bad points: everywhere seems to have too many gun-slingers and few decent folks. Read more
