but that doesn't mean those who do can't enjoy them as well.
the range is now in it's fourth year and a doctor who book has been included in the range every year.
this one involves the doctor arriving at a sports training facility to find there have been several mysterious deaths there. he befriends some of the students at the place and they find that it has been taken over by sontarans, aliens familiar to anyone who saw the 2008 season of the show on tv. the sontarans put the doctor and the students through some dangerous tests. can they survive? and what is the sontarans true purpose in being there?
This is definitely a book you can get into quickly and the prose is clear enough such that you won't find it a difficult read. story wise it's not bad. the supporting characters do have a reasonable amount of depth to them, and the plot does develop nicely. There are a few decent revelations to come along the way.
Nothing special, but if you want a good quick read, or a good quick doctor who story, or both, then it's well worth getting.
Stilted writing with only one good twist and it really doesn't slot into the genre. A lot of out of character moments and plots.
The Doctor is the Doctor, the Sontarans are the Sontarans and the supporting cast are just that - there for support and someone for the Doctor to talk to and show off his cleverness and knowledge.
There is no real depth to the story - in fact the swimming pool mentioned in the text probably has more depth - but the short chapters mean you can read a chapter, go away for half an hour, come back and read another chapter and keep the same pace throughout the day, reading the final chapter just before turning out the light at bedtime. Alternatively, the book can be read to children at bedtime and so send them off into the dreamland worlds of Doctor Who - just make sure they know there is a sofa near by for them to hide behind, if need be!
All in all, a book well worth the money, and a fun read to boot!
Now, where did I put that sonic screwdriver...
The TARDIS lands at an academy for top athletes, all hoping to be chosen for the forthcoming Globe Games. But is one of them driven enough to resort to murder? The Doctor discovers that the students have been hushing up unexplained deaths.
Teaming up with a young swimmer called Emma, the Doctor begins to investigate - but he doesn't expect to find a squad of Sontarans invading the academy!
As the Sontarans begin their own lethal version of the Globe Games, the Doctor and Emma must find out what's really going on. But the Doctor is captured and forced to take part in the Sontaran Games. Can even a Time Lord survive this deadly contest?
Featuring the Doctor as played by David Tennant in the acclaimed Doctor Who series from BBC Television.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book although I wish it was not a quick read (as I wish it was a normal length book)Published on 5 Jan. 2014 by Megan
This is a good book, but quite short, i enjoyed the fact that it bought in already known aliens rather that inventing new ones. Read morePublished on 28 April 2013 by Alice Pinney
It tells of the Doctor having to take part in olympic style games to save the day, reconmended to Doctor Who fans.Published on 5 Mar. 2013 by Phil
A fun read on a short adventure with the good Doctor... Probably would have been happier with my purchase had I realised it was a novella & not a novel...Published on 20 Jan. 2013 by Fritz O'Skennick
