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.
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...
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.
