Format: Hardcover
Another good addition to the series of Doctor Who tie-in novels. The central mystery of the story is gripping and plays out well, keeping the reader intruiged. The supporting characters are well-drawn and, above all, the characterisation of the Doctor and Martha is good. Elements of the denouement are perhaps a little reminiscent of similar events in other recent Doctor Who novels such as Wetworld and The Feast of the Drowned but overall the story idea is interesting and well written. Overall, a very enjoyable read.

I read this book with my mum and it is my ( joint with touched by an angel) favourite Doctor who book.
Also Trevor Baxendale has made the doctor very funny. Also Trevor used very good words to describe the scenes and the monster so I could picture it in my head easily. I absolutely loved this book.

Format: Hardcover
Trevor Baxendale's latest offering instantly took me back to those classic 70s and 80s Doctor Who stories such as: `The Stones of Blood', `The Android Invasion', `The Daemons' and `Terror of the Zygons'; which invariably involved the Timelord arriving in a small secluded village somewhere in England, only to uncover a malignant alien entity, whilst being aided by eccentric locals and hampered by belligerent Lords of the Manor. This gave the story a nostalgic quality for me, as well as imbuing it with cosiness and a familiarity that enabled me to quickly become immersed in the adventure. It could reasonably be argued that the characters and the monster are pretty generic, but this doesn't matter when they're all put together with such style. A great read and well worth getting hold of.

Loved this story..It sees The Doctor and Martha visit the little village of Creighton Mere..but this village has secrets.Three college students..lead by Nigel Carson..are attempting to find treasure in a cave leading up to the village well..but Nigel is in possession of somthing far more dangerious than treasure...As the story goes on The Doctor finds something nasty down the well..an alien called The Vurosis.similar in many ways to A Krynoid..a very nasty intergalatic weed..The story moves at a nice fast pace..with some great one liners for The Doctor..You can feel the energy of The Doctor and Martha coming out at you..Even The Doctor is taken aback of the size and power of The Vurosis..They make some good friends in the village...There is a part of the story where you think that The Doctor has met his match..but the ending is spectacular and the matter of the treasure is explanded also..Any Doctor Who fan should add this excellent novel to thier collection..I highly recommend it..10/10..

By Jane Aland VINE VOICE on 8 April 2008
Format: Hardcover
The 10th Doctor and Martha find themselves up against an alien weed creature that is hidden beneath an ancient well in this BBC Books novel. 'Wishing Well' has some nice characterisation, a dash of humour, and some pleasantly creepy moments - the only downside is the complete lack of any original ideas, with the novel coming over as a rather generic 'alien monster of the week'.

Well written (pun not intended) but uninspired, 'Wishing Well' will certainly entertain anyone looking for a dose of the Doctor for a two or three hours, but this is a novel that will be forgotten within an hour of turning the last page.
