Doctor Who: Hope

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic first solo effort by Mark Clapham, 17 Feb. 2002
Hope is Mark Clapham's first solo Doctor Who book, although he has co-authored one other, and co-authored two spin off books.
What Hope does so well is straddle the old "rad/trad" line. I can easily see this as a big-budget made-for-TV movie version of Dr Who for 2002...it has bad guys, action sequences, humor, monsters, and all the things that made TV Doctor Who so popular. At the same time, it has excellent, poignant characterization of the sort that we've seen in the original novels and it successfully carries over some of the themes established in recent EDA's. Thus, Hope, I think rises to the challenging task of satisfying all tastes in the hugely diversified ranks of taste in Doctor Who fandom.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic mix of whimsy and great sci-fi concepts, 10 Nov. 2001
The convention of dropping the TARDIS crew into a world where the rules of conventions of fairy tales exists (without ever explicitly stating an actual fairy tale) is fantastic. The humor is wonderful without being smug or over the top. This is a charming novel.
It's interesting that Simon Bucher-Jones and Kelly Hale manage to adapt the storytelling style of a fairy tale without ever making it sound like a parody or satire. It seems that they love both fairy tales and Doctor Who and have successfully brought the two worlds together. I highly recommend this novel.
