Just as unpredictably exciting and adventurous as the first book. I couldn't stop reading and it has taken me just 2 days to read both books.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best tennis game yet?, 28 July 2009
All tennis titles have had their foibles but few, if any, have sustained the momentum promised by their first release. Grand Slam Tennis is unique in that it tries to emulate the real game as close as it is possible by being one of the first tennis games to use motion control. And that is what makes this an incredibly satisfying game to play. The positives are that you can, with sufficient practice, and a little patience, master the various strokes which bring joy to the whole gaming experience. At first it is a little frustrating, but after an hour or so you really can start to win games convincingly, so be patient as it quickly pays off. The Gram Slam mode is easily accessible and allows you to gain skills by beating legendary players; a lot more straight forward than it sounds.

The graphics, although cartoony, are excellent compared to other tennis releases. The main down side is a lack of competitions and the repetitive commentary. You do have the four Grand Slam events all present, with full licenses, but the addition of more ATP tour and other non Grand Slam competitions would have ensured more longevity for the game. However, overall this is a must buy for tennis fans, especially those who have dabbled in the real game. In my humble opinion the best tennis title yet.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Genesis of Baker's Doctor, 28 Oct. 2001
I had a choice which was hard for an eight year-old to make. 'Do I go to the Christmas Party held in the local church crypt, or stay in and watch the first episode of the good Doctor's fourth incarnation?'
Although the church crypt lured me on the day I was entranced by every episode of season twelve during the subsequent Saturdays. Tom Baker was stepping into the shoes of the very popular Jon Pertwee who had brought a Boy's Own touch of dash and gravitas to the whole proceedings. Could a man who had played a mad monk (Rasputin in 'Nicholas and Alexandra') and a villainous magician (Koura in 'The Golden Voyage of Sinbad') bring an extra dimension to the Timelord's character?
The answer was an unequivocal 'yes' and even the most hardened critics were to acknowledge that the viewing figures during the fourth doctor's were the highest of the franchises history. A fortuitous combination of Robert Holmes (script Editor) and Philip Hinchcliffe (producer)also added to the heady concotion.
This publication takes the reader through the whole journey - a ride into the innovative and wildly unpredictable world of 'Who' in the mid-70's. The twelfth season was certainly important for the fans but does it warrant an entire book devoted to it's every detail?
In short are publications of scripts justified and worth shelling out your hard earned cash for when DVD releases offer not only visuals but commentaries and various other extras?
You will want to buy this book for one, some or all of the following reasons:
1. Annotations - and plenty of them.
2. In depth exploration of the actors and their artistic chemistry. (How bizarre it is to think that Baker was extremely reserved when he first mingled with his co-stars).
3. You get to read the stories quickly without too much padding.
4. Davros made his first apearance in this season.
If you are a signed up DWAS member then this is another welcome addition to the increasing number of 'Who' biographies. But in all fairness these books are only ever published with the dedicated fan in mind. Personally, I hope this is the start of more such similar releases.
