Action packed, intelligent sci-fi
on 21 September 2005
Many moons ago I used to read a lot of science fiction but over the years my tastes have changed and I have drifted away. However, when the opportunity arose to buy some cheap DW books I thought I may as well see what they are like and I must say that the novels in the 8th Doctor series that I have read so far have been excellent.
'Frontier World' sees the Doctor and his two companions on a world ran by a bioengineering company that specialises in food production. There must be a reason why the T.A.R.D.I.S was drawn here and a little digging soon uncovers a plot to genetically engineer new live forms using alien plant DNA.
This novel is very fast paced and is a highly entertaining action romp. The characters are well rounded and the 8th Doctor comes across as a very interesting take on Who (pity it was never explored).
'Frontier Worlds' coupled with the also excellent 'Year of the Intelligent Tigers' means that I will definitely be reading more DW 8th Doctor books in the future.
