In the run up to Doctor Who Series 6 (or Series 32 for those of us who have been travelling with the Tardis for some time now...) I wanted to review the previous series to refresh my memory with all those unresolved plot threads that Mr. Moffat had left dangling for us viewers. As an unauthorised book, the writers are at liberty to propose and theorise a little more than if they were writing for an official BBC guide that would have to 'toe the party line.' This is a detailed and accurate summary of the series, with some informed speculation and two points of view on most topics. It was interesting to read someone else's take on which episodes worked well (Amy's Choice) and which didn't (Victory of the Daleks) but for a concise wrap up of Matt Smith's adventures so far, this can't be topped.
Just what the doctor ordered (excuse the awful pun). Reading this book in the run up to the new season of Doctor Who has helped to revive my enthusiasm and made me realise how damned complex last year's season arc was! Now to watch the boxset over the next 12 days.
I was slightly apprehensive before starting this but it rolls along quite nicely - there are two sets of review and they complement each other nicely, mainly because the main author has the first review to work from, this is also fairly broadly written so specialist knowledge isn't required.
A wonderful in depth review of Matt Smith's first season of Dr Who. I felt both writers were honest in what they wrote. Their writing made me watch the whole series again but with a different eye. This is well worth a read.
this series was one of the best but there was low points. The authors voice their opinion, no matter how different from others in a clear and confident manner that makes you believe that they are right about the episode. i relly enjoyed this book
