3.0 out of 5 stars Earthworld, 24 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: Earthworld: 50th Anniversary Edition (Paperback)
This is the representative story for the Eighth Doctor in this 50th anniversary year of novel offerings. The story was first published in 2001, and features the Eighth Doctor with Fitz and Anji. The Doctor is still having some troubles with his memories; when the Tardis lands on what appears to be Earth, the three Tardis travellers are surprised to find themselves being chased by a caveman - all does not appear to be what they might have first thought. Meanwhile, Fitz has found himself acting out a role as an expert on twentieth-century culture, while Anji and the Doctor have teamed up with some apparent terrorists. Confused? Well, the storyline is slightly wacky, and I found the `humour' sometimes a bit off base. Much of the action is through the narrative of Anji or Fitz, so the Doctor is not really terribly `present' for much of the story, which is a shame. Good, not great; and definitely not what I would have considered the best example of a representative Eighth Doctor 50th anniversary story.

I enjoyed this one but i think your 3 star review is fair.
I agree the storys to wacky in pace at times & misguided humour.
Once again great review.
