5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderland - you don't have to be a Whobie, 12 May 2003
This review is from: Doctor Who: Wonderland (Doctor Who Novellas) (Hardcover)
Wonderland is the latest novella in the Dr Who Novellas series - now I'll be the first to admit, I'm not the biggest Dr Who fan in the world - I could only tell you the names of a couple of villains and companions and the like, but luckily none of this stops the enjoyment of the series as they're eminently accessible to those not versed in the intricacies of every single Who eppy ever broadcast.
Wonderland is set in ’67 San Francisco, around Haight-Ashbury; and involves an early version of the 2nd Doctor & companions.
(I spent most of the book trying to guess which incarnation it was & had it narrowed down to either the 1st or the 2nd – apparently the companions names give it away.)
So was it any good? Hoo yeah! Loved it.
The storytelling’s divine, there are neat little nods to various aspects of ‘60’s culture: like the Doc’s influence on people like Leary and George Harrison.
And there are plenty of edge-of-the seat moments in the story, even when you think you’ve got to the end and everything’s tied up, there is still a little extra excitement to be had.
Particular favourite bits of mine were: the party at Mathilda’s, Stimson the hep-cat journo, the way the Denny thing was handled & the tripping sequence.
Highly recommended.
