Customer Review

on 5 December 2000
I admit it, I started reading these Dr Who novels, and with a few exceptions, gave up after a year. They were too reliant on self reference and high concept and frankly became unchallenging and boring.
That was until I picked up the "The Ancestor Cell" on recommendation. Wow, I thought, here's a book range that might be worth keeping an eye on: why? because it dared to change all that came before it. With Gallifrey destroyed,and the Doctor with no memory it has given the writers almost carte blanche to create a new character, who is, and who isn't the Doctor as we know him.
Steve Emmerson's debut novel is a gripping and as stunning a Who book as I've ever read. All credit to Justin Richards' vision, of a Doctor that knows he different, but not why.
Characterisation in the novel is a delight, and we have what I can only describe as the "closest near romance" between the Doctor and the leading female character. Thoroughly entertaining, a book where you end up wanting more: clamouring to know where the Doctor will end up next.
I cannot recommend this or the amazing "The Turing Test" highly enough. Well done to all concerned.
