5.0 out of 5 stars Who through history, 3 Jun. 2009
This review is from: Who Killed Kennedy (New Doctor Who Adventures) (Paperback)
Back cover blurb:
The shocking secret linking a Time Lord and a President
President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas on 22 November, 1963.
Now, the publication of this volume reveals frightening new information about the assassination, the real reasons why the President of the United States had to die and an incredible plan to save the man known as JFK!
These stunning revelations involve an ultra-secret military force disguised as a minor off-shot of the United Nations and an international terrorist leader who has twice brought the world to the brink of nuclear conflict.
For more than three decades the public has been fed lies, half-truths and misinformation. Now -- despite government attempts to halt the publication of this volume -- the complete, shocking story can be told. Read the book they tried to ban!

As the blurb suggests, David Bishop's `New Adventures' novel for Virgin fits the assassination of President Kennedy into a science fiction story. Featuring the Third Doctor - a departure for this range as they usually involved the Seventh - the book is a kind of mock autobiography, as callow Kiwi journalist James Stevens; a raw 18 year old in November 1963 when the assassination took place, is credited as `co-writer' by Bishop, and actually narrates the story.
In this alternate version of America's most infamous killing; Kennedy actually survives the assassination attempt and his wife Jacqui is killed instead. The grieving President subsequently leads the U.S. into a catastrophic nuclear confrontation with the Soviet Union and Red China.
Six years later, Stevens become caught-up in UK events as the newly regenerated Third Doctor (Jon Pertwee) recovers in hospital; Stevens discovers UNIT and consequently decides it's his duty to expose what he sees as a nefarious organization. However, what he eventually stumbles upon is a plot by one of The Doctor's deadliest enemies to alter the timelines by preventing Kennedy's assassination...

David Bishop's first original Doctor Who novel is an intriguing and well-plotted tale that looks at the Doctor Who universe from a different angle. Accessible, absorbing and entertaining; Who Killed Kennedy is a breath of fresh air.
