3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing book, great character, 2 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Story of Martha (Hardcover)
I love the character of Martha Jones, because she is smarter and better looking than most assistants, and because she finally gave the Doctor a name (Doctor Smith), which he uses in this book. I was therefore eagerly looking forward to reading this, but am left afterwards feeling a bit cheated in the book if not in Martha's character. It tells the story of Martha's lost year, but feels very disjointed. No sooner are you getting into the main plot than she begins storytelling and you are somewhere and somewhen completely different. I never quite got the moral of the stories, and at one point there are actually three plots running together (an unexpected alien group turns up) so they can be a little confusing. I feel it could have been written better, with short parables about the Doctor and lingering more on her travels. USA and Africa were completely skipped and the book ends suddenly and without any final scene.
