3.0 out of 5 stars The Many Hands, 22 Dec. 2013
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Many Hands (New Series Adventure 24) (Hardcover)
In 1759, the Doctor and Martha find themselves running from reanimated corpses through the streets of Edinburgh. But when beings appear from the Loch, that's more than the local soldiers want to know about. And Martha finds herself mixed up with Alexander Monro, who seems to have more hands than he ought. There's ghouls and ghosties afoot in Scotland, and it's up to the Doctor and Martha to work out why and how to resolve it.

This was a story that didn't really gel too well for me - it felt like it started somewhere in the middle, and didn't have a beginning, so was hard to get involved in, or to feel that you were taking part in a story that you wanted to learn more about. While the Doctor (Tenth, as played by David Tennant) and Martha were well characterised, the story itself did not hold my interest particularly.

Yes, and it wasn't helped by seeming to start somewhere in the middle without a beginning - all a bit glib and tossed together without any real structure.

This one was called Many Hands well they obviously did naff all with this story as Mark said generic blandness sums up the product.

This novels in the range are hit & miss but another wonderful review.

Let's see my vote can stick.

Guess what it doesn't b...dy Amazon.

Yes, they definitely can be a mixed bag - some are great, some not so much.
Thanks for the feedback timelord007.
