CAPTURES THE SPIRIT OF THE PERTWEE YEARS PERFECTLY,
By A Customer
This review is from: Amorality Tale (Mass Market Paperback)
What an excellent book! - i'm no literary critic, but i know what i like - David Bishop, in my opinion has managed to write a story that just jumps out of the page at you - ironically i bought this book as i just wanted something to read during a long day off and it was the only one in the store i hadn't read - talk about serendipity!! i could clearly picture how the BBC would've filmed this story and how i would've smiled at some of the special effects (if you've read this you'll guess what i'm talking about)- the characters of the doctor and sarah were incredibly clear and the whole thing captured the spirit of their season together and slots nicely between THE MONSTER OF PELADON and PLANET OF THE SPIDERS - thereby extending the relationship between sarah-jane and HER doctor which, again in my opinion, was one of the more interesting pairings in the show's history - anyway, to sum up (after far too much waffle - sorry!)you must read this book, it's rivetting from beginning to end and brings the child-like excitement that was doctor who very much into an adult world without losing any of the magic!
