Customer Review

on 4 July 1999
Mostly great stories and writing styles, the Doctors and his companions captured true to their on screen characters and in some cases developed even further - most notably the relationship between Ian and Barbara in "Romans Cutaway." "uPVC" is a wonderful mix of comic Troughton and soulful McCoy. "Good Companions" meets up with an old friend, whos previous strong character seems to have finally broken, and a new one who I suspect we may be reading more of some time. Lots of temporal paradoxes exist throughout this book and seem an easy excuse to get away with stories that otherwise you'd think were a little untrue to the series. It would be good to know exactly where each story fits in with each Doctor's time stream and I still don't know how the 2nd Doctor manages to be travelling alone in "Scientific Adviser." If you can follow what is happening in "Femme Fatale" the first time round you must be a Time Lord - still it is good to have some stories to think about unlike the dire drivel that is the only real poor piece in the entire book - "The Sow in Rut," a ghost story akin to K9 & Co and totally unscientific in a way the Doctor would not approve of at all. Overall the book is an entertaining read with varied styles and a good few surprises. I just wish there was some kind of continuity between stories as with the Decalog series.
