The sense of peace and thematic symmetry. This had an unusual twist on the typical expectations for a doctor who story, and I liked the sense of humans learning from past mistakes through legend.
This is really strongest in contrast, because it does things that you don't usually expect in a doctor who story.
The village elder.
For some reason, this was the kind of book I really liked that I kept pausing. It's something to pace out and savor.
This has an interesting sense of tranquility about it, and it's neat to see religion not portrayed as a ploy for an evil alien for a change.
I think the reader was great, and I might give Justin Richards another try, but the lack of explanation and payoff for the original concept is frustrating.
No, I'm still interested in the scifi genre as a whole, and I still like doctor who.
Her acting chops show off well, and I've already tried other books read by her and found her range to my liking.
I'm not sure that I'd cut anything from this work. Rather I'd want to add more things. The initial weird moment really needs a payoff that the story is lacking, and some external agency besides the warring concerns of the reptiles and humanoids.
I still don't understand why a the mirror created a glass duplicate at the start, or what those hostile dopplegangers were doing.
I absolutely love Incursion stories, where some other realm is percolating into the world we know and love. This premise is what really hooked me.
The subject of another cosmos leaking into ours was the best bit, although David Tennant's spine-chilling loin-warming brogue is a close second.
The "Stop shouting my name!" scene at the fountain.
This is the kind of book that was so gushingly intense and fun I had to pause it to recover my breath and savor the experience.
The eldritch and un-knowable atmosphere of this story was great.
