The Doctor Reads

Overall
4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 12-04-08

Dr Who actually read by the man currently playing Dr who. For a fan, I think that alone is worth the price of the book. The story itself is only fair. It sounds a bit to much like the plot from a comic, rather then Dr who. But its entertaining, if not terrible original.

Arthur Penhaligan has wrestled five of the Keys from their immortal guardians, the Trustees of the Will. But gaining the Sixth Key poses a greater challenge than any he has faced before. Superior Saturday is not just one of the Trustees - she is also the oldest Denizen and the most powerful and knowledgeable sorcerer within the House.

Shortest of all the Days

Overall
4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 12-04-08

A Short but decent adventure, that is not quite as interesting as other books in the series. This book seems mostly setup for the next and final book in the series. The Narrator as usual does a great job.

    4.5 out of 5 stars 252

When the TARDIS is invaded by a holographic marketing scam, the Doctor and Donna find themselves trapped on the Edifice, a purpose-built complex of luxury apartments in space. Their new environs leave much to be desired: millions of beings from across the Universe have been gathered to live side by side in similar apartments. Instead of creating neighbourly affection, it's led to terrible battles being waged in the corridors and on the stairwells.

Best of the recent Doctor Who Books

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 12-04-08

Of all the recent Dr. Who books, based on the new series, this one is the most enjoyable. The narrator (Donna from the 4th season) does a fantastic job with all the characters. The story itself is classic Who and very enjoyable. I highly recommend the book if you are a fan of the TV series.
