One of the best Doctor Who of all time If you liked the television adaption then you ll love this book as I ll say I personally think they re as good as ach other First read this in High School oh 15 years ago or so and remembered uite Courage Under Fire (Silver Creek, enjoying it After seeing it a bit back turned into a fantasticpisode of the show decided to revisit it Women and Tradition A Neglected Group of Folklorists expecting it to not have aged well On the contrary it still holds upspecially if you are familiar with the Seventh Doc and Benny While not flawless the framing story is far better
in the teleplay version the villains are weak but the story the teleplay version the villains are weak but the story t about them now is it tc it s a solid read that should be njoyed by both old school fans looking for a great seventh doc story and new fans who want to see where one of the best Skyfire The Seven Signs eps of modern Who came from So far I ve read about 70 Doctor Who books over several ranges Not only will I say that this is probably my absolute favorite so far I ll say it is going to be a hard one to top for sure Like many I saw the 10th Doctor TV version of this before delving into the novel and it is also one of my favoritepisodes of the new series It pales in comparison to the book While the basics of the story are all there the novel is sufficiently different from the TV version that you lose very little from the novel The story is an The Idea of Propaganda A Reconstruction exploration of what it is to be the Doctor and what it is to be a human The story is interestingngaging and Shadowplay extremely original and the characters are so well wrought that you can t help but feel for them This story takesverything good about a Doctor Who story and runs with it Absolutely fantastic One of the best reads One More Theory About Happiness everI listened to the audio version of this and it must be added that not only is it one of the best produced audio novels I ve had the pleasure of listening to complete with soundffects and great background music but Lisa Bowerman does one of the most superb jobs narrating ver One of the best pieces of original Doctor Who fiction yet published A magnificent story full of humanity and wit The Doctor Who novel that was recently adapted as Human NatureFamily of Blood It s available free online convenient I was unfamiliar with both the Doctor Seven and the Companion Bernice Summerfield the novel is about and to be honest I m really mostly invested in Ten although now also in Martha Martha is amazingly Njoying her holiday in the same town But then she meets a future version of the Doctor and things start to get dangerous very uickly With the Doctor she knows gone and only a suffragette and an lderly rake for company can Benny fight off a vicious alien attack And will Dr Smith be able Wesome beams so this was really mostly intriguing in terms of what hadhad not been
Changed Between Book And Screen between book and screen only other thing that really struck me was that the Doctor stated uneuivocally that he s not capable of small love big
love for humanity yes but not romantic love That s certainly something to ponder specially since I don for humanity yes but not romantic love That s certainly something to ponder specially since I don think it s trueAnyway I suspect this is only interesting if you are really into Doctor Who right now Which I am Honestly if you re going to read a Doctor Who novel this is the one Flipping amazing And now I understand what the fuss is about Bernice Summerfield and I want to read Olivia and the Billionaire Cattle King every book in which she appears She may be my new favourite companion This is the book upon which the 10th Doctorpisodes Human Nature and Family of Blood are based The basic plot is somewhat similar but the details are all uite different This makes a certain amount of sense because Benny and the Seventh Doctor are uite different from Martha and the Tenth Doctor But some don t make sense in the book Joan Redford is a science teacher in the TV show she is demoted to a nurse It would of course be much harder to pass Martha off as the Tenth Doctor s niece being put up on a break from University as Benny was but did they have to make her of all things a maid in the school The plot has similar themes but these changes necessitate uite a few changes of detail and the Doctor s romance with Joan Redfern is much advanced from the bookIf you re not at all familiar with the New Adventures series from the nineties there are a few things that might make sense I know a little by osmosis although the only NA I read cover to cover was Ship of Fools knowing that little bit helped a little bit but I uite Saving CeeCee Honeycutt enjoyed the bookven if there were a few bits that would have made sense had I read previous volumes in the New Adventures SeriesI recommend this book to Dr Who fans of classic and new series alikeAlso there are some inside jokes with the names that fans of Classic Who and New Who will both Velva Jean Learns to Drive enjoy Reprinted as part of the History Collection fans will know this from the TV adaptation with the Tenth DoctorOriginally part of the Virgin Nee Adventures with the Seventh incarnationIt s a fascinating read there s numerous differences between the two versions so makes forssential readingOne of the best Doctor Who book Rising Strong ever writte.

maybe a couple of chapters that are a little boring most of the book it sa couple of chapters that are a little boring most of the book it s really Gilded Lives Fatal Voyage enjoyable There are lot of times where the book can be really atmospheric and that helps to give the story a bit of drive One of the best parts about the novel are the villains who are basically a family wanting to gain timelord abilities by using a Pod which has turned The Doctor into a human called John Smith My favourite member of the family is probably Greeneye not sure why but I just found the character to be an interesting part of the book Another aspect of the book I really liked is the character of Timothy Dean who is pretty relatable to readers and I did find myself caring about him uite a lot Bernice Summerfield is also really well written here and does get a lot to do After all Cornell did create her character in the book Love and War I don t what to say too much on the book as I really want other Who fans to go into this not knowing too much about it as there are some parts of the story that are best left for the new reader toxperience Overall it s a fantastic book one of my favourites and definitely.
