    One thought on “Doctor Who: Fear Itself”

    1. Is it weird to have nostalgia for something that only recently ended?Of course I'm speaking only in a relative fashion. All of one book ago I read the last of the Eighth Doctor novels, the final time he would appear as the present incarnation and not some "unseen adventure" version. Yet, lo and behold, I go to read the next Past Doctor Adventure book in the line and it seems that the Eighth Doctor is already making an appearance. That's service of some kind, or at least the mark that someone was [...]

    2. *I missed this one and had to read it out of sequence*What a fantastic story! It had me fooled the whole way through. Seeing the way the Doctor and Fitz work together as a team is really moving. They've been through so much--so much more than either of them realizes. It's a really interesting situation. The Doctor's heart situation continues to provide an interesting insight into his character, his memory loss . . . not so much.Anji's whole misadventure on Mars was less fun, and brings into ques [...]

    3. Had to drag myself through the first third, but am glad I persisted as it did pick up as the plot unravelled. Sadly I probably missed some of the plot due to my initial diagonal reading. Also, I need to start reading these in at least some semblance of order, as I am forever confused about the nature of the Doctor's amnesia, his number of hearts, and the state of his home planet. All in all, quite enjoyable.

    4. Past Doctor Adventure (PDA) with the eighth Doctor, Anji, Fitz. One of the handful of Doctor Who 'original novels' that can be called a mature novel. But if you're particularly bothered by peculiar punctuation usage and choppy sentences, you're not going to be as thrilled with it as some readers.

    5. 42 WORD REVIEW:Fear Itself is of that rare breed of standalone Doctor Who novel the success of which doesn’t depend on familiar echoes of the programme itself. Wallace crafts a mystery — one that actually wouldn’t work on television — melding setting, characterisation and genuine intrigue.

    6. I didn't really enjoy this one, especially the twist BUT it is a lot better than some of the Doctor Who novels I've read recently.

    7. An excellent, fast-paced, exciting read. Timelines are a little confusing but overall a good read. 3 1/2 stars.
