    One thought on “Doctor Who: The Tomorrow Windows”

    1. I've read a few books that have claimed to be like Douglas Adams and with few exceptions, they usually range from falling way short to being downright insulting. The only person who can write Douglas Adams is Douglas Adams and, sadly, he is gone. This one though, the author approached it more as an homage than an attempt to copy his style and I think he did it pretty well. It has the hallmark silliness with a subtle dark under-current. It's a little lacking on the logic-bending whitty dialog cha [...]

    2. As far as I'm concerned, Jonathan Morris is allowed to do whatever he wants with "Doctor Who". "Festival of Death" proved that you could write time travel twistiness without throwing it in our faces all the time how clever you are (it's heartening to see even the BBC recognized its quiet genius by reissuing it recently) and "Anachrophobia" had some wacky ideas that didn't fall apart under the weight of themselves, and some chilling setpieces to boot. He comes across as someone who knows the show [...]

    3. Douglas Adams, the Doctor, the fate of civilizations, and Brian Blessed.This is one of only two books that I've ever finished and immediately flipped back to page one.I know the Eighth Doctor novels are a long series, but I picked up this one at random and understood it just fine. For some reason, everyone is trying to stop the Doctor from hearing the word "Gallifrey," but that never really mattered. The important part is the beautiful science fiction satire going on all around it.The Doctor dis [...]

    4. "Festival of Death" is the book that tends to get all the press, but "The Tomorrow Windows" is undoubtedly Jonathan Morris' true masterpiece. This is everything "Doctor Who" should aspire to be: exciting action-adventure, playful with concepts of space-time, populated by well-drawn characters, companions with meaty roles, huge cartloads of witd at the center of it all, a Doctor with great, heroic heart. But what truly makes this novel so wonderful is the deep well of humanity on offer. So much m [...]

    5. So this is another "WTF did I just read" book from the EDA range. The homage to Adams is apparent and stays just the right side of pastiche or parody. I think the first time I read it, which was a lot closer to its original publication, I rated it 5* but I think 4 is more appropriate. There are a few moments where the book feels slightly too aware of itself as Adams-esque and occasionally it seems that this is more important than the actual story. Over all, however, its excellently written, and [...]

    6. Eighth Doctor Adventure (EDA) with Fitz and Trix. Non-arc, although like all EDAs it makes reference to other adventures. Somewhat Douglas Adams-esque in writing style, with a Dave Stone-esque body count. I like it.

    7. Definitely Douglas Adams-inspired, and one of the more fun Who novels I've read in a while. The author created an interesting cast of aliens, and I liked seeing Fitz playing detective. I should note that most of the plot twists weren't big shockers, but the book is still a nice romp.

    8. One word for this book is "fun".Morris is at play with a lot of the traditional elements of Doctor Who here and is really jumbling it all up. There's some magnificent meta moments and all of the supporting characters are great.

    9. Need to write a book with so many twists and confusions? Go to Jonathan Morris. Wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey before it became fashionable.
