    I ve gotten pretty lucky with my experience with the Doctor Who tie in novels and Apollo 23 is no exception It s a fun adventure featuring the Doctor and Amy and Richards author did a good job of capturing the spirit of the characters Plus, it was cool to see a story that s partially set in the U.S.

    And so my first read for 2012 ends up being a Doctor Who novel.I saw this on a stand at the library last week and grabbed it just as I was about to leave It sat on the shelf with the other library books and I forgot about I saw it there yesterday and thought I d pick it up.It s been a hard couple of weeks for me, with my 7 year old with ADHD at home for the summer holidays and my CFS dragging me down I don t think I could read anything complicated if I tried I m slowly rereading Susan Dexter And so my first read for 2012 ends up being a Doctor Who novel.I saw this on a stand at the library last week and grabbed it just as I was about to leave It sat on the shelf with the other library books and I forgot about I saw it there yesterday and thought I d pick it up.It s been a hard couple of weeks for me, with my 7 year old with ADHD at home for the summer holidays and my CFS dragging me down I don t think I could read anything complicated if I tried I m slowly rereading Susan Dexter s The Ring of Allaire, which I m enjoying, but it s usually only a few pages or a short chapter at a time.Therefore a Doctor Who novel, the first for the 11th Doctor, which I knew was aimed at family audiences, seemed a perfect option.This is, indeed the first novel for the 11th Doctor, and I suspect that very little or possibly none of Matt Smith s interpretation of the role had been seen by the author at the time he was writing He does his best, and there are moments where the Doctor does seem something like the Doctor, but he just doesn t quite get it right I don t blame him for this I ve had 2 full seasons and 2 Christmas specials of Matt Smith s Doctor and love him inside and out which is why I grabbed this when I saw it in the first place.The thing that jarred was mainly his portrayal of the Doctor self consciously telling jokes and having them fall flat Maybe that was an idea that fell by the wayside as the 11th Doctor developed, but it doesn t feel right now Otherwise, both the Doctor and Amy felt kind of generic But as I said, I don t think the author can really be blamed for that.As for the story, it was a fun read Not earth shattering or mind boggling, but that wasn t what I was looking for The idea of the poor people dying of asphyxiation in the park as it linked to the moon, combined with the astronaut appearing in the shopping mall trailing moon dust made for a great start A solid, enjoyable story followed, leaving me glad of my impulse borrow from the library.I ve request the next few 11th Doctor novels from the library and I plan within borrowing limits to keep them around for when a light read is required I ll also be interested to see if the characterisation of both the Doctor and Amy improve as they becomefamiliar to the authors Also, bring on Rory as a charcter in the novels, because I totally love him

    Being a Doctor Who fanboy, I enjoyed this book I had no problem staying in the story when there were aspects to the plot like mind control, secret moon bases, and even balloon like alien creatures known as Talerians All fine and dandy.What always gets to me in these stories, though, are the little things An alien race files away things using a filing system built around our alphabet and numbering system They speak to each other in our language Meh I know it s fiction and purely enter Being a Doctor Who fanboy, I enjoyed this book I had no problem staying in the story when there were aspects to the plot like mind control, secret moon bases, and even balloon like alien creatures known as Talerians All fine and dandy.What always gets to me in these stories, though, are the little things An alien race files away things using a filing system built around our alphabet and numbering system They speak to each other in our language Meh I know it s fiction and purely entertainment, but it still seems to bug me no matter how many of these books I read Ah well.It was nice that this series takes place somewhat in the United States I can t wait for the next television series to start up with the Doctor in America, as well

    I ve never read a Doctor Who novel before, but I picked this up on a lark I worried that it would read like some adolescent fan fiction But instead I was wonderfully surprised It reminded me of the 1950s and 60s pulp sci fi that I consumed as an adolescent It s quite full of the humor should I say humour of the new Who Take this description of the first time we see the moon base The whole thing looked like it had been made out of enormous egg boxes for some children s school project I ve never read a Doctor Who novel before, but I picked this up on a lark I worried that it would read like some adolescent fan fiction But instead I was wonderfully surprised It reminded me of the 1950s and 60s pulp sci fi that I consumed as an adolescent It s quite full of the humor should I say humour of the new Who Take this description of the first time we see the moon base The whole thing looked like it had been made out of enormous egg boxes for some children s school project Not a bad description of the special effects during the Tom Baker years

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I really enjoyed this book It was different as the aliens were basically the human s who just happened to be under control of the aliens The Alien s were unique and I was glad that they didn t show up until the end other wise it probably would ve ruined the story I liked that the Doctor wasn t really sure that his plan would work, the plan he had about combining all of the stored minds in the water system did really seem that it wouldn t work At least that was voiced otehr wise I would ve be I really enjoyed this book It was different as the aliens were basically the human s who just happened to be under control of the aliens The Alien s were unique and I was glad that they didn t show up until the end other wise it probably would ve ruined the story I liked that the Doctor wasn t really sure that his plan would work, the plan he had about combining all of the stored minds in the water system did really seem that it wouldn t work At least that was voiced otehr wise I would ve been a little annoyed The book fit in the series with Amy and Eleven and shows just how much Amy depends, respects and have faith in the Doctor after such a short time of knowing him Even though she s known him since she was seven Unlike the other book that I read with Amy Eleven this didn t have any refrences to where this would fit into the time line But this book was really good and had a nice story line that fit perfectly into the book form You weren t really sure what was going on until later which was interesting because the first part of the book I didn t know how alien s or what the story would continue into But it was a nice read

    Richards has writtenDoctor Who books than anyone except Terrance Dicks, and those I ve read have includedhits than misses However, this isn t one of hismemorable contributions to the quasi canon at first it seems like an Eleventh Doctor rehash of The Seeds of Death but in fact the resolution is much closer to The Faceless Ones Lots of stuff thrown in here without quite gelling quantum wormholes, aliens just happening to take Richards has writtenDoctor Who books than anyone except Terrance Dicks, and those I ve read have includedhits than misses However, this isn t one of hismemorable contributions to the quasi canon at first it seems like an Eleventh Doctor rehash of The Seeds of Death but in fact the resolution is much closer to The Faceless Ones Lots of stuff thrown in here without quite gelling quantum wormholes, aliens just happening to take over a secret moonbase, and worst of all Not Enough Amy Still, the target age group will probably enjoy it
