Doctor Who: The Doctor Trap (Doctor Who: New Series Adventures #26)
Sebastiene was perhaps once human. He might look like a nineteenth-century nobleman, but in truth he is a ruthless hunter. He likes nothing more than luring difficult opposition to a planet, then hunting them down for sport. And now he's caught them all - from Zargregs to Moogs, and even the odd Eternal...
In fact, Sebastiene is after only one more prize. For this trophy,
Sebastiene is physically flawless, incredibly powerful and more than a little bit maniacal. As the ruler of Planet 1, Sebastiene has everything he could ever want, but that will never be enough. He's taken to hunting down alien species, the more dangerous the better. For his ultimate prize, however, Sebastiene must enlist the help of the Endangered Dangerous Species Society, a group ...more
Доставило Endangered Dangerous Species Society, готовое загнать Доктора до смерти. Самый сладкий твист на свете – когда не понимаешь, где Доктор, а где двойник, которому внушили, что он и ...more
This is a novel based on the television series. This can be categorized as Doctor Who mixed with the story The Most Dangerous Game and throw in a switched identity theme. A ruler of a planet organizes a big game hunt and the Doctor is the game that is being hunted and the Doctor has to use his wits to survive.
I liked the concept of this book. The pro ...more
A bit disappointingly, however, the book never really did what i ...more
When it comes to Doctor Books, let's say I'm not what you could call objective. I just read them and imagine the actor playing the scenes and and 14 years old again.
This story in particular would have been better suited for the screen. It's very, very visual and there's doubles involved. So it's kind of hard to maintain suspense.
I really liked the setting and the ideas. This Sebastiene character is interesting and ...more

A rousing story that would've been better served on screen, simply because of the mixture of creatures and steampunk sensibilities. I guess I might be in the minority in that I felt sorry for the various robo ...more
An insane man with a planet.
A planet with technology so advanced that it makes this man a god.
Throw in the doctor, his number one fan (stalker) and his companion Donna Noble and you have one bloody amazing read.
Donna is my favourite companion of doctor's out of all his companions.
Highly recommend this book out of the series.
To be honest I highly recommend all the books featuring the doctor and Donna.
Also recommend all the books wer ...more
The loathsome Sebastiene (voiced brilliantly by Tovey) is organising an event for big game hunters with the quarry as the last Time Lord himself, with companion Donna, as it seems, sequestered in a Travelodge bedroom for much of the action. Fortunately ...more
That was a bit heartless for someone with two hearts.
Other than that it ...more
Donna wasn't in it too much, as this was a very Doctor-centered novel (which I approve of), and the Doctor was very.. Doctor-y - of which I also approve.
If I were to compare this to the only other Doctor Who novel I have read so far (Doctor Who: Touched by an Angel), I would say this wasn't as good, but stil ...more
Loved it! Can't wait to start my next Who novel
Messingham manages to capture the Ninth Doctor's tangents and energy and does give us a good take on what it means to be a fan but the story does little with Donna, trapping her in a travel inn for almost all of the book.
