Thomas Page | 2 comments A good book, quite a quick read but that’s in keeping with the original Target range. Some enhancements to the TV version and the book is all the better for it. Some small jumps which you can see when watching the show are smoothed here. All in all a great book and well worth a read.

Jamieson | 12 comments This was an enjoyable read that reads quick. And while it faithfully tells the TV story, there’re lots of little continuity mentions including a mention of Bad Wolf, Torchwood, the Cracks in Time from Series 5 and the scene from The End of Time, plus it also expands on both Rose and Mickey’s backgrounds and current situations which is a nice addition and helps flesh out the characters.

There’s stuff added, including a chapter were the Doctor and Rose are herded to the London Eye by Autons in the guise of living statues. We get a short scene revealing that Donna slept through the whole thing. On top of that, the invasion itself is more fleshed out, and is made much larger and more gruesome than we saw on TV, which having just watched the TV episode, is for the better as the TV version was kinda lame and short (and very PG). In the end, this was just fun. Definitely worth checking out.
