Slow Decay by Andy Lane
Rate this book
Clear rating
As with all “released before an actual series aired” tie-in novels, the characters in “Slow Decay” feel off, but where this differs from the first two Torchwood tie-in novels is that the author was doing enough with the characters that it mostly work ...more

Torchwood by Steven Savile
Torchwood: Hidden
by Steven Savile (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
“Hidden” is an odd story in an odd range, a series of ten audiobooks not based on any actual books. That is, these stories were never released in print, they exist only as read-aloud-audiobooks, even though the actual writing is entirely prose and in ...more

Border Princes by Dan Abnett
Rate this book
Clear rating
It’s interesting that the first novel in this Torchwood tie-in range precipitated something the actual series would later cover (a relationship of Owen’s in around 2004 factoring into why he joined Torchwood, in “Fragments”), because this novel much ...more

Rate this book
Clear rating
A collection of essays, the titular one revolving around the 2015 Hugo Awards controversies, a few circling around similar thematic material, and a few not really related beyond having come from Sandifer or friends. The book is not published anymore, ...more

Doctor Who by Russell T. Davies
Rate this book
Clear rating
Like Steven Moffat’s “The Day of the Doctor” novel, Russell T. Davies’ “Rose” isn’t really best characterised as a novelisation. It’s too different, too transformative for that. Davies didn’t rewatch the episode before writing the book, quickly disca ...more
