In fact, before it was a book there was a possibility that it was going to be picked up for the non-existent Season He also likes Spurs, but hates Sunderland. Well, The Dying Days is a good place to start, since you can read it for free and all. The new series novels are a bit light for me, but some of them would have made great 2-part episodes.

Rose is a little more in the background in this caper than the other 3 books in the Ten series but has a few good scenes. All and all a good Doctor Who novel. Lots of actions, a fun and crazy Doctor and some nasty aliens. View 1 comment. Oct 15, Connie rated it liked it Shelves: read-in , doctor-who-books , owned. Source: I own this book.
The story was interesting and it was fast paced, anything you could want from a Doctor Who book but the reason this is getting three stars is because at times, the Doctor and Rose had quite a childish dialogue. They didn't seem to be as connected as they are in the show, and that ruined the atmosphere for me a lot. Why can't they ever just stay together in these books?
Oct 11, Sara rated it really liked it Shelves: fiction , doctor-who. Oh, I can never get enough of the 10th Doctor and Rose! In this book there's a moment when someone refers to her as his girlfriend and he doesn't even flinch.
The plot concerns yet another alien menace that happens to be hiding in the United Kingdom. What are the odds? But I liked the locals and the contrast between the ordinariness they tried to maintain in their lives and the horror that surrounded them. The Doctor and Rose seem to be very much in character, and I liked how they really had to Oh, I can never get enough of the 10th Doctor and Rose! The Doctor and Rose seem to be very much in character, and I liked how they really had to work together and persuade others to help them in order to resolve the problem.

Mar 26, Peter rated it really liked it Shelves: doctor-who-fiction. A good rollicking read. This got my eldest daughter into reading sooo this gets a high mark. It's just like reading an episode of the TV series, a simple uncomplicated read that could easily be read in a day. I have given this four stars because I found the ending a little too fantastic even for Doctor Who. The actual premise of the story almost charactizes Schizophrenia in an easy way to explain it to children. That is quite dark. A battle Alien ship falls to earth in and eight children witnessed it.
The mind of the main occupant separates itself and lands in the minds of each of the children.
All end up either mad or scared to talk. One is not even known. Even the Doctor doesn't wor I have given this four stars because I found the ending a little too fantastic even for Doctor Who. Even the Doctor doesn't work it out until the last ten pages. I liked Rose in this as she acted like a big sister to little Ali one of the modern children - in a similar gang to the first seven. Ali latches onto Rose and the Doctor and ends up being the only one who can save the day.
She is quite a feisty little girl and I can't help but think she was a slight inspiration for Amelia Pond.

As I said this is the only one that I probably would give four stars too as there was one thing about the end that does not fit right for me but otherwise a wonderful story about what schizophrenia must be truly like.

Mike Tucker does lots of things right -- he nails the Doctor and Rose perfectly, gives both of them important things to do, and for an added bonus cooks up a scary, atmospheric romp and well-drawn peripheral characters.
Tucker also gets extra points for excellent use of descriptive language. Just because a story is targeted to Young Adult readers doesn't mean that vocabulary or sentence structure need be dumbed dow This was a particularly strong entry in the BBC line of tie-in Doctor Who novels. Just because a story is targeted to Young Adult readers doesn't mean that vocabulary or sentence structure need be dumbed down. Tucker's prose is evocative, and as an added special bonus, Anthony Head turns in a delightful performance as the narrator.
Get the audio version just to hear him do the voices -- from the Doctor and Rose to the aliens and Welsh children -- it's a joy to listen to. Dec 04, Liza H rated it really liked it Shelves: done. This was one of the better Doctor Who novelisations I've read. The characters reflected the "real" Rose and Ten, as well as their actions.
And the plot was actually pretty creepy The aliens' people came to Earth Wales! The Rose and The Doctor, of course, thwart their plans!

I graded on a curve because these DW novels are usually either terrible and disappointing or fairly accurate and entertaining. Ten and Rose seemed true to form, the story had layers that weren't immediately obvious, and I thought the monsters and their motives were creepy enough not to be cheesy.
