An excellent story, but I literally read the whole thing in less than three hours. I felt like I didn't get my money's worth, ya know? Especially since the kindle version is less than three dollars. Aside from that, it left me feeling exactly as if I had just watched a previously unseen episode with the ninth doctor, which is exactly what I wanted. But for ten bucks a piece, this is probably the only one of the 50th anniversary collection I will buy.

The best part was Captain Jack's diary entries. It was hilarious,moving, and thrilling all at the same time. It captured the ninth doctor's, Rose's and Captain Jack's personalities perfectly, as well as the ninth doctor's and Rose's relationship.

Ninth Doctor, Rose, and Captain Jack. A Neanderthal randomly shows up in modern-day Bromley (Google Maps says it's about half an hour from London, but I know little about it otherwise), so naturally the Doctor and Rose saddle Jack with looking after the poor guy while they go investigate how he was thrown forward through time. The book is interspersed with some journal entries from Jack and Das, the Neanderthal. Jack trying to adjust Das to modern times is pretty hilarious and occasionally a little sad.The Doctor and Rose, meanwhile, wind up investigating an experiment conducted back in Das' time by a bunch of people from the future. They mostly all have emotion patches, which is never good. And someone's doing genetic experiments that result in things that like to eat people. Also never good. There's a lot of running around, and I think at some point Rose is nearly forced to marry a Caveman. I liked the book, but I generally found Jack and Das' journal entries more entertaining than the main plot.

A competent but unchallenging novel from one of the better Doctor Who authors of old. The characterisation of the regulars feels a little "off" so I'm not sure what gareth was working from - whether he'd seen performances or was just going from the character's bio.

Enjoyable and interesting enough concepts, but I wanted more time with some of the characters (on both sides). Also, the Doctor's deus ex machina this time around felt extremely unlikely and contrived.

9 was good too. But 10 was best. 1st wasn't that good.

Ask yourself this: What really defines a "whovian"? Why is one doctor better than another? He's just the doctor. You like him for every aspect of himself. Now stuff like comic books and otherwise is worth arguing over, but not THE DOCTOR. (Screw marvel, all hail DC comics)
