"I've had many faces. Many lives. I don't admit to all of them. There's one life I've tried very hard to forget-the Doctor who fought in the Time War."

     The Great Time War has raged for centuries, ravaging the universe. The Daleks and the Time Lords deploy ever more dangerous weapons in desperate attempts at victory, but there is no end in sight.
     On the outer rim of the Tantalus Eye, scores of human colony planets are now overrun by Dalek occupation forces. A weary, angry Doctor leads a flotilla of Battle TARDISes against the Dalek stronghold but in the midst of the carnage, the Doctor's TARDIS crashes to a planet below: Moldox.
     As the Doctor is trapped in an apocalyptic landscape, Dalek patrols roam amongst the wreckage, rounding up the remaining civilians. But why haven't the Daleks simply killed the humans?
     Searching for answers, the Doctor meets 'Cinder', a young Dalek hunter. Their struggles to discover the Dalek plan take them from the ruins of Moldox to the halls of Gallifrey and set in chain events that will change everything. And everyone.

Okay, I was prepared to love or hate this book. I ended up liking it for the reasons that I didn't. I was confused as to which Doctor this was. Most of the book reads like Sylvester McCoy. Then it sounds like Tom Baker, and finally at the very end I could imagine the War Doctor. I guess the author did a good job of capturing the Doctor. I just wanted something out of this Doctor a little darker or something, since he was the Doctor "No more". Still, it is a good Doctor Who book.

Of all of the Doctors, each of the numbered ones have enough radio and TV shows from which to extrapolate a new story that fits that particular Doctor's character. However, any story about the War Doctor (played by Sir John Hurt) has to be created from scratch as his only appearances are limited to "The Day of the Doctor" and "The Name of the Doctor". George Mann has set this story of the War Doctor in the middle of the Time War between the Time Lords of Gallifrey and the Daleks. As the story opens, the Daleks have taken over the planets in the vicinity of the Tantalus Eye, a phenomenon that "physics dictates shouldn't exist" but does. The Daleks plan to harvest the energy emanating from the Eye in their latest attempt to win the Time War. The War Doctor crashes his TARDIS on Moldox after a fight with the Dalek fleet. When he crash lands, he meets Cinder, a young woman who is a resistance fighter against the Daleks. Together, they set off to determine what exactly the Daleks are up to and to report back to Gallifrey. As events proceed, Cinder finds that her prejudices against the Time Lords have some merit, as they seem to operate no differently than the Daleks in her mind. As easy as it was to imagine Hurt as the War Doctor, I mentally cast about a mental image for Cinder until I thought of Paramore's Hayley Williams. To mentally picture them fighting the Daleks, arguing with the Time Lords, and jetting through space helped make the book resonate with me. The book made for nice summer reading. BOTTOM LINE: A great book in order to help flesh out the War Doctor.

Ur not a true fan because you heard Doctor's robot as H-9. It's K-9 because it's a robot dog. Also: "Doctor I came in here with one leg but now I have two. Do you have something to do with it?" "Well there is a war going on you may have miscounted them." "You smart dirty dog..." "Affirmitive." "Doctor there's a child up there!" "Come on Rose. The child's fine." "Mommy?"
