For a year, while the Master ruled over Earth, Martha Jones travelled the world telling people stories about the Doctor. She told people of how the Doctor has saved them before, and how he will save them again.

This is that story. It tells of Martha's travels from her arrival on Earth as the Toclafane attacked and decimated the population through to her return to Britain to face the Master. It tells how she spread the word and told people about the Doctor. The story of how she survived that terrible year.

But it's more than that. This is also a collection of the stories she tells - the stories of adventures she had with the Doctor that we haven't heard about before. The stories that inspired and saved the world...

Featuring the Tenth Doctor and Martha as played by David Tennant and Freema Agyeman in the hit Doctor Who series from BBC Television.

This NSA has three major strengths: 1) It covers the rebooted season 3 finale from Martha's POV; 2) it manages to get Martha pretty right; and 3) it has a nifty structure that intersperses some of the stories Martha told along her journey. Because of this, overall, it proved to be an enjoyable and speedy read, even though I found the writing falling flat much of the time.

I watch "Doctor Who" and thought the premise of this book was interesting - the Doctor's companion Martha's activities during what ultimately become the "year that never was" (and if I was her, I'd have been really annoyed about that after all the effort I put in). Anyway, it's something I've taken to reading while commuting to decompress, and so far, it is serving its purpose quite nicely. However, I don't suspect I will be reading any other DW books in the foreseeable future - but never say never!

As the other reviewers have already noted, this is the story of how Martha Jones walked the Earth in the Year That Never Was, setting everything up for the "Tinkerbell Jesus" conclusion in the last episode of Series 3. Parts of the framing narrative are really good and give a chilling picture of Earth under the Master (and would probably have been much nastier if this hadn't been a YA novel), while some other parts (like the Drast) feel like they're grafted from another story. The four short stories range from excellent (Robert Shearman's "The Frozen Wastes") to forgettable (the rest of them, really).The audiobook, narrated by Freema Agyeman, only has the frame and omits the short stories (they are, I gather, available separately from Audible). I haven't listened to it yet, but will update this review if and when I do.

Seriously? I'm so sick of all the negativity on the internet. You have your opinion we have ours. I personally like Martha. She was clever and she saved the world. I on the other hand didn't really like Rose. Go ahead. Say what you you want about me. I really don't care
