Unlike many of the new series novels, it avoids being silly or overly light

Unlike many of the new series novels, it avoids being silly or overly light. Stephen Cole keeps the story tightly paced, from the cliffhanger opening of a sailor caught on a sinking ship to the final scene. Some of the authors don't know how to handle the tenth Doctor-either focusing too much on Tenant's manic energy or going completely flat-but Cole strikes a balance.

other New Series novels by Stephen Cole (here and here), so I'm glad to report now that I like Feast of the Drowned even more, which makes it the best Ninth or Tenth Doctor book I've read. It's not that it has the literary depth that the best of the New, Missing, Past Doctor ranges have, but it's very faithful to the spirit of Season Two (ie 2006, not 1964-5), and in particular it would fit awfully well into continuity between "New Earth" and "Tooth and Claw"; I found it easy to imagine what a.

Ever since the relaunch in 2005, I've been a fan of Doctor Who (and have later gone back to watch the classic series as well). And when I discovered there were a ton of novels based on the show as well, I knew I had to check them out. All of them have different writers, and all of them vary in degrees of quality. But all of them still capture the spirit of the show; playing out like actual episodes, while being able to utilize things that would be extremely difficult to create on the show (in terms of special effects).

Set during the time of the Tenth Doctor and Rose, a naval cruiser sinks under mysterious circumstances in the North Sea, and all aboard are lost. Rose is saddened to learn that the brother of her friend, Keisha, was among the dead....and then he suddenly appears to them as a ghostly apparition, begging to be saved from a coming "feast of the drowned". As the dead crew haunts loved ones all over London, our duo must figure out just what exactly sank the ship....and what sinister force came with it....

These books are pretty much just for fans of Doctor Who, as there's plenty of references to various episodes of the show, so the writing pretty much expects you to already know who the Doctor and Rose are, what the TARDIS is, and so on. These books pretty much play out like a professionally published fan fiction, and all the main characters behave and sound like they would on the show proper. This time around, we're introduced to an interesting, original villain who uses people's love and affection to lure more humans to their deaths. This ties in greatly to a just-as-interesting and compelling subplot, in which Rose visits some of her close family and friends again--finding out more about what happened during the time that she left Earth for a year, and discovering just how much her once-normal life has changed--for better or worse. It's an issue that was touched upon time and again on the show, but never to this close degree, and it serves as a reminder of why Rose Tyler was such a popular companion. She's the normal, but adventurous girl who brought a sense of down-to-Earth realism to such a strange universe.

Overall, this is an effectively creepy story, with a ton of suspenseful build up that leads to a literal explosive climax, and a showcase of Rose unlocking her inner superhero. Any fan of the Tyler family will enjoy this.

THIS WAS BRILLIANT! Once I started into it I just could not put it down! It makes wonderful points about love and not blindly believing what you see and is a wonderful mix of adventure, horror, suspence, mystery, with of course beautiful humor thanks to the tenth Doctor.

The story centers on The Doctor, Rose, Mickey, and Rose's friend Keisha who lost her brother when his naval ship went down. Then, her brother mysteriously appears to them as a dripping wet appirition, begging to be saved from the upcoming feast of the drowned. The sunken crew haunts people all over London, luring them to jump into the water of the Thames Twoards where the ship is, in turn luring their loved ones to join them. Soon The Doctor and Rose are drawn into a chilling mystery and a race against time to find out what sank the ship and why before preperations for the feast reach their conclusion.

Definately would recommend this to fans of the show. Matter of fact, this would have made a BRILLIANT episode of the series. It's brilliantly written and the characters are directly on point. You will not want to put this one down until you've read the whole thing, it is THAT good.

Having read more Doctor Who novels than I care to admit, I'd say that this one is the best new series novel to date (winter 2007). Many of the books rank as "Just OK," but this one kept me engaged from start to end. No plot dead zones. No passages I wanted to skip. Plenty of sharp dialog, creepy aliens, and even a nifty crash between a tug and a barge. Ooh, what fun!

Like other new series novels, it's a quick read, with a fairly straight-forward plot. Unlike many of the new series novels, it avoids being silly or overly light. Stephen Cole keeps the story tightly paced, from the cliffhanger opening of a sailor caught on a sinking ship to the final scene. Some of the authors don't know how to handle the tenth Doctor--either focusing too much on Tenant's manic energy or going completely flat--but Cole strikes a balance. There are the funny Doctor moments (including a weird and poorly-timed outburst about a ship Jack Dusty), but he also is fiercely intelligent, rude, caring, a bit frightening, and alien, a quality often missing from the new series books.

If you enjoy the new series, there's much to enjoy here. The story captures the feel and characterizations of the show, focusing as much on personal stories as the science fiction. While our heroes are trying to stop the eponymous Feast of the Drowned, Rose has to deal with the repercussions of events that happened during her "lost" year away from home. This emotional side story feeds a clever device at the heart of the narrative: love becomes a trap in an alien plot. Feast is stuck in current-day London (the Doctor seems to have trouble getting off Earth these days), but we're taken on a lively tour that starts at the Powell Estate and wanders through laboratories, a dry dock, tunnels under the city, and even the Thames. As the characters split up and go on their individual adventures, they are always connected by the central plot device.

It's the promise of the occasional gem like the Feast of the Drowned that keeps me coming back to the new series books.

My title really captures the whole thing. The book was generally enjoyable with a plot that does a great job of opening up the pre-Doctor storylines for Rose and Mickey, adding believable friends and relationships to their world.

There are a few iffy Doctor moments, in which he is just strange, rather than Doctor-like.

There is also what I found to be a glaring plot hole, which I won't address for fear of spoilers, but suffice it to say that there is only so much the human body can take before it shuts down. Some characters here exhibit super-human endurance for the sake of keeping the plot moving.

Overall, I did enjoy it. The characters were rich and the settings were really well imagined and integrated. Real suspense and catharsis.
