Doctor Who: The Game of Death (The Darksmith Legacy Book 6)
Doctor Who: The Game of Death (The Darksmith Legacy Book 6) - Trevor Baxendale Read originally in 2012. Re-read in 2016.

The book was very good, but it was too short for the plot to be great. This made the book a bit too rushed for the mystery to develop well. Still, a good fast-paced book.

Full review soon.

Doctor Who: Heart Of Stone
Doctor Who: Heart of Stone - Trevor Baxendale

I still have to watch the last season of Doctor Who, but since I don't have a lot of time I'm coping for the moment with reading these short Doctor Who books. Which also focus on characters that I like better.


The 11th Doctor, Amy and Rory find themselves on a farm where they find some weird moon rock. Definitely something strange is going on.


I really quite liked this one. It was a reading an episode of the series. which always is a good thing. It was a very quick read as well, the story moved fast and there was a nice mystery to solve. The characters from the series were portrayed very well in my opinion. I would certainly pick up other Doctor Who novels by this author.


Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!


Other Doctor Who novels I've read and reviewed:

* 12th Doctor:

Silhouette (Killer Origami), The Blood Cell (Prison), The Crawling Terror (Giant Insects), Lights Out (No More Coffee

* 11th Doctor:

Touched by an Angel (Weeping Angels), Death Riders (Deadly Carnival)

* 10th Doctor:

Keeping Up With The Joneses (Strange village)

* 4th Doctor:

The Drosten's Curse (Weirdness)

* 3rd Doctor:

Deep Time
Doctor Who: Deep Time - Trevor Baxendale
[I received a copy of this novel through Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.]

3 to 3.5 stars

This is the last book in the “Glamour Chronicles” series. I’m glad I seemingly read them in the “right” order, because while they were supposed to be readable in just any order, I don’t think they really are. At least, “Deep Time” should come last, as it brings a conclusion to this whole Glamour thing. A good or a bad thing, depending on how you see it: I felt that this story may have fared better on its own, because the way it tied in with the elusive Glamour was a bit vague. It still worked in the end, though, so that wasn’t too much of an issue, at least.

In any case, it was way, way better than “Big Bang Generation”. Not over the place, and one of those darker Doctor Who stories, where danger feels more real, where people die in gruesome ways.

This time, Twelve and Clara embark on board the Alexandria, a brand new spaceship, in an expedition financed by a rich guy. Pretty much every member of the expedition has their reasons to try and find the mysterious Phaeron Roads, an ancient network of now-collapsed wormholes. At the end of the journey, they hope to find what their heart most desires: a long-lost parent, the money to at last find a place where they can live in peace, the kind of adventure money can’t buy… And within the Glamour Chronicles, doesn’t that ring a bell? After all, from the beginning of this trilogy, it’s been about “wanting”...

The plot was classical, should I say: not very original (expedition gets stranded, time and space go wonky, some people die, the answer comes through what remains of a mysterious ancient race…), but it was enjoyable, with well-timed dark moments. It would've deserved more development, more fleshing out. Like the other novels in the trilogy, it was short, and didn't leave much room for additional details.

I found the Doctor more active than in previous books, more “Doctor-like”, with more important screen time, too, and as a result, “Deep Time” felt like an actual TV episode, in spite of the large cast of characters (the large cast had kind of killed Twelve’s presence in “Big Bang Generation”, in my opinion). And speaking of these secondary characters, they were interesting enough; their backgrounds were kept to minimum information, yet it still allowed me to draw a fairly good picture of them (well, alright, Flexx and Cranmer less than the others). I wasn’t too convinced about Clara, though, as she was a bit too… passive to my liking. There were several instances of characters fainting after a time shift, for instance, and she was just a little too often part of the “weak” ones who didn’t wake up fast. I’m not really fond of such devices.

Conclusion: Not an exceptional novel, but one that does well enough as an enjoyable Doctor Who story.

Fear of the Dark - Trevor Baxendale

Wow, so much darker than what you'd expect from a Doctor Who story. Interesting but flawed.
