    A pleasant surprise!!

    This book was a wonderful surprise. I wasn't expecting much, after reading Dead of Winter, but this one was fantastic. It made me cry - actual real tears!!! - and laugh, since it's Doctor Who. There was plenty of humor, but the overall tone of the book was really sad and tragic. This book would be great for anyone, Doctor Who fan or not. It was an exciting time-travel adventure, with no background knowledge of Doctor Who needed. I highly recommend it!!!

    Must read for Dr. Who fans!

    I'm not one to write long reviews. As a fan of Doctor Who, I finally decided to start reading the books. This one was the first one I have purchased and read.

    Overall, it's an easy read and I finished it in one sitting. It is a fun adventure like those in the television series. I will definitely be reading more of the books, and would recommend it for anyone that is a Doctor Who fan!

    They are coming....

    They are right behind you, craving to send you back to when your great grandmother was a child.... You think you hear the stairs creak and dismiss it. Don't. They will only get you faster that way. One flutter of an eye later, you hear a step behind you and cringe before looking. An angel. A scream punctures the silence like a blade as you feel a cold finger touch your hand... and your past has become your future.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

      Doctor Who: Touched by an Angel is an entry in the new monster collection of books from BBC books.  It was written by Jonathan Morris who is experienced at writing Doctor Who Spin-off material.  I have been a fan of Doctor Who for a while now and as such, was worried about reviewing any sort of spin-off material.  The Doctors all possess a very unique style and voice that would be difficult to copy.  It would be so easy to make any attempt laughably horrible.  One quip in the wrong place, or one too many, “allons-y!s” and the whole thing would be ruined.  The miracle of Touched by an Angel is that it actually worked! 
                 
      Jonathan Morris spins a tale about the 11th doctor, complete with Rory and Amy.  During their travels they meet a man named mark, grieving from the death of his wife in a car accident.  He receives a letter from 8 years prior saying, “You can save her!”  He is given this chance by the touch of a weeping angel sending him back in time to his college days to re-engineer his life, and save his future wife.  The Doctor, Rory and Amy have to save the world from the resulting paradox, save mark from him-self and save themselves from the Angels.  The story follows Mark as he observes his younger self through all the stages of his life, intervening when he can to change his future.  The Doctor and his companions intervene whenever there is a risk of paradox and help Mark to cleverly avoid paradoxes while still being able to change his history. 
                  
      I was impressed at how well Morris was able to take such a convoluted sounding plot and make it simple and entertaining.  The angels were creepy as ever and received plenty of page time.  The action wouldn’t lull for long before picking back up.  In my opinion, the most impressive aspect of the book was how well Jonathan Morris captured the voice and energy of all the characters, including the Doctor.  His quips and quirks were right on and quite funny.  I couldn’t shake the feeling that I was reading the plot for a full-length feature-film, replete with Matt Smith and his charm. 
                
        I would recommend this book to any fan of the Doctor Who series.  Fans who are waiting intently for the new season and need their “Who” fix would be especially remiss to pass it up.  Even if you aren’t acquainted with the lore, this would still be a very enjoyable read for any fan of quirky science fiction.  I intend to read the rest of the books in the monster collection to keep me from getting too forlorn at having to wait until the new season airs.

    To number two (if you dont To number 2 (If you don't like spoilers DO NOT READ)

    Rory and Amy die in the last episode of season six, i think. The episode is titled "The Angels Take Manhattan".
    P.S. the statue of liberty might possibly be a weeping angel. Just sayin'.
