AMAZING!!!!!!! I LOVE DOCTOR WHO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND THE BOOK!

This Doctor Who novel is the first of a set of three released this fall. In it, The Doctor, Amy, and Rory encounter a small town of killer robots. Its' up to the titular time lord to set off a nuclear explosion in 1981 America without starting a war and save his friends from said explosion and killer robots. This book is kind of light on the Amy and Rory bits but features some really fun bits with the Doctor. The story also features a scientist and his military superior as the main "guest stars". These characters seemed nice enough but I wish we would have seen more of the regular cast than these characters who are simply here for this story. I suppose that's the way it goes with tie-in novels like this though. The really fun part of this novel is how The Doctor has to go backwards in time second by second to avert disaster. This mechanic is written really well and will have fan going "Wibbly-wobbly, timey wimey" for sure. A fun read for those of us waiting for the upcoming 2010 Christmas special.
