Overview

Sebastiene was perhaps once human. He might look like a nineteenth-century nobleman, but in truth he is a ruthless hunter. He likes nothing more than luring difficult opposition to a planet, then hunting them down for sport. And now he's caught them all - from Zargregs to Moogs, and even the odd Eternal...

In fact, Sebastiene is after only one more prize. For this trophy, he knows he is going to need help. He's brought together the finest hunters in the universe to play the most dangerous game for the deadliest quarry of them all.

They are hunting for the last of the Time Lords - the Doctor.

Featuring the Tenth Doctor and Donna as played by David Tennant and Catherine Tate in the hit sci-fi series from BBC Television.

The Doctor and Donna, two time travellers, land once again on a foreign planet where they split up while trying to help some people. They wake up alone on a completely different place: Donna is a guest in a hotel that is not as peaceful as it looks and the Doctor is being chased by several people he has never met before and he does not know why. The person responsible for their situation is Sebastiene, a man who hides a secret he himself is unaware of, but can change everybody’s lives. Sebastiene is a hunter who wants to be the one who kills a Time Lord. The Doctor and Donna have to find each other before Sebastiene kills the Time Lord... As it happens with other Doctor Who books that belong to the new series, some knowledge of the characters is required to fully understand what is happening and the characters’ behaviour may seem a bit odd otherwise. But this doesn’t mean that readers who have never watched an episode won’t understand the plot. Although these books can be read by people of all ages, the plot may seem to be confusing to younger readers. It is a very good plot and everything is explained in the end, but younger readers may find it difficult to notice the little details that lead to the explanation. The thing that is confusing is that there are two Doctors; one is real and the other is just a boy who wanted to be the Doctor and who now looks like him. Neither of them know at first if they are the real Doctor and the reader faces the same problem, as some of the chapters focus on one Doctor and others, on the other one. But it is not until close to the end that the reader and the real Doctor learn who is the Doctor and who is just a boy who wants to live his dream. This plot is very well written. Enough things are hinted so that readers think they know who the real Doctor is but also there are at the same time enough clues to make them doubt of the identity of who they think is the real Doctor. This happens with both Doctors. It is a great Doctor Who novel that successfully challenges the readers' attention! The author has written more novels about different Doctors that I hope to read some day.

This book got to the point where i dont think the auther knew who was who, everybody was traiding places deceting everybody else. Was a mistery worth reading , the Doctor puts on a great show and makes everybody question who is who, and what is this all about. Pretty good read all around, deffently recomend it.

There's a line in this book where the doctor says "let's get involved." and it might just be me but i think that pretty much sums up the doctor

This book is fun but confusing. A lot of things are not clear until the very end, and more things are never made clear. It gets frustrating. If you are patient enough to stick through, this is a good read. But there are certainly better books in the DW library.

Who's trap is it anyway? Ah Who knows... with all the characters exchanging places, the mystery only grows, with surprises, and misadventures in only the way 10 and Donna can deliver. And even the end leaves a hinted at mystery that might need the Doctor to revisit it some time..
