    Fave Who NSA so far

    Really, really enjoyed this. The Doctor is perfectly characterized for a solo NSA: It's the Ten we know and love, but with a darker edge. The just-introduced supporting characters are dynamic and sympathetic and likeable -- and their fates not necessarily predictable.

    "Prisoner of the Daleks" surprised with a fair few twists, which made for a fast-paced story that was tough to put down. (In fact, I didn't -- stayed up well past my responsible-adult bedtime so I could finish). And, of course, there are Daleks, lots and lots of Daleks. Here, Baxendale deftly presents them as murderers, geniuses and perfect foils for the Doctor. The conflict escalates beautifully and cleverly, and the ending satisfies (without being hokey). In all, a terrific read.

    Consistent Characterization of the Doctor and lots of Dalek-ness.

    In this volume of the Doctor's adventures, I found a more consistent and true Doctor Who than I'd previously encountered. The writer does a great job keeping him in character, which earns him a kudos from me. Some of his dialogue is brilliantly perfect, and the descriptions of his mannerisms are spot-on.
    Other characters are well-written, although it is a little obvious which of them will be picked off later on, and I wish I knew more about a few of them.
    In the continuity of the Whoinverse, I don't know if this fits into the timeline correctly or if I'M missing something. However, it's so enjoyable I don't begrudge the book its suspension of belief. Maybe I'm just overthinking it.
    The plot is solid, with the required twists and tricks and technobabble, although not stunningly original (Daleks = emotionless jerkfaces who get tricked, as per usual) although that might be in part due to the fact that the author had to work with pre-established enemies and not one of his own creation.
    The settings for the story are fantastic, pushing the boundaries of reality in the style of the new TV series.
    Completely worth it, and the best I've read so far (granted, haven't read too many of them yet.)

    Loved It

    The David Tennant Doctor is here, and better than ever! Being a big fan of the BBC hit TV show and this being my favorite Doctor I decided to buy it.
    I read this even before I became a fan of David Tennant and the BBC show, but I caught on quick and got the great, thrilling and touching moments of the book. Such a good buy! It has a very real and origianl storyline. The Doctor doesn't need the help of Rose, Donna, or Martha here, the other crew of Dalek bounty hunters gives this book an edgy toch that any of the companions couldn't give to the outcasted, in this book, Doctor. It shows the true evil of the Daleks and human sacrifice. Its a grat buy and its the best Doctor Who book so far!
