|Doctor Who: Shada|
(Listened to audiobook)
I like Doctor Who, but just the new series, and not enough to read any books. I imagine compared to other Doctor Who books this is pretty good.
I actually read Doctor Who: Shada because I’m a big Douglas Adams fan, and this book is based on one of his TV scripts. Compared to Adams’s books, Doctor Who: Shada doesn’t impress.
The plot has some interesting moments but is pretty standard classic Who. Many of the characters are precursors to characters in later Adams works, and the author does throw in some fun references to H2G2.
If you’re into classic Who, I’m sure you’ll love this book. If you’re just a completist Adams fan, you can save yourself the time and read the Wikipedia summary.
