    While reading the 90 s tie in novels, it s always fun to pick out the ones that have most influenced the contemporary revival of Doctor Who The Plotters is a look at some of the work by Gareth Roberts, who s done some of my favorite screenplays of Doctor Who and The Sarah Jane Adventures The Plotters is very much what it says on the tin The Author s Note clearly warns that a the events as chronicled are not remotely factual and b the story s aim is to recreate the feel of a televised Doctor Who [...]

    This was the first book I ve read by Gareth Roberts that wasn t fourth doctor and Romana II It was a first doctor adventure with Vicky, Babara and Ian While I didn t love it as much as the Romana books it was still very good It felt like a proper first doctor historical adventure, with a lot of humour thrown in for good measure Roberts included a very good disclaimer at the begining that said it was not intended to be historically accurate and recommended a proper history book on the subject of [...]

    This is a really good book I don t want to give too much of the plot away but suffice it to say that The Doctor, Barbara, Ian and Vicki arrive just prior to the opening of Parliament on The 5th of November As usual they all get embroiled in the plots and machinations of those intending to bring about the Gunpowder Plot.The writing is very good, the character are excellent and the plot is deserving a William Hartnell era story which is the author s intention Although I love the whole Dr Who genre [...]

    Other reviewers seem to be wowed by this novel to a degree that baffles me While the novel is entertaining and amusing, it is by no means brilliant Gareth Roberts pretty much admits in his author s note that he is doing to late Renaissance England what The Romans had done to Nero s Rome The TARDIS crew land they know not where The Doctor splits from Ian and Barbara in a huff so that he can take Vicki off on his own little adventure The Doctor and Vicki get caught up in court shenanigans while Ia [...]

    nwhytevejournal 1271423ml return return A Doctor Who Missing Adventure novel, featuring the First Doctor, Ian, Barbara, Vicki and the Gunpowder Plot I think this is the first Who book I have actually given up on I found the first hundred pages stylistically dull, historically stupid James I s father was not blown up at Bannockburn, the Doctor is rather unlikely to have tried staying at monasteries in England in 1605 and really offensively anti Catholic I skimmed a couple of online reviews of the [...]

    A great Doctor Who historical adventure.But, I must warn you, this isn t real history, but the kind of history that shows up in the TV episodes They get the general stuff right and then just do whatever they want to the rest to make a good story.There s lots of mistaken identity including Vikki doing the girl dressing like a young boy bit intrigue, fun humorous bits and some great historical guest stars.A lot of the historical Who books try so hard to be accurate and realistic that it sucks some [...]

    Another Gareth Roberts triumph the season 2 crew captured perfectly, a joyous level of farce worthy of Steven Moffat, a massive respect for the details of the historical period every way, a triumphant slice of William Hartnell 1st Doctor magic.
