Doctor Who: Engines of War by George Mann ~ Review

Doctor Who: Engines of WarMy Review:

I think that most people know about my serious addiction to Doctor Who, so this review should be no surprise. To be honest I've never read a Doctor Who novelization, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but this book definitely lived up to my high hopes.

This book follows the War Doctor, who is only really seen in the 50th Anniversary Special, and it was fun seeing him get an adventure and companion all his own. I felt that the author did a terrific job with the story, telling a tale of hope and sacrifice, amidst the turmoil of the terrible Time War.

It expands more on the character of the War Doctor, as well as building on the setting and what it was like for Timelords during the Time War, when others feared and despised them.

Cinder is a wonderful companion, who is trained to be a skilled Dalek hunter. She and the Doctor get along well, and honestly it's sad that this story isn't a TV episode, because it is rather well written with a great, and surprisingly poignant ending. I think this would make a fantastic bonus episode.

Overall, a great one to check out if you are a Who fan and curious about what adventures the War Doctor might have had :)
