Doctor Who: the Drosten's Curse : A Novel

Hotel receptionist Bryony is worried. She's stuck in a dead-end job at the Fetch Brothers Golf Spa and Hotel, her boss keeps stealing her cookies, and now golfers are disappearing from one of the sand traps. Just as our heroine wonders if she'll ever get her life together, a new guest appears: a remarkable guest, with the hair of a madman, rather too many teeth, and kind but slightly alarming eyes. The Doctor has arrived, and soon Bryony is off to save the world from a telepathic entity burrowed under the sleepy confines of Arbroath, Scotland. Kennedy, an award-winning writer of literary fiction (All the Rage; The Blue Book), has taken on the Who-verse and her depiction of the Fourth Doctor (as played by actor Tom Baker) is spot-on. By turns funny, charming, and scary, her novel also catches the humanism that underpins the series; she shows why people love the Doctor and all he stands for. Verdict A joy for fans, but readers new to Doctor Who television or who only know the reboot will also find this a fun and easy entry into one this most enduring TV character.-Devon Thomas, Chelsea, MI Â© Copyright 2015.
