He is excellent with his interpretation of all the different marvelous characters that were so magnificently written.

From the surface of this world, the nearest sun was visible only as a distant blue glow on the horizon. The planet existed in perpetual dusk. the dark boundaries of the universe. The debris of men impatient to be gone littered the dusty surface: empty, prefabricated buildings, corroded machinery, plastic components brittle with neglect. The computers lay dormant, their purpose lost in shadowy, offline sleep.

Books related to Doctor Who: Prisoner of the Daleks. THIS is the best DW novel ever written either from the old series or new. It is not for children, in my opinion as there is a fair amount of torture done to the Doctor which may upset younger readers. Doctor Who: Silhouette (12th Doctor novel). The Daleks who seem more like over grown pepper pots with a whisk and plunger on the screen really come to life here and are truly terrifying. A fantastic story with a wonderful ending and exciting all the way through.

What an excellent read! I have read many DW novels but this is by far the best. Not only are the Daleks truly terrifying in this, much more so than they were ever portrayed in video, what is done to the Doctor almost had me in tears (and this from a 50 year old fangirl!) Ten is my doctor and to see him suffer at the hands (plungers and whisks) of the Daleks was almost too much to bear. A very complicated novel in that there is a lot of characters, many losses and truly graphic scenario's. It is the one DW book I would not hesitate to reread and that is saying a lot. You won't be sorry if you get this, believe me! PS I am now listening to the audible version of the book just to hear Briggs read it. He is excellent with his interpretation of all the different marvelous characters that were so magnificently written. When you finish reading the book listen to it. Utterly fantastic!!!

Postscript

I have now reread this twice and re-listened to it again and still love it, maybe even more so now. This should be required reading for every Whovian or on the fence, might be Whovians out there. You don't merely read (or listen) to this book so as devour it!

I am a huuuuuge Doctor Who fan, and my favorite Doctor is definitely David Tennant's Doctor. That being said, if you are not already a Doctor Who fan, this book is probably not for you. You will be totally lost, because it references episodes in the series fairly frequently.

The only thing that would have made this book better is one of his "companions" (preferably Donna since she's my favorite), but alas, he makes this journey alone. But, in true Doctor style, he makes plenty of friends along the way, and there are some pretty cool characters in this novel. Keep an eye out for Koral. She's pretty hard core.

I love the Daleks, evil though they may be. I thought this book gave us some fascinating insight into how the Daleks strategize and how their society works. This book also pulls in some ethical and humanitarian commentary about war and human (or humanoid?) rights, which I can always appreciate.

I certainly recommend this book to Doctor Who and Dalek fans.

From the very first chapter the Doctor was thrown off course (so to speak) and from that moment onwards he was pulled or thrust into one helpless situation to another. Throughout the book I was constantly wondering "What next? What else could go wrong?" and "How's he gonna get out of this one?" I currently have over 35 Dr Who books in my Kindle's library...yet this is my first review. This one was a whopper! Some of these story lines are rather predictable. Not this one. Well, maybe after you read this...

*** WARNING!! *** Very mild SPOILERS!!
The tale begins when the Doctor finds himself taken back into the Daleks history, at a time shortly before a great war between Humans & Daleks goes head to head. Finding himself trapped & rescued by the not altogether friendly, neighbourhood Dalek catchers, the Doctor soon finds himself in a situation beyond his control. And there's many more to follow.

The Doctor remains in the company of these Dalek hunters (who are still undefined as friend or foe) as he embarks on the latest solo adventure - confronting the ugly face of war, discovering the latest Dalek attempt to wipe humans from *time* (hint, hint) & space and then staying alive long enough to save humanity, preferably in time for tea and crumpets.

This is a tale of an abandoned TARDIS, deception, ambush, death, bluffs, war crimes/torture, uneasy truces, uncertain allies, plots to take over space & time...and of course, running.. This was one of the closest shaves the Doctor has encountered in my time - loved every moment of it.

The Doctor, after the TARDIS has a little problem navigating, finds himself with a group of Bounty Hunters. Bounty Hunters who hunt Daleks. Oh joy! At first they are being chased by the Daleks but then turn the tables, capturing one of them.
But the Daleks are not so easy to deal with. And they have plans of their own. Soon the Bounty Hunters are being hunted again. Can the Doctor stop the Daleks? Should he help the Bounty Hunters who seem just as ruthless as the Daleks? Ethical questions mixed with tons of action and, of course, cool Daleks.
The author knows the Daleks and you can tell loved them enough to do a good job in making the story with them as the main characters. Next to the Doctor of course. As always with the Daleks their plans deal with destroying all life, taking over the universe and, oh yes, taking out their number one enemy.
Buy it, read it, review it.

This is the first Doctor Who novel I've read so I don't have the others to which I can compare this one. I can't say that it's a brilliant work of fiction or that I'm in a hurry to reread it, but that's not why I bought it. I gave it five because it was as good as can be expected of a novel from a TV series. It's entertaining and definitely a page-turner; I completed it in just two sittings. Equally important (at least to me) was that the Doctor and the Dalek's characters were spot-on. Nothing takes you out of a story like thinking "He'd never do that!" and this book did a good job. I didn't purchase expecting great literature. I expected entertainment and a classic Doctor Who adventure, and I was very satisfied. Looking forward to expanding my collection.
