Iate predecessor in the EDAs John Peel s ill regarded War Of The Daleks Both books make strong use of the show s then 35 year continuity with references from it sprinkled throughout interludes between Anthology of Articles on African Linguistics and Literature large chunks of the narrative andarge cast of characters Miles manages to do all of that and he does it successfully than Peel Why Because unlike Peel he doesn t become a slave to continuity and is also than capable of poking fun at the same time that he s rehabilitating a much maligned monster His interludes are connected to the main story helping to fill in chunks of what got the characters to where they are at the novel s beginning rather than be inconseuential cutaways just to bring in a random piece of continuity While I would argue that Peel did well with his characters in War of The Daleks the ones that Miles presents feel tangible real possibly because they re not all Thal soldiers or DaleksIt also helps that Miles has a wonderful writing style His prose flows rather nicely and he handles the ever shifting tone of the narrative deftly as he goes from serious revelations those cliffhanger moments of the classic series to Douglas Adams style moments of whimsy to explosions and character moments without the narrative ever getting The Writing Workshop lost This is also the book that introduced Faction Paradox and the aforementioned war in the Time Lords future against the Enemy that would come to dominate much of the range for years to come It s easy to see this book as being to the EDAs what I think Paul Cornell s Timewyrm Revelation was for the New Adventures where they really began For all that and for so much Alien Bodies might be the best Doctor Who book you ve never read Now I m sure the majority of you reading this review have read it but for fans such as myself who came in after the party that was the Wilderness Years had given way to the New Series it s a book that we might never get the chance to read It s certainly the kind of book that we re unlikely to ever see Doctor Who produce again So if you can find it and can afford it once you have get it Chess games spanning decades andifetimes an auction for a mysterious body and TARDIS models disguised as humans I oved it The Eighth Doctor s first meeting with the time travelling voodoo cult known as Faction Paradox what could you possibly ask for I read this circa 2002 and have to say that this book was the catalyst for not only getting me back into classic Doctor Who but also getting me hooked on the continuing adventures of the Paul McGann Doctor through the EDA range of novels So much so that I now count the Paul McGann Doctor as one of my favourites even though his screen time was imited to one outing the much maligned American TV movie It was such a shame that he wasn t given of an opportunity to flesh out the role via a TV series but on the flipside due to the Big Finish Audios and the EDA novel range the Eighth Doctor has been given a distinct voice that very much makes him a part of Doctor Who *CanonDefinitely One Of My EDA S *one of my favourite EDA s to any Doctor Who fans as a good starting point for getting on board with Paul McGann s DoctorVery much overdue for a reread of this one as well A startling reminder that before he was a ranting man on the internet Lawrence Miles wrote startlingly good Doctor Who You can see why a man might be bitter though when he came up in the space of this one book with the Time War a human female TARDIS and a story in which the Doctor s corpse is the starting pointBut then some of the stuff he doesn t Distant Echoes Finding Keys To Life After Abuse like is here too For all that he complains about Moffat s overuse of the Doctor s reputation as a weapon in itself or the tendency to upgrade the Doctor into an all round superhero this is the story of the great powers of the galaxy and someess celebrated parties trying to get on to that How Debuggers Work Algorithms Data Structures and Architecture level gathering to bid on a relic of great and unspecified powers That relic beingthe corpse of a future Doctor whose adventures in the meantime haveeft his biodata even valuable than it already was Who even in death can mess with events And so forth In other words this is excellent So s the new series They re clearly the same Doctor Who whatever anyone might say to the contrary Why can t people just get along Doctor Who EDA Books 6 Alien BodiesClearly the best EDA Book out of the six I ve read so far in the EDA marathon reading It got better and better as the book progressed pages 1100 810 pages 101200 910 pages 201313 1010The plot is very simple collective powers around the universe come together for an auction We see Humans Timelords The Faction Paradox and some other interesting faces come into the scene Get a bit of Daleks Master Plan vibes of different collective powers all meeting but for a completely different reason To place a bid for the relic What the item or artifact is well that s for the reader of course ixotl is the one setting it up and him and the Doctor have an interesting historyI would say out of every single Doctor Who book I ve read this is the best put together Dr Who novel I ve read It does rely on heavy exposition to move the characters storiesintentions along but I don t see it as a bad thing at all I enjoyed hearing their parts Some complain about it I don t know why it was executed very well to bridge the cliffhanger sections Similar to War of the Daleks interludes but done SO MUCH BETTER here I was thinking Nightshade is potentially in trouble of being knocked off the thrown as my all time favourite Doctor Who novel short answer no it didn t Nightshade is still No1 But damn isn t this novel fucking amazing My favourite part I d say is when everybody found out about the Doctor s identity in the auction and everybody turned and freaked out causing complete anarchy and chaos this. To be the deadliest weapon ever createdWhen the Doctor and Sam arrive in the city the Time Lord soon realises they've walked into the middle of the strangest auction in history and what's on sale to the highest bi. I An Alien Heat ll be honest I used to sneer at spin off books of TV showsfilms Whether they be Doctor Who or Stark Trek or Star Wars or The Dukes of Hazzard or The A Team I ve alwaysooked at the spin off books as hack work There for some author to churn out uickly and make a uick buck while the franchise it s The Alchemy of Culture: Intoxicants in Society linked to was still popular I am realising though as I get older and wiser there are writers who are truly inspired to do great work in the fictional universes they inherit Writers who aren t just content with churning something out but writing excellent books that just happen to be based in pre existing universes In science fiction that s doubly true as in novels there is noimit to special effects or Rough Rider: BWWM Interracial MC Biker Alpha Male Romance locations any panorama is open any place is time or space is possible That s why I ve finally decided to explore the Doctor Who novels and maybe even Star Trek and Star Wars somewhere down theine It s a chance for further adventures a chance of brand new worlds I am opening my mind people Although if I m honest I Sonic Alchemy: Visionary Music Producers and Their Maverick Recordings ll probably still steer clear of any Dukes of Hazzard or A Team spin off novels I findIt s easy to see why Lawrence Miles s Alien Bodies is so well regarded in Doctor Who circles Clearly its influence stretches far into the new series We have The Doctor himself as a fetish object who is feared and hunted by the rest of the universe The Pandorica Opens we have the Doctor s bodily remains being a power unto themselves The Name of the Doctor we have a character falling out of a window and into the Tardis which is parked on the side of the building The Day of the Moon and in the character of Sam a girl whose timelines have been manipulated to put her in front of The Doctor we surely have Amy Pond That s before we get to the bits about The Time Lordsosing a war to a race who are similarly time active It s all in this book and even though Lawrence Miles has never written for it and indeed holds a Mapping wild gardens: The symbolic conquest of South Africa (African literatures in English) large grudge against it Alien Bodies gives a much deeper understanding to Nu WhoSo how good is Alien Bodies Well it s a mix of gothic fantasy science fiction and Douglas Adams with its own pixyish charm There are characters who do blood rights whilst wearing skull masks there are spaces constructed entirely in mathematics and there are jokes that Adams would have been proud of for example the authors of the various reference books uoted It s a book which stacks ideas on top of Where oh where to beginWell for one thing why was I not informed that this book is absolutely hilarious I think it was suggested that it was rather witty but I think that understates the case somewhat this is a side splittingly funny novel uite reminiscent of Douglas Adams with it s wheeler dealers in outer space and it s Raston Cybernetic Lapdancers But also reminded me of Robert Anton Wilson s Schrodinger s Cat Trilogy particularly theayers of conspiracy and the bizarre Bureaucracy of UNISYC Over all though however much it may remind me of other SF humor is definitively a Who story A glorious waltz through three decades continuity and in jokes Not the Gramatica de baza a limbii romane leaden clunky ponderous mess of The Eight Doctors Nor the forced cobbled together trite of War of the Daleks but aoving commemoration of so m So many elements of this story now feature heavily in NuWho especially Matts era Looking back at that gap between televised Doctor Who that Suggestive Inuiry into the Hermetic Mystery with a Dissertation on the More Celebrated of the Alchemical Philosophers Being an Attempt Towards the Recovery of the Ancient Experiment of Nature listed between December 1989 and March 2005 it is sometimes hard for me to understand how it could be called the Wilderness Years There was one book after another virtually every month Big Finish audios coming out monthly from 2000 a new issue of Doctor Who Magazine coming out every month and so forth Then again I came into Doctor Who in 2007 when the New Series had established itself and the Wilderness Years were well and truly over That time period though produced some extraordinary and influential tales including this 1997 novel from Lawrence Miles a book I ve spent years trying to track down at an affordable price and one that I ve finally managed to read atastThose readers familiar with the New Series especially its Most Recent Seasons Under recent seasons under Moffat will College University Budgeting: College And University Budgeting likely find themselves experiencing a bit of deja vu There s the idea of a war in the Time Lords future the Doctor encountering his own future dead body a companion whose revealed to have multi timeines or sets of bio data as its referenced to here and a seuence early in the novel where someone jumps into the TARDIS as it sits parked on the side of the building to name just a few examples Anyone even vaguely familiar with the New Series will see the influences on The Last Great Time War that has dominated much of its back story as well as the influences on several Moffat stories including Impossible AstronautDay Of The Moon and Name Of The Doctor especially There s to it than that thoughAlien Bodies also features pre echoes of the New Series in style as well There s the way for example that Miles reinvents one of the most maligned monsters of the old series echoes some of the successful reintroductions of recent years Also while Miles is writing for the eighth Doctor and certainly captures Paul McGann s Doctor his dialogue especially echoes that of Matt Smith s Doctor Indeed once one moves past the prologue it feels Integrating Cleveland Baseball like a New Series two parter expanded upon to fit the novel s page count with theast scene of the novel easily being a final scene with some voiceover and a Murray Gold score on top *Of In The End Then I Can T Help But *In the end then I can t help but that for all Miles rails on his blog against the New Series in this one novel he invented so much of it in the space of 313 pagesMoving on from its influences on the New Series Alien Bodies is just a damn good book In a way it s interesting to compare Alien Bodies with its immed.
