Bat-sh*t crazy in a wonderful way. After the first part, was a bit unsure if I was going to like it, but the cliffhanger, not a traditional one, a bit of standard dialogue and then the closing theme. All of the episodes are like this and you want to continue so that you know whats going on.
Thoroughly enjoying this run of 8th Doctor stories, please don't disappoint Divergent Arc!

A nice little return to the horror aspects of the Hinchcliffe era, however this story is hilarious, the moments such as the Doctor's pety argument with K9, Romana understanding Earth culture and the judge, jury and executioner species in the second half. The best in the Key To Time season thus far :)

Oh the Bodysnatchers, a book i’ve wanted to read for years, and finally after tracking it down and finally having the time to finish it, and I was a little underwhelmed. The setting is fine, but I think i’m just tired of stories taking place in the Victorian era; I haven’t listened to Big Finish’s Jago and Litefoot series yet (aside from Mahogony Murders) so i’m yet to see the hype for that time and place in the Whoniverse.


The Zygon aspect of the book is pretty good, the plan is the same as ever; they want to take over the Earth because there planet was destroyed, but like Terror of the Zygons, we have distinct individual Zygons, not just a standard monster that applies to the whole of the species. A few good twists in terms of allies revealing they are Zygons, and a few moments of individual ideologies peaking through causing conflict between characters. Very satisfied with this aspect of the novel. Another character I did enjoy was Litefoot, the professor returns to help the Doctor in another adventure which i’m sure must contradict Big Finish canon because Jago isn’t anywhere around and it has been 5 years since Talons. I just explain these into two different realities, Big Finish and Book timeline that eventually intercept and become one again around the New Series :P


However, where this story lacks is the motivation. For the first 100 pages, I was finding myself reading around 1-2 chapters a week, and a book should entice me more to read it more than that. The first half and last 50 pages or so is rather boring in my opinion, the resolution doesn’t feel forced but it is a bit weird, its a bit hard to explain.

And lastly, Sam. My word she is starting to get on my nerves; she constantly compares herself to any other woman significant to the plot and is jealous of the Doctor’s attention towards her. In Vampire Science is was Caroline, and in this it was Emmeline. And then she states she wants to be the Doctor’s equal. Really not liking this development of her character, and hope she doesn’t continue down this path.
Overall 6/10

Next Time (eventually): Genocide

As everyone under the sun said, this didn't need to be 4 hours long :P Still a lot of great fun though, Charley is quickly becoming a favourite companion of mine. Both McGann and Fisher steal the show as both 8/Zagreus and Charley. Nic Courtney is also a standout to. Sets up a whole new setting/sandbox for the Doctor to play in, which I hear is quite divisive, but can't wait to jump into. It has a elements that I think Moffat took and translated to the screen for Day Of the Doctor, mainly, the interface that helps a main character based on a previous companion. Thoroughly enjoyed and very much looking forward to the Divergent Arc.
