BBC Books After the Movie came out the BBC decided that it would not continue its license with Virgin publishing and so in began publishing two lines of books that followed similar formats to the Virgin Missing and New Adventures.
There's also very little characterization of just about anyone. The book's only saving grace is that five-eighths of the way through the adventure there's a big time jump and then things get a fair amount more exciting. But, this one is more like 2.

Not all Doctors are tall, certainly not the first 2 ones, definitely not Seven. Eight is on par with First, a bit sub-average. No shame in that. But why would you call him tall - now, th Stream of consciousness review: Well, reading this book was a bit of a battle. But why would you call him tall - now, this is something that started probably already in the first book, but I liked that one a lot, so this niggle only comes up now.

Why did I find Sam more annoying in this book than previously? Her characterisation hasn't changed much, I don't think, but towards the end I found myself hoping she wouldn't make it out of this alive. This novel was trying to perhaps be too many things at once: a neo-noir thriller, a sci-fi, a Who book - and a werewolf book. And for me it didn't gel very well. Hoping for the quality to pick up further down the line of this series.
I love Eight, so I'll keep on going. View 2 comments. Nov 05, Samuel Rooke rated it it was ok Shelves: books-read-in Following up Alien Bodies was always going to be a monumental task.

The story to this could have been quite enjoyable so long as you try not to expect it to be anything more than a Doctor Who story about werewolves. I mean, werewolves.

Come on, right? How much can you expect, really? But anyway, some serious writing glitches just took me completely out of it. First off, there were some really confusing transitions. The setting or situation would just change very suddenly without much to mark it and I would find myself rereading trying to sort it. Secondly, there The story to this could have been quite enjoyable so long as you try not to expect it to be anything more than a Doctor Who story about werewolves.
Secondly, there are a lot of terribly incongruous conversations in this book. Like Sam suddenly discussing her daddy issues with a virtual stranger in the middle of a planning session for a terrorist cell. Or the Doctor and Cockpaine having a slow, calm, casual conversation over a massive bomb that they need defuse when they don't even know how much time they have. Or, when the Doctor and Kijitzl are having another casual, lighthearted conversation while trying to elude a bunch of wolves.

For some reason the author seemed to want to do all his character building in the middle of action scenes and important moments. There were some other issues too like why would you set a massive bomb to blow up an excavation site and then set it to go off like a day later and then leave it unattended.
And finally, when they're going to all this trouble to cover up and deny the existence of the Jax in the first place and go so far as to blow up their sites, how the hell and why the hell do they have history exhibits about the Jax 15 years later? There's a whole lot of sloppiness dragging down a story that was probably destined for mediocrity to begin with.

After the trainwreck that was Alien Bodies, this was a wonderful change of pace. Kursaal is an unfortunate-named book -- the name is the planet-sized themepark being built during the majority of the novel -- but the story was quite fun. Kursaal introduces a Monster of the Week straight out of Earth mythology; and I for one am quite pleased to see werewolves added to the Doctor Who mythos.
And as appropriate for a story about good horror movie fare, the body count is quite high. I admit, I have re After the trainwreck that was Alien Bodies, this was a wonderful change of pace. I admit, I have read few horror novels, so I am sure that no true fan of the genre would consider this a member, but for a Doctor Who novel I feel it does a good job of nodding to said genre. There's little I can really say about this novel without having to click the Hide Review button for spoilers, but suffice it to say the whole thing was a fun ride.
No pun intended. Apr 08, Nicholas Whyte rated it it was ok. But if you like Doctor Who and you like werewolf stories you'll probably like this one.
Aug 11, Michael rated it really liked it Shelves: review , doctor-who. Fairly enjoyable romp that somehow manages to maintain a dark and dangerous mood alongside the usual frivolous antics of this Doctor. Security chief Kadijk almost steals the show and Sam isn't quite as annoying as usual. The Jax are an interesting stab at putting a new slant on the old werewolf legend. I'm still waiting for a truly outstanding Eighth Doctor tale in this range and Kursaal isn't it but it's better than much of the competition to date.
