I 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 always looked 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 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 no limit to special effects or 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 the line 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 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 Lords losing 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 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 ideas and is clearly than a little in love with its own intelligence And that for the most part is great as the book is intelligent and I appreciate the witty little gags there just to show off its cleverness But it seems to me that Miles loses control of these ideas So many are introduced and they are piled so high that it becomes frustrating when the whole thing starts to topple over and various ideas are just left scattered on the floor And at that point the cleverness in tone of the book becomes a hindrance as clearly it s not as clever as it thinks it isThe Doctor finds himself at an auction in the South Pacific with various shady emissaries The lot they re bidding on is The Doctor s own dead body Whichever way you look at it that s a hell of a good set up For the most part it deliver on the promise of that opening and I was thrilled reading it Ultimately though as entertaining as it is the book just slips away from the author

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 eventually leads into a dark but awesome confrontational moment of The Doctor and ixotl never seen or witnessed the Doctor especially the 8th incarnation so pissed off Besides The Faction Paradox and The Shift we have a very surprising villain here I think originally it was suppose to be The Daleks as referenced but perhaps War of the Daleks made the change who knows Again that s for the reader to find out I wouldn t of guessed them ever being in a book like this Alien Bodies as we all know it starts off a lot of plot strands events and arcs in the EDA range1 The Faction Paradox The Grandfather Paradox As discussed in the loose preuel Christmas on a Rational Planet2 The War in Heaven arc 3 The Celestis4 The Shift it s employers5 The Enemyand some other small stuff but that s the big juicy stuff to focus on Id give Alien Bodies a 9510 It s exposition galore and does rely on it to move it forward and I expected this to go down that path to establish certain things and set things up for the progressionof the range Next is Kursaal and would appreciate something light after the heavy arc set up novel but awesome book none the less which is Alien Bodies easily one of the best Doctor Who books I ve read
