Review by Homechicken
Doctor Who and Martha in the Wild West! They arrive and get caught up with aliens trying to capture a "healer", a man that goes around curing diseases with his "special elixir", but the Doctor knows better. The bounty hunters have several run-ins with the Doctor and Martha, and they barely escape. Typical Doctor Who, not a bad read.
Review by -Eva-
The Doctor and Martha go to experience the Wild West and end up battling aliens (what else?) disguised as humans instead. It's the first Doctor Who novel I've read and it's basically like reading an episode, except you have to do all the CGI in your head. Swallow is successful in making both the Doctor and Martha sound like they do on TV. Some of the quips, which Tennant is such a master of, sound a little too flippant in the text version, but as a whole it works very well.
