Alien Bodies Characters Ë PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free On an island in the East Indies in a lost city buried deep in the heart of the rainforest agents of the most formidable powers in the galaxy are gathering They have been invited there to bid for what could turn out. Looking back at that gap between televised Doctor Who that 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 at lastThose readers familiar with the New Series especially its most recent seasons under Steven Moffat will 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 time lines 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 like a New Series two parter expanded upon to fit the novel s page count with the last 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 feel 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 immediate 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 large chunks of the narrative and large 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 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
