    One thought on “Doctor Who: Dead of Winter”

    1. Within the range of Doctor Who novels, this one's fantastic. Told through letters from the supporting cast and Amy Pond's memories, it details the arrival of the TARDIS crew at a mysterious clinic in 1783, where some very strange methods are being used to cure the patients.While the story itself is fairly straightforward, the writing style allows for some extra twists and surprises. It also gives us some great insight into the characters' minds, and their thoughts and feelings about one another. [...]

    2. Really not the best Doctor Who novel ever written. It did get marginally better about 100 pages in once a very obvious plot twist was revealed, but only very slightly. Told from the view point of Rory, Amy and a couple of other disposable characters this book tells the story of a French clinic in the 18th century that seems to have developed a cure for TB about 100 years before people even really understand the disease. There were a number of twists in this book and everyone of them as transpare [...]

    3. This felt interminable. The setting was very promising: a crash finds Amy, Rory and the Doctor (although not quite themselves) at an ahead of its time European sanatorium in the 18th Century. Even in the 21st Century we still like to think of going to the seaside as a cure and the sea here is effecting miraculous improvements in the motley collection of guests/patients with TB. Even before anyone thought fresh air, rest and good food might help. Yes, there's something fishy going on! We've got a [...]

    4. This story is told through letters, journal entries and memories, so the point of view is continually changing. It took quite a lot of pages to get used to the narrative. Longer than it should have, I thought. Then about halfway through the book something is revealed that makes you want to go back and re-read the first half. Kudos to Goss for this twist, I just wish he could have delivered it in a more straightforward way.This was definitely a proper Doctor story. He is the reluctant hero, who a [...]

    5. At first I was really happy we get to see rorys perspective, but it just turns into this bitter hate for the doctor, and even a little bit for Amy. Like he just has such low self esteem that its really off-putting. Someone like Amy would never love someone that has self esteem as low as the rory written in this book. I know he's often overshadowed by the doctor on the show, and for a while it feels like their love is one sided, but he never questions it. When she has the transmitter in her hand [...]

    6. James Goss comes up trumps once again. After his fantastic "Torchwood" novels comes his first "Doctor Who" novelwhich is an absolute triumph of character. Goss captures the Doctor, Amy & Rory with astonishing precision & depth. The story is told in first person letters and remembrances, and the historical setting makes for a colourful backdrop, without being intrusive or too heavy. This is a dark, historical fairy taled I blazed through this book in three hours. A positive triumph.

    7. Honestly, a person doesn't read Doctor Who novels expecting much beyond a day or two of escapism. But Dead of Winter is unexpectedly better than that average, offering a burst of growth for the genre, while capturing the strange meta-consciousness of the Matt Smith-era scripts and translating it -- widely successfully -- into book form. Simply put, this is the kind of Doctor Who novel fans deserve to see more often.The form here is brilliant: first-person remembrances, epistolary passages, subtl [...]

    8. At first, I wanted to give this book two and a half starse beginning was a bit confusing and seemed to drag on much longer than it should until they revealed a plot twist which made me want to go back and re-read the first 100 pages. The way the chapters were set up (character point of view through diary entries and letters) seemed unrealistic as they recalled every detail to dialogue or inflection. the different style threw me off at first, but I shrugged it off and moved on. About halfway thro [...]

    9. I thought Doctor Who-Dead of winter was such a FANTASTIC book and I loved the ending how they all made up again, but I didn't really like it when Dr Bloom shot the Doctor in the forehead and just lied there on the sand of the beach. Amy Pond and Rory Williams(husband and wife, all lovey dovey) were sitting there crying as the Doctor died but luckily came back to life again. An 11-year-old girl called Maria always writing letters to her mother but Dr Bloom keeps them in his office to read. It say [...]

    10. This was the worst Doctor Who book I've ever read. The plot was boring; the audiobook reader wasn't very good; the villain was kind of deus ex machina; the monsters weren't scary and were kind of just "weird" (in a bad way); the writing style wasn't the best (a poorly executed part-epistolary and part-multiple-narrator novel); and most importantly, the characterizations of the trio (Amy, Rory, and the Doctor) were completely off (Amy came off as a whiny little tart who didn't really care about R [...]

    11. First off let me say that I have never like books told through "journal entries" so it was with some trepidation that I started this book after reading some of the reviews. This book did not change my opinion of stories told in this way. The book was slow to start and seemed to be there purely for the plot twist that was obvious from a mile away. The biggest problem I had was one this style of story all shares, Dull and very static. How can you foster a sense of danger or even of urgency if the [...]

    12. I really liked how this novel was set up, with each chapter either from Amy or Rory's point of view, or from letters from Maria or Mr. Nevil, or Dr. Bloom's journal. It made for more than a few surprises, some of which wouldn't have worked as well if it had been written in a more straightforward manner. However, those who dislike "head-hopping" should steer clear. The chapters are short and the action is pretty swift, so if you're not careful things could get confusing. And, of course, if you're [...]

    13. I bought the book almost a year ago but I never had the opportunity to read it. Recently, I found out that it will be republished for a DW History Collection that will gather all of the best DW novels set in the past. As a result, I decided to give the book a go.After reading the bookI can say that it is one of the best DW stories I've encountered, the book perfectly portrayed Smith's Doctor and Gillian's Amy Pond. The story was a perfect mystery that was capped with an explosive mind-bending pl [...]

    14. I really enjoyed this book! It was very captivating with great plot twists. My only complaints were that it could be a bit confusing at times, and that sometimes earlier on the characters (The Doctor, Amy, and Rory) didn't seem quiet like themselves. Four stars! I would definitely recommend this book to my Whovian friends

    15. I don't really enjoy the current rash of BBC Doctor Who novels as much as the ones that where present whilst the series was away from T.V. and I think the reason for that is they without a new audience when it was away the books and adventures grew up as the last 'who' generation did. such the books became harder hitting and adult at least in regard the complexities of plot.The current books though occasionally good enough do seem to be more gauged towards the wider appeal of young adult fiction [...]

    16. The spin-off of the adventures of the 12th doctor, as played by Matt Smith, allows readers to delve deeper into the minds of the Doctor, Amy, and Rory. We see and understand their motivations better. Author James Goss structures the novel as alternating letters and diary entries from the first-person perspective of various characters, including Amy, Rory, the Doctor, Maria, a nervous little girl, and Dr. Bloom, the proprietor of the TB clinic on the seashore where everything is not what it seems [...]

    17. J'ai hésité entre 2 et 3 étoiles, mais comme je viens de lire les 5 dernières pages, j'ai la bonne fin en tête alors, va pour 3.Si le sujet de cette aventure est bon, le style d'écriture, lui, est le plus gros obstacle à l'appréciation de ce livre.En effet, le lecteur ne se retrouve pas face à l'habituelle suite de chapitres mais à une succession de points de vue, ne faisant parfois qu'une page: une lettre postale, puis un souvenir, puis un récit classique, puis un extrait de journal [...]

    18. I found this possibly the most difficult book of the series to read so far. Having said this, it is ultimately rewarding with a sense of melancholy to round off a decent story. My only reservation is telling the story in a series of letters although this too is ultimately dealt with satisfactorily. I enjoyed it eventually and urge readers to stick with it. Far from the best volume since the return of the Doctor but worth a read.

    19. A good story with an interesting twistNot as exciting as some of the Doctor Who stories but worth the read for true fans. If you are brand new to whovian lore this may be more exciting.

    20. "Am schlimmsten Tag deines Lebens ruf nach dem Doktor." Eine geheimnisvolle Karte mit dieser Aufschrift ruft den Doktor und Clara zu der jungen Diana Winter. Sie hat eine Bitte. Der Docktor soll nach ihrer Katze suchen. Erst weigert sich der Doktor, doch dann bekommt er Mitleid mit dem armen Kind. Auf der Suche nach der Katze merken der Doktor und Clara, dass etwas ganz und gar nicht stimmt. Denn die Golhearns, eine außerirdische Lebensform, macht allen das Leben schwer.Aber erst etliche Jahre [...]

    21. I read this book mostly because I was out of reading materiel. I also figured that I do like Doctor Who so maybe I would enjoy it. I didn’t. I really didn’t.It’s written in multiple POVs. One of them is a little girl’s letters to her mother and another one is a man’s diary. The others are typical first-person. At first it’s just three, the little girl, the man, and Amy. Then randomly Rory is added in. Then there are some letters from another extremely minor character. Then the Doctor [...]

    22. (This review may contain spoilers).I did actually enjoy reading this book. I found it quick and entertaining to read and if it wasn't for the multiple switching between so many different first person POVs, this would probably be four stars.I did like the fact that it wasn't very clear what was going on with Amy, Rory and the Doctor. And it would have been interesting in regards to the confusion involving Rory and the Doctor but although I figured out what was going on fairly quickly, the writing [...]

    23. Inhalt:Durch eine mysteriöse Karte und einem verzweifelten Hilferuf, landen Doktor Who und seine Weggefährtin Clara auf einem weit entfernten Kolonialplaneten namens TARDIS, der zum Schutze der Menschheit in einer riesigen Kuppel erbaut wurde, auf Diana Winter. Sie bediente die alte Karte, die seit Jahrzehnten in Familienbesitzt ist. Ihr Hilferuf ist alles andere nach dem Geschmack von Doktor Who und dennoch lässt er sein Herz erweichen. Aber das Abenteuer soll nicht das Letzte sein bei dem s [...]

    24. Read this in honor of the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who, because Doctor Who is the best. This book seemingly combined some of my favorite all-time things - tuberculosis, The Doctor - but, as these books go, it basically reads like a rejected concept for a Who episode. The writing is not that stellar, though I did like the structure at first, it stopped making sense as the story went on - why would a little girl pause during a fog zombie alien invasion to write an extremely detailed letter to he [...]

    25. I have to admit that I loved the setting - 18th century,the Italian shore, France on the bring of revolution, consumption and so on. The atmosphere and story were brilliant but unfortunately I cannot say the same about the way that the Doctor and his companions were depicted. Everything about The Doctor was presented way too tragic and he seemed utterly sad all the time. Making impossible decisions is part of who the Doctor is - yes, it puts great weight on his shoulders but that doesn't mean th [...]

    26. This tome is a relatively dark and unsettling member of the world’s greatest science fiction franchise. The book opens with Amy, Rory and The Doctor enjoying each other’s company in the TARDIS when they lose control of it and it crashes. It soon becomes apparent that Amy was hurt the most but the trio find themselves in a hospital of sorts, in 18th century Italy. You would think that would be good news, but certain residents of the establishment soon convince the Doctor that the establishmen [...]

    27. Another surprisingly good one from James Goss.Let's start with the cover. It's very blue. Probably trying to go with the beachy/water theme this book entails. The people in the background rising from the sea who look like zombies to me aren't dressed in period clothing. You are probably thinking, Megan, how can you even tell? One man is wearing a top hat. I have a feeling top hats weren't around before the French Revolution. The girl on the cover is most likely either the character Maria, an 11 [...]

    28. Anche questo terzo romanzo del Dottore, portato in Italia da Asengard Edizioni, mi è piaciuto molto.Il TARDIS precipita nel 1783.Il Dottore, Amy e Rory si trovano in una clinica dove viene curata la consuzione. Tutto normale? Eh, no, perché la cura della consunzione (la tubercolosi) verrà trovata un centinaio di anni dopo.Perché i pazienti vengono lasciati su una spiaggia, in pieno inverno? Che cosa sono le figure misteriose che emergono dalla nebbia e danzano con loro?Il romanzo ha una stru [...]

    29. This book, I personally think captures the essence of medical past. With the in depth knowledge of tuberculosis weaved throughout the book is incredible-it truly shows the quality of Goss' writing to be able to teach while read. I was actually studying TB at the time of reading this book (what a coincidence?) and found it a joy to read as it encompassed my passion and love for Doctor Who into what I was studying.Don't panic though this is not a guide book in how not to get TB or consumption as i [...]
