Descrição do produto

"I've had many faces. Many lives. I don't admit to all of them. There's one life I've tried very hard to forget-the Doctor who fought in the Time War."

     The Great Time War has raged for centuries, ravaging the universe. The Daleks and the Time Lords deploy ever more dangerous weapons in desperate attempts at victory, but there is no end in sight.
     On the outer rim of the Tantalus Eye, scores of human colony planets are now overrun by Dalek occupation forces. A weary, angry Doctor leads a flotilla of Battle TARDISes against the Dalek stronghold but in the midst of the carnage, the Doctor's TARDIS crashes to a planet below: Moldox.
     As the Doctor is trapped in an apocalyptic landscape, Dalek patrols roam amongst the wreckage, rounding up the remaining civilians. But why haven't the Daleks simply killed the humans?
     Searching for answers, the Doctor meets 'Cinder', a young Dalek hunter. Their struggles to discover the Dalek plan take them from the ruins of Moldox to the halls of Gallifrey and set in chain events that will change everything. And everyone.

Para quem acompanha a série é uma ótima leitura. Os personagens são bem apresentados, e a narrativa cumpre o que promete: mostrar o lado do Doctor pouco conhecido.

4.0 de 5 estrelas The Doctor No More 10 de setembro de 2014
Por Daniel McCollum - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
Actually, that title isn't accurate at all. I think what surprises me most about the portrayal of the War Doctor in this novel is just how Doctor like he really is. Angry, tired and more prone to violence than his previous incarnations, yes, but still the Doctor at heart. For some reason I kept imagining him as a jaded, exhausted Fourth or Fifth Doctor, if that makes any sense. (Oddly enough, despite being a warrior st heart, the War Doctor continues the tradition of many of his predecessors by not actually using guns)

I enjoyed this novel, finishing it in less than a day. If certainly isn't a hard read, but it's fun and engaging. The story itself reminded me of a darker take on some of the classic stories, and I appreciated how it acted as a bridge of sorts between Classic and Nu Who tales in tone and structure. The author certainly knows his history of the show, and it was nice to see his acknowledgement of stories such as the Five Doctors with the work.

My only complaint is that the War Doctor, for as much of a warrior as he was purported to be, still comes off a bit ... nicer than I would have expected. It is hinted at, in the story, that the presence of Cinder awakens a bit of the Doctor's old spirit (and we all know what happens when the Doctor travels alone!) which explains some of his more mellow moments. However, it would have been nice to see more of the War Doctor's fierce side.

For any fan of Dr. Who, this is a must own. I only hope that this isn't the last we see of the War Doctor. I would love to see more of his adventures during the Last Great Time War.

5.0 de 5 estrelas A great story for fans of the new series and old 9 de setembro de 2014
Por C R Swanson - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
Ever since the War Doctor (or the Other Doctor, or the Predator, or the Renegade, or whatever we want to call him), was introduced last year, fans have been wondering just who he is. What was this man like, who seemed so similar to the Doctor we know and love, yet apparently was very, very different? Now we get a glimpse at what this man was all about.

The story starts off on a distant planet, where a young woman, nicknamed Cinder, is fighting back against the Daleks. The rebellion isn't going well, and she's about to be killed by one of the Daleks, when the Doctor's TARDIS crash-lands and saves her. From that point, Cinder and the Doctor travel together, trying to unearth the secrets of a new Dalek weapon and save...well, therein lies the conflict. For the Doctor can save the Time Lords, but in doing so would be allowing them to commit a great crime. His moral dilemma forms the crux of the story.

I very much enjoyed this tale. It helps that I'm very fond of the old series, so I recognized many of the references ("The Five Doctors" in particular is heavily referenced), but I suspect even new series fans who have never seen an episode of the old series will be able to keep up just fine. I also appreciated the connections between the new series and old. Having an appearance by a certain Lord President of dubious character was quite fun, especially as he's still wearing a glove I like to refer to as "The Hand of Omega", but probably isn't.

As for drawbacks, well, there really weren't any, aside from the fact that I was left wanting more. This story is clearly supposed to be the War Doctor's last adventure before the events we saw in "The Day of the Doctor", and so I do hope someone at some point goes back and fills in more blanks. It would be lovely if Big Finish were able to do so, but failing that, more novels would be great.

A good story all around and one that I highly recommend.

5.0 de 5 estrelas The Time War Tale We've Been Waiting For 27 de setembro de 2014
Por Matthew Kresal - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
Since its revival in 2005, much attention has been focused on the Time War, a conflict between the Daleks and the Time Lords that has formed much of the back-story of the New Series. As time has passed, the series has given us references to events and things associated with the Time War and, in the cases of 2010's End Of Time Part Two and last year's fiftieth anniversary special The Day Of The Doctor, glimpses of the war itself and the Doctor who fought it. Following quickly on the heels of the most recent glimpse of the war and the introduction of John Hurt's War Doctor comes Engines Of War, a novel by George Mann that promises on its back-cover “An epic novel of the Great Time War featuring the War Doctor, as played by John Hurt.” But does it deliver?

Given the limited amount of screen time that Hurt's War Doctor had last year, one of the difficulties of writing a Time War story would seem to be capturing that Doctor. Yet Mann does exactly that here, extrapolating from Hurt's performance who this Doctor is and just what he's capable of doing from killing an incubation chamber full of Dalek mutants to defying the Time Lords (and just strangling one of them as well). Yet for all of that, there's hints of the man he used to be in here as well and most especially in his interactions with Cinder, who effectively becomes his companion for the novel's duration and whom he admits to having with him “To remind me of who I'm not,” at one point. The icing on the cake though might be the dialogue where Mann leaves the reader hearing Hurt's delivery in their mind's ear as it were. Like writers did nearly twenty years ago with Paul McGann, Mann takes Hurt's limited screen time and uses it to create a whole tale based around him.

Along with his capturing of Hurt's War Doctor, Mann is also successful in taking many of the references made to the Time War throughout the New Series' now eight year run and working them into the story. We're presented with the Skaro Degradations (first referenced in the aforementioned End Of Time Part Two) within the first chapter and from there were presented with looks at both the Time Lords and Daleks alike ranging from Rassilon and the High Council to the Dalek's Eternity Circle. In particular, and with just a handful of scenes in the middle of the novel, Mann captures the Timothy Dalton incarnation of Rassilon and offers some details as to how the founder of Time Lord society came to be resurrected. As well as building on the Time War references of the New Series, fans of Old Series stories set on Gallifrey will likely pick on references and appearances by characters from at least a couple of those stories including a surprise appearance by one Time Lord character in particular. Combined with references to events stretching across the Time War and its effect on the universe of large, the novel presents the most complete picture (albeit in prose) of the Time War fans have yet had.

Above all else, The novel shows us the events that led this Doctor to the point we saw him at in Day Of The Doctor. Early on in the novel, we're given confirmation that this the older Doctor we saw in that special though he certainly proves himself more than capable of action. The fact that it's set at that point is key as the events of the novel provide the bridge from the warrior to the old, bitter, perhaps even depressed man we meet in the special who has decided that there's no other choice but to use The Moment. While the fact that we're not given a bigger picture of the Time War might come as a bit of a disappointment for some, Mann more than makes up for any disappointment through the references mentioned above and with an action packed tale that shows us the width and breath of the Time War across time and space and its effect on this incarnation of the Doctor.

So does Engines Of War live up to its promise? The answer, thanks to the perfect capturing of Hurt's War Doctor and the action packed plot, is a most definite yes. This is the Time War tale that fans have been waiting for since 2005 and a must read for Doctor Who fans.
5.0 de 5 estrelas One of the best Doctor Who novels ever 7 de março de 2017
Por MoserGray - Publicada na Amazon.com

Doctor Who: Engines of War is without a doubt one of the very best Doctor Who novels I ever read. Featuring The War Doctor, we follow him on his adventure during the Time War, where he discovers that the Daleks have created a super weapon that will no doubt end the war in their favor. Unfortunately, the war has made his fellow Time Lords almost as malevolent as The Daleks, and it's up to The War Doctor to set things right.

This book is very well written and focuses largely on The War Doctor. It quickly goes by and seldom drags, the brisk nature of this book will easily keep your interest. We also have little Easter eggs for long time fans as nods to earlier stories such as "The Five Doctors", "The Invasion of Time", and "Day of The Doctor" can be found.

I can not recommend this book enough. Even if you're not a fan of the new series, this book will satisfy.

5.0 de 5 estrelas A great adventure for the War Doctor that will make you want to read more 30 de março de 2016
Por Rocky Sunico - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
The Great Time War wages on and countless worlds and race are caught in the crossfire between the Time Lords and the Daleks. One such world is Moldox, where Cinder is a young woman who is part of the human resistance on the Dalek-overrun planet. She's out on patrol together with Finch and they encounter a Dalek patrol that also includes Skaro Degradations - more Dalek soldiers that have been created through experimental mutating techniques and such. Cinder is able to take out a few Daleks with her salvaged Dalek weapon, but sadly Finch is killed in the process. Beyond that, it seems Cinder is no longer able to remember Finch at all.

Meanwhile the War Doctor leads a daring attack against Dalek forces near the Tantalus Eye. At first things seem to go well, but once again the Daleks manage to turn things around due to sheer numbers and the War Doctor narrowly escapes with his life. He crashlands on Moldox where he first encounters Cinder and ends up saving her life. Now the two end up working together to find out what the Daleks are doing on Moldox and hopefully warn the Time Lords of the dangers they face before it's too late.

The Great Time War is such a dark period in Time Lord history and somewhat personally for the Doctor as well. The TV show has made a lot of references to the Time War time and time again and this book presents one of the rare glimpses of how the war was. And Mann does quite a stellar job of painting this rather dark picture of what has been going on all this time. More and more it seems it's hard to tell the Time Lords apart from the Daleks given the wanton destruction both sides end up causing in exchange for small victories here and there.

The War Doctor is a grim character, one who has been shaped by the War and one who bears the burden of many hard decisions made over the year. But in the presence of Cinder as his sort of Companion in this adventure, we eventually see glimpses of the impish Doctor that we know and love. That Doctor is still alive somewhere deep inside the War Doctor, and thus the book nicely illustrates how Companions like Cinder and all the others do a lot to keep the Doctor grounded and hopeful. Without directly saying so, the book sort of tells us that a lot of what makes the Doctor so optimistic is the very nature of humanity as well.

And once again, we are made to fall in love with a Companion rather quickly in the person of Cinder. She's yet another hard person, certainly traumatized by the rigors of life under Dalek oppression. In that way she's very much like the War Doctor - totally committed to her goals. But underneath the surface she is still a hopeful young woman, one whose childhood was taken from her and yet could still potentially be unlocked and celebrated in its own way. And the two work amazingly well together and the experience of being together helps unlock something in both of them.

The entire story that drives this book is brilliant and quite scary at times. We see just how far the Daleks are willing to go to achieve their goals and their master plan to finally defeat the Time Lords is quite the significant one indeed. And of course the other greatest risk to the Time Lords is actually the Time Lords themselves. As lead by Rassilon, supposedly the greatest of all Time Lords, we see that he's a scarily ruthless individual who is open to authorizing just about any use of force or exotic technologies in order to win the war.

I really enjoyed this book and how it helped flesh out a period of Doctor Who lore that has largely remained a mystery. It's not a happy time, but it's certainly an important time and seeing what happened here helps better explain the War Doctor we met in the 50th anniversary special.

Doctor Who: Engines of War is a great addition to the sort of expanded universe around the Doctor Who series and a must-read for those curious about the War Doctor. Plus it's a great Dalek book that doesn't have them engaged in some silly plan but instead are very well poised to take over all of time and space itself
