    1. I heard from a friend that this novel was simply amazing and he recommended I go out and experience it and so I did. I have to say that I’m not massively fond of proper hard line science fiction stories but I chose to give this one a chance. I’m so glad I did! This story sees the introduction of two VNA companions, Roz Forrester and Chris Cwej and reading their first story was a joyful experience. I was unsure wether or not I was going to like the characters but now I can safely say I think [...]

    2. Introducing two new companions22 February 2012 I read this book namely because it was the book that introduced two new companions to Doctor Who, Chris and Roz, and the problem with series like this is that it can be hard to read them in order. When I was reading this I tended to jump back and forth between the books, which made it difficult to see any real continuity (and to know anything about the companions). However, most of the action in most of the books were pretty self contained. While I [...]

    3. This is my new favourite Doctor Who book, surpassing even Human Nature and Just War (which are both phenomenal). The combination of Benny and the Seventh Doctor is perfect (just now realizing how little screen time they shared in the other New Adventures I've read) and even though I'd already read books featuring Chris and Roz (from jumping around the series instead of reading them in publication order) it was great to finally see their introduction. Some nice callbacks to Classic Who (without i [...]

    4. I tend to be a bit very when Doctor Who does hard SciFi stuff. Not necessarily because I don't think that these two things don't mix very well from the outset, it's more because the writers tend to become overtly serious when they're telling such type of stories, thus making them somewhat dry and exhausting to follow. (Ben Aaranovitch's "Transit" comes to mind. Or Tom Baker's last season on TV.) "Original Sin" occasionally falls into the same trap, but in this case I didn't mind so much because [...]

    5. nwhytevejournal/2069151ml[return][return]Andy Lane has rarely disappointed me, and this New Adventure, introducing new companions Roz Forrester and Chris Cwej, is up to his usual standards, with lots of good ideas - mollusc-like aliens resenting their recent defeat by humanity; a peculiar radiation that induces homicidal psychosis in its victims; a richly imagined array of settings, including a bootleg medical centre in the former church of St James Garlickhythe; and the rather glorious return o [...]

    6. the "original sin" that the title refers to, i think, is that of white people building lives on top of brown people. that said: this is the best doctor who novel i've read to this date. there are a lot of throwback references to 60s and 70s who (admitted, sometimes they're inane and fucking drive me crazy, but this is to be expected). ITS GOT A ROLLIN PLOT THATLL KEEP YA GUESSIN TILL TJE END, alright. i am not pretending this book is something it's not. it is perfectly suited for airports and th [...]

    7. New Adventure (NA) with Benny, Roz and Chris. Interesting, well-depicted, and the characters are well-realised, but little actually happens (which makes the characters look useless) and a huge number of things contradict each other (i.e. every time you have a grasp of something, the opposite happens). I'm a lot smarter than the author, which is really annoying. There is far too much filler. Seems to move slower and slower as the reader comes to realisations an increasing number of pages earlier [...]

    8. A book that manages to take the less-than-stellar depiction of life in the 30th century (as seen in the 1972 story "The Mutants") and flesh it out with considerable detail, drama, and humour. It's a great introduction to two new companions, and it's one hell of a surprise sequelspecifically, the LAST characterg you'd ever except to feature in a Doctor Who sequel!

    9. A good "trad" novel. The high point is the detailing of an interesting point in Earth's future history. The introduction of new companions is also well done, as is the detailing of a new alient race.
