    1 thought on “Doctor Who: Happy Endings

    1. Oh, I'm sorry-not-sorry, all the "flaws" people find in this novel are, to me, a vital part of the joy of it. It's self-referential, full of in jokes, shamelessly jocular, and just a frankly roaring load of fun! This, as the 50th NA, is exactly like a NuWho Xmas special - FUN!

    2. I'm sorry. I tried, I really tried. The first half of this novel is fun and light. The second half of the book involved me wishing for something less light and more fun; in short, it seemed to consist of a number of secondary characters from past Virgin New Adventures getting drunk and making gratuitous appearances.This is what "The Name of the Doctor" would have been if they stretched that awesome sequence at the beginning over 40 minutes; or, more specifically, this is what that episode would [...]

    3. Rather than take a big shit on this story, which seems a popular thing to do, I'm going to give it credit for what it is. It is an anniversary celebration. And if you don't think Doctor Who goes over the top and gets self-referential in Anniversary stories, well, you either must be new here or you're really thick. Cornell managed to weave in characters and loose ends from 49 other friggin books, send off a companion and still, STILL bang out a solid story while working in some silly in-jokes. Du [...]

    4. nwhytevejournal/2238154ml[return][return]Happy Endings was the 50th New Adventure overall, and the 41st with Benny. It's a rave-up celebration of the series so far: Bernice is marrying Jason in the village of Cheldon Bonniface, and many characters from previous Who stories, particularly the New Adventures, turn up either as guests or as potential spoilers. Paul Cornell is always great when expressing his love for Who (or indeed other things that he loves) and this is awfully good fun, particular [...]

    5. If you can stomach a Dr. Who story that revels in it's own silliness, is amazingly self-referential, funny in a sitcom kind of way, and focuses on the annoying Bernice & Jason Kane, you may find this the bee's knees.But great Dr. Who this isn't.Still, beloved characters return. It is amusing at bits. Everything there is to love and hate about the New Adventures series is here between two covers.For: die-hard fans and collectors.Not For: people who like good Doctor Who or who haven't followed [...]

    6. A very unusual novel — as it's about the New Adventures continuity, not about plot — but ultimately an enjoyable one at least if you've read and enjoyed the New Adventures.The best elements of the book are the attention paid to certain characters (particularly Ace) and the closing of loose ends from the series. The worst are the lack of much anything happening but as long as you're an NA fan you'll like it anyway.

    7. An anniversary team-up book of ridiculously wonderful proportions. The plot is best ignoredenjoy this for what it is: one of "Doctor Who's" most pleasant literary love-in's. Sherlock Holmes gets a few choice moments, but the party chapter written by committee could disappear without harming the novel.
