    One thought on “Doctor Who: The Infinity Race”

    1. Falling off the last cliffhanger, the TARDIS crew finds themselves stuck in an apparently parallel universe with a toy boat of sorts sitting on the console. It's a message it seems from Sabbath. Or maybe it's a trap! But the Doctor narrows his eyes and says with steely resolve, "Let's ensure that his plan stays . . . underwater."Cue opening credits!Okay, maybe it doesn't happen quite like that. But we do slip into the new arc with a renewed sense of panic, with Sabbath perhaps victorious and a n [...]

    2. Simon Messingham referred to himself as the Doctor Who book range’s most indifferently received author. That’s a very self-effacing description from a very accomplished writer, but it’s apt since, unlike the other stalwarts of the series, he doesn’t have a distinct style so no-one quite knows what to expect from one of his books. That disunity – from his own books as well as from the range as a whole – can sometimes mean an individual book will fall down a little, however strong the [...]

    3. The Eighth Doctor continues his adventures in The Infinity Race along with companions, the ever scrowling but Doctor believing Anji and the rash and brave Fitz. This book takes the trio in a parallel universe altogether set into motion by events of the previous book (which I haven't read yet). Pursuing a clue left by the devious Sabbath, the Doctor and his companions end up on a planet called Selonart, where a yacht race of epic proportions is on-going. But as mysterious events start to plague t [...]

    4. This is a mostly great book. The story is fascinating and - unlike many other EDAs - doesn't let the science get in the way; Simon Messingham isn't out to awe us with his erudition and book larnin' like some Who-authors, there is exactly as much science as the plot needs. The world-building is excellent. There are beautiful descriptions of the ocean-world, Selonart. The original characters were well-rounded, believable; they have a life beyond supporting the plot and team-TARDIS. I completely fe [...]

    5. I loved the story, but I got kind of annoyed by the story-telling. Fitz and Anji were more relatable and likable than usual, but seeing the story through their eyes still felt . . . limited. I would've liked to see more from the Doctor's point of view--especially what was going through his head in the first confrontation with Sabbath. I have a lot of questions about that scene. The Doctor is really starting to scare me a little. I think it's kind of fantastic if they're doing that on purpose. Sa [...]

    6. A boat race on a vast ocean world hides some nasty surprises for the Doctor and company. A little breather before the Sabbath arc kicks back into high gear, this is a lot of fun.

    7. Really starts to feel epic now this storyline - a ship riding though space, Sabbath pursuing the Doctor
