A lost opportunity

A poor effort this one! The reuse of the Foamasi was good but the rest was uninteresting - the wedding stuff just rubbish.

A welcome return

"Placebo Effect" is not by any means a great Doctor Who book, but it is far from being a bad one.The Eighth Doctor, who didn't get his fare run on television, is well represented here and the return of the Wirrn is a welcome one. Lets hope that they are a race that will return to our screens in the next series.

A pleasant little read

This book was a pleasing read. The Doctor is treated like a proper individual. Sam is realising she's growing up, instead of just being able to fall back into the old Doctor/Sam routine. And the Foamasi get a better plot than The Leisure Hive.

Read it!

A good plot is spoiled here by bad writing, the ideas behind it are excellent but it ends up being a struggle to read through.
