Hi folks! Just dropping in quickly to plug my poll of "Doctor Who" book readers:

I just finished reading White Darkness earlier today, you know, the somewhat underrated first novel by David A McIntee and came away pleasantly surprised. Especially considering I've yet to finish a single book by him. Ever. I was somewhat disappointed by the lack of zombies and a bit irked by Bond fan McIntee's attempts to go all Live and Let Die on us in places, but I did enjoy it even if it hardly set my world alight.

At the moment I'm waiting for my latest ebay acquisitions of Blood Heat and Conundrum to arrive so I can actually begin to properly read the angst-fest that is the Future History Cycle and actually make sense of No Future. Either way, it'll be good to reread The Left Handed Hummingbird considering how I skimmed through it on my first reading, something I don't think it really deserves.

Looks like I get the first post.

I recently re-read Human Nature. It's good - right up until the end, anyway. I didn't realise it first time round, but the ending on this reading seemed so...abrupt. The Doctor and Benny just leave. The immediate plot is dealt with very nicely, but once the dust settles (so to speak), the book is something like six pages from the end and there's no pay-off for what's come before.

I know this probably sounds vague, I'm trying to describe it without spoilers. Anyone else have similar thoughts?
