Review: Doctor Who Wishing Well

10:30 AM

The old village well is just a curiosity - something to attract tourists intrigued by stories of lost treasure, or visitors just making a wish. Unless something alien and terrifying could be lurking inside the well? Something utterly monstrous that causes nothing but death and destruction?

But who knows the real truth about the well? Who wishes to unleash the hideous force it contains? What terrible consequences will follow the search for a legendary treasure hidden at the bottom

Doctor Who: Wishing Well by Trevor Baxendale

I was looking forward to this one but then when it started I thought this may not be good but then boom, it became good! I enjoyed the characters in this one more than the last few Doctor Who books; they just have that funny witt to them. I’ve always liked the idea of wishing wells and this story puts a whole new twist on what’s at the bottom of a wishing well.

The writing styles brings out the Doctors charm quite well; that is a must for me, in every review of a Doctor Who book I always make sure I say something about the Doctor. I’ve learned that I enjoy the older Doctor Who books then the new ones. The main plot seems to be based about treasure, well and what was at the bottom but I felt that is wasn’t that is was just a the front. I like how the two women are wanting to fix the well because its old and falling apart and I feel that it’s important to save history; small or big. I felt sad about the cat. All in all there was a lot going on in this book but it was easy to follow.
