More About the Author

Ben Aaronovitch was born in 1964. Discovering in his early twenties that he had precisely one talent, he took up screenwriting at which he was an overnight success. He wrote for Doctor Who, Casualty and the world's cheapest ever SF soap opera Jupiter Moon. He then wrote for Virgin's New Adventures until they pulped all his books.

Then Ben entered a dark time illuminated only by an episode of Dark Knight, a book for Big Finish and the highly acclaimed but not-very-well-paying Blake's 7 Audio dramas.

Trapped in a cycle of disappointment and despair Ben was eventually forced to support his expensive book habit by working for Waterstones as a bookseller. Ironically it was while shelving the works of others that Ben finally saw the light. He would write his own books, he would let prose into his heart and rejoice in the word. Henceforth, subsisting on nothing more than instant coffee and Japanese takeaway, Ben embarked on the epic personal journey that was to lead to Rivers of London (or Midnight Riot as it is known in the Americas).

Ben Aaronovitch currently resides in London and says that he will leave when they pry his city from his cold dead fingers.

The Doctor and Ace arrive on Earth in 1963, where the Doctor has unfinished business - left over from his stay in Shoreditch with his granddaughter Susan. He is setting a trap for the Daleks - but why are there more than one group of Daleks on 1960s Earth?
A great new start to the Seventh Doctor's second season sees the Doctor becoming far more complex and assured, and uses the English army and its scientific advisers to get to what he wants. But the two Dalek factions are rather more than he bargained for, and there are several more complicated factors in the story.
Ben Aaronovitch wrote this fabulous story for TV, and betters it with the novelisation. He expands considerably on the original story, establishing some elements that survived considerably beyond the book, and making a very readable addition to the Doctor Who range of books.
This is also the best Dalek story for a long time, and should be appreciated. Certainly worth you going out of your way to find!

As with most things written, this novelization of the Remembrance of the Daleks is far better than the TV episode. Insights into Dalek culture, thinking and even language, the "historical comments" on the Daleks, and the flashbacks into main characters lives really bring this book to life. Omega, Rassilon, Davros; they're all here. I bought it when it was first released and have read it many times. A must have for any Who or Scifi fan.

When a author turns some episodes into a novel a lot of the time they skip some details, smooth the plot out and make the characters feel like they're made out of wood. This is a GOOD Doctor Who novelization. The author added background details and really helped clear stuff up and support the action scenes. A must for any Doctor Who library, used or new. Nice cover too, really helps the reader picture the major characters.

Format: Paperback
This has got to be the best Dr Who book I have ever read. It is very well written and provides a fascinating insight into the way Daleks think. It also is very interesting to see the 1960's british army fighting them. The Doctor is typically mysterious while showing a number of his other character traits and a side of him not often seen. Ace makes a great companion for him. The Daleks are after the "Hand of Omega". Stick around for the ending because it is excellent. 5 stars!
