Book Description

The TARDIS brings the Doctor and Martha to Balmoral in 1902. Here they meet Captain Harry Carruthers - friend of the new king, Edward VII. Together they head for the castle to see the king - only to find that Balmoral Castle is gone, leaving just a hole in the ground. The Doctor realises it is the work of the Judoon - a race of ruthless intergalactic mercenary space police.



While Martha and Carruthers seek answers in London, the Doctor finds himself in what should be the most deserted place on Earth - and he is not alone.



With help from Arthur Conan Doyle, the Doctor and his friends discover a plot to take over the world. With time running out, who will fall victim to the revenge of the Judoon?



Featuring the tenth Doctor and Martha as played by David Tennant and Freema Agyeman in the acclaimed hit Doctor Who series from BBC Television.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captures the Tenth Doctor brilliantly! Molto Bene! January 16, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
I have been reading and generally enjoying these Doctor Who books finally available on Kindle. Although this one is short, it is most assuredly sweet. This book features the best characterization of and dialogue for the Tenth Doctor I have yet seen. Martha shines through as well, as do the supporting characters. It's lively and vibrant and in every way true to David Tennant and Russell T. Davies. Read it!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read for the money February 13, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While reading this little book I couldn't help but remember the Target range of "Doctor Who" novelizations. I was fortunate in high school that my school library had several of them and I remember reading and enjoying them all. I also remember the names of several of the authors including one Terrance Dicks (of course the fact that I just recently finished rewatching "The War Games", which he wrote, helps with that memory). Dicks is now back in the Whoniverse with this bite-sized (though perhaps on the Kindle, byte-sized?), novella.

The plot centers around the Judoon returning to Earth in the early 20th century. They steal Balmoral Castle and move it to the Empty Quarter in Saudi Arabia. Why they did this is not clear, but the Doctor and Martha are determined to find out!

The book does a good job of capturing the flavor of the new series, missing only one of the Doctor's many "yay, humanity!" pep-talks. But otherwise all the standards are there and the book does show that Dicks still knows how to weave a good story.

I do rather wish the story had been longer, and from the ending I'm betting it was a setup for further stories that have yet to materialize. But that's ok. Even just this novella is a good thing to have!

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrance Dicks July 21, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you were a Target reader in the 80s, you will have no trouble quickly falling in love with Terrance's simple, yet to-the-point Doctor Who story telling in "Revenge of the Jadoon." Not only did it completely feel like a new story for the new series, it had the feeling of the long-ago novelizations he would do for the classic series. This is a recomended light reading for the DW fan in your house.

Definitely a quick read, but the plot points resolved a bit too quickly and easily. Overall still enjoyable, but not one of my personal favorites.

It was not the most exciting but it was most definitely a quick read. I thought it captured the doctor and Martha from the show very well. But could have been longer.
