A Review - Nothing O'Clock

I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars.

The Blurb: 

Thousands of years ago, Time Lords built a Prison for the Kin. They made it utterly impregnable and unreachable. As long as Time Lords existed, the Kin would be trapped forever and the universe would be safe. They had planned for everything… everything, that is, other than the Time War and the fall of Gallifrey. Now the Kin are free again and there’s only one Time Lord left in the universe who can stop them!

Author Neil Gaiman puts his own unique spin on the Doctor's amazing adventures through time and space in the eleventh and final story in the bestselling 50th anniversary series!

This eBook short is an amusing triumph for Gaiman, Doctor, and Reader!

What can I say about this bite sized adventure without sounding like I'm a gushing fan boy?

It's beautifully succinct and well told. What more can you really ask for from a 45 page genre fiction short?

Not a single word was wasted, anything added would have been too much. Gaiman has proven his worth yet again, and succeeded in giving us a tale of the Doctor that aches for the screen. Clearly he should pen more episodes of the series - and for what that's worth, give us more Doctor Who shorts like this one.

I can happily recommend this to fans of Gaiman, fans of Doctor Who, or any reader who wants a well told bite-size work of science fiction.
