A Doctor Who novel featuring the Tenth Doctor and Martha, in which our heroes wander into a tiny English village looking for a spot of tea and end up having to deal with an alien monster that lives under the town's historic wishing well.

This one was... okay. The first hundred pages or so, honestly, were pretty dull. Way too many of them seemed to consist largely of people standing around talking about how great this well is and what a wonderful tourist attraction it's going to make, and, come on, guys. It's a well. Minus the monster, it's really just not that interesting. And there's a lot of focus on the guest characters, who also aren't quite as interesting as the author thinks they are, either, but who are, y'know. Okay.

We do get a decent bit of mild creepiness, though, when the Doctor finally gets himself down that well (which you know he's going to). And the confrontations with the monster towards the end have some fun or slightly dramatic moments, in ways that do feel much like an episode of the show, only maybe with better special effects on the page than we might have gotten on screen.

Still, none of it is particularly memorable or anything. If it was an episode of the show, I suspect it wouldn't be one I'd bother re-watching much, although it wouldn't be one I'd go off and complain about on the internet, either. ( )

Ten and Martha are in the picturesque English village of Creighton Mere in quest of a cream tea with scones and jam and clotted cream. They don’t find a tea room, but they do find a classic wishing well… one that is inhabited by a monster!

This was a pretty good story. The scary bits were properly scary, which I liked — good “YEARGH!” value. The writing was OK but nothing special. I’d still recommend this novel if you like Ten and Martha, though. ( )

The Doctor and Martha come across a village with an old wishing well, but instead of being a curiosity for tourists, the well hosts a terrifying monster. This is one of the better Who-books I've read because the story is very easy to visualize being a regular episode and both the Doctor and Martha sound like the characters they are on the show. Its a very quick and entertaining read for Whovians, but I wouldn't really recommend this to someone who hasn't already seen the show - books like these are mainly advanced fan-fiction after all. ( )

I keep hoping one of these days, there will be good tie in fiction to sustain me between series of the show. This is not it. Bland, predictable, and stiff, I put it down repeatedly. Only finished because I wanted to get a couple extra books into August. Blah. ( )

I listened to the audiobook of Wishing Well, which did not work for me at all. The plot of the story was standard fare for a Doctor Who episode, so I didn’t have any issues with it. However, the narrator of the audiobook was a woman, and hearing her speak the voice of David Tennant’s Doctor just seemed wrong.

I won’t be listening to any more of the Doctor Who books in the audio format in the future, because I’m too attached to how the characters sound in the TV show. I will give them another chance in book form though someday.

As for a rating, it is difficult to give one for the story because the whole experience was colored by my dislike of the narrator’s voice, so I’m giving it a middle of the road “3.” ( )
