    1. Mad Dogs and Englishmen makes an interesting double bill of a Doctor Who novels with Imperial Moon They re completely and totally different in tone, but both are riffing on literary models of science fiction and fantasy Imperial Moon takes on a far boy s own early science fiction adventure, while Mad Dogs and Englishmen as befits arch post modernist, Paul Magrs gives us skewed versions on J.R.R Tolkien and C.S Lewis a novel about fusty middle aged men in gowns having rich fantasy lives, even as [...]


    2. Convoluted, not terribly funny book from that period where it was considered modern and clever to either add depth to the Doctor and his companions by portraying them as really screwed up or by writing stories that were so absurd and surreal that the make the Yellow Submarine movie look normal and straightforward.The evil poodles were mildly amusing as was the big reveal about the mastermind behind this, but it was mostly a mess.


    3. Enjoyable book that contrasts pretty strongly with the previous in the series Ultimately a bit of a comedy throwaway that has rather a lot of death and the Doctor doesn t actually accomplish anything, just seems to witness events.


    4. A convoluted plot with rather a lot of characters representing several different goals Mostly sorted out by time travel, that s why.


    5. The problem with Doctor Who novels is the same as with a lot of franchise based stuff you never know what you will get And not all of them are good Funnily enough though when they actually are good they sometimes are quite excellent The literary medium allows authors to play with things in their stories that would never have been able in a low budget TV series even though they tried, oh god, how they tried.Mad Dogs and Englishmen starts with The Doctor number 8 , Fitz, and Anji arriving in a hot [...]


    6. This was a strange choice for a book to celebrate 100 BBC Doctor Who novels with Light, fluffy and pink a rare case of the front cover truly reflecting the contents it s something of a sidestep for the range Those hoping to see the strands of the preceding The Adventuress of Henrietta Street picked up and developed would have been and indeed were, as I recall hugely disappointed And the reappearance of Iris Wildthyme this isn t really a spoiler, surely seemed to undermine the previous novel s st [...]


    7. The 100th BBC Doctor Who Novel features a homage to the other novels involving the eight doctor and his companions and past adventures.History has gone awry and it appears to have been caused by a Tolkein like author having been influenced by a Crowley esque popular lurid fiction writer helping pervert his epic fantasy of elves and faeries and the like into the tale of the rise and fall of the queen of the poodles that rules over a planet of talking dogs that evolved functional hands.There s not [...]


    8. nwhytevejournal 2267978ml return return This was hilarious A group of Cambridge academics calling themselves the Smudgelings listen to each others writings, including the annoying Cleavis who lives with his younger brother and Reg Tyler, author of that great classic The True History of Planets, with its epic tales of elves and trolls running about the place with nothing on their hairy feet But the Doctor gets involved via a visit to a planet ruled by dogs sinister forces have intervened with Pro [...]


    9. I mean it kind of sustains itself solely on its own ridiculousness, but if you re the sort of person who would look at the cover, which is hot pink and features a dog with human hands, and think Wow, I have to read this Doctor Who book about dogs with hands, then you should probably read this It is definitely a Doctor Who book about evil time traveling sentient poodles with human hands That is an accurate description of this book Also Noel Coward is in it a lot I didn t know who he was and that [...]


    10. Dude, how can one not love a book featuring revolutionary poodles and a time travelling Noel Coward It s so insane, I just sat there going Oh, you didn t Oh Oh you did 3 And, weirdly, it all makes sense, and if the the denouement felt a little rushed, that was pretty much lampshaded by Coward actually, nearly everyone was incredibly Genre Savvy in it, which I like Also, it contains the immortal exchange You know of such things We are poodles, Doctor Of course we know of such things And the cover [...]


    11. The cover is just the start of what may continue to be the most oulandish outrageous Doctor Who novel of all time Never mind the antics of animated vending machines that Magrs plays with in Sick Building where else are you likely to find the Doctor and friends battling evil talking dogs Where else will you find Noel Coward in the middle of it Best to simply experience it and try to scoop up off the floor your melted yet entertained brain cells after you have finished the book.


    12. Cute The sense of humor is very much like Douglas Adams or P G Wodehouse, and the plotline is utterly absurd appropriate for both the sense of humor and for the protagonist In fact, it was so absurd that I still had no clue what was going on halfway through the book There were alternate timelines and parallel timelines in multiple different years, and it was all properly timey wimey and confusing.


    13. You know, I m still not entirely sure what I read here As I wasn t when I first read it years ago I do, however, know that I just read something It s fun, funny, clever, and foolish It s impossible not to like this, even though you wouldn t by any means want all of your Doctor Who this way Garbled, garrulous, garish and yet, genuinely genius.


    14. This book is as mad as its cover Revolutionary alien poodles attempt to achieve domination through meddling with the plot of a LOTR expy and pop songs Includes a time travelling Noel Coward The real amazing thing about this book isn t its absolute madness, but the fact that it manages to deliver a pretty solid story in the end.A fun, but absolute bonkers romp.


    15. Utterly bonkers from start to finish, but then I never expect anything less from Magrs From poodles with hands, to a time travelling Noel Coward and a bunch of weird and wonderful surprises in between.An absolute riot, well worth a read.


    16. This book was a bad joke The entire book The only reason I gave it two stars is because the author seemed to agree with me It s like he didn t even try I mean, any book in which someone literally has to shout HEY I THINK WE VE REACHED THE DENOUEMENT is probably just not very good.


    17. You need to be a clever author to write a book this light A witty literary romp that targets JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, George Lucas and Noel Coward Dogworld is a funny creation and the regulars are well used A good way to celebrate 100 Doctor Who novels.



    18. Quite confusing, but ultimately satisfying Eighth Doctor Adventure.Poodles with ray guns, Noel Coward, a twisted version of Lord of the Rings, and 60 s Vegas.



    19. A bizarre Eighth Doctor novel the pink cover with a gun wielding poodle represents it well , but it s also quite entertaining Also has added appeal if you get some of the cultural references
