An archaeological dig in 1936 unearths relics of another time... And - as the Doctor, Amy and Rory realise - another place. Another planet. But if Enola Porter, noted adventuress, has really found evidence of an alien civilization, how come she isn't famous? Added to that, since Amy's been travelling with him for a while, why does she think the Doctor is from Mars? As the ancient spaceship reactivates, the Doctor discovers that nothing and no-one can be trusted. The things that seem most real could actually be literal fabrications - and very deadly indeed. Who can the Doctor believe when no one is what they seem? And how can he defeat an enemy who can bend matter itself?

    " The story isn't the greatest ever told but by no means is it the worst either. So it quite nicely kept me occupied for a couple of days. The last Doctor Who book I'd read was 'The Coming of the Terraphiles' which was just plain diabolical so after that stain on the Whoniverse it was nice to read a book that actually made sense and can quite easily fit into the canon of the TV show. Whilst the story was not the strongest ever written the characters were very akin to the ones in the TV show and thus made it easier to imagine the dialect and mannerisms the charcters were using as this story unravelled. Set during the events of series 5 of new Who (when Rory was only something of a cast extra) this book gave some more insight into him and it was nice to read a little into the reasons why he continued his life with the Doctor and Amy and it was also nice for him to be given the limelight for a while and actually made some good contributions to this plot rather than just being a spare part. "

    " I'm not entirely sure why I keep picking up the Doctor Who novels as even for children's book they're not of the highest standards... Still, of all of the DW books I've read so far this was one of the better ones. The story doesn't just mimic some of the characteristics of the characters we know and love (which is the easy way out so many of the other DW novels seem to be taking) but the actual story itself had more of a DW feel to it as well. "

    " Slow going at first. The doctor and friends didn't even show until chapter 4! But...that said...it had lots of fun wooly Things...which...since I am knitter, was pretty cool. "

    " Great wibbly-wobbly story, if a very abrupt ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily Preston | 1/3/2014

    " I've read a few of the Doctor Who tie-in novels, and this one is one of the best. It shows another side of Rory and has a really interesting plot. Definitely recommended to anyone who likes Doctor Who :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chaz Barnum | 12/27/2013

    " If you want to know more about Rory, and how it feels to be Rory, this book is the book for you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosemary | 12/24/2013

    " A typically fun Doctor Who yarn. (Pun intended, but you'll have to read the book to get it - Hah!) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 12/6/2013

    " The Tardis crew land in 1936 where wool like aliens are trying to escape some other aliens. Rory shines in this book, and is given a lot to do. His compassionate side does come to the fore. The characters were more interesting than the plot in this one. A good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becca | 11/30/2013

    " Best thing about it was a Lilo and Stitch reference. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alyssa Greatbanks | 9/23/2013

    " A good book as always, lots of mystery, twists and turns. Keeps you hooked until the last word. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 9/17/2013

    " Fun, quick read. Plot was a bit muddled; twists were predictable, but the characters were spot on to the show and a lot of their interactions were fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Audrina | 8/18/2013

    " Good book. Straight forward plot but lacks that sudden mysterious twist. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chad | 7/21/2013

    " Waiting to get the next book in this wonderful amazing series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emmalee Miller | 5/18/2013

    " I loved this book. It's a nice complement to the series. It's wonderful to read these while waiting for the Christmas Special and the next season to air on television. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Justin Rees | 5/14/2013

    " An amazing novel, and once again Rory makes it shine! He plays the reluctant hero role perfectly and just makes a perfect foil to the Doctor and Amy. I think I like this one over the 'King's Dragon'. Definitely a must read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aira | 5/9/2013

    " I AM A WHOVIAN. SO YES, THIS IS DA SHIZZZZ "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rex Hughes | 3/21/2013

    " I love the eleventh doctor television stories, but "The Glamour Chase" was a bit drab and boring to be called a true "Doctor Who" adventure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel Kukwa | 2/3/2013

    " My favourite of the second, superior batch of 11th Doctor novels. Rory shines particularly well as heroic, compassionate companion AND hero of the hour. "

    " Another good little romp. Good characterization on Rory! Well done. "
