The peace and quiet of a remote homestead in the 1880s American West is shattered by the arrival of two shadowy outriders searching for “the healer.” When the farmer refuses to help them, they raze the house to the ground using guns that shoot bolts of energy instead of bullets …

In the town of Redwater, the Doctor and Martha learn of a snake-oil salesman whose patent medicines actually cure his patients. But when the Doctor and Martha investigate, they discover the truth is stranger, and far more dangerous. Caught between the law of the gun and the deadly plans of intergalactic mercenaries, the Doctor and Martha are about to discover just how wild the West can become …

Featuring the Doctor and Martha as played by David Tennant and Freema Agyeman in the hit series from BBC Television, Peacemaker is read by Will Thorp, who played Toby Zed in the TV episodes “The Impossible Planet” and “The Satan Pit.”

    " Very good, and you don't have to know anything about doctor who to enjoy it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacquelyn | 2/12/2014

    " Although this book was better than "The Pirate Loop", I still think that the Doctor Who books are for people who LOVE Doctor Who, but might not like reading books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 2/12/2014

    " One of the stars of the new Who books, I think. Not quite as brilliant as 'The Resurrection Casket' but darned close. It's not often we get to see the Doctor in the Wild West, where the law of the gun ruled. For you Firefly fans out there, pay close attention to the writer's dialogue! It's obvious he's a Whedon fan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 2/8/2014

    " The story starts off a bit slow, but towards the end you're really moving at a sprint! I think the thing I liked about it was the classic interaction between the Doctor and Martha, and how she can help pull the Doctor out of the sticky spots he gets himself into. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Azar | 1/31/2014

    " Better than The Last Dodo but not quite as good, IMO, as Wetworld. There were some good moments, but for most of the story the characters just felt...slightly off to me. Not enough so that I can tell you *why*, unfortunately. Just a difference of interpretation, I guess. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David Orphal | 1/31/2014

    " Super fun adventure in the old West. I could really see Tennant's Dr. and Martha Jones in the dialogue. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Crazy | 1/15/2014

    " it was a great dr.who west story for me it was a nice story line and a creative alien. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 12/9/2013

    " One of the nicer Companion!Martha Jones books, I really enjoyed this. The Wild West aspect was cool and entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kennedy | 11/16/2013

    " Perhaps the best out of the New Who books, it just gets a little bit silly towards the end - but then, don't most of them? If you want to be selective about which books to buy from the series, this is one to get. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 megan | 8/13/2013

    " usually i hate westerns but his was a really good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 7/26/2013

    " Fun read that was faithful to the characters of the series. It was amusing to read descriptions to have the Doctor behaves. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet | 7/25/2013

    " I found this to be a quick and enjoyable read. Although it seems rather similar to the recent "A Town Called Mercy" episode. I wonder if the show borrowed the idea from the book. "

    " A western adventure, Who style. Stetsons were cool for the Tenth Doctor as well. "

    " Typical Doctor Who jaunt... I do like the concept of the Clades (though I'm sure it's not a new one). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim Dunn | 11/1/2011

    " So many Doctor Who books (and I have all the new ones)....a written review is unnecessary for them all. "

    " A good, solid story, though a bit of a deus-ex-machina in the end. Still convincing. "
