Comes across ur first person narrator Bec (The Demonata, on a future world where coffee is scarce and the two meet while waiting in line for some As a set up it s decent enough but even as a novella it feels like the Doctor s involvement is tangential at best Even given the at arm s length approach to the companions that Capaldi s Doctor has taken it still didn t uite feel right here The second half features a few attempted twists and turns that I m not sure work as well as they couldr shouldAll in all I came away from this entry feeling a bit disappointed I wonder if I d read it closer to the time that Black wrote it and instead The Further Mishaps of Charlie Chumpkins of having a dozen episodes to get to know this new Doctor if my feelings might have been different As it stands I have to call thisne f the lesser entries in Puffin s fferingsI received a digital ARC f this novella from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Enjoyable short story This is an additional short story to be part f the short stories written to celebrate the 50th Anniversary f Doctor Who where there were eleven stories then but now it s published another ne to include in the event to the current doctor the Twelfth WHO The DoctorThe Twelfth DoctorCompanion78351 aka Fifty One WHERE WHEN ICRS station deep space somewhere in the far future WHAT This is very likely a short story between Episode 1 Deep Breath and Episode 2 Into the Dalek from Series 8 Our Planet: Our Home of Doctor Who since the Twelfth Doctor went to the far future to a deep space station where it s processed the third best coffee in the universe mentioning that he is buying a cupf coffee to Clara something that it s mentioned at the end Kakoong, Pahlawan Pulau Awan Vol. 8 of the episode Deep BreathWhile there several mysterious deaths begin toccur always when the lights are ut so the Twelfth Doctor recruits a temporary companion to assist him in the investigation Actually the Doctor even say the word companion that I honestly think must be a first in Doctor Who s history78351 aka Fifty One is a companion created for this short story but it s interesting that Holly Black the author established that this character is already acuaintance about The Doctor from a previous adventure while in a previous regenerationThat previous adventure is also created for this short story that I think it was an ingenious trick since it was useful to speed up the interactions between The Doctor and Fifty One due the limitations f being a short storyIt s not clear which regeneration was the Journeys of Frodo: An Atlas of J.R.R.Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings one which Fifty One knew previously to The Doctor If you are so kind to indulge me in the brief exposuref my wn personal speculations due a particular comment in an advanced part f the story it could be easily the Third Doctor but even it could be most likely the Tenth Doctor but again the comment which lead me to these hypothesis they could be as well selected with double intention as easter eggs to imply some personal preference f the author for the Third Doctor andor even a nod to refer from where r most likely who the Twelfth Doctor took his current face The past is hard to utrun The short story is uite enjoyable with a fast tempo priceless humor cool scenarios and good character development and interaction between the Twelfth Doctor and his temporary companion I received this story from Netgalley for an honest reviewBlack just didn t get twelve s feel right I think could do ten r eleven better they are manic and she does manic well The mystery wasn t much and just not dd r creepy enough for it to mesh with the A Stepdaughter In Heat (Daddy Daughter Sex Stories) overall emotionsf season eight I just expect from Black and have a high expectations for a Doctor Who story with the writers f the show doing it so well My nly real complaint about this short story is that it was well short DI enjoyed Lights Out a lot it s a really nice little self contained story which fits right into the three missing weeks between Deep Breath and Into the Dalek in Series 8 In ther words this is the story that shows us what happened after Clara sent the Doctor ff to get coffee in Glasgow in the end In the End of Deep Breath and why and how the Doctor got so distracted henly turned up with the coffee three weeks later in London in the beginning f Into the DalekAnyway Yes This is a story f the Doctor going to buy.

Clara her coffee third best coffee in the universe n some little space station famous for its coffee because well it s Clara and let s be honest Twelve would do pretty much anything for Clara but The Early Girl Gets the Blood Wolf obviously he as usual also has an ulterior reason for choosing to visit that particular space station A murder mystery gets solved the Doctor gets to be the Doctor and that s pretty much itIften have problems with the pacing in short stories but with this Diary of a Library Nerd: An Erotic Diary of One Woman's Metamorphosis one I felt that was pretty much spotn the introduction wasn t The Stonemere Park Breast Essays: From The L.C.T.F. Archives overly long and the resolution wasn t crammed into a very short rushed bit in the end Also even though it would appear this is the Doctor nearly immediately after his regeneration he actually came across uite properly like the Twelfth Doctor we ve come to know during S8n the TV show especially when the story briefly touched Let the Wolf Howl on issuesf fear and morality not just a generic Doctor with fierce grey eyebrows and a billowing coat Holly Black was asked to write this story The Resistible Rise Of Benito Mussolini of the Twelfth Doctor before Series Eight had started and had to rely upon scripts with some parts redacted She chose to set this story in between Episodes One and Twof Season Eight and explains where the Doctor went for the coffee he presented to Clara Far in the future coffee is roasted at the Intergalactic Coffee Roasting Station ICRS pronounced ICARUS While there the Doctor turns detective when a series f murders ccurThis story did remind me Blue Guide New York of Charlie Higson s The Beastf Babylon and Holly herself said she had been inspired by that story Again no spoilers but this relates to the nature f the temporary companion The story is also dotted with alien species that have appeared throughout the classic and recent series At least those who would enjoy coffee Finding ut in retrospect that Holly Black had written this story without seeing Peter Capaldi in the role did explain a lot as I did not feel that she portrayed the Twelfth Doctor well On top Homesick of this I felt the story itself was rather lack lustre So while it was nice to have the collection roundedut this was disappointing All around me everything is light and bright And for the first time I can remember no part A Criminal Affair of me is afraidFirstf all I just want to start Sangue Derramado out by saying that I love the 12th Doctor His grumpiness and sassiness knows no bounds That being said I also love Holly Black So what better combination than a Holly Black novella featuring the 12th DoctorI really loved this story It was fast paced and interesting and uniue and despite it s short length I felt like the story did a great job in keeping the Doctor in characterI just wish it was longer I hated to see it end I read the first elevenf this series f Doctor Who shorts last year 2014 when they were released month by month in honour f the 50th anniversary year f the programme ne book per doctor I thought they were done with but unsurprisingly this last ne has not long been released to go with this year s new doctor Peter CapaldiAlas I ve not really watched a great deal f Doctor Who since he started his run not so much because f him but Clara that I can t abide Fortunately in this novel Clara nly appears in reference not as an actual character He has a new companion who is much directly part f this story and the story is told first person from her perspectiveNot much can be said about the story without saying it all as it is nly very short But it is set way in to the future Confessions of a Teenage Hollywood Star on a coffee roasting station somewhere in space coffee is seemingly all important to people and all and sundry stop there to get a really good cupf the black stuff straight from the roasters so to speak Well all is not well which will be Precious Stones: Their Occult Power and Hidden Significance of deep surprise to any Whovians and the Doctor s suggestion that he has just poppedut to get Clara a cup The Proletarian Revolution and the Renegade Kautsky of something holds little water No the coffee isut f rder like the station and something nasty comes Works Days out for refreshment when the lights areff and it s not drinking the coffeeNot too bad wasn t feeling it at first but it was a fairly good twist just not a lot f meat n the bones It s amazing how we hide from that isn t it How much f the violence f the universe comes from the unwillingness to say those two little words I m scared.
