    1. Absolutely great!WHOThe Doctor: The Fourth DoctorCompanions: Romana II & K-9WHERE & WHEN"The Beautiful Death" theme park, outer space, year: 3012WHATThe Doctor and companions arrived to a strange theme park made by several space ships stuck in a kinda of "traffic jam" in the middle of hyperspace. The theme park's main attraction is called "The Beautiful Death" where it's offered to "feel" how is like to die FIRST DOCTOR WHO'S NOVELI was eager to read Doctor Who novels forever but until n [...]

    2. "We all have our regrets, things in our past we wish we could change. But those regrets are part of what makes us who we are. If you could go back and rub things out and start again, life would no longer have any value, no meaning. It is the fact that you only get once chance that makes the small joys of life so precious. Live your life as though it's your last. Because it is. Well, probably."The Beautiful Death is a theme park ride where you can literally die and explore the afterlife and then [...]

    3. What have we here? The Doctor, Romana and K9 arrive at a space station caught in a wormhole. The station is in disarray after a zombie attack which killed most of the passengers; however the survivors recognise our Time Lord travellers and thank them for the pivotal role they played in saving the station and all their lives. Although the station commander seems intent on having them arrested for sabotage. So The Doctor Romana and K9 have no choice but to go back in time to carry out in the past [...]

    4. *Special Content only on my blog, Strange and Random Happenstance during I ♥ ♥ The Doctor (October-December 2013)The Doctor has arrived at the G-Lock, a space station that is the result of a massive pile up two hundred years ago. The G-Lock has become a place of pilgrimage for those wishing to experience The Beautiful Death. The attraction doesn't just simulate what death and the veil beyond is like, but it quite literally kills you and then a short time later brings you back, that's if you' [...]

    5. Originally published at Reading RealityThere are some serious “wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey” bits in this story. The Doctor, Romana and K-9 cross and recross their own time-streams multiple times on a derelict, or soon-to-be-derelict, or just-in-the-middle-of-becoming-derelict, spaceship cum theme-park where the interface between hyperspace and real-space is becoming unstable.And Romana is threatening to withdraw the Doctor's TARDIS-driving privileges if he can’t pass his time travel proficie [...]

    6. Doctor Who can be a tricky series to write for. The series frequently ignores its own continuity (and some of it changes anyway; such is the nature of time travel), and it has a vast history of characters to choose from.Jonathan Morris tackles Doctor Who with such amazing ease that this book, Festival of Death, feels like it could have come directly from the TV series. Tom Baker's Doctor is well-represented here, acting and speaking exactly the way we would expect him to, and his companions Roma [...]

    7. Time travel breaks my brain. Imagine multiple doctors. At one time. Never meeting (by design, of course)This book features the fourth Doctor (my first Doctor), Romana, and everyone's favorite companion, K9. Coming upon a space port in distress (because the TARDIS has a mind of its own), the Doctor and companions try to figure out what happened, why, and how to stop it. Look, they have to go back in time!Seriously, time travel in a narrow period of time (or at all) is difficult to handle well. Th [...]

    8. Why do I always give Doctor Who books such high ratings? I promise I am not biased. This was genuinely a really good story. As the author states in his introduction, this Doctor Who tie-in has enough ideas for two books. He's wrong. This book has enough original ideas and such an interesting story to warrant an independent series. Yeah it was that good.

    9. Gets the era spot on Some excellent witty dialogue and a complex story couldn't put it down 8.5/10

    10. "Festival of Death" could have been one of the best Doctor Who novels. However, Morris trips himself up by introducing some unnecessary components that are obviously unnecessary. First, the good. This is another "time turning round itself" story from the author of the CD audio drama "Flip Flop," which is equally convoluted in regard to characters running past each other at different points in their personal histories but at the same point in general history. For the first half of the book, the s [...]

    11. This book was my second Doctor Who Book, and the Fourth Doctor was easily the easiest Doctor to start with. I love this book because of several reasons.First, the writing. Jonathan Morris writes well, and pens down the Fourth Doctor just as Tom Baker plays him. Teeth, smiles, uppercuts, scarf, everything. The story flows consistently, and in some places its slightly over explained, but sometimes that isn't a bad thing.Second, the science fiction. All the events of temporal physics described in t [...]

    12. Oh, thank goodness that's over. There's a lot to like about this book, but it feels like it goes on forever. Republished to represent the fourth Doctor in the anniversary year of the show, it presents the man of teeth and curls with his companion the Time Lady Romana, and both are on great form (with Romana being particularly well portrayed as an equal to the title character). The writing is strong, and although it's occasionally self-conscious in how much it wants to be like Douglas Adams that' [...]

    13. This Doctor Who story is an enjoyable readonce you get past the initial confusion of the book starting in the middle of the story. Don't worry, it's confusing for the Doctor and Romana too as they land on a former cruise ship that is now a theme park stuck in a wormhole in space for the first time only to find out everyone knows who they are. The adventure ensues and as the book gets closer to the end a lot of things fall into place and the story finally makes sense (well, sense for a time trave [...]

    14. Started off kind of slow as it jumped into the middle of an adventure. But being the Doctor and Romana, they hadn't yet gotten around to the beginning yet.The end was good, but not quite as satisfying as other Doctor Who books.

    15. I will also do a video review here at my channel: youtube/magicofbooks"Festival of Death" by Jonathan Morris follows the fourth Doctor and his companions Romana and K-9 to a ship in space that holds the ultimate theme park attraction: the Beautiful Death. This attraction allows visitors to witness their death and take a tour of the afterlife. All is not right with the attraction and a malfunction occurs. It's up to the Doctor and his companions to save the inhabitants on the ship.This is the fou [...]

    16. As it says in the Introduction of the book, this story was written before Doctor Who got so complex, with multiple timelines and explorations of what it means to be a time traveler. And I thought that since I'm used to the shenanigans of Steven Moffat, this book would probably be pretty tame. Wrong. While it seems old hat now to have the Doctor realize he is going to die doing something, this story takes that chilling realization and spins out a very complex sequence of events. The plot moves ba [...]

    17. Many years ago, I would come across Doctor Who (in the form of Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor) on my TV, as the Doctor had an American home on PBS. In passing, it didn't catch my fancy right away. However, my becoming a Whovian did eventually come to pass. While I've read a few nuWho books, this is the first I've read a classic Doctor novel. Where better to start than with the first Doctor I ran across?The story seems straightforward on its surface; the Doctor and Romana materialize in the bowel [...]

    18. Festival Of Death is a interesting book. It was written before the excellent Moffat era began, yet it features many Moffat-isms.Take, for example, it's timey-wimey plot. In this book, the Doctor and Romana find themselves arriving on the G-Lock(a sort of tourist attraction where visitors can experience what it feels like to die on the 'Beautiful Death')after a disaster, where they quickly find out a future Doctor and Romana helped save some of the injured tourists. The plot largely revolves arou [...]

    19. This is another exellent novel written by Mr Morris this time featuring the Fourth Doctor, Romana & K9.The plot involves a mysterious funfair The Beautiful Death a tour on the afterlife that the Doctor,Romana & K9 have just arriveded in the Tardis in the aftermath of a recent disaster but apparently they've been here before as the are well known & has received congratulations by the inhabitants for his self sacrifice in the past or future's event's?There's a mystery to solve here as [...]

    20. nwhytevejournal/1523021mlI have grumbled occasionally about writers (particularly Eric Saward) who thought that they could channel Douglas Adams, and were wrong. But Jonathan Morris's first novel is an excellent tribute to the Douglas Adams era of Doctor Who - set between Shada and The Leisure Hive, but clearly a story that escaped from Season 17 rather than Season 18. I really enjoyed this: the Doctor / Romana relationship is sheer crack, and yet the book survives the potentially gloomifying el [...]

    21. This was one of my first Doctor Who reads a) ever b) in this full sized novel size c) that didn't also come out on screen. I was truly gifted with this book as if it was a stroke of fate. At the time, I was only recently familiarized with Tom Baker's styling as the Doctor. I was immediately enamored with the 4th doctor's zaniness. My imagination ran wild with this one in regards to setting and character mannerisms. I only emphasize these things because my naivety with i seemed to accentuate the [...]

    22. Being a Dr Who fan for years, especially the 4th Doctor, I was excited to read this book. I have several of the other Dr Who novels (mainly the Terrance Dicks ones), but this was just too much going on to enjoy.The Doctor, K-9, and Romana show up where people go to visit the afterlife. However, when something goes wrong before the Doctor shows up, he is praised for saving people but he doesnt know how he did it. Until he finds out he gives up his life.The tale reminds me of the Back to the Futur [...]

    23. The plot of this Fourth Doctor/Romana II/K-9 romp is worthy of admiration and applause, as the TARDIS crew arrives on the scene of a disaster only to find that everyone who survived it is overwhelmed with gratitude towards our heroes for saving them, which telegraphs that timey-wimeyness is in the offing. And boy is there! I do love time travel stories that are actually about time travel and don't just treat the past or future as simply a weird kind of location.BUTThe author, Jonathan Morris, al [...]

    24. This was such a weird experience: reading a "Doctor Who" adventure rather than watching it! I thought it was especially interesting, given the author's commentary that this story was actually written before the series rebooted. All the time travel stuff, while not necessarily original (given that time-travel stories have been around for a while), could be considered pretty unique pre-reboot. It did get a little excessive, however, and the fact that it was Morris's first novel was pretty evident [...]

    25. An enjoyable tale of timey-wimeyness as the 4th Doctor, K9 and Romana find themselves falling in and out of their own timelines, taking part in an adventure in the wrong order.The adventure in question occurs aboard a dysfunctional space station with a dark history, where a sinister scientist is operating an entertainment device that purports to give paying customers a taste of the afterlife. Needless to say, nothing is entirely as it seems.The author manages to keep an impressive command of all [...]

    26. This is a Fourth Doctor novel loaned me by LJ user spazzkat, and it was a quite enjoyable read since I've had only scattered exposure to the Fourth Doctor episodes--and hardly any of the ones in which Romana appears. It was therefore quite a neat change of pace to be reading all about the dynamic between the Doctor and Romana, wherein we not only have a Companion who's smarter than he is, but who's better at time travel too. ;) And, K-9 was a plus as well.Anyone who had trouble following the tan [...]

    27. This was an excellent read. A very entertaining story. Tom Baker and Lalla Ward never let me down anyway and their voices and personalities really do come through in this book. I've said it before but I love the fourth Doctor and always enjoy reading his stories. This has it all really, the best Doctor, (one of)the best companions, an engaging storyline, some great supporting characters(hoopy is wonderful), and a lot of light-hearted fun all the way through. If there's one thing that lets a lot [...]

    28. An adventure packed with interesting twists and characters. Indeed, this story uses the possibilities of time travel in a way that the 50th Anniversary failed to do when showing the Fall of Gallifrey. Some of the characters are really good and should make it to the screen, especially Gallura, Harken and Hoopy the gonzo lizard. However, like many stories, this could have been truly excellent with a little input from at least one other writer. The use of zombies is a bit lame and though explained [...]

    29. While there were minor flaws, especially in the second half of the novel when things got a bit complicated, I found this book to be enjoyable overall. First, because I was always a Tom Baker fan, so an extra story of the 4th Doctor is always welcome, if it's well-written. Second, because this story examines the real implications of time travel, in a playful and strange way. In fact, there's even an aspect of a time-travel mystery involved, because we see the effects before the causes, as the sto [...]
