Like all the Doctor Who novels I've read so far this one was interesting, a good plot and the characters accurately portrayed to the point you can hear the actors voices in your head as you read it. ( )

Excellent discussion on this book by Philip Sandifer

Wasn't sure if I was going to like this one at the start, but it picked up quickly. It was an adventure with my first and favorite Doctor, Nine and his companions Rose and Captain Jack. Excellent combo. This was a bit dark and had some 'yikes' moments. Not that the show doesn't get dark, but this was WHOA!

A person from the future, a twisted person, is experimenting with human genetics. They have created dangerous human/animal hybrids and have gone on an expedition to earth's past with plans to repopulate the planet with their creations and change the course of earth's history and evolution. Jack spent the majority of the adventure in the present day acclimating a wayward, time-traveling neanderthal to the mondern day, as he is essentially stuck there due to time travel shenanigans. The Doctor and Rose went to the past to battle the big bad.

This was a "hang on to the edge of your seat" story. Clearly you know the Doctor and his companions saved the day, but sometimes you just have no clue how it could be possible. A very enjoyable read/listen. I will be interested in reading more stories in this vein. ( )

These Doctor Who books always tend to either be a hit or a miss. This book, in my humble opinion, was definitely a hit! The author really captured the characters and made them seem authentic to the show. Most of the time, I really can't imagine any of the New Series Adventure books being actual Doctor Who episodes but this one was so neat that is was easy to! I definitely recommend it! ( )

Read this review, and many more on my blog October Tune!

This story features the Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler and Captain Jack Harkness. They end up 21st century Bromley where a Neanderthal man, named Das, has just been discovered in a hospital. While Jack looks after Das, the Doctor and Rose travel back to Bromley 28,000 years before, to see what went wrong. And what they find there is so weird, even the Doctor has no idea what to do.

Nine has always been one of my favourite Doctors, mainly because he was the first Doctor I saw, and Rose is just one of my favourite companions. When I saw that this novel included Jack as well, I was sold. Jack is also one of my favourite characters in Doctor Who (not so much in Torchwood, though, but that’s for another time). This story also features a lot of beautiful (and then I mean movie-star beautiful, that is how they were described every time) people from the year 438,533 AD (approximately), and of course the Neanderthals from the year 26,185 BC.

What I liked:

When I started reading, before I hit 25 pages, there was the part that made me love this story already. The Doctor and Rose needed to get into the hospital where they were holding Das, and the Doctor asked Jack for a distraction. Well, what does Jack do? A thing only Jack would do… He takes of all of his clothes and runs across the street. What a distraction indeed!

Furthermore, I loved the way this story portrayed the Neanderthals, and our ancestors too for that matter, as clever beings – not as the brainless, ape-like creatures most books, tv-shows and movies portray them. When Das found out he was stuck in the 21st century, he learned to cope very quickly. Of course, this is still all fiction, and we’ll probably never find out how they actually were, unless time travel gets invented (which I don’t think will happen, ever).

The people in the Osterberg project were all strange, brainless and I was really happy when I met Quilley, who was known as a ‘Refuser’, someone who refused to use the ‘poppers’, which I thought were drugs that made the Osterberg people so brainless. If they were feeling ‘wrong-feelings’, they would just type in a combination to make them feel happy again, or well, emotionless actually, because I don’t think happy was good either.. Hmm…

I liked Gareth Roberts’ writing, it was very easy, though sometimes he used some words that I found difficult, but of course that’s what Doctor Who is for. I’ve read one other story written by him, I Am A Dalek, which was enjoyable but in my opinion way too short (I really wanted that one to be a full novel). He has also written several episodes for the show, like ‘The Shakespeare Code’, ‘The Unicorn and the Wasp’, and ‘Closing Time’, which were all episodes I really liked. I am definitely going to check out more of his books!

What I didn’t like:

There was only one thing I didn’t really like, sometimes while I was reading, I had no idea what I was actually reading. I had to re-read several parts before I finally understood what it said. Also, I just straight-up hated the main villain, Chantal. Because she turned those 100 people into brainless idiots, who wouldn’t even run away even though they were being attacked and eaten by Chantal’s creations.

In the end, I really liked Only Human, and seriously, I have started to ask myself if I will ever find a Doctor who novel that is really really bad.. ( )
