Edinburgh, 1759. The Nor' Loch is being filled in. If you ask the soldiers there, they'll tell you it's a stinking cesspool that the city can do without. But that doesn't explain why the workers won't go near the place without an armed guard. That doesn't explain why they whisper stories about the loch giving up its dead, about the minister who walked into his church twelve years after he died...It doesn't explain why, as they work, they whisper about a man called the Doctor.And about the many hands of Alexander Monro.Featuring the Doctor and Martha as played by David Tennant and Freema Agyeman in the hit series from BBC Television.… (mere)

The Tenth Doctor and Martha visit 1759 Edinburgh to see the city as the New Town is being built. Apart from the surprise of seeing a loch where you’d expect the Princes Street Gardens, Martha and the Doctor end up facing some 18th-century mad science, an alien bent on immortality, and seriously creepy sentient hands. Overall, this was a good story. Having been to Edinburgh myself I enjoyed the setting, and I found the scenes with the hands to be delightfully creepy (Chapter 6 was the best in that regard). If you like the more historical stories of Doctor Who, or are interested in early science or the era of the Scottish Enlightenment, you might like this one. ( )

This is one of the best of the current crop of Who books. The alien is extremely creepy and the characterizations of the Doctor and Martha are spot on. The plot is fast paced with an evenly interesting path for both regulars. The supporting players are all well-rounded and interesting, especially McAlister (who I was waiting to be revealed as an ancestor to the Brig). Dale Smith is one to watch with the Who books, he should write for the show. ( )

A jolly good Tenth Doctor and Martha novel, which would have made a brilliant TV episode (or couple of episodes). Mostly set in eighteenth-century Edinburgh, where alien tech has created a flock of semi-sentient hands which are terrifying the locals. A good sense of place and a couple of David Tennant in-jokes referencing Bathgate and Hamlet. Entertaining stuff. ( )

Great reading by David Troughton, but I didn't particularly like the story. ( )

The Doctor loved Rose but I liked Martha Jones so my first Doctor Who book had to be The Doctor and Martha. Doctor Who: The Many Hands by Dale Smith was one of the few Doctor books just waiting for me to read them so I picked it up and gave it a whirl. Smith captured The Doctor's voice so well, the spirit of the book and the TV show is the same and it reads like the roller coaster ride that most of the Television episodes show you.

The Many Hands is fast, fun and highly entertaining. I flat out did not want to put it down, in the beginning there are zombies but of course as Martha and The Doctor dig deeper we find out that the "zombies" are in fact part of a sinister experiment being conducted by a local scientist and his "son" using alien technology. I love when Doctor Who links "real" history into their episodes and books in this one keep an eye open for Benjamin Franklin. This one gets two thumbs up I can't wait to pick up my next Doctor Who novel. ( )
