"now i die, i kiss your tender lips goodbye, pray to god he hears my cry"  
A Big Hand For The Doctor (Doctor Who 50th Anniversary E-Shorts, #1)A Big Hand For The Doctor by Eoin Colfer

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

While I didn't grow up with the first Doctor, I have seen some of him, and more than enough to get the feel that the characterisation in the book was a little off. While I could hear Susan's voice clearly in my head, the Doctor's was difficult to find, because he didn't seem like himself. He's not a man I can imagine ever reading Harry Potter, or having any kind of an opinion on popular culture, and when he spoke of his future selves, it irritated me slightly as I wouldn't think he'd know of them, and the line that he sometimes imagined them didn't settle well with me, either.

But the story itself was quite sweet, well put together, and a brilliant link to Peter Pan. As I've said, there are things I would've changed, but for a quick read, and good value for money, I would say it's worth checking out.
