A word of caution, first, I don’t think this will appeal to children but will to more adult Whovians. As the title implies, this is not a Doctor Who adventure in the normal sense of these books but is, instead, a collection of notes – supposedly by William Shakespeare – about his encounters with the Doctor. These notes are sometimes diary like entries and other times written as an alternative excerpt from a Shakespearean play. I wouldn’t advise trying to read them all in one go, but more like a series of short stories – take them one at a time and dip in again when the mood takes you. The authors certainly know the Doctor reincarnations and his companions well, using this knowledge to great effect in the different ‘notes’. Whovians will welcome this, very different, collection of Doctor Who materials, especially if they like Shakespeare, too!
I was given an e-copy of this book by the publishers via NetGalley in exchange for this, an honest review.
