Doctor Who: Touched By An Angel - Jonathan Morris

I went into this book a bit worried because I wasn't sure if the same formula that generally works on TV would still work on paper. Also, The Weeping Angels are my favourite villains/monsters whatever you called them, and I feared that they wouldn't be used as effectively as in the show.

Luckily, I was proven wrong. It felt as I was reading a longer episode from the show. The author did a wonderful job making the Angels as creepy in book form as they are in TV form. Even though there were a lot of everyday events described in the book, they helped to build the relationship between the characters and make the reader feel more attached to them.

I especially enjoyed that the narrator was an omniscient one and took turns in describing all the characters' feelings in the different situations. Rory continues to be my favourite and I felt that he was very well portrayed.

Finally, the humour was spot on. I appreciated the little comedy relief moments, especially with a heart-breaking storyline as this one. The jokes were quite good and the references both to the show and pop culture (Back to The Future reference WOOHOO!) made me squee like the little fangirl I am.

As I said, I wasn't expecting much but I was very pleased with it. I really want to get my hands on some of the 10 stories now.
