August Books 24) Back To The Vortex, by J Shaun Lyon

I've given up on this "unofficial and unauthorised guide to Doctor Who 2005", after ploughing through a first half composed entirely of secondary reports gleaned from the media and checking out the write-ups of the first two episodes, and I won't buy any of the rest in the series. I picked it off the shelf at the Doctor Who shop hoping for something at least as insightful and interesting as the ol' Discontinuity Guide and if possible approaching the standards of the About Time series, but this isn't it. The reviews of each story were written almost immediately after broadcast, so have the qualities of enthusiastic reflection rather than the detailed reflection which I know several of the writers can deliver. A disappointment.
