A Doctor Who Halloween - Good for Pre and Tweens
I love the Doctor and Martha together, even though I hate that she's the Rebound-Companion during their time together during the series. I'm glad that most of the books don't feature much of the stupid romance forced into the show.
This is definitely a Halloween story. Pumpkin-esqe creatures, a small town celebrating a Halloween-like holiday, and enough black cats to make you start looking around for witches. It's fun, it has some good action scenes, but the villains don't really seem all that threatening. Also, the townspeople are pretty much stereotypes, right down to the one sensible old woman living in the woods.
Martha doesn't have enough to do in my opinion and the Doctor being captured doesn't add any tension. It just makes you wonder how long until he clevers his way out and saves the day. It was predictable and lacked the real tension I crave in Doctor Who stories. But I did like the climax and it is a very good story for younger children during Halloween.
The narrator did a job performing the story. It was always clear which characters were speaking and his villainous Pumpkin sounded great!
