I am an American who has never seen or read Doctor Who. I did not know where to start. There seems to be several Doctors. I am a fan of Patrick Ness, so when I saw he had a Doctor Who Story, I decided to start there. I really liked it. The story is similar to his Chaos Walking Series. In The Knife of Never Letting Go, people can read each other's minds. In this story, in an alternate United States, it is fashionable to wear a Truth Teller. The Truth Teller repeats what is on your mind, such as, you have fat thighs, etc...

This seems to be Science Fiction bordering on Fantasy. I loved it and plan on trying more Doctor Who from other authors.

Quick listen

Interesting story but it doesn't really focus on the doctor or the aliens. Does paint an interesting picture of small town life during WW2
