Recent Comments "Doctor Who: Parasite"
Parasite is one of my favorite stories within the novel ranges of Dr. Who. It is primarily a story about change. Unstoppable, vicious and violent change. The world drawn up in Mortimore's Artifact is a magnificent unreal place and the sheer alien quality at the onset of the story is wild enough before the entire place, and the unlucky few who have chosen to visit it, are engulfed by the birth of something new within it. If you are a die hard Whovian, I highly recommend this and Mortimore's few o [...]
It makes for compelling reading, but this is not a book for the timid. It plays in a world of nauseous ugliness, violence, and brutality in all its forms, and it CAN become exhausting at times. I'm beginning to think that, after reading all of Jim Mortimore's Doctor Who novels, the author simply isn't capable of telling a story that DOESN'T delve into the dark hearts of men's souls. That's good OR bad, depending on your mood
More by accident than design, I’ve found myself reading a large number of Jim Mortimore’s books in 2014, so I’m in the unusual position of being able to comment on his work as a whole. In a funny sort of way, I think he’s a better science fiction writer than he is a Doctor Who writer – and nowhere is this displayed more clearly than in ‘Parasite’.The central concept – a planet that isn’t a planet but a living organism – isn’t a new one, but it’s handled superbly here, esp [...]
Where did he go, this Jim Mortimore, I wonder? After he wrote the last truly great Big Finish audio "The Natural History of Fear" he just vanished. (The same could be said about many other great Doctor Who writers from that period. Seriously, [i]where are they?[/i])Anyway, this is one of his earlier efforts and the first one in which he went all weird and mind-boggling. And yeah, this is a good thing - at least with Mortimore. "Parasite" surely wasn't the first "weird" book in the New Adventures [...]
nwhytevejournal/1973973ml[return][return]A New Adventure with an impressively imagined setting, a possibly living cylindrical structure containing madly mutating mosses, monkeys, and massive trees, into which the Doctor, Benny and Ace arrive and get tangled up with terminal mayhem. I found it a bit of a slow read but have a feeling that may be my fault rather than the author's. The science of the setting may not be completely sound but I was able to suspend my disbelief.
Well that was an odd one. Jim Mortimore is one weird dude and bless him for it. A very strange but very entertaining read. Love the ideas in this story. Put me in mind of 'Rondevous with Rama' more than once.
Great ideas, but an erratic plot where some things get lost.
