Doctor Who: System Wipe - Oli Smith

The Doctor is trapped inside the virtual world of the game Parallife, the world of which is about to get wiped. The real world at the same time is also endangered.

 

This was another very quick adventure for the 11th Doctor, Amy and Rory. I find that I quite like the stories that are set in virtual reality after I read The Three Body Problem. Even though I felt the characters were not caught as well as in some of the Doctor Who novels I've read, it was not difficult to imagine the story as an episode of the television series.

 

It's a short and fast paced read and in the 'real' world there is more than enough happening as well. I found it an enjoyable read.

 

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
