Doctor Who: Rat Trap
by Tony Lee
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I thought this was good solid fun, though not mind-blowing. I think it suffers a bit from having the regular cast get split up and paired off with various guest cast members, leaving a lot of separate threads to keep track of. Although on the flip side, it had some very strong guest characters, and some quite emotionally touching moments near the end.
The science does annoy me a bit - as in a lot of Doctor Who
it's very hand wavy ("I made a cocktail of amino acids and proteins and synthetic strings that, when injected made a radical advancement in rat genetics.") and major breakthroughs happen implausibly fast. I should just let this stuff go, really, but I can't quite. But the setting is well-realized and the action is vivid. View all my reviews
