"A satisfyingly gruesome, action-packed and thrillingly fast-moving
continuity-fest, on a scale surely way beyond the TV show's effects
budget" * SFX *
"I try not to dish out full marks regularly but Engines of War warranted it so, so much. It's a must-read, a well-needed insight into the Time War that is exquisitely written amongst other things. Mann has a sure grip of the War Doctor, a sublime companion, plenty of edge-of-your-seat action sequences but, above all, Engines of War gives scope and considerably more depth to the Doctor's dilemma in The Day of the Doctor, helping us see why he really was so conflicted over using the Moment. More please, at the double" * Doctor Who TV *
"Engines of War provides adventure with the highest stakes and delivers its central character nicely to his position at the beginning of the anniversary special, with a pleasing echo of the incarnation's birth. While he may cry "No more", we will happily demand plenty more of this War Doctor!" * Cultbox *
