Reviews

THE MARY SUE -- Regardless of the fact that my favorite companion hasn't been featured (coughDonnacough) I'm still really excited that there is going to be this middle-grade/young-adult collection for young female fans of Doctor Who (boys can love it too, of course). Even though there are so many women in the Doctor Who fanbase, sometimes it can be overwhelming or hard to get into "geek" spaces because so much of it is coded male. Most of the DW novels have 9, 10 or 11 right on the front of the cover with their female companion in the background. This book has the companions front and center. It is also a good mix of women: Rose, who was a great working-class, everywoman heroine. Clara...she's nice (I'm sorry, I'm sorry Clara fans). Bill who is an awesome lesbian woman of color, and a great way to expose young women to differences early. And Sarah Jane Smith...the legend. The Queen. A heroine who is a grown woman still living an exciting life. I'm super excited that young fans of the show will get to read stories about women kicking butt.
