    to be two more volumes covering every episode of Who right up until David Tennant s swan song I suppose the big question then is whether this concept and format works Well it did for me I imagine there are a number of ways in which you could read this book You could emulate Robert and Toby s epic quest of friendship and after watching each episode of Who turn to Running Through Corridors to see if your opinions chime with those of the authors who it should be noted don t always agree with each other Or you could do things the opposite way round reading each entry prior to watching the relevant episode so that your viewing experiences benefit from Shearman and Hadoke s various insights I did neither of those things however Instead I read the book straight through in a couple of sittings without watching any Hartnell or Troughton at all although I have seen my fair share in the past Running Through Corridors succeeds because the format is loose enough to allow the authors room for conversational roaming This is not a programme guide Instead it s an opportunity to sit with two erudite friends as they explore a subject they are passionate about Consequently both authors fail to confine themselves to a simple critical appraisal of each episode Instead they use Who as a jumping off point to explore everything from social history to politics to fandom and much more besides Running Through Corrridors is a great book which I thoroughly enjoyed And if you re a fan of Doctor Who I would be very surprised if you didn t enjoy it too Line Break By Matthew Badham Share Running Through Corridors Tags Books Doctor Who Rob Shearman Running Through Corridors Toby Hadoke TV One Response Review Running Through Corridors Matthew Badham s blog says April 29 2011 at 10 10 am Read my review here RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll Doctor Who The post Big Bang survival kit Print s Not Dead World of Fancraft The Shiny Shelf Alternative Xmas Gift Guide Fringe 2 16 Peter Ashes to Ashes Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who Documentary DVD Enterprise Fifth Geoff Johns George Lucas Grant Morrison Horror ITV JJ Abrams Joss Whedon London Film Festival Marvel Movies Russell T Davies Spider Man Star Trek Star Wars Superman The X Files TV Vampires X Men Zombies Comics Read Younger Looking Flesh our first webcomic Tags Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston

    his own way and it isn t anything we haven t seen before It comes across as tepid at best and the entire plot could have been written out The Hranrarii are given little time to develop and aside from being pacifists with a vaguely religious bent we learn little about them The terraforming artifact carries a bit of a surprise but any exploration in that department is threadbare and basically serves as a deux ex machina to our heroes in a few tough spots In fact that is the major problem with Seize the Fire It clocks in at around 500 pages and yet there are areas of the plot that are missing A mission to communicate with the intelligence on the terraforming artifact is glossed over Captain Riker heads over to the Gorn ship alone for tense negotiations We never see what happens on the Gorn ship we get scenes with the XO Vale fretting and Troi relating what she can sense Then there are the other areas where the novel is lacking The Hranrarii are criminally underdeveloped The characters are fairly flat throughout The novel takes its sweet time going anywhere this was easily the hardest Titan novel to get into and I am a huge fan of the series It is tough to recommend Seize the Fire It is not a bad novel but never quite pulls everything together Had it been given another 50 to 100 pages perhaps the plot would have felt more complete but even then there s a sense that something went off the rails It s flat and uninspired never rising above mediocre when it could have been a very very good read One can t help but feel that all of the editorial upheaval at Pocket Books did not do this novel any favors This novel needed a strong editorial hand to guide it along and clearly that was lacking I hope that this is not a sign of things to come from future Star Trek novels Buy Seize the Fire at Amazon Line Break By Julio Angel Ortiz Julio Angel Ortiz maintains his collection of curiosities at www julioinprogress com You can also Like him on Facebook as well and check out his latest writing projects Share Star Trek Typhon Pact Seize the Fire Tags Books Seize the Fire Star Trek Typhon Pact Comments are closed RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll Doctor Who The post Big Bang survival kit Print s Not Dead World of Fancraft The Shiny Shelf Alternative Xmas Gift Guide Fringe 2 16 Peter Ashes to Ashes Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who

    I wish Dax and Bashir had more time together and for some closure as opposed to yet another argument that appeared too quickly but that is a minor nitpick The Breen here are a mixed bag Without wanting to spoil anything we are given insight into their culture that has never been presented before at this depth Mack s view of a repressed society in full 1984 mode is creepily reflective of what our society could become left unchecked The paranoid interrogation officer the torture and repression of those considered different by society is well presented The biggest issue is with the make up of Breen society The revelation of what makes up the Breen is an interesting if bit far fetched concept and would have worked better had the origin of this set up been delved into To take it at face value and not explore just what went into several races joining together in this manner and giving up individual rights is a hole in the narrative that begs for further development There are also some moral issues that are brought up near the end of the novel Is it out of character for Bashir to kill engineers during the course of the mission to sabotage the Breen prototype Or the climactic manner the Aventine deals with said prototype There are some gray areas the novel enters but never fully explores the ramifications leaving the reader to accept events and perhaps be left with a bad taste in their mouth As always your mileage may vary In the end Zero Sum Game is a fast paced adventure novel that satisfies It s not perfect and a few spots will test your suspension of disbelief Bashir s old flame versus the Breen fighters for example but overall it is an enjoyable read Not Mack s best work but a fine way to kick off the Typhon Pact series Buy Zero Sum Game from Amazon Line Break By Julio Angel Ortiz Julio Angel Ortiz maintains his collection of curiosities at www julioinprogress com You can also Like him on Facebook as well and check out his latest writing projects Share Star Trek Typhon Pact Zero Sum Game Tags Books Star Trek Typhon Pact Zero Sum Game Comments are closed RECENT POPULAR TAGS Saga Django Unchained Disney and Lucasfilm Dracula vs Robin Hood vs Jekyll and Hyde 1 2 Star Trek Titan Fallen Gods Ted The Dark Knight Rises UK comics round up Nelson The Scarifyers Quick Doctor Who poll Doctor Who The post Big Bang survival kit Print s Not Dead World of Fancraft The Shiny Shelf Alternative Xmas Gift Guide Fringe 2 16 Peter Ashes to Ashes Advent Calendar Alan Moore Angel Batman BBC BBC One BBC Three BBC Two BFI Billie Piper Books Brian Michael Bendis Buffy Channel 4 Chris Carter Christopher Eccleston Comedy Comics David Tennant DC Doctor Who Documentary DVD Enterprise Fifth Geoff Johns George Lucas Grant Morrison Horror ITV JJ Abrams Joss Whedon London Film
