Beautiful Chaos by Gary Russell (Review)

Donna Noble is back home in London, catching up with her family and generally giving them all the gossip about her journeys. Her grandfather is especially overjoyed - he's discovered a new star and had it named after him. He takes the Doctor, as his special guest, to the naming ceremony.

But the Doctor is suspicious about some of the other changes he can see in Earth's heavens. Particularly that bright star, right there. No not that one, that one, there, on the left...

The world's population is slowly being converted to a new path, a new way of thinking. Something is coming to Earth, an ancient force from the Dark Times. Something powerful, angry, and all-consuming...


The start of this story brought to mind the sad scene at the end of Journey's End, when the Doctor was left all on his own. However, then the story goes back in time to a time when Donna & the Doctor are visiting her family - I loved that! How we get to see so much more of what Donna's family was like and the last chapter in the book was so touching and sweet - any fan if Donna Noble should be deeply moved by it.

Recommended to fans of Doctor Who.
