    1. Reading this book felt a bit like watching an episode of classic Doctor Who the Doctor and his companions arrive just as Something Bad is about to happen, Something Bad happens, the companions are either largely useless or kidnapped, most of the tangential cast is killed off, the Doctor works out a solution which he must then explain to everyone who ISN T him because none of the rest of us have the knowledge he has to work from, then they day is saved.Don t take that as an indication I don t lik [...]

    2. Yet again, Nyssa is kidnapped and spends most of the book off stage Poor kid, she really got a raw deal in this series.Otherwise a decent read with an old villain showing up This was good because it expanded on the original TV show, rather than trying to fix things, ehich some of the Missing New books tried to do.

    3. Justin Richards is one of the better ones Doctor Who books are all decent, and the house editing style as imposed currently ensures a certain level of quality, but Richards is steeped in lore, and as he points out here, this was a Fifth Doctor adventure written before the timey wimeyness of the recent stuff think of the intricacies of the Eleventh Doctor era with Clara and the Ponds and how what happened will have happened in the future or a possible future will affect what happens in the past [...]

    4. At long last, I have finished reading this one I began reading it during a period of unemployment, returned it to the library when I was unable to renew it then kind of forgot about it On a couple of occasions, it had been checked out when I did remember to look for it, so it became even frustrating.I have been a Whovian since the mid 1970s when the local PBS station began airing Tom Baker reruns I amassed a large number of the paperback books used to read them voraciously This particular story [...]

    5. This was not terrible but the e book print was very hard to read Perhaps if I ever get the paperback things will go better.

    6. I know that there are better Doctor Who novels than The Sands of Time by Justin Richards I ve read them But unfortunately I hadn t realized until partway into this one that it was written by the same gentleman who wrote The Clockwise Man which was a shame, since this made for a less than impressive first novel exposure to the Fifth Doctor.Now, to be fair, Mr Richards was also starting off a bit handicapped with this one, writing about the Fifth Doctor in the first place My Fifth Doctor fu is adm [...]

    7. I started this book as an e book and finished by reading the paperback reprint that is part of the BBC Books Doctor Who Books Monster Collection Sands of Time was originally published by Virgin Publishing as part of their Doctor Who Missing Adventures Additionally, it s a sequel to the aired episode, Pyramids of Mars featuring the Fifth Doctor, as played by Peter Davison and his companions Tegan and Nyssa However, from a strictly linear sense the story takes place before Pyramids of Mars Timey W [...]

    8. I didn t take to The Sands of Time immediately, but I soon enjoyed it A fairly solid Doctor Who novel, it feels very true to the series era it s set in Its main strength, however the complexity of its time twisting plot is also its weakness.The Doctor, Tegan, and Nyssa land in the British Museum in the 1890s In short order, Nyssa is kidnapped, and the Doctor and Tegan are invited to a mummy unwrapping party by people they ve never met, but who seem to know them quite well And the 4000 year old m [...]

    9. In the foreword, Justin Richards notes that for a show about time travel, Classic Who very rarely actually looked at the implications of time travel This is true, and remains largely true of New Who the TARDIS is mainly a device that allows Doctor Who to happen over a large range of different settings.This, however, is most definitely a time travel story when Nyssa is captured in Victorian London to take part in an Ancient Egyptian ritual, the Fifth Doctor and Tegan go time hopping in order to r [...]

    10. nwhytevejournal 1225914ml return return All Doctor Who books should be like this This is pretty much the perfect Fifth Doctor novel Two of my favourite Big Finish audios are The Reaping, bringing Peter Davison and Janet Fielding together again, and The Bride of Peladon, where the Doctor ends up dealing with the Osirans from Pyramids of Mars Sands of Time has Five and Tegan battling against the servants of the Osirans, helped mainly by Atkins the butler who comes along in place of Nyssa, who is a [...]

    11. Reading this book might remind people of watching the original TV show, The Doctor, and his companions arrive to a scene right as something bad is about to happen The Doctors companions usually aren t much help, as they get kidnapped or they re just bystanders This book is called Doctor Who The Sands of Time by Justin Richards published in 1996 The theme of this book is Egyptian They were in Egypt, they were chasing mummies in pyramids The time period is probably the 80 90s considering there wer [...]

    12. The Sands Of Time is a sequel of sorts to The Pyramids Of Mars, though the only repeat character from the TV series is Marcus Scarman as a walk on Two characters from Black Orchid make longer, though not long, appearances in this novel The novel involves the bizarre kidnapping of Nyssa and the attempts to recover her As such, Nyssa s role is greatly reduced, only slightly larger than in Kinda As in that serial, Nyssa spends most of the story asleep The novel s plot is rather typical of Davison e [...]

    13. Fun but a little over convoluted.Nice to see the Doctor use the Tardis for once, and it adds colour to the story to bounce between ancient Egypt, Victorian Egypt, Victorian London and so on and onThe story serves as a sort of prequel and sequel to the legendary Pyramids of Mars, but despite efforts to paint the villain of the piece here as terrible than Sutekh, it doesn t quite match the classic TV story s sense of menace.The problem here is that the villain s plot is too complicated on TV, 4 b [...]

    14. Undoubtedly one of the best and most enjoyable Doctor Who novels I have read Even as a standalone book, Sands of Time is an intricate, well written and thoroughly rewarding read.Davison s Doctor is perhaps the most difficult of all the Doctors to portray in a novelisation, yet Richards manages extremely well, and equally his companions are brought to life The time travelling humour and plot twists are ingenuously woven through so that the reader is never bored Additionally, Richards shows a clea [...]

    15. Faithful sequel to The Pyramids of Mars, this time pitting the Doctor against the sister wife of Sutek Richards creates a great companion with the butler Atkins, often overshadowing Tegan Nyssa is relegated to the back for the entire novel, asleep in a coma which will bring about Nephertyis Only sour point is the truly silly ending I can just picture it Note Mentions are made of events from City of Death Scaroth , Black Orchid, Ann Talbot , Earthshock Adric s death , The Visitation, and of cours [...]

    16. The Sands of Time is a nicely crafted time travel novel It s fun and features nice characterization of both the main and guest cast There are connections to the Fourth Doctor serial Pyramids of Mars, but the story can be enjoyed on its own Fans of the new series who are curious about the classic series novels might consider starting here The modern show s twisty plot devices were first used in novels like this one and in Jonathan Morris Festival of Death.

    17. Quite enjoyed this despite the fact the Peter Davidson years at the time I found a bit hit and miss.is book however takes a previous Who menace from a prior Doctor incarnation and makes for a fun readI do enjoy the books that utilise the TV series and some of the lesser used villians.There is much back and forth in time and in some ways the book is a little pedestrian rather than riviting.ever characterisation is good and it is fun light read.

    18. A great classic Dr Who adventure I was always fond of the Fifth Doctor and I am glad that there are people who are continuing to write about the Doctors that came before the new series While I have enjoyed some of the Doctors that have come since, especially David Tennant, I still maintain a deep love and fondness for the Doctors of the old days and hope that there will continue to be new books written about their adventures.

    19. After Nyssa is kidnapped at the British Museum, the Fifth Doctor and Tegan find themselves ensnared in a puzzle stretching from ancient Egypt to the present day With events complementing The Pyramids of Mars , there are robotic Mummies, desert expeditions and ancient gods as the Doctor battles to unlock the mystery and save his companion Good fun.

    20. You best be a Doctor Who fan to enjoy the book I picked up an epub Nook version of the book, and it was poorly formatted The story was a typical Dr Who book, though I had a hard time visualizing him in my head because I started with Dave Tennant However, an enjoyable romp from ancient Egypt to 1996 London, with a stop in the 20 s and 1880 s as well It made a nice diversion.

    21. The use of time travel in this particular novel was done very well I was lost for most of the story but I knew that somewhere towards the end everything would connect together The character that catches my attention the most was Atkins, his quiet composure was easier for me to relate to as a reader, making it easier for me to view things through his eyes.

    22. This is the first Dr Who book I have read I watched one episode of the BBC series but was totally lost and turned off the TV So, surprisingly, I liked the book It didn t get interesting though until almost half way through the book.

    23. A fun adventure that hops around time between England and Egypt in classic Doctor Who style I read it online at the BBC s site.

    24. Long before Steven Moffat brought extra large doses of wibbley wobbley timey wimey to Doctor Who, Justin Richards gave the 5th Doctor a crack, with a devious and cunning sequel to the 1970s classic Pyramids of Mars You won t see the novel s climax coming until it s almost on top of you

    25. I fairly enjoyed this book, up until the double ending I understand what the author was trying to do, but I found it completely unnecessary.

    26. It was a fun read Very much like watching an episode, and the author does a good job of weaving the idea of time travel throughout the book.
