Indeed, no better example is there than incoming companion Anji and her star-crossed lover, Dave. Anji Kapoor is a twenty-something Soho stockbroker: confident, convincing and just a bit scary. Yet the two of them are clearly smitten, happy in their mutual routines and rituals and both looking to make them permanent. At least, they are until Dave is abducted by aliens and Anji has only one man that she can turn to….
Yes, that might explain it. One minute, a crotchety old man,. The Doctor, meanwhile, has spent a hundred and thirteen years waiting to meet the mysterious Fitz in Saint Louis, but without a more precise location the odds of him actually crossing paths with the fellow are actually pretty slim. So what does he do? Escape Velocity had enough on its plate without Fitz burdening the Doctor with the knowledge of what he had to do in order to stop Faction Paradox; that reveal could wait for a another day. The adventure is about to begin all over again, and poor old Anji has unwittingly signed up for the trip of a lifetime, the carpet having been pulled from under her stilettos in every imaginable sense.

The Doctor finally meets up with Fitz. In the meantime, a young couple gets mixed up with aliens by accident, and a space race becomes dangerous. It's nice to finally near the end of the Doctor stuck on earth storyline, it was starting to get tedious. The space race is interesting and its fun seeing the Doctor become like his old self again. Anji, the new companion is introduced. Not sure about her yet.

Of course, I did the inevtable thing of checking for mistakes it's Boulevard Adolphe Max, not Rue Adolphe Max, and anyway I think he means the Boulevard Anspach; the EU district is described as southwest rather than east of the city centre, but otherwise the geography is right but generally I liked being on familiar territory.
The book was written in and is set in early , so it is a time when we were already living here, and I imagined how I might have brushed past the characters on my lunch break in those days I occasionally wandered down from CEPS in the Place du Congr Sep 20, Abbe added it Shelves: in-library.

Despite the horrible writing, I kind of enjoyed this one. The new characters were all a bit flat. Most of the chapters or scenes ended with an overdose of melodrama. Anji's thought process was over-done and pretty much ridiculous, although I like her character.
Doctor Who: Escape Velocity by Colin Brake (Paperback, 2001)
I've really been enjoying the whole plot-arc with Eight losing his memories. This story brought a part of that to a very satisfying conclusion. If you love the Doctor and can look past some sloppy writing, check it out. Jan 03, Daniel Kukwa rated it did not like it Shelves: doctor-who. It's so ordinary and childish, side-by-side with emotional epics such as "Casualties of War". Colin Brake has never been my favourite "Doctor Who" author, but this really shouldn't have been the final novel in the exile series. Jul 05, Andy Stehr rated it really liked it. Quite good.
