    This is the second short story of the 50th Anniversary e-book event where there are 11 stories, portraiting one different doctor and one different companion per book. Here, as you can guess, it's with the Second Doctor. His companion is Jamie McCrimmon.The GoodEverything! No, really, this short story is really good. I enjoyed it a lot and I had the time of my life reading it.New villains: The Archons. I don't know if it will be a rule for this short story series to introduce new villains on each book. However, the Archons are marvellous enemies, with a formidable and really interesting past. Without a doubt, a great addition to the Doctor Who's Rogues Gallery.Also, there are some interesting references to Star Trek, Star Wars (kinda) and a very known saga of horror books by a quite well known author but I won't spoil.The BadNothing! No, really, the only bad here was when the story ended since it was a wonderful reading.The OddIt's difficult to situate where this particular adventure may happened since the Second Doctor is travelling only with Jamie as companion and nobody else. However, in the period shown on the TV series, the Second Doctor never was only with Jamie, always there was at least one other companion. My best guess? The short story must be set in the famous "lost years" of the Second Doctor. It's a common theory between fans that the Second Doctor did some secret mission ordered by the Time Lords after being submitted on a trial by them and found him guilty. His companions at the moment, Jamie and Zoe, were sent to their proper times and got erased their memories while travelling with the Second Doctor. Meanwhile, the proper Second Doctor is exiled to Earth and the Time Lord imposed a regeneration on him, BUT the audience never got to watch the moment of the regeneration. So, it's pretty common the theory that the punishments weren't executed right away, so the Time Lords may employ the Second Doctor as a "secret agent" for some missions on behalf of them. This short story doesn't give any hint of that, even the TARDIS is damaged and the Second Doctor and Jamie are "stuck" in some time period and if they would be forced agents of the Time Lords, it could be really odd that they wouldn't help them to have an operational TARDIS. Anyway, the point is that it's impossible to have a certainty of when this tale may happened in the "timeline" of the series.Another odd thing is the use of known villain (I won't spoil) as a minor factor to develop the main plot, but due it's a Second Doctor tale, it was an odd choice of villain.

    After last month's appalling attempt to rewrite the First Doctor as a superhero cyborg, I was rather put off this series of short ebooks. That book seemed less concerned with celebrating the history of the character and introducing his previous iterations to a new generation readers than it was with scrapping everything and starting from scratch. Thankfully, Michael Scott appears not only to know the Second Doctor, but also to like him. This is a short, sweet novelette, accessible to kids without being childish. This is what I thought such a series should be - finding out how other Doctors would have worked in the fast-paced forty-five minute format we know today. And it works brilliantly. The Second Doctor here is Troughton through and through, the scruffy cosmic hobo, and his highlander companion Jamie McCrimmon is easily recognisable. There's a guest slot from an unnamed foe who fans will recognise and newer readers will be able to take a fair guess at the identity of, and a huge dose of Lovecraftian homage as the Doctor and Jamie are thrown against an ancient enemy. The cosmic horror this suggests is toned down, but the tropes are well used, and the tentacled, clawed THINGS of Lovecraft's fictional universe suit the Second Doctor's era very well. Scott zips the reader through the adventure, plucking out the best loved elements of Troughton's era on the show, and makes excellent use of them. For older fans, this is a welcome return for the Second Doctor and Jamie, and younger readers are going to love them.

    What a pleasant relief this book was after the first dismal volume. I have no doubt that this author has actually seen an episode of Doctor Who, as opposed to Colfer.What do we get for the Second Doctor? A fun little romp on Earth and then an alien world. Yes it may have tried a little too hard to connect to Gallifreyan mythology and the addition of a character before thier time was a bit grating, but this little bit of fluff looks like a diamond compared to "A Big Hand For the Doctor".The aspect that the writer nailed was the characterisation and voice of the Second Doctor and Jamie. Bravo on that.

    I really enjoyed this re-read. I'm definitely eager to read more books by this wonderful author; but he captured the Second Doctor and Jamie's character really well :)

    Ah, The Doctor and Jamie McCrimmon slaloming through space and time. Even though this particular chapter of the Doctor’s adventures was broadcast years before I was born, there is something about Patrick Troughton's Doctor Who which just captivates me so much.A review I read elsewhere of the previous story (‘A Big Hand for the Doctor’) offered the fair criticism that it was trying turn the first Doctor into The Terminator. It just didn’t feel very Hartnell. This month’s story is also a literary mash-up, but instead of Peter Pan (with J.M.Barrie witnessing the events and thus being inspired) we have the fantastic imagination of H.P.Lovecraft.Lovecraftian lore is a fertile hunting ground for Dr Who, dealing as it does with ancient and unspeakable evils which must be stopped. Jamie has a sinister book pressed upon him by an old man (Lovecroft fans will guess which book) and adventure and horror and ancient far away worlds are soon entwined. This feels a lot more like 1960’s Dr Who than the previous tale and captures Troughton incredibly well. As a consequence I read it with a big smile on my face. Indeed delight bubbled within me that bagpipes and the recorder formed a key part of the tale.I really like Jon Pertwee too, so am now impatiently counting down to the next tale.

    To be honest, I didn't expect much of this, based on not having thought much of the Alchemyst, but I have to say The Nameless City worked a whole lot better for me than A Big Hand for the Doctor. It's obvious that Scott knows the Second Doctor's character well, and his companion Jamie, and the era; there was no attempt to "reimagine" it all here in order to make it more palatable for the younger/newer readers - it was just a straightforward, fun adventure with a bit of horror.Nothing too deep or brilliant - I don't think the short story format really lends itself to in-depth characterisation or multilayered plots - but it had a very "authentic" Second Doctor era feel. Unlike with the first short story where the First Doctor's physical description was about the only thing about him that I recognised, here it was very clear this was Two we were dealing with (behaviour, speech patterns, etc).

    LOVED IT!I haven't watched any of the episodes of the Second Doctor, so I didn't know what to expect but I really liked him. As I have no knowledge of this Doctor I cannot say if book!Doctor was true to TV!Doctor but I thought Scott's narration was very engaging and he included several phrases that I'm sure must have been typical of this Doctor.Speaking of Scott, I really appreciate how he wrote the different scenes as if it was an episode of the show. We follow what the Doctor and Jamie are doing as well as what is happening elsewhere and will eventually have an effect on the characters.I really really enjoyed the dynamic between the Doctor and Jamie. I loved that he was a Scottsman (how can I resist?) and more importantly, that the companion was not, in some level or another, in love with the Doctor.

    I found this second in the series of e-shorts a big improvement on the first book and well deserving of its 5-stars. Michael Scott seemed a lot more confident with his Doctor and also with companion Jamie. I'd been disappointed with Scott's 'Alchemyst' but now I'm thinking I may have misjudged him .While Book 1 drew on 'Peter Pan', here it is H.P. Lovecraft's mythos that is featured though still pitched in a way that isn't too disturbing for younger readers (the series if produced by Puffin after all).

    After the disappointment of "A Big Hand for the Doctor," this is a marked improvement for this 50th Anniversary celebratory range. From characterization and story - I can find nothing to be critical about and everything to love. I could easily imagine the characters from the TV show performing this story as I read the book, which is high praise for a TV-tie-in novel.

    Thankfully this was a huge improvement on the first book in this new series. Scott actually seems to know the character of the second Doctor and his little idiosyncrasies, and the adventure itself is a fun one. Nice to see Jamie 'again' as well. Do we think Sarah Jane will be in #3 or #4? (or both?) Things are looking up...

    Doctor Who the Nameless City is the second book in the Twelve Doctors 50th Anniversary boxed set of 12 mini-books. It features the Second Doctor, as played by Patrick Troughton on the BBC Television series Doctor Who and his companion Jaime, the Scottish Highlander. Polly is mentioned but not present and no mention is made of Zoë or Victoria (or even Ben), which made me wonder when the story was meant to be set in the Second Doctor Era.In the story, a disguised Master manipulates Jaime into taking a dangerous book as a reward and giving that book to the Doctor. The Doctor, meanwhile, is attempting to fix his TARDIS but needs gold, mercury, and Zeiton-7 - three substances it's difficult to get in Victorian London. However, when Jaime gives the Doctor the book, it turns out to be the Necronomicon. The Necronomicon, or Book of Dead Names, was written by an ancient (even more ancient than the Time Lords) and mostly dead race known as the Archons. And the Archons have a grudge against the Time Lords. The book possesses the TARDIS and brings it to the Archon homeworld, just outside the Nameless City.There, the Doctor, the TARDIS, and Jaime are transported to the city by ape-like robots. The Archons make threats, including wanting to use the TARDIS to change history so they were never defeated. They therefore, conveniently, fix the TARDIS, with pools of gold, mercury, and Zeiton-7 - which are all plentiful on their world. Their city is also made from glass and exists in multiple dimensions.Needless to say, after the TARDIS is fixed - the Doctor and Jaime manage to escape in a rather clever way.I enjoyed this - whereas the first book in this series of basically short stories was filled with references to Peter Pan; this one is full of references to H.P. Lovecraft - including the Necronomicon, the dangerous book of arcane magicks. The Nameless City itself is very awesome and cool, though it also brings to mind Lovecraft's use of strange and odd descriptions that make a place seem very off-center.I don't want to spoil how the Doctor and Jaime escape because it was novel - and a highlight of the story. But this was also a case where the Master, in his plot, actually helped the Doctor. If the TARDIS had remained in Victorian London, the Doctor would never have been able to get a "ton of gold" (literally). He might have been able to get the mercury - depending on how much he needed. But he would have had a very hard time getting the alien component Zeiton-7 needed to repair the TARDIS (in a process that's also way cool so I won't spoil it). But by sending the TARDIS to a planet where these components are as ubiquitous as salt water - the TARDIS can be repaired easily. You have to wonder if the Master ever really thinks his plots through. Anyway, this is an enjoyable mini-book. Recommended.

    Puffin continued its year-long celebration of Doctor Who earlier this year with the release of The Nameless City, a short story featuring the Second Doctor as portrayed by Patrick Troughton. Since I came to the show via the Ninth Doctor, I've never really had the opportunity -- or, frankly, the curiosity -- to learn more about his earlier incarnations until this year, when celebrations surrounding the show's fiftieth anniversary have led to the release of specials, short stories, and novels featuring the first eight Doctors. Prior to the release of this short story, I'd never heard of author Michael Scott -- but after reading his contribution to the 50th Anniversary celebrations, I'm thoroughly impressed with his style and imagination.Referred to as the "cosmic hobo," here the Second Doctor appears to be more whimsical than his predecessor, very suggestive of the childlike wonder Matt Smith is capable of bringing to the role as Eleven. Within the pages of Scott's story the Second Doctor is joined by long-time companion Jamie McCrimmon (played by Frazer Hines on-screen), an eighteenth-century Scotsman and one of the Doctor's longest-serving companions, appearing in well over one hundred episodes. I LOVE the idea of the Doctor having a long-term companion from a historical time period relative to whenever the show aired. The creative possibilities for introducing an eighteenth- or nineteenth-century native to not only future worlds but the twenty-first century and its people and technology are endless! It's an avenue I dearly hope the showrunners for New-Who consider, as I think it could breathe fresh life into this dearly-loved series.More so than in the case of Colfer's First Doctor story, I feel as though Scott has succeeded in writing a story that hits the right balance of appealing to New-Who fans while avoiding the temptation to project the show's later mythology onto one of the Doctor's first incarnations. This story very much feels as though it could be an episode of the show, different enough in tone and style to distinguish it from the reigns of Nine, Ten, and Eleven whom I know fairly well. *wink* The Archons were suitably creepy villains, and I loved the glimpse of the unnamed Master, operating in the shadows. If the Doctor and Jamie's on-screen relationship is half as interesting as I found it play out in this story, I definitely need to make time to become better acquainted with Patrick Troughton's Doctor. Very enjoyable!

    This is much better than the First e-short, A Big Hand For The Doctor. When Jamie brings the Second Doctor a book, he doesn't realise it will lead to terrible danger as the TARDIS is dragged to a glass city where the Archons want to get revenge on the Time Lords. It's a great adventure which feels very much like it belongs in the Second Doctor era. Jamie is characterised well, and Scott uses the medium to share some of his thoughts and they feel right. The moment the Second Doctor arrives it feels just like Troughton is on screen.Scott is clearly a big fan of the era. Scott does mess with a few things though, some of which is good and some not so good. The archons claim to be behind Time Travel which perhaps conflicts a little with "The Three Doctors" but is sort of acceptable. There's an appearance from (view spoiler)[ the Master(hide spoiler)] who of course never actually met the Second Doctor but only Jamie meets him here so it works rather well. Something that doesn't work so well is the TARDIS speaking records. The TARDIS has never ever done this and it doesn't fit very well in the book. There is also a link to the new series with there being a mention of a swimming pool somewhere in the TARDIS. All in all a great adventure for the Second Doctor and Jamie, a little rushed perhaps but on the whole a great short read.

    Well, that's more like it. I had the same problem with this one that I had with the last one (A Big Hand For the Doctor), in that I'm not really all that familiar with the Second Doctor, but in terms of the actual story itself (the villains, the plot, the writing, the atmosphere, etc), Michael Scott's venture into the world of Doctor Who seems to me to be the superior offering. He also seems to have gotten his version of the Doctor's world to a more consistent place than Colfer did, what with Colfer's strange references to Harry Potter and such (yes, technically the First Doctor would have known about it, but it didn't feel true to the spirit of that version of the character).This one brings back The Master (in disguise as Professor Thascalos) and the Archons, who I'm hoping will eventually make an appearance in the new series one of these days. I also really liked Jamie as the Doctor's companion. Refreshing to have a dude after so many of New Who's young nubiles (not that I'm complaining, because I love Rose and Martha and Amy and Rory, but Donna is my favorite companion and she can't really be considered young or nubile, and Jack and Wilf were great, too).

    The Nameless City begins with Jamie on an errand for the Doctor, after the TARDIS breaks down for some unspecified reason (not at all unlike episode one of Vengeance on Varos) and traps the Doctor and Jamie in 1960’s London. Whilst on this errand Jamie comes across a man who appears to being mugged by a thug, and who hands him a book as thanks for helping him. Jamie takes the book back to the TARDIS and all hell breaks loose, almost literally. This is a much better story than the first Doctor story, and is a lot more enjoyable and in keeping with the era that it was set in and in the characterisation of the regular characters. I found the Doctor in this to be pretty much like the second Doctor should be and you could pretty much imagine this story to actually be a proper second Doctor story. Gallifrey and the Time Lords are mentioned in this story which is a little bit out of keeping with the original era this is set much earlier than the first mention of the Doctor's race, and of their home planet, in the canon, but other than that I really enjoyed this little foray into sixties Who, and the little cameo of a future nemesis of the Doctor!

    Michael Scott's either a fan, or has done his homework. The Doctor and Jamie are pitch-perfect. The interplay between them feels straight out of a classic episode. Jamie once again gets them into trouble, but only because of his big heart and Highlander sense of honour. The underplayed appearance of Thascalos (Google it if you're not quite sure... ) is a great foreshadowing of things to come. The story could never have been realised on restricted 60s technology and budgets, but the tone is spot on. I would have liked to have seen one of the Second Doctor's female companions - the story could have done with a bit of a woman's touch, with male characters dominating - and you get the feeling this could have been a great start to a much bigger story, but I guess they're limitations of the format. After Eoin Colfer's lazy and unlovable opening instalment in this 50th anniversary series I can imagine readers not progressing further. Thankfully this contribution raises the bar considerably, and leaves you wanting more...

    A tale of the 2nd Doctor, the Nameless City, the origins of the TARDIS and I wanted to shout "show don't tell" at least 57 times during this book. Still, it was fun, entertaining, not great, but good.

    Much better than A Big Hand for The Doctor, though not quite as good as the brilliant An Angel's Kiss.. book written by Justin Richards. Still, worth a read - and it made me gasp early on when Scott introduced - or should that be, re-introduced, an old name from the past.

    As I stated before in my first review of the Doctor Who 50th anniversary short stories, I haven’t seen the original Doctor Who episodes, besides the one. So I can’t comment on the fact if the author did a good job describing and capturing the essence of the main characters.But I can however review the story. First of all, I’m not familiar with the author, don’t know him, haven’t read a book he wrote. Sorry about that, if you have any recommendations, just let me know. I liked the story, but I thought the principle was that these short stories where written for children. Now, because I read a lot of fantasy, sci-fi and such I am familiar with the Necronomicon. Isn’t that a bit to adult and too scary for kids? Don’t get me wrong, it worked in the story, but I did have my moments about it when I read it. I loved the fact that the Tardis gets a huge part of this story, although I found the solution to repair her a bit easy. It’s nice to know where the Tardis originally came from. And in this case I found my lack of knowledge about the old Doctor Who series bothering me. I don’t know if a lot of the stuff explained in the story is originally from the series or that it’s made up.Big shout out to another Time-Lord reference! And of course the music of the spheres! That I do know!One thing, and I had the same with the first story, is that they all feel a bit rushed. I know they are short stories, but it feels sometimes important things are left out in order to keep the pages to a minimum, this story more than the first one.I give it an 8 out of 10. I liked the story, although it didn’t appeal so much to me as the first one. For a new whovian it’s sometime confusing reading about the older Doctors and not knowing who they were. Guess I have to catch up on my classics and maybe after that re-read these short stories.

    Real rating: 3.5This is the second story in my compillation/anthology/whatever you wanna call it, and it's exceedingly better than the first. But, you know, I still didn't think it was "perfect" or anything :PThis story is long enough for a short one (it's way longer than Eoin Colfer's, for sure), and this time WE ACTUALLY HAVE A PLOT!!!!Jamie (the 2nd Doctor's companion) was just walking down the street, minding his own business (actually, on an errand for The Doctor) when he sees a robbery happen at a bookstore. He jumps to action and basically kicks the guy's ass, and as a token of his appreciation, the owner of the place gives him an old book.But the book (as well as the owner) is not what it seems, and we are soon imerged in a Thor 2: The Dark World uh... City.No, but really. We're introduced to a new villain who really reminds me of the Eather, a world/city which also reminds me of Svartalfheim and just... the entire "theme" reminds me of that movie. Also, it reminds me of H.P Lovecraft, so there's that too.What I didn't like, though, was the middle part. The beginning is interesting and it keeps you reading, but the middle is supposed to be the best/juiciest part of any story and this middle was pretty "meh". Nothing was happening, they hadn't even found the enemies yet. It was only towards the ending when things got REALLY interesting, and shit was about to hit the fan when...The Doctor and Jamie escaped unscathed. Without... even... fighting. Or even having a battle of wits or something.Yeah, maybe I was expecting Marvel way too much. My bad. And I'm also not familiar with the 2nd Doctor either, so maybe that's his M.O when there is a conflict? Who knows. Either way, those are my only complaints.

    Ok, so the second doctor is a vast improvement from the first doctor's story. For one thing, the main perspective of the story is from Jamie. Ok, so I've never seen these episodes either but I do know that Jamie is one of the most well known companions of the second doctor. Because the perspective was through Jamie, it felt more relatable and we could understand it better as Jamie is human like us. So anyway, the story is a lot more entertaining as it has a clear beginning, middle and end. It involves realistic aliens, The Archon, and the city could be pictured within the wild imaginations of our brains. However, there are a couple of points that annoyed me a tad. One was who was the old man and what was his purpose. Unless I didn't understand it, he kind of disappeared never to be seen again. The Doctor just says oh we'll see him again one day but c'mon that's not fair! And apparently the Timelords stole mechanism of the TARDIS or whatever from the Archons. I dont know for some reason that bothered me.I really did feel like I was reading Patrick Troughton and I even went to watch clips of him after cause I found him entertaining. What I want from these stories is for them to feel like doctor who and for the doctor and his companions to be real. And this story did just that. If you're a fan, this is definitely worth the read.

    Poderia uma mistura entre horror lovecraftiano e excentricidade whoviana resultar? Talvez, mas para isso seria necessário alguém mais talentoso do que o escritor encarregue do terceiro volume da colecção que celebra os onze Doctor Who. Neste uma elaborada armadilha na Londres vitoriana coloca nas mãos do Doutor o infame necronomicon, cujo poder permite a uma Tardis avariada viajar no tempo e espaço até ao planeta dos Archons, raça arquetípica exterminada pelos senhores do tempo e cujos sobreviventes pretendem reescrever o passado para poder dominar o universo. Para isso precisam de uma Tardis, mas no último momento o engenho do Doutor impede-as de regressar ao passado e levar a cabo os seus nefandos planos. Estas criaturas de pesadelo são directamente inspiradas nos grandes anciães de Lovecraft, sendo a mais poderosa um clone descarado de uma certa divindade tentacular adormecida sob os oceanos cujo nome não deve ser pronunciado. O conceito é prometedor, mas a narrativa apressada e pouco inspirada não o leva onde poderia. E talvez, por questões de propriedade intelectual, legalmente não poderia ir muito mais longe do que onde foi.

    No offence to Michael Scott as this is good, possibly even great; but would anyone else join with me in saying that as we have Troughton (in my opinion the funniest Doctor ever) combined with the Cthulhu Mythos this one could have been done even better by Charles Stross?+++++My reviews of other works in the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary E-Shorts series:1.

    This is the second short novel in the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Short E-Books series. This one is called The Nameless City. It was wrote by hit author Michael Scott! This book focuses on the Second Doctor and Jamie McCrimmon. At first I wasn't sure if I was going to continue with this series but after this one I sure will be carrying on with this series.First off this book is a massive improvement then the first instalment! The book maybe not that fast pacing but its not a whole lot better then the previous novel. The storyline seemed more intriguing and also I liked the Second Doctor better then the first.The book is about Jamie gets given a mysterious old book of an old man and gives it to the Doctor not knowing what's inside. The TARDIS is currently stranded on Earth in London and they can't go anywhere until they have fixed the TARDIS. Suddenly while going through the book the TARDIS is moving, how can this be possible? Both the Doctor and Jamie have no idea where they are going but in fact they are going to the Nameless City, but why on earth are they going there!? Who wants them?The book is a good read but there is still room for improvement!
