Just when I had almost forgotten how much Amy annoyed me when series 5 first began, along comes The Forgotten Army by Brian Minchin. To me, this story had the least appealing hook of the first three eleventh Doctor books. Sure a giant frozen mammoth coming back to life in a New York museum is a bit interesting, but didn’t have the same draw to me as Apollo 23 or Night of the Humans did. Was there enough here to save the book from a dose of obnoxious Amy? Read on and find out.

Once again, I found myself intrigued by the title of one of the new BBC eleventh Doctor books. Just what exactly was this Night of the Humans by David Llewellyn all about? One thing’s for sure it was another enjoyable read.
