New Verity! In which I experience a New Adventures novel.
It’s another bookish Extra! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we look at another first. This time it’s Russell T Davies’ first published Doctor Who work, his New Adventures novel Damaged Goods. This is another very grown-up-themed tome, and the Verities react as such. Some really enjoy it, others not as much. But as always, it’s a great discussion! (Though we do, necessarily, venture into some rather adult territory in the course of the discussion, so sensitive/young listeners may want to beware.)
Have you read this one? If so, what do you think of it? And can you see any RTD-isms poking up in this early work? Let us know in the comments!
