Doctor Who Extended Media Review – The Church on Ruby Road Novelization by Esmie Jikiemi-Pearson

The Church on Ruby Road by Esmie Jikiemi-Pearson is the Target novelization of the Fifteenth Doctor‘s debut story written by Russell T Davies for television.

The TV story was a great first adventure for the Fifteenth Doctor which did good service to both the Doctor and Ruby Sunday. For a review of the TV episode watch it here on our Whovian Academy YouTube channel. The novelization does not expand on the story like the best of the Target books accomplish. I cannot think of a single instance where there is expansion of the narrative from the TV story. The TV story 10 out of 10 but this novelization 8 out of 10.
