    1 thought on “Iris Wildthyme and the Celestial Omnibus

    1. Iris Wildthyme is a sort of a fun house mirror reflection of the Doctor Like him, she s an eccentric traveller in time and space However, in so many other respects, she s completely the opposite bawdy, boozy, and, of course, female She travels in a Number 22 London double decker bus, and her faithful companion is a stuffed panda A walking, talking, stuffed panda If you like your Doctor Who fiction smart, silly, camp, and self referential, you ll love this book If you don t, you ve probably been [...]

    2. Iris Wildthyme, a transdimensional time traveller who journeys universes and histories, drinking gin and having adventures, in a red double decker bus that s erm slightly smaller on the inside than it probably should be She has had companions on her travellers, some of whom still tolerate a visit from the mad old bat, and her current partner in crime is a sentient stuffed panda, called Panda She might sound like a twisted version of another fictional time traveller, and indeed, was first introdu [...]

    3. Very nice collection of stories I especially enjoyed the ones that generously reference other Who lore highlights include a sequel to The Two Irises that ties into the Forge arc, a Torchwood send up about aliens in Darlington not quite as glamorous as Cardiff , an adventure most definitely not about the Master, and a beautiful bit at the end that felt like an homage to This Town Will Never Let Us Go and stars Fi ahem, Fritz.

    4. For those who don t know, Iris Wildthyme was originally a character who appeared in the Doctor Who novel The Scarlet Empress Whilst most would presume this book to be the first novel of a Doctor Who spin off series, Iris Wildthyme and the Celestial Omnibus shows that Iris is capable of shouldering an independant series of her own.The links to Doctor Who are present in the anthology, but it will take a trained eye to spot the references as you read through the wonderful selection of short stories [...]

    5. I do love Iris She s just brilliant Who wouldn t want to be a female temporal adventuress drinking gin and saving the universe The short story collections are quite fun, not all the stories are the same quality but overall they are enjoyable enough to make it worthwhile buying My favourites in this one were the very silly ones about the Dogs Playing Poker and the Battlestar Galactica spoof I also loved the slightly serious ones that built upon folklore stories, like the owl and the gypsey girl [...]

    6. An eclectic mix of tales making light hearted fun of a long running, popular British sci fi show Iris is a character with enough personality to virtually walk off the page There s plenty of tongue in cheek references and nothing is taken too seriously.That said, some of the stories seem to have weight and meaning than you might expect from such a collection It s inevitable that some will appeal than others and I certainly found a couple of favourites Conversely, others seemed to drag and not e [...]

    7. Iris Wildthyme is one of those characters I can see how she s not the cup of tea for some readers.I for one adore her and love Panda just as much.It s hard to rate an anthology with an overall score as there are so many stories of varying degrees of enjoyment.For the most part, the authors got Iris and Pand s voices which, in my mind, are dictated by their characterisations in the Big Finish audios , which is a big plus.A solid first release for Obverse Books and I am looking forward to starting [...]

    8. Solid first collection of Iris Wildthyme stories by Obverse Books She runs the gamut here, from brash and clever, to loyal and loveable, to tipsy train wreck often all within the same story Standout stories with lots of depth or just loads of LOLs by Mags L Halliday, Paul Magrs, Steven Wickham, Jonathan Dennis and Stewart Sheargold.
