Nicholas Whyte[return][return]The Sixth Doctor gets a bit more of a send-off at the start of this book than he did on TV, but that is not hard.

Nicholas Whyte[return][return]This is the first of the Bakers' novels, and sets a standard for what is to come - too many exclamation marks, not quite enough extra background to make sense, and a less than coherent plot (though better here than on screen).

The Rani was an interesting character. Too bad they didn't do more with her.
