Some people should stick to editing a Doctor Who novel range, rather than writing for that range. This is a novel so hollow and shallow I'm surprised it made it to the printing press. Former New Adventures editor Peter Darvill-Evans has written three less-than-stellar Doctor Who novels over the years...and this one is by far the most ghastly. Avoid, if possible.

Poor writing, bad characterization, entirely tepid and unbelievable love-at-first-sight romance, and an almost misogynistic view of woman who are seen as little but objects of lust and victims. If this weren't part of a series that interests me, I would surely have put it down halfway done.
Good idea for a story, I just wish it was written better.
