This book started very s...l...o...w...l...y. The Doctor (the 6th Doctor, played on the series by Colin Baker) and Peri land on a planet that seems to be an idyllic garden with a red sun. However, there are no people around. And for at least fifty pages... nothing happens, because there are no people around.
Eventually the Doctor and Peri get separated and the TARDIS disappears from where the Doctor left it. Again, very typical and not that interesting.
So I put this book down for a LONG time... l

I didn't go in expecting much from this Sixth Doctor novel, but it was actually pretty good. An interesting setting and slate of original characters (particularly Glavis Judd), and a solidly characterized Doctor and Peri. There are some good mysteries and twists, too. My only quibble was with the ending, which seemed slightly too harsh (but maybe I'm just a softie). (B+)
