The BBC Books imprint of the Doctor who Books focuses on longer books, a bit more adult than the Tv adaptations, and like any series of books, some are better than others.

The especially interesting thing about this book is the psychological stress on the Doctor in this situation. The Doctor usually wins and wins quickly--here he is imprisoned and really struggling to keep his mental "balance". I won't spoil it further with details. It is one of the best Dr. Who Novel's I have read and I've read a lot.

One particularly gripping scene is the Doctor's reaction after a failed escape attempt. Another prisoner , who joined in the Doctor's escape plan is killed, and the Doctor has a hard time dealing with it.
