Fourth Doctor. About as good as seeing the episode, and you don't have to grit your teeth against bad voice acting by Tom Baker. Atmospheric and deep in the first five chapters and the last couple (the rest is simple and cliche and doesn't explain confusing things in the show), although the author didn't really expand on or clarify anything that wasn't already in the episode. The usual handful of spelling errors, and some items appear out of nowhere. I wouldn't recommend it to a fan eagerly devouring the episodes (the show is better), but I would recommend it to a casual fan who found it much more convenient to get the novelisations than the shows.
