I did quite enjoy this book despite not being the biggest fan of the Sylvester McCoy era Dr Who TV series which seems to have suffered from numourous bits of BBC meddling and a comedy flair added to by various 'guest stars'
I therefore maybe came to this book with low expectations but to fair the book presents a Doctor that the TV series of the time may have found worked better than their incarnation...the Doctor is manipulative to the core is resident with his usual eccentricities and is actually (as he should be) a fascinating central figure within the book...the writing itself is smart and although maybe sometimes a little too clever it works well and a story is presented beyond the scope of the TV treatment of the TV years..it's a quirky book and very readable.
