really liked it

My ratings: 3.5/4 stars.

Drinking game idea; drink how many times Professor Chronotis was references to as a 'Nice old man'.

I've listened to the big finish Shada audio version last year and have seen the remaining live episodes and the animation for it so it was nice to read it in a book format.

It was as camp as you expect it to be coming from a Douglas Adams book and Gareth Roberts writing. I liked the insights you didn't get in the audios or the T.V serials and I LOVED the time-lord insults. Salyavin basically saying; "FUCK YOU TIMELORDS. I CAN DO WHAT I WANT." Gives me life.

Also sneaky reference to Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy.

Very enjoyable read and I love Romana in this.
