Juno Dawson does something that hasn't been done since the 1966 story "The Ark": set a story in the same place, but suddenly jump forward several centuries to deal with unexpected complications. In this case, it's even better than that first attempt; it manages to consider the consequences of history far more than the second half of "The Ark", and it also includes some melancholy reminiscences about the legacy & responsibilities of the Time Lords. My only real issue is that the current line of books doesn't continue the complexity of the Virgin or BBC "Doctor Who" books , resulting in the original story forming only a prologue, when it would have been half of the entire novel in the good old days. Luckily, Juno Dawson moves mountains with the material she has, and even manages to throw in the most obscure "Four to Doomsday" reference as an Easter egg for the most hardcore fans. Very satisfying.
