The second Doctor Who book I've ever read - the first was Genesis of the Daleks when I was about 10 years old. It's based on TV episodes from 1963 and originally published in 1964, though there was a film version starring Peter Cushing and Roy Castle which I vaguely remember as well!

It's not a bad book, though it lacks the flippant comments and off-the-cuff humour that The Doctor has taken on over the years. It's quite a simple story and for someone who really jumped onto Doctor Who at a late age, raises more questions than it answers. I won't mention them here for fear of spoilers.

Still, a nice small book that I could blast through quickly and which will find itself being donated to the school library at the start of term.
