This is the fourth Doctor Who novel I've read and is by far the best so far. This is partly due, no doubt, to the fact that the 4th Doctor is undoubtedly the best Doctor in my opinion and will always remain so. The fact that his companion, Romana(the 2nd Romana in my imagination, you know, the blonde with the pink Doctor's outfit) is also from Galifrey and a Time-Lady herself and is the Doctor's equal in almost every way just puts the cherry on top for me. The story itself is by Gareth Roberts but was an original TV script that didn't air at the time due to industrial action and was written by none other than Douglas Adams, so things really don't get any better than this as far as I can see.
I loved this novel. I loved the 4th Doctor. I loved the 2nd Romana. Think I'm going to have real trouble finding another Doctor Who novel that even comes close now.
Fantastic. A very well deserved 5 stars.
