I love the BBC and British mysteries, but my tastes are very eclectic. I live with my husband and menagerie of rescued cats and dogs.
I have over twenty Doctor Who novels in my library, and this is easily one of my favorites, even above some narrated by one of the "real" doctors. The narrator here made each character very real, I quickly cared about the new characters as well as my old friends. It had a real sense peril that pervaded the entire novel. It was genuinely creepy in spots and had that edge of your seat suspense that many of the episodes did. One of the things that really put this one over the top for me, though, was how it also had the touching moments without ever being maudlin-- again like the best of the episodes. I could easily have seen this as an episode, in fact.
