A remarkable Eighth Doctor adventure, rather horrible and misjudged in some places, striking and memorable in others; set in 1783; the Doctor gets married to a Tantric courtesan, slightly foreshadowing River Song; there are dubious scenes with Caribbean zombies and other cult practices; the Master makes a cryptic appearance; the whole thing is told in the tone of an excited but somewhat baffled historical researcher; Phil Sandifer's parodic review is a better and quicker read.

Lawrence seemed to have read or misread a few sources and extrapolated wildly for effect, I thought... but it's been a long time.

Thats interesting as I read Miles non Who but really is novel, on advice and thought it was wonderful (Alien Bodies, that was it) and apparently mined by Moffat ever since..
