August Books 32) The Pit, by Nigel Penswick

Gosh, this Seventh Doctor novel is pretty poor. Lots of good ideas, including William Blake, disappearing planets, Cthulhoid monstrosities and the secret history of Rassilon, but thrown together really hastily so that the reader must find some real motivation to make sense of it all, and I could not find that motivation.

The Pit
I really like that story. Its one of my favorite New Adventure stories. Very Lovecraftian, which is why I like it.

By common assent the worst of the NAs. However, as you say there are some great ideas in there. Lawrence Miles uses some of them in his faction paradox writing later.
