A decent enough Seventh Doctor, Ace and Benny story, with human colonists wandering into an existing struggle between two alien entities. I didn't think Bulis quite got Benny in this one but he has an excellent Ace and good Doctor. A really good ending which would have made great TV especially for New Who, as the Bad Alien Entity is put out of action by an innovative use of a solar sail. Would be an OK book for Who fans who don't know the New Adventures, less useful for non-Who fans wanting to experiment.

This one felt to me like the Doctor plopped into your typical battling-aliens Hollywood blockbuster. This would be okay, and possibly even great, but instead of the Doctor upending the genre as he usually does, he seemed to change to fit it, so I was reading a fairly typical fighting-aliens movie, which is dull. The setting suits Ace well, though, resulting in some good characterization.
