January Books 13) Shadowmind, by Christopher Bulis

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.
