May Books 10) The Dimension Riders, by Daniel Blythe

A Seventh Doctor novel in the New Adventures series, featuring a renegade Time Lord disguised as the head of an Oxford college and equipped with a killer android who he is using to execute the sinister plans of his horrible ally. Not quite as good as that description sounds; there are some very graphic battle sequences in the future space station to which the 1993 Oxford setting has a mysterious link, and some nice nods to Gallifreyan continuity, but it's a bit like trying to rewrite Shada as a slightly more coherent and violent novel. Decent enough but not top of the range.
