July Books 17) Conundrum, by Steve Lyons

Steve Lyons is always interesting if not always completely successful, and this Seventh Doctor novel is a great idea which is not perfectly executed. The Tardis, with Benny and Ace, lands in an English village where mysterious things are afoot, but what appears at first to be a murder mystery turns out to be a return to a situation from the Doctor's past. This was Lyons' first Who novel (indeed, I think his first published work), and his prose style is still a tad unpolished in places with too many characters jostling for attention. But the core idea is audacious enough to make this one well worth reading.

I can't believe that you won't have seen this, but just in case: Doctor Who tube map.

It is great, though they've left out the Master's appearance in Logopolis!
