August Books 15) No Future, by Paul Cornell

I loved this. The Doctor, Ace and Benny arrive in England in 1976 and team up with UNIT, to discover the person behind their recent set of misadventures is none other than the Meddling Monk, posing as Richard Branson - surely rather bold to put this in a book published by Virgin? Lots of hilarious nods to contemporary music and TV, including a great scene with the Goodies (one of whom, of course, actually appears as the Meddling Monk in recent Who audios), and also a deft merging of the continuity of both televised Who and the Virgin New Adventures. I couldn't really recommend this to non-fans, but I can heartily recommend it as a good sample of the Virgin range for Old Who fans who haven't tried the books yet.
