A good, spooky Who story, one that you could easily imagine being an episode from the current series - indeed, it has a number of plot similarities with The Girl Who Waited which I suppose is coincidental. The actual plot, concerning a mysterious woodland in which people vanish without trace every sixty years, is allowed unusual primacy over the regular characters, with most of the viewpoints coming from inhabitants of the village near the woods. Very nice characterisation of the Doctor. I must say that in general this year's crop of Who novels have felt more assured than last year's.

I've recently finished the final one of last year's batch and it's interesting to see how well people catch the main characters' voices. I've not read one yet that gets all three right at the same time, but everyone can get at least one of them sounding plausible.
