September Books 22) Unnatural History, by Jonathan Blum and Kate Orman

This year's Who has taken a lot of liberties with Amy and her personal timeine - more than I can remember being taken with any previous TV companion, apart from some of the things that happened to Sarah Jane Smith in the SJA - so it's interesting to read an earlier example of this approach, with Sam Jones, the Doctor's companion for most of the 22 previous EDAs, suddenly transformed into a dark-haired version of herself who never left London. Meanwhile in San Francisco the Doctor and Fitz are dealing with the mysterious Faction Paradox, helped by an enigmatic Time Lord calling himself Daniel Joyce, and trying to set things back on track. gorgeously written in places, and managed to keep me very intrigued as to how the authors could possibly resolve the story in a satisfactory way. (They did.)
