February Books 13) Blood Harvest, by Terrance Dicks

This was one of the first New Adventures that I read, back in 2006, but I'm glad that I stuck to my decision to include it as I read the series in order. It is slightly better than I remembered; possibly I enjoyed it more because I now see it in the context of the previous 27 novels in the series and also I have re-watched both State of Decay and The Five Doctors, on which it leans pretty heavily, a couple of times in the interim. It was interesting to read this so soon after Lavie Tidhar's Osama, which mingles the noir genre with The Man in the High Castle rather than with Time Lords and Space Vampires, and is marginally the better book.
