March Books 7) Strange England, by Simon Messingham

It was interesting to read this Seventh Doctor novel at the same time as the new Fourth Doctor audio The Renaissance Man, in that both involved Victorian-ish settings which turn out to be in some way representations of an inner space. This was apparently Messingham's first book, but it's a good combination of insect horror, worlds within worlds, and a new figure from the Doctor's Gallifreyan past which casts a new light on his motivations. Ghost Light with mind projections, perhaps. One of the more memorable ones.
