February Books 11) The Adventuress of Henrietta Street, by Lawrence Miles

A remarkable Eighth Doctor adventure, rather horrible and misjudged in some places, striking and memorable in others; set in 1783; the Doctor gets married to a Tantric courtesan, slightly foreshadowing River Song; there are dubious scenes with Caribbean zombies and other cult practices; the Master makes a cryptic appearance; the whole thing is told in the tone of an excited but somewhat baffled historical researcher; Phil Sandifer's parodic review is a better and quicker read.
