It's just as well that I read Orwell's Homage to Catalonia a few months back, or I would have felt a bit unmoored in this Eighth Doctor story of the Spanish Civil War. There is a time-changing entity plot, but I found myself instead appreciating Halliday's recreation of the awfulness of the 1930s, with one Eric Blair wandering in and out of the story too. (Though for some reason the editor has decided that the famous street in Barcelona is the Rambles rather than the Ramblas, which gives it quite the wrong nuance.) The time-twisting bit ties into the wider Sabbath narrative which has so far failed to really interest me, but I liked the rest.

The original Catalan plural form would be Les Rambles, it's possible that he heard that.
