Second paragraph of third chapter:
'I was sorry to leave the pre-fab,' he continued stoically, 'but since Mags went, well... didn't need so much space. Got a bedsit, now. You know.'
At the height of the Arthur C. Clarke shortlisting, I rather dropped out of the habit of blogging my reading of the older Doctor Who novels here; I don't have Thoughts about very many of them, but I may revisit one or two in days to come. Anyway, new term, time to start again perhaps with this story uniting the Sixth Doctor and the Brigadier in investigating the true facts of alien involvement in the death of Adolf Hitler. It's generally well-researched, but there is a little bit of a sense of historical box-ticking, and a particularly egregious fridging at the end.

Yeah, I felt much the same about it - and the fridging was particularly egregious.

I've been working my way through the BBC Past Doctor Who books over the last couple of years (they've been sitting on my shelf unread for 10 years since I got a job lot at an Eastercon) and alas I've found them a pretty unremarkable lot on the whole; at least half-a-dozen I've abandoned unfinished.
