About Quick Reads:

"I've been lucky enough to write two Quick Reads, Doctor Who: The Sontaran Games in 2009 and Doctor Who: Magic of the Angels in 2012. Quick Reads is a wonderful initiative providing short, easy-to-read books for people who struggle to find the time for longer works or find them daunting. They aim to open up the world of words for those who've forgotten or never knew how much fun reading can be.

"I have a special reason to love Quick Reads. A few years ago, during a particularly bad bout of ill health, I found myself too unwell to read. This lasted for several months, and as someone who has spent almost every spare second reading for as long as I can remember, it was incredibly frustrating. Then one day my husband came home with a copy of Chickenfeed, a Quick Read by one of my favourite authors, Minette Walters. Slowly, page by page in my sick bed, I managed to get through it. The realisation that reading wasn't lost to me after all is something I'll always be grateful to Quick Reads for."

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Two stories in one really. The first half of the book concerns a trial between the Doctor and the Darksmith collective, with a judge from the Shadow Proclamation, which I'd heard of but knew little about and still don't. hat is entertaining and moves the story on a bit with a twist, but the second half of the book is more normal, with the Doctor trying to identify and catch a monster in modern London. Interesting and inventive, but that part was another tangent to the main story.

I have bought and read all the books in the series and find them a really good read.
The ongoing story through all the books is very good as is the adventure in each book.
