Book Description

2 April 2001
In Anterctica, nearly fifty years after the end of World War 2, Nazi Initiates inhibit a secret base; around them move the shadows and reflections of strange, Imp-like figures...The village of Turelhampton in Dorset is still a restricted military zone, cordoned off from the outside world. When a rogue film-crew breaks in, welrd damons, invisible to the naked eye, appear on camers...And in a remote country-house in Cornwall, a freelance investigative journalist is horrified to discover neo-Nazis performing an occult ritual involving a functional, accurate, crystal ball - the Scrying Glass. And in the background, the figure of Hilter watching, exactly as he appears in the last pictures of him alive...What really did happen in the Berlin bunker in 1945, when Hitler and Eva Braun supposedly committed joint suicide? And what connection does this have with the uncanny imps that can be seen only in reflections and shadows? Why is it so imperative that no-one discover the secret of Turelhampton? It is up to the Doctor and the faithful Brigadier to find out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Is Hitler alive? 5 May 2001
Investigating a series of strange events, the Brigadier pulls out a long unused device which sends a signal to the Doctor - in this case, in his sixth incarnation. What is the mystery that unites a spaceship shot down over England in 1944, strange demonic figures hidden in the shadows, and the final fate of Adolph Hitler?
Apparently written in three weeks when another book became unavoidably delayed, this book unites the current and previous editors of BBC's Doctor Who line of novels in a surprisingly well thought-through that combines fact and fiction into a coherent whole, while containing several plot twists that you probably won't see coming.
There is something about British writers which results in Hitler being portrayed as something more than just an evil dictator - and this book is no different. The combination of extreme disgust and morbid fascination adds some fuel to the already volatile mixture.
For a book of its pedigree (which would be a hastily bred mongrel), this is surprisingly good.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Coming Of Shadows... 7 April 2001
By A Customer
As the book that shouldn't have been, The Shadow In the Glass may have been a disappointment, as it is it's amazing that something this good could have been produced in such a short time.
The Sixth Doctor books always tend to be good, but this one goes to the next level and is a contender for the title of the best Past Doctor Adventure that the BBC have published.
The characterisation of the Doctor and the Brigadier is spot on, the story is good, the writing is excellent and Justin Richards and Stephen Cole have produced a superbly entertaining book.
Unquestionably brilliant, this book is fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best "past Doctor" book ever 4 May 2001
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An excellent pairing of the sixth Doctor and the Brig. Brilliant plot. Couldn't put the book down.

It's nice to have a straightforward and lucidly written novel in this series; the complexity of some of them precludes the casual reader from investing, but this is great from start to finish. The Sixth Doctor and Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart are finally brought together, and they make a solid team - despite the Brig's advancing years. The mystery surrounding the seeming reappearance of Adolf Hitler from beyond the grave is well plotted and engrossing, although the token extra-terrestrials disappoint a little. Overall though a great adventure tale and a worthy addition to the ever-expanding Whoniverse.
