another novel adventure for the tenth doctor who and his companion martha jones. like all of these books it's about two hundred and forty five pages long, in reasonably large print, and is generally written for slightly younger readers but all ages can enjoy.
In this story an off course landing brings the tardis onto a planet called sunday. the place has some very big swampland, and human colonists are struggling to establish themselves there. Not least because there's something strange in the swamp.
The prose is readable and the main characters are well written. There's a lot more of the jokey doctor than the serious side he usually shows, but some scenes are written from the point of view of supporting characters, and these work brilliantly in showing what the doctor is like. And some of these characters are very well written and quite likeable.
The plot takes a few good twists and turns, and I didn't predict all of it. The finale is satisfying. And the last scene is great. This is an above average entry in the range
