i have always loved the mind robber from the classic who series, and reading that this book was pretty much a sequel to this made me pick it up thinking it would be great. But its just pretty bland actually. There are a few good moments, such as when the time travellers escape from the land of fiction, and when the doctor meets the new master, but apart from that, most of the rest of the story is pretty dull. i dont even know why the adventure kids are in this story for, they dont even do anything much apart from scream and run around. and most of the other characters are not much better. and ace and benny spend most of the time fighting over how bad the doctor has supposedly become, but i feel theyre just as bad. and most of the story the doc gets nothing to do either. not quite as bad as winner takes all, but still pretty poor.

Steve Lyons makes a valiant attempt to tap into what made the original Doctor Who series so special and almost succeeds. An old enemy of the Doctor’s – The Master of the Land of Fiction – is once again attempting to ensnare him in the land of fiction, but this time as the new master.
Ace and Benny find themselves hunting a murderer amongst a host of strangely one-dimensional characters and nearly get themselves killed in the process. This novel actually reads better as an old-fashioned whodunit of the Miss Marple / Midsomer Murders variety and despite Lyons' best efforts it fails to take the reader anywhere new.
