It's easy to forget how long doctor who has been around for, and that Ian and Barbara are people from the 1960's. So what would they make of our modern world?
An intriguing opening shows just that as the tardis arrives in modern london. But it's not quite the london we know. A world ravaged by war has new hope thanks to the discovery of time travel. But as with everything, there are consequences...
An excellent recreation of the style of stories that the original tardis crew faced, all of whom are well characterised, this is a very clever and intriguing bit of work which really gets to grips with the fact that the tardis crew travel in time and the effect this has on the universe around them. And to say much more would spoil it.
You have to work hard in the middle as there's an awful lot going on, but it's worth it. And there are some excellent surprises to be had near the end. A terrific read and highly recommended
