Enjoyable but unspectacular adventure,
This review is from: Doctor Who: Last Man Running (Mass Market Paperback)
Chris Boucher's first Doctor Who novel finds the 4th Doctor and Leela becoming unwittingly involved in the birth of an interplanetary revolution when they stumble into an alien biological weapons testing site. Boucher handles the regulars well (as he should being Leela's creator), and some bickering class divided investigators bring to mind the relationships he explored with the Sandminer crew in Robots of Death. The plot is generally enjoyable, but the emphasis seems all wrong, with a rather rushed finale and the story of the revolution being underwritten. Some good action scenes and a fast easy pace make this a mostly enjoyable if undemanding read. Flawed, but not too bad.
