Very much a fourth doctor novel and also a douglas adams theme too,
This review is from: Doctor Who: Festival of Death: 50th Anniversary Edition (Paperback)
Like Shada (Which I had to say that shada is awsome book and you shoud read it) Festival of Death is another winner by letting your mind goe off form the real world and treat this book as if this was an doctor who episode you're watching and in the end you'll probably say fantasic. Yeah I might treat my copy of this book as another class doctor who story like the pyramids of mars or Genesis of the Daleks. But I might be too sure that's where steven moffat got his idea form this book and became one of the best writers of the show.
I don't want to revail too much of the plot which would even spoil your mood for getting this one and you would probably change your mind on ignoring it. OH NO, I DON'T WANT THAT. Well I can say that the story is very good and the characters are enjoyable (mine's is Hoopy), but what about the villains. Like I said I am not going into that either. As you'll read it, you'll be at the edge of your sits wondering how can this be and saying that's impossible that later on in the book all the answers are revailed. And everything all makes sense in the end as they are all been explored. But if they don't this book would have been horrible and I would get rid of it and give it away to someone else by never keeping this as a treasure.
Another thing I could say that it's nice for the BBC to reprint those books for people like me to have the chance to read them to keep them as a collection for the 50th Anniversary and start off which one we would like to read by picking our favourite Doctor.
So my final result is: Go get it. And I would give 10/10.
