This review is from: Doctor Who: Trading Futures (Doctor Who S.) (Mass Market Paperback)
Clearly designed to be Doctor Who meets James Bond and it's certainly that, skillfully combining elements of the two. It all works wonderfully well and Lance Parkin, who usually writes engaging and entertaining Who, comes up with a fast moving plot, good versions of the regular characters, and just keeps throwing in delightful little twists and turns throughout. The novel starts with a bang and never lets up.
Sometimes maybe Mr Parkin is having too much fun for his own good and there is a slight silliness that more serious-minded readers may object to but if you enjoy both James Bond films of the 1960s and 1970s and the Eighth Doctor's regular novel-length adventures then this acts as the perfect cocktail of the two. You'll almost certainly be shaken and stirred.
BTW, it's not essential but if you read Parkin's earlier (and also brilliant) 'Father Time' before reading this then I think you'll get even more out of the experience.
