5.0 out of 5 stars Very memorable, 26 Jan 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Wages of Sin (Paperback)
This is a very thought-provoking book from one of the masters of Doctor Who fiction, David A. McIntee. Having cut his teeth in the world of the New Adventures, and produced the first (and so far only) Doctor-less novel in the new BBC range, he now unites two companions we only wish could have met on screen, Professor Elizabeth Shaw and Jo Grant, alongside their Doctor. Liz gets to travel somewhere in the TARDIS at long last, although with typical navigation from the Doctor, having only just regained his memory of time-travel, they end up a few hundred miles, and just short of a decade off-course, in Russia towards the end of 1916. Deep in the grip of the Great War, Russia's public are concerned about the Tsarina's attachment to a holy man, known as Grigory Rasputin. Like Titanic, we all know how the story is going to end, but the journey makes this book so much better. Having the travellers trapped while around them the situation comes to a head, and knowing they cannot change events, no matter how much they disagree with them, helps build the tension. David manages to show both sides of Rasputin, once said to be the most evil man in the world, and really makes you think about how things might have been different had he lived. I highly recommend this book to anyone with even a passing interest in Doctor Who, and real fans will find this a good example of the heights to which the BBC range can reach.
