My 13 year old son is heavily into Dr Who, but not much of a reader, so I brought him the first in the series of these books to try to encourage him to read more. I haven't been able to stop him reading since! He thinks the story is fantastic, he gets his "fix" of Dr Who and his reading has improved without him realising it. He takes them in the car, to school and even reads during breakfast. What a result!

Format: Paperback
Part of a series of ten in case you didn't know, and the penultimate. I'll try not to give too much away.
In this episode, the rather sad ending of the previous episode is quickly turned around by some revelations and some quick thinking, and develops into a lively and interesting story, where the protagonists, pursued by the Doctor, arrive on a mediaeval world. I liked the idea that the enemies were believed to be demons and the Doctor and assistant were witches. The theme carried on and gave a good angle, and I suspect was realistic for the time. The aliens are really grotesque in character and looks, and enlisting peasant children as a workforce made them even more scary. The ending left me eager for the continuation.
