The Fourth Doctor 'all teeth and curls' and his companion Leela - a warrior from the tribe of Sevateem - investigate goings-on at a university campus somewhere in the UK in the present day.
Lively and fast-paced; this story suffers from a slightly disappointing denoument but remains a fun and worthwhile read.
The setting is well realised, the supporting characters are pretty good, but best of all is the atmosphere. There are attempts at scary moments in the writing, and they succeed. Far better than his first two efforts, this is good stuff
It is very good book, especially for foggy days, or autumn evenings.
The novel is basically a well crafted horror story set on a university campus, where investigations into parapsychology amongst the students seem to be causing a fault in the fabric of the multi-verse!
One of the reasons I liked this story so much was that Leela was really involved, often the companions can seem like spare parts, or simply a tool for the author to get the doctor into tricky situations. As with Bouchers other books, (last man running & Corpse Marker) Leela has a considerable proportion of the story told from her perspective.
If your a fan of the old style Target books, Hammer horror, Quatermass etc. then this is the one for you!
Leela is well written in this story, which is fitting as Boucher created her. I didn't think that the Doctor was used well; too much time was spent working around the campus.
