"Baxter nails one of the basic elements of any book like this one, capturing the voices of his three main characters with such precision that Troughton is almost audible in the Doctor's lines."--"The A.V. Club"
"Baxter has created almost the perfect "Doctor Who" novel: it stays true to the era in which it is set; it's understandable for an intelligent child but not dumbed down for adults; it "feels" like something we could have seen on TV, even though the production designer would have had a heart attack and--most importantly--it never feels cliched or corny...It works as good "Doctor Who.".. and as a solid science-fiction tale. Highly recommended."-- "TimeVault"
"Baxter creates a near pitch-perfect evocation of Team TARDIS...[He] takes full advantage of the limitless scale and budget afforded by the reader's imagination."--"Blogtor Who"
"A return to epic adventure."--SFcrowsnest
