Virgins last Doctor Who novel (hence the high price) is also their only adventure to feature the 8th Doctor. Parkin gets a good handle on the character as performed by McGann in the US TV Movie, but the story is a very generic 'aliens invade Earth' romp. A few exciting scenes make this a reasonably enjoyable book, but its ultimately a big-budget Hollywood version of Doctor Who - short on brains, big on explosive action set-pieces. Pleasant, but a little underwhelming for a finale to a 61 book series.
