This is an excellent book. Terrence Dicks manages to create highly believable characters (e.g. Churchill). The Players of the title are mysterious and deserve another book, to develop their characters. Some great subtle (and some not so subtle) continuity references. A very simple plot is worked out very well and it even features a lengthy cameo by the 2nd Doctor! The Sixth Doctor's character seems to be rather mellower and calm than it was on TV which is probably a good thing, but it does make him harder to relate too as the 6th Doctor. Still, an excellent book and a quick, easy and lightweight read. I wish they all could be like this.
