Top Contributor: Doctor WhoTOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICEon 8 November 2007
Another prose adventure for the ninth doctor who, along with rose tyler and captain jack. Like all of these, this runs to a little over two hundred and fifty pages, and has fairly large print, and all ages can read and enjoy it.

In this story a distress call brings the tardis to the frozen north of russia, in a small settlement by an old military base. something is killing the locals, causing them to age to death. can the doctor find what lurks beneath the sea?

a fascinating setting but the story never quite comes to life. the supporting characters all have their moments, but none really stand out that much, and the tardis crew all feel very muted. Despite a scary and suprising twist one hundred pages in, this turns into a very conventional tale of hidden alien objects and mad scientists and is all resolved in a rather hasty manner.

The afterword reveals the title came from a typeset used for the doctor who logo. This is not a bad book, but it feels overfamiliar and I think there's a better story to be made from that title
