by Jim Mortimore
In some ways this feels like a dry run for Mortimore's later, superior novel Campaign, what with the universal reboots. I liked the stuff about Young Benny, but I don't feel like what we see of Earth here fits well with what other Doctor Who sources tell us about this century. There's a lot of big, audacious ideas in it, but I don't so much like them as feel as if I ought to be liking them. A weird book that doesn't really hit its target... whatever that might have been.
