Doctor Who: The Sixth Doctor: Something Borrowed
by Richelle Mead

Probably the best feature of this installment of 12 Doctors, 12 Stories is that it's told in the first person, from the perspective of Peri. This is a pretty rare occurrence in tie-in fiction, and its deployment here is, I suspect, one of the benefits of hiring authors that aren't the usual tie-in suspects to pen this series. Mead captures Peri's voice well, and the story also features a return by 1980s villain the Rani, which evokes the right level of nostalgia for this project. Middle-of-the-road, but solid.

Next Week: The seventh Doctor and Ace face a universe without the Daleks in The Ripple Effect!
