Reading Roundup Wrapup: October 2016

Pick of the month: Exodus by Terrance Dicks. On the one hand, pure hackwork... on the other hand, if you want great Doctor Who hackwork, hire Terrance Dicks. Not the best Doctor-Who-does-the-Nazis story (that's either Just War or one of Big Finish's Klein tales), but if you want the Doctor pretending to be a Nazi plus Hitler is secretly an alien but in a way much better than how they did it on The Tomorrow People, this is your book.
