In the what would seem months without my Doctor Who fix, I have been waiting for this book for a long time. And at last I got it, and I'm happy to say I was not dissapointed in the slightest. The Doctor is yet again in the right place, at the wrong time. But makes the most of it and with the help of his secret undercover companion, the two of them help to stop the Autons and the Nestene Consciousness from taken over the Earth once again.

It was great to see the Autons again, but I was unimpressed from early on in the book with way too much contrivance in the plot. The characters were shoddy, the Doctor's characterisation was way over the top and didn't fit the situations.
Less action seens with more detail and content would have served better than the repeated dashing about blowing up Autons and running from Autons which filled up a lot of the book.
The climax was thoroughly dreadful. It isn't even really explained, the Doctor saves the day with a MacGuffin he retroactively inserts into the plot. Cheap, nasty and forgettable.

The storyline is just basically like "Rose" but more expanded, and it's a good one. The Autons are cool in the story, but the other characters aren't described very well, and also the Doctor is not really a Tenth Doctor.
But after all, it's okay. Could be better, could be worse
