A solid story that never forgets that Fitz, Anji and the Doctor are the "stars of the show"! A story that truly pays homage to what I think WHO is all about while still beginning to explore the Doctor's new "humanity". A few more with this type of characterization and I might be able to appreciate the man called the Doctor as much as the Time Lord. Great read!
What more can I say. I absolutely loved this book. Silver by far was the best new villain I have seen in the 8th Doctor's new adventures. He was well written and was a very believable villain..in fact, it was hard to picture him as the villain until the facts spoke for themselves.
The Doctor/Anji plot really proved a strong point and it really strengthened their bond. Fitz, however, still needs work in my opinion. I think that either something needs to change in his character to make him much stronger or it is time for him to leave and new blood be introduced.
All in all this was a very enjoyable read. I look forward to them exploring the Doctor's new found "humanity" but hope that eventually he will get back to being the mysterious Time Lord we all grew up with.

I'm rather surprised reading the other reviews as I really didn't enjoy this book. It had some great ideas but I just felt bored by it. I havn't read many of the previously 8th Doctor books other than 8 Doctors, Endgame and Mad Dogs but it seemed that Anji's character was just dumb. She had become obsessed with her old boyfriend Dave's death and seemed to think that if she cloned him then it would be all right.
I skimmed this book towards the end, i havn't done that since primary school.
