This is a genuinely scary book about a village possessed by "something" for generations. There is not much new here, as the plot is a "Midwich Cuckoos" variation with some "Wicker Man" thrown in. But it is good fun. The authors have decided to go with the usual 7th Doctor characterization of a Time Lord on a mission that only he knows about.

Good old fashioned Horror Story...

The Doctor is portayed very much as the dark manipulator of Season 26. Unfortunately, Ace and the Doctor are separated for a considerable amount of the book. However, the water poisoning idea is good, and Kenny as a little boy at the beginning and end was a nice idea.

Good, but not great.

Excellent use of the Doctor and Ace. Nice continuity reference and good horror build-up.

Well what can I say a great read. A story set largely in a School and Village with Scarecrows as the monsters. Sound familiar? Did these guys get a credit?
The wild hunt what a concept excellent. Some of the drug stuff and Liverpool spoilt it a bit in my view but very enjoyable.
