A different story appproach here, and a very well written third Doctor story. The gangsters can be a bit annoying at first, but trying to fit together what is happening and what role the Doctor and Sarah need to fufill because of a photograph, to prevent a greater tragedy, may make the book complicated but it is a brilliant read!

Starts slowly....

But then gets better. The East end gangsters are clichied as hell but the monsters are great. Very gory in places.

This is an exicellent book, The Doctor and sarah jane are spot on David bishop knows his era with out makeing them steriotipical. The relationship between Sarah jane and Tom Ramsey has to be one of the most beliveable in the entire book range. Tom Ramseys character is incerdible both amiable and ruthless and like all other main players in this story have depth and beliveability. The plot is a soud one and dose not fall into lifting moments from classic gangster films of the fiftys, sixtys although a few wouldnt feel too out of place in Get Carter or the The Krays. A very clever thing useing the pollution crisis of the London pea souper as a vehicle for alian invasion. The menaceing force of the story the Xhinn are more memorable than some of the aliens to come out of the range. To sum it up go out and buy it (or steal it of some one!) its worth the money

I cannot understand what the other reviewers saw in this book. The story is that Sarah spots a picture of the Doctor (3) taken in 1952 along with a news story about killer smog, and off they go back in time to prevent a catastrophe. This story is mostly an excuse to write a Doctor Who version of the John Carpenter movie The Fog or Stephen King's The Mist. It's poison miasma plus zombie policemen all run by a religiously fanatical trio of aliens whose ideology is convert or destroy. The plotting of the novel is rather thin, and it gets thinner as it goes along, unlike the smog so prominent in the story. Some good things about this novel, though, are that Sarah is rather well characterized and the author creates the 1950s London East End feel well.
