This was my first time ever reading a Doctor Who novel and this book did not disappoint. I'd braced myself for a difficult read, full of techy explanations and UK references and such. Well, my jargon must be on point and as for my tech-skills... meh. Regardless, this was a brilliant and uncomplicated read.
The short story (The Death Pit) turned novel took place on the Fetch Brothers Golf Spa Hotel. Something vicious lurked about the grounds, swallowing golfers, creating telepathic fields (breaking up marriages through mind reading) and the loss of memory and information, practically people daft. The Doctor and his two companions, Putta Pattershaun 5, a fearful alien and wanna-be bounty hunter and Bryony Mailer, a bored stuck-in-limbo Junior Day Receptionist, set out to solve the monstrous mystery.
Their foe, a complex creature who's been around long since the beginning of our sense of time, is serpentine and ghastly and bewildering, the Doctor actually admits to being afraid. That's a major deal.
The quirkiness and comedy of this 70's setting keeps you turning page after page. It's fun, funny and oddly written- befitting of a Doctor Who story. You'll enjoy this book; go out and grab yourself a copy of Doctor Who's The Drosten's Curse.
Have a great day and an even better book! 📚
