Yes, pun intended in the title. But I mean, who could resist? This is the first part of a 3 part story covering both masters (within the big finish universe) and engaging three doctors (5,6, and 7). I’ve been enjoying the 5th doctor stories for while now so I’m intrigued to see what the story is like and how it unfolds over three episodes.
I’d been thinking about getting this book for a while now, so when I was in a book shop (not a common thing these days) I picked up this and ‘Leviathan Wakes’ at the same time. I haven’t started this, but I’m very curious to find out what it’s like. When I do I’ll tell you.
Not a massive surprise as it’s a mammoth task to put on this kind of event, and they’ve been doing it for some time now. I’ve been to a couple of these including last year’s event and they were always good. But it’s a real shame that they’re stopping, or at least pausing for now.
The Elephant and Castle event stopped a couple of years ago and I’m not sure if that’s coming back this year either. None of which is very good for anyone interested in the kinds of companies and groups that the maker faires attracted. Now there’s a real gap for this kind of event for both London and the South East. That’s not good, not in my book anyway.
The second volume of short trips was good too. It was the same format as the first. A range of stories covering the first 8 doctors. All good, some better than others of course. But overall, very enjoyable.
