The Scales of Injustice seems to have a rather mediocre premise when looking at it from far away. Its main purpose that is pointed to is continuity between Season 7 and 8 and about Warriors of the Deep. Even though, yes this is the case, it's not why this book is excellent.

This book provides an excellent insight into all the main characters from Season 7, especially looking into Liz and the Brigadier and how their home lives are affected by U.N.I.T and it goes into very serious stuff with them in particular.

To read this book and get max enjoyment out of it, a refresher on the six previous Brig stories (Web, Invasion, Spearhead, Silurians, Ambassadors and Inferno) with a definite rewatch for the Silurians. You'll also need a wiki page open during the U.N.I.T scenes in the story as a lot of returning soldiers, corporals and captains are in this story.

On the whole, if you are a fan of Season 7, Liz, the Brig or the Silurians and you'll be pleasantly shocked and amazed by what this book has to offer.

The Quantum Archangel is a tale of two stories. One is very emotional and allows Mel to become a lot more fleshed out with the Sixth doctor and is a fascinating look into both of their characters.

This connects into a sequel for the Time Monster which needs to be rewatched before reading this book to enjoy it fully. I didn't do that and found myself very confused very quickly, so I would highly recommend giving it a rewatch if you can.

The one problem this story has is its scale which goes way too big with everything in the universe at stake and the Doctor becoming very overpowered as the villain is too overpowered.

Overall this is a very good read if you had any interest in The Time Monster and the Guardians of Time.

The Clockwise Man is a pretty good story- nothing spectacular that makes it stand out from the crowd, but still a nice ready and a great read if you miss Rose and 9. It does have some interesting plot twist and a few memorable characters. Its location in central London is very well described and gives some wonderful atmosphere.

The Highest Science is excellent and in the VNA series very unique as it is more of just a fun story.

This story is written by Gareth Roberts who went on to write a lot for the Revival Series, and it shows why in this book. It has some great standout moments and a fantastic monster in the form of the Chelonians who are Cyborg Turtles determined to wipe out the humans (or as they say, "parasites") as they just want to destroy one another, so it must be the Gods who want them to be destroyed.

If already this sounds a bit lighter in tone than the other VNA's then that would be true which is why I enjoy the Highest Science so much. It's not trying to change lore or history, its just content in being itself and being fun. It also gives Bernice a lot to do and expands her character from Love and War.

The other main enemy of The Highest Science is Sheldukher. This guy is pretty bland and a bit underwhelming compared to the Chelonians as he is just a typical villain, but it is nice and refreshing from all the evil all-powerful entities from the rest of the VNA's.

So overall, this is just a fun and great story from Roberts which I would highly recommend.
