So, this isn't the novel that change Dr who.
I was expecting something better than this. The story is good at the beginning, with the Doctor investigating a murder and a mysterious film, and when we are near the end it's a big bazard with giant projection, aliens who make you a star and demons.
Well, it isn't a second Doctor story who fit into his era. I wasn't expecting Polly to become a star like this, I was thinking she would play in a movie but...no, she become a star because of an alien power and it's very sad because Polly don't do something very memoerable during the whole story.
It was very easy to read for me, who's French. There wasn't any problem with the words it was simple english.
But I think John De Burg Miller isn't the writer of the century, he wrote a pseudo historical story with to much aliens thing and supernaturals effects.
I am not fan of this novel.
And this poor Tardis who didn't appeared at all. Not even a little mention, in this story THE TARDIS DO NOT EXIST. No, the Doctor drive a car, something I don't remember I've seen on TV (I can't remember everything) and Ben is a bit useless sometime.
I think the story would be better with a more recent team because, here, the story isn't like all the nd Doctor stories and it's very sad because I like the Patrick/Michael/Annake team.
