A very fun story that really utilises time travel in the plot, a little bit like how under the lake/before the flood uses it. Certainly one of the funniest doctor who stories but with some dark moments, i'd strongly recommend it.

The Festival of Death is an intelligent story filled with interesting characters and situations. Jonathan Morris does a great job of capturing the characterization of the Doctor, Romana, and K9. You have to keep track of the different time loops which makes this an interesting read. Overall, a good read in the spirit of the 4th Doctor.

Festival of Death, in my opinion is overrated, going into it I expected great things from the novel, however not being the biggest fan of the TV era it was trying to recreate I was disappointed. The plot itself was pretty good, very timey-wimey and ahead of its time. The conclusion of the novel, the last 50 pages or so I very much enjoyed and right up until the end it hides the way in which the Doctor will save the G-Lock that had been set up and foreshadowed even from the novel's blurb; the payoff defiantly delivers and is doesn't come out of nowhere that you might expect from a messy time travel story. I definitely feels like "Father's Day" or "Before the Flood" on acid while also sticking the rules of the Doctor Who universe when it comes to time-travel. Would absolutely recommend it to anyone a fan of The Doctor and Romana mostly, but it is a good read if you want a clever tie travel story :)
