Acceptable. Not bad but quite disturbing because this book didn't fit into the Second Doctor's era. I don't know this writer, I think he haven't done any 'classic books' so everybody forget him in the Dr who universe.

The main plot is strange. Aliens want to control everybody by making them 'stars'. They just drink a strange potion and they're stars. The aliens plan is quite strange, I think it could've been original if it was made by someone else.

I know the Doctor is hard to depict in books and his actions are hard to describe because, actually, Pat didn't play in the book. He investigate a murder and just do this during all the story. He investigate and investigate and make suggestions about the aliens or the murderer.

The Tardis isn't even mentionned in this book. Don't let a newbies read this because he will not understand.

Ben is quite good, his interactions with the others are good and he had some good lines. Polly is put apart and immediatly forgotten at the end of the story. She became a star and that's all. She don't do anything else (not even the coffee).

The bad guys are... I've forget their name but thei're strange. They reminded me of the Monoids. Their ally are a sort of cult with some good characters but nothing very special.

To conclude, read this when you're on a long journey or on the beach because even if you're concentrate on this story, you'll forget everything in three weeks.
