This book is indeed a quick read and is a little on the short side with 104 pages with big print, but that doesn't take anything away from the story. This book is a great start i think for a beginner and for someone just getting into it, it is short and gets to the point. What i really think helps is seeing the right episode, and then when you read the books you can just picture the characters and are already informed with the inside jokes. When you know your Doctor Who then it is funny.
The story is very strong, it begins in the TARDIS and the Doctor is ready to take Rose to the moon. Ready with space suits, anti- gravity practice, a flag, and golf clubs they open there doors with a big surprise/disappointment. They find themselves in England and in the nothing exciting part to add. But when on a dig a huge mystery is uncovered, and i mean it literally. The Dalek is the most dangerous threat to curse the Innocent, and it is ready to inflict pain to the harmless. Can the Doctor save man kind with out giving up?
This book may be a day read but it is very entertaining,
