A bit of a change for this blog, a book review, but they say a change is as good as a rest so here goes. A lot of how much you enjoy this novel will depend on your affection for Tom Baker’s Doctor, Ian Marter’s Harry Sullivan and Elisabeth Sladen’s Sarah Jane Smith. Then again, […]Read More Doctor Who: Scratchman by Tom Baker with James Goss – a review.
Another review of the Diana, you say? Aren’t there enough already? Yes, there probably are . . . but here’s another one anyway. If I am honest, I went into this as a sceptic.
