This was a very intriguing book with an eye-catching cover. Before talking to the author, Simon Guerrier, in person, I didn't even realize that the traffic-light tree really existed! I had thought that he just created the image for the book cover and for the story within. Concerning the story itself, I won't spoil too much except to say that it's a sort of "What If?" tale: set between "Planet of Giants" and "The Dalek Invasion of Earth", it examines what might have happened had the Doctor not defeated WOTAN in the TV story "The War Machines". But ties and reference to "The War Machines" are minimal, allowing this to be a free-standing story in its own right, and no less enjoyable for those who are unfamiliar with the events of "The War Machines".
Ever play the video game Lemmings or hear the myth that "Lemmings mindlessly moving into danger en masse?" Well, in this book, the same idea holds true, only with one time traveler in particular that keeps being copied & each copy spawns right into danger. The idea that each copy of the time traveler is a bit different is rather amusing in the book, as there are sometimes 5 or more of the same person, different copy, running around at any given time.

The downfall of this book was the story. The paradoxes of time travel can be confusing, which I admire the author for taking on the subject. However, they should at least make some sense, which at times, the story doesn't make sense at all. I'm not sure if it was the actual concepts involved or just the amateur writing skills of the author. In time, Simon Guerrier has the potential to be a great writer, but considering this was his first novel, it did read as such. Coupled with the concepts involved & the fact this was... Read more
a lot of things. Dangerous. Action packed. Confusing. Mostly confusing. The Doctor and gang find themselves in a London of their future (our past) rocked by war, death and ruin. England seems to have fought itself into a corner while trying to hold back progress and technology. This has only allowed its enemies to gain the upper hand.
The answer seems to be in the past (but once again a future the Doctor has yet to see) and the novel itself, while somewhat confusing and slow, is worth the read in the end. Doctor Who fans, who know their Doctor Who history, will enjoy it.
