The Joy of History

There are few other Doctor Who stories that communicate just how fun history is. After discovering a mysterious Nazi conspiracy with seemingly occult powers in the present day, the Sixth Doctor and the Brigadier must go back in time to the final days of World War Two to find out who is behind it. Also there are aliens.

The authors meticulously researched the events behind the death of Hitler and do an excellent job of fitting the events of this novel into them. The pairing of Six and the Brigadier is an inspired choice, since they never truly met in the TV series. The story also manages to make digging through archives exciting.

Great stuff.

Good story, fun listen

The Doctor doesn't even show up for the 1st 20% of the book. Presumably he was off having tea, waiting for the action to heat up. And the action does arrive. We have the Brigadier, always a good thing, and Nazis and shadowy, imp-like aliens, and Hitler conspiracy theories to add to the mix. It felt a little padded in places and slightly over-written, but very enjoyable.
