A lovely mystery with many interesting character insights

James Goss continues to delight with this Twelfth Doctor story. A well-woven tale with many mysteries layered upon one another. Looking forward to the next installment.

Throw away title, throw away book.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Depends on the friend. I find any situation where the title of the book is miss matched completely to the content to be garbage throw away fiction, but the ending was cute so if someone was a big enough fan I could see them reading it.

What could James Goss have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Make it a short story. There was not enough too it to be as long as it was. I had a hard time caring about anything the characters were doing because they were so flat. I liked the ending so there was a good idea buried underneath it all, but it is not enough to warrant a novel, even one as short as this.

Which character – as performed by Clare Higgins – was your favorite?

The Doctor. She did quite a good job portraying the 12th doctor's surly Scottish tones.

Did Doctor Who: The Gods of Winter inspire you to do anything?

Yes to criticize the garbage title of the book. It has almost zero topicality or bearing on the story. Truly Lame.

Any additional comments?

Again, Meaningless throw away title indicative of garbage fiction. Not worth the time or money. Clare Higgins was great I hope to hear her on better stories.
