Zamper

I enjoyed Zamper very much. The story is a good one, and the character work is good too. The books distinguishing characteristic, IMHO, is how very "Who" it is. I found myself picturing every line of the story in my head as if I was watching the series...no editing for content was necessary. Not a book that deals with great issues or leaves the Universe hanging in the balance, it is just a fun and enjoyable romp.

The Plotters

I really enjoyed "The Plotters." It was an interesting historical story, set around the "Gunpowder Plot". The plot of the story is interesting, and the First Doctor and his companions are new enough to me to make any use of them of special interest to me. In the end, the villain was a bit unbelievable, but no more so than in many Doctor Who stories.
