    No way as good as it could have been

    The story has great potential — revisiting the site from the beginning of Doctor Who’s story — but both the TV serial and the subsequent story suffer from the failing to meet that potential. Numerous references to WWII seem stretched both by the number of them and the lack of impact such references make. The characters are therefore lacklustre and also just part of the scenery within which an almost omnipotent Doctor can reduce a growling Alsatian to a dogged devotee and be able to hardwire any technical device as well as be able to breakthrough a Dalek security code with ease. And the fight scenes between the vying Dalek factions are laborious and uninformative. The irony of the reference to Bernard and British Rocket Group would have horrified Quatermass’ creator, as Nigel Kneale disliked the concept of Doctor Who intensely. 60s racism, warring Dalek factions, scars from WWII, a vaguely referenced past romance, are all rushed through. The school is also just another prop. So much more could have been done with the material, but the author of this novel was constrained by the TV episodes from which it is derived. I am a great fan of Aaronvitch’s Peter Grant series, which is why I bought this book, but it is not of the same calibrate or quality.

    Better than the TV show

    Watched the TV show as a kid, now I've read the book it brings so much more to it all. Brilliant, if a little underfunded by the BBC, Compared to my imagination at least
