Doctor Who:Deep Time by Trevor Baxendale

This was a strong Dr. Who story. A new ship, the Alexandria has been launched. On board the crew, run and hosted by the exceedingly wealthy "captain" and owner of  this brand new ship, pops the Doctor, and Clara. The Doctor feels he might be needed.

Dr. Tippy, an archaeologist of sorts, found a dig site with relics which has led them thus far. This ship's mission is to go into a Phaeron Road. The Phaeron's were responsible for mapping black holes, or wormholes. The problem is, this race is gone. They might have died destroying these wormholes, or they might have been wiped out by another race who felt that they were a threat, the Time Lord's history on this is a bit cloudy. Something else much more sinister could have befallen them.

Each crew member, each person on board the Alexandria has a strong reason for going on this mission. They each have a dream or purpose that has pushed them to explore this at great risk. Are they really doing this of their own volition, or is something bigger and more compelling controlling them? In all his 2,000 years, the Doctor hasn't had this kind of adventure.

I really enjoyed this well paced, nicely written book. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others who enjoy Doctor Who. The cover is also very nice!

 My copy of this book came from Blogging For Books in exchange for my honest review and nothing else.
