unmissable

Dark compelling frightening horror superbly read. The Doctor in magnificent form, part 4 is the best part of this tale so far. Battles with beasts and creatures through time and space.

A sting indeed!!

And (we aren't supposed to begin our sentences with "and" now are we, oh well, there you have it!) quite a twist on the plot, only to leave us hanging pecariously on the edge of a cliff when the the next chapter is whats wanted. OH! DEAR ME!! Do go on Doctor, do go on....
