Dr. Who The Bog Warrior - A Review

This short novella is a fun romp with  Dr. Who as he visits the planet Cashel.  The book itself makes use of an undated Dr. Who, though a brief introduction to the book explains that The Doctor is the Tenth Doctor.  The Doctor portrayed in the story seemed to have more similarities to Tom Baker's portrayal of the Doctor, than the more recent episodes.  

The story focuses on his interaction with a group of Zombies that The Doctor discovers are trapped as slaves of an evil queen.  In an effort to protect the inhabitants of Cashel and the Zombies, the Doctor must expose the evil motives that drive Queen Xenotime.  Having grown up with Dr. Who - beginning with some of his earliest manifestations, the short book held my attention.  It was again encouraging to see that the doctor enter into an unknown culture and find ways to help without disrupting the people who he finds there.

I will look forward to reading additional stories in this collection.
