I didn't get very far in the book. Not sure what's going on with the narrator. Sometimes he would talk twice the original speed for no reason!
"A modern story set in the past"
Indeed. The voice acting was first class. The narrators characters were instantly recognisable and his portrayal of the Third Doctor was uncanny.
Sarah Jane standing up to the main gangster.
probably too Grim for TV back then..but a good romp.
