In My Own Words:
I work for the Australian Government, and my reading habits have changed quite a bit in recent times. This is because my work has become more demanding, so I want my reading to be less demanding.

As such, I'm mostly reading genre fiction - principally the Doctor Who series (as it was my favourite TV show as a child) and Sherlock Holmes books (which I started reading as a teenager).

4.0 out of 5 stars Is Hitler alive?, Sept. 15 2001
Investigating a series of strange events, the Brigadier pulls out a long unused device which sends a signal to the Doctor - in this case, in his sixth incarnation. What is the mystery that unites a spaceship shot down over England in 1944, strange demonic figures hidden in the shadows, and the final fate of Adolph Hitler?
Apparently written in three weeks when another book became unavoidably delayed, this book unites the current and previous editors of BBC's Doctor Who line of novels in a surprisingly well thought-through that combines fact and fiction into a coherent whole, while containing several plot twists that you probably won't see coming.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looking back fondly..., Sept. 15 2001
Sarah Jane Smith is seeking stories in South East Asia, and finds herself pursuing colourful pieces relating to the return of Hong Kong to Chinese rule. But is the strange little man with underworld connections who runs the Pimms Corporation really her old friend the Doctor?
This novel is more a story of investigative journalist and former travelling companion Sarah than it is of the Doctor. Indeed, the Doctor's role is far more reminiscent of that he played when Who novels were produced by Virgin: a shadow figure, inclined to manipulate events from the background.
But the book doesn't suffer for that. Sarah is a strong character, well able to carry a large portion of the story,… Read more
