I have to say, one of the reasons that I bought this book was because I own 'X-Treme Possibilities' by Keith Topping, Paul Cornell & Martin Day and it is the best book I have EVER invested in so I figured this was bound to be well above average. I was not disappointed. Unlike most 'official' episode guides for a series, Keith & co's guides always contain HUGE amounts of plot detail, cast info, trivia and general comments from the actors and author/s alike. This guide is definitely the best and most informative for this series, however, i find that it lacks some of the sparkle that made 'X-Treme Possibilities' and 'Slayer' such a joy to read, perhaps because there doesn't seem to be quite the same level of detail.
Despite this I believe that 'Beyond the Gate' is up there among the best for any genre.
