Publisher Comments:

1500BC - King Actaeus and his subjects live in mortal fear of the awesome gods who have come to visit their kingdom in ancient Greece. Except the Doctor, visiting with university student June, knows they're not gods at all. They're aliens. For the aliens, it's the perfect holiday - they get to tour the sights of a primitive planet and even take part in local customs. Like gladiatorial games, or hunting down and killing humans who won't be missed. With June's enthusiastic help, the Doctor soon meets the travel agents behind this deadly package holiday company - his old enemies the Slitheen. But can he bring the Slitheen excursion to an end without endangering more lives? And how are events in ancient Greece linked to a modern-day alien plot to destroy what's left of the Parthenon? Featuring the Doctor as played by David Tennant in the hit BBC Television series.

This book features the Doctor (played by David Tennant in the BBC series Doctor Who). Since in the television series the character is traveling alone now, the author created an original companion to have one adventure with the Doctor and did a very good job at making her interesting, likable, and engaging. I found myself hoping the author was planning another adventure with her in it. The plot was original, the story well written, and I had trouble putting it down. A must read for New Doctor Who fans!
