When there used to be bookshops, I used to wander around the science fiction section. There always used to be a lot Dr Who spin off books. What sad losers read this books I used to think. My nickname at school was (in my own mind) was "hard man stud", I would not be seen dead reading such nerdy books.

Well 25 years later I seemed to have read  Doctor Who: Shada on my kindle. With a kindle no one can see what you are reading. Why did I read this? It was a book based on a script by Douglas Adams. before the Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy,  Adams was involved in Dr Who. The book had been finished off by another writer.

The story was enjoyable and I think I detected some of the comedy from Adams.
