Part of the first three novels featuring Martha and the most "in character" for her to date. The plot is interesting. Early 1900's, Lake District a hunt that includes gigantic beasts, aliens and people acting quite strange. The Doctor does his doctor thing, Martha does her doctor thing and we have a nice romp of a tale that kept me reading until I finished the book. Always a good sign. The bad guys were interesting, the Doctor not to manic and Martha was just in character: intelligent, smart, useful and the damsel in distress. I liked this one.
