Random Doctor Who Picture  

My main memory of this book is that at one point the Doctor is more or less forced to spend five years running a high class restaurant on a world populated by intelligent hamsters which on a quick skim just now turn out not to be large intelligent hamsters but large furry intelligent coffee tables (I was clearly getting confused with the Pakhars from the New Adventures).

I know I've read this, but I can't remember much more than how to pronounce 'Bucephalus' and that the villain got killed by a Sontaran (I think) in a classic piece of Craig Hinton fan service.

I also recall it being one of Hinton's more enjoyable books (though I tended to quite like his work anyway), but I don't remember many details.

Funny, my memory of it involves the Fifth Doctor wearing a blue brocade jacket and cravat, with his hair tied back in a ponytail. Teenage romantic crushes for the win! :D

LOL! I don't ever recall having a crush on the Doctor, though its possible I just hit the various incarnations at the wrong age. I do remember enjoying this book though, even if all that sticks in the mind is the restaurant and the not-hamsters.
