    1. EXTRA TIMEThis is by far the best Doctor Who novel that I have read in a long time, and the star of the story is Mr Rory Williams. It is 1966 and Rory has persuaded the Doctor and Amy to visit Wembley stadium to watch England's greatest victory, their one and only world cup final triumph.

    3. Extra Time goes for big, daft fun based around the 1966 football World Cup Final whilst The Water Thief is a little more thoughtful, a well conceived alien menace threatening ancient Egypt.
