A good solid read

John Lucarotti enjoys history and it shows. One of the sadly destroyed Doctor Who stories. The Massacre is the story of the The De Medici Massacre of the Huguenots on St Bartholomew's Day. It is also the story of the Doctor's involvement and his inability to do any thing to prevent it. History must not be changed. As such, it is a tragic tale all around. Lucarotti tells it well. The writing is solid with just enough description and character shadings to bring things to life. As the reader can use his or her imagination, Lucarotti also has a bigger budget than the show ever did and the Paris of 1572 comes to life. As should be the case with a historical story, the reader will come away with much knowledge of the events leading up to the Massacre, the politics and the personages involved and, while ultimatly sad, it is still a rousing adventure filled with suspense and intrique. And, as I've remarked in another review, Steven Taylor was a great companion. A good solid read.
