The Chelsea Flower Show - hardly the most exciting or dangerous event in the calendar, or so Doctor thinks. But this is Chelsea 426, a city-sized future colony floating on the clouds of Saturn, and the flowers are much more than they seem.

As the Doctor investigates, a familiar foe arrives, and the stakes suddenly get much higher. The Sontarans have plans of their own, and they're not here to arrange flowers.

    " Enjoyed the young twins in the story. And love the Sontarans as an alien race (they make me giggle) and the newcomers, the Rutan Hosts, were an interesting bunch. And the writer made Doctor Ten really come alive in this book. Enjoyed it immensely. "

    " My least favourite so far. Nothing particularly against it but still... "

    " Reading "Taking of 426" is like drinking a cola. You pop the top and slightly hesitate as you remember hearing not-so-great things about how drinking cola is bad for you and gets worse and worser over time the more you do and do it. Yet, for whatever reason, when you sip the would-be contraband you find the sluice of sticky sweet suds is suddenly refreshing. Your sip becomes a gulp and as you finish. And, as you finish, you offer yourself a promise: No more colas... Well, at least not until the next Chelsea 426 Flower Show. [[[Simply put, while 426 is not among the best Doctor novels, it was an entertaining flight of whimsy. 426 easily delights as a "beach read" or "brain bubble bath".]]] Llewelyn captured the Sontaran spirit of single minded attempt to pursue war while layering just enough anti-war tutelage from the Doctor to make you wonder if those crazy potato heads may one day find peace enthralling. Naaaah. The Rutans were interesting, however they lacked breadth in backstory or depth of portrayal within the plot. "

    " Molto Bene! Loved it, the only thing I disliked about this book was the fact that some of the characters 'seemed' smarter than the Doctor. The Doctor, a cornucopia of knowledge, doesn't in fact know something? Preposterous. Although I liked the ending, sort of like Star Trek: The Original Series' 'A Trouble with Tribbles' ending(but I digress). Hilarious and definitely recommended for a lover of Doctor Who. "
