After watching Doctor Who (2005 onwards) I felt a need for more, so I was happy to find a rather large quantity of Who literature in the market.
In Doctor Who and the abominable snowmen, we see Patrick Troughton (second Doctor) face the mystery and danger of the abominable snowmen.
I don't know what the episode on T.V. was like, but I thoroughly enjoyed reading the exploits of one of the earlier Doctors, with it's mix of mystery, danger, and somewhat unbelievable monsters.
We are again exposed to Robots among other things, which especially today with the advent of artificial intelligence, taps in to our primal fears of the unknown and the dangers of the advancement of science.
I consider this to be my first, but certainly not my last, foray in to the wonderful adventures of the Doctor.
