Bad Therapy is an original novel written by Matthew Jones and based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. It features the Seventh Doctor, Chris and Peri.


1950s London, the Soho district seems to be just the thing to recover from recent traumatic events in the 30th century. It's not to be, as a rash of violence shakes the city. A driverless cab is killing people, others with no past are being slain in bizarre rituals, crime is running rampant, gangs are fighting for territory and deep in an abandoned mental hospital an evil psychiatrist is laying plans.
