-Paul Cornell introduces explicit sex into Doctor Who for the first time, leading me to eternally consider him tasteless.
-Like Kate Orman, Cornell portrays the Seventh Doctor, in his manipulations, as both contemptible (he lets Jan die) and pathetic (there are strong indications that he did it just because he's jealous of Jan and doesn't want Ace to leave him). Love and War is one of many Doctor Who novels written by obnoxious fans-turned-authors; you get used to it.
