Modern Love was a standalone novel by Paul Magrs.

This story was notable for referencing Magrs' Eighth Doctor Adventures novel The Blue Angel and the then-unpublished Phoenix Court novel Fancy Man, and for featuring a cameo by Brenda Soobie, an incarnation of Iris Wildthyme.

Notes[[edit]]

  • The reactions of a family to a character in a coma were also explored in Magrs' Phoenix Court novel Could It Be Magic?.
  • The scenes at the Spiritualist Church mirror those in The Blue Angel, albeit with a darker and more sexual edge. Several characters from that novel reappear.
  • The writing of Pieces of Belinda by Timon and its subsequent publication are events from the Phoenix Court novel Fancy Man.
