Doctor Who - The Novel Of The Film

Author: Gary Rusell

Part of a series: Doctor Who

Publisher: BBC Books (1996)

This book has been written speedily from an excellent script but with precious little visual reference. As well as that, changes to the script took place throughout filming and so portions of this version may differ from what we all see on screen. Nevertheless, I am indebted to a number of people who have helped fill in the visual blanks, as it were.

Doctor Who -Timelash

Author: Glen McCoy

Part of a series: Doctor Who

Publisher: Target (1986)

Peri, the Doctor’s companion seems to get rather a tough time of it, and by the time this story rolls around you’d really have to wonder why she’s still wanting to even travel with him. In the last story of Season 21, The Twin Dilemma, the Doctor has just regenerated and tries to strangle Peri. In Season 22, Peri has been attacked by Cybermen, genetically mutated on Varos, threatened by the Rani and the Master on Earth, and then coveted by a hungry Androgum. By the time the Doctor lands the Tardis on Karfel, I can’t think why Peri even bothers to get out of the Tardis – she must know it’s not going to go well. And so it proves; separated from the Doctor, she is attacked by androids, captured by rebels, then held hostage against a vicious Morlox by treacherous Karfelon councillors.
