Doctor Who And The Sunmakers

Author: Terrance Dicks

Part of a series: Doctor Who

Publisher: Target (1982)

Heading out of the solar system, the TARDIS passes Pluto further into the future and materialises - the Doctor blaming the new paint for jamming things. Outside, everything is wrong: there is a breathable atmosphere, a large city and much warmer than it should be. And there's a man about to commit suicide... 'The Sunmakers' is Robert Holmes' rather scathing black comedy about taxation, here adapted by Terrance Dicks. Casting the Doctor, Leela and K9 in anarchic roles, and opposing them with bureaucratic opponents, this story is fairly fun romp.
