    1. Great story. I very much enjoyed it but it leaves a very important question unanswered: Given what the Feratu accomplish in their universe would seem to be the ultimate goal of all the Doctors struggles, why then not bow out and let them win? Universal harmony. An end to strife. Evil annihilated. Unlimited rice pudding. No suffering. Isn't that what the Doctor wants?Or, is it neither the ends or the means that the Doctor strives for but perhaps the doing itself? He wants to be the hero. He wants [...]

    2. Interesting. This is one of the Doctor Who Missing Adventures from the mid-90s, and features a Fifth Doctor story crashing into a Seventh Doctor conflict. It's got a strong setup, but ends up a bit flat at the end, the resolution of the big epic conflicts ending up more cerebral than emotional. And neither of the big apocalyptic threats feels truly tense or threatening. That said, it's a worthwhile experience for any classic Doctor Who fan who is interested in the interplay of these eras.

    3. The meeting between the secretive, machiavellian 7th Doctor and the innocent, trusting 5th Doctor is as explosive and hilarious as you would expect, thanks to Lance Parkin's firm hand.

    4. Has nothing to do with the means of producing energy15 May 2012 Well, this I believe was one of the last Missing Adventure Books that I have read (and while I would not be adverse to reading more, it really comes down to finding them, and I suspect that, with the exception of scouring second-hand bookshops, it may be expensive, particularly if I am ordering through ). Anyway, this book involves Tegan, Adric, and Nyssa (whom I vote to be the Doctor's sexiest companion, at least for the older seri [...]

    5. nhwvejournal/1054675ml#cutid2[return][return]Here we have a novel mainly about Five, Adric, Tegan and Nyssa, but also involving Seven and (rather more so) his companions from the Virgin New Adventures, Chris Cwej and Roz Forrester. There are some very nice character moments, especially for the Doctors and the female companions, but the plot was not particularly special, and I don't think a tetrahedron of the size specified in those planetary conditions is very likely. There are some nice nods to [...]

    6. A strong Doctor Who novel, with great characterizations, funny references to the classic series, and an OK plot. A bit confusing with multiple Doctors and 5 companions, but Parkin does a surprisingly good job of capturing who each of them is.

    7. An awesome book. It’s not often two Doctor’s are used together well but |Lance Parking does it. The companions are used to great effect in the two concurrent storylines.
