    A great little book. Most of the Target novels are.

    Doctor Who and the Underworld is a Tom Baker and Leela adventure and I have to say it was totally enjoyable. The book restored my faith in Terrance Dicks as a Doctor Who writer. The novelisation had lots of interesting back story about the Time Lords deciding to play god with a humanoid race they came across and how it all went terribly wrong! For an old who there was quite a bit of interesting philosophy here. The Time Lords had given a race technology and they used it to destroy themselves, but before they did they sent off two spaceships, one full of genetic material to rebuild their society, and another to take that ship to their new planet. But things went terribly wrong and they'd lost each other for 100,000 years when the Doctor and Leela arrived. This book did remind me what a great companion Leela was, totally capable, a little bloodthirsty and quite fun. I liked this ship full of people who'd been regenerating for millenia and hated it, the planet full of slaves (even if the mad computer was a touch original Star Trek)But all told I thought it was interesting and fun and I shall definitely have to watch the episode.

    Having never read any Doctor Who before I don't really have much to compare this offering to. As a science fiction book it's pretty mediocre. The seemingly rushed nature and enormous coincidences within the story make it feel more like a first draft of a television episode rather than a novella in its own right. Imagining Tom Baker running around doing the deeds described makes the whole thing more bearable, but this probably wasn't the best use of my Saturday morning.

    http://nhw.livejournal.com/1007902.html[return][return]Doctor Who and the Underworld is a bit less embarrassing than the TV original, but this is not saying much. The fact that we are not distracted by the disastrous special effects means that we can see the inadequacies of the plot rather better.

    Not your typical 'Who' story, but not entirely successful attempt to try something different. Feels more the kind of thing you'd expect to see more in 'Star Trek', as the Doctor helps a space ship crew on a quest get where they are going,

    Not one of my favorite episodes ... another megalomaniacal computer, another race in thrall, another ancient quest. This isn't to say that Dicks did a poor job in writing it, just that he had iffy material to work with, in my opinion.

    A great story with an undisguisedly heavy allusion at the very end. Which is a bit of a shame, undermines the well crafted subtly of the rest of the book.

    Okay, nothing spectacular. It continues with the usual Dr Who theme of human-like society under some tyrannous feudal system.

    Doctor Who's revolutionary zeal is pretty apparent in this book, in which he overthrows a slave planet and also ends a millenia-long quest by a very creepy starship crew.
