4.0 out of 5 stars "I have abolished soul!" 6 Nov 2012
By Keen Reader TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Note this is a review of the novelisation of the story by Terrance Dicks

This is second story of Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor. In the novelisation of the story which I am reviewing, it seems implied that more time than you would have first thought has passed between the end of Castrovalva and this story; Tegan in particular seems to have been travelling with the Doctor, Nyssa and Adric for more than just a few days. Her repeated scorn at the Doctor's continuing failure to return her to London in her time definitely seems to imply that there was more action between the two stories than was in the original tv series.

This is a good, but not great story - the concept of Monarch, travelling with Persuasian and Enlightenment to Earth for his own purposes; the artificial intelligent lifeforms, and the Doctor and his companions interfering with Monarch's plans, is all okay. Some of the characterisations are rather weak, and parts of the storyline somewhat implausible, even for Doctor Who - the Doctor's antics on the spaceline between the ship and the Tardis stretched even my imagination.

The end of the novel does not feature the collapse of Nyssa which was played on the tv series version.

2.0 out of 5 stars Frogs in space? 30 Dec 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The TARDIS materialises in an enormous spaceship, which is en route to Earth. They meet three aliens: two human-looking (Persuasion and Enlightenment), and one frog-like creature called Monarch. Monarch invites the TARDIS crew to remain for the short journey to Earth. The ship also contains some Earth humans from previous visits. But Monarch has a plan he is not divulging...
This story is, perhaps, the weakest of Peter Davison's first season as the Doctor. Monarch's plan is particularly convoluted, the Doctor's companions are largely undifferentiated from each other, and the story is full of annoying bits, the most annoying of which, to me anyway, is Tegan's ability to speak a particular ancient Aboriginal language - most Australians know nothing of the many Aboriginal languages, let alone be able to converse in them. It appears simply an effort to recognise Tegan's nationality - the other human passengers, who are Chinese, Greek and Mayan, all speak English!
Possibly a good indicator of the relative merit of this story can be see by the fact that, of all the Peter Davison Doctor Who stories, this is the only one not yet released on video.
