Alistair Reynolds you know your Third Doctor this is a epic Third Doctor adventure read superbly by Geoffrey Beevers(Big Finish audio Master & Master in The Keeper of Traken).

I wont give away to much but i would say if this story was made for the tv series it would've been one of the best Third Doctor storys made.

Reynolds writing of the Pertwee era's characters is spot on & he also captures that Third Doctor/Master relationship of Good vs Evil with a underlined hint of friendship simmering beneath.

One of the best Who storys in ages & adapted well to Audiobook.

Recommended for any Third Doctor Who fans.

Then again Recommended full stop to any fans wanting a tense engaging story.

It's Alastair Reynolds and it's Doctor Who. If you are a fan of both then you should buy this book. At least, that's what I thought...

The novel begins with a wonderfully nasty prologue and Reynolds fluid prose style engages immediately. There's a brilliant death in chapter one that could have been lifted straight out of a Terrance Dicks or Malcolm Hulke novelisation (Who fans will know what I'm talking about here), and chapter two opens with the best description of a North Sea oil platform I think I've ever read. Here Reynolds is in fine form, writing Doctor Who using all the skills he brings to bear in his own sci-fi novels with no compromise. Brilliant!
As it progresses through its early stages, the story continues to wonderfully evoke the style and flavour of the 3rd Doctor UNIT era: The mystery of the oil rigs develops and the cast of regular characters is joined by some fully-rounded, yet still typically 3rd Doctor-ish types, including: 'recalcitrant rig boss', 'crazy wild-eyed survivor of alien attack', 'sinister Men from the Ministry', 'doomed yokel', 'doomed policeman', and of course (unmistakeably Roger Delgado's) The Master. (It's no surprise he's involved since he's mentioned in the blurb.)

There are so many things to like about this novel: the aliens are deliciously nasty and very well-realised (I would expect nothing less), the regular characters are true to their 1970s TV likenesses (likewise) and, like the best of the novelisations of that era, they are given depth and room to breathe - particularly Jo Grant. Reynolds' own characters are just as solid and 'real' but to be honest, from a renowned sci-fi novelist of Reynold's calibre, I would expect this to be so.

How to add anything to the vast body of justified positive reaction to Harvest of Time?

There is next to nothing to fault.

Alastair Reynolds reminds us that Jon Pertwee's time as Doctor Who was something to celebrate, not leave out in the cold. He captures Roger Delgado's performance as the Master wistfully well, and uses the scope of the prose form to add unexpected depth. Katy Manning's Jo Grant jumps off the page too, with the addition of a little inner life of her own. He even pays wheezing, groaning homage to the Target house style.

"Harvest of Time" runs nose to nose with, and maybe a little ahead of, Mark Gatiss's "Last of the Gaderene". With all the right notes in the right order, it's a reminder that an untarnished English 1970s pop culture icon should be treasured to the last smear of video flare and frame of grainy location film.

Finally!!! And THANK YOU Alastair Reynolds, Mr, Sir. This lovingly written book is a complete gem. It perfectly captures the spirit of the Pertwee era right down to the smallest detail - like Mike Yates eating a ham sandwich, much to the annoyance of the Brigadier. You can actually remember seeing that scene on the black and white telly in the corner of your parent's living room. This book is THAT good. The dialog between the main characters rings so MANY familiar bells, you can hear every word just as if it was being spoken by the actors who played the roles.

If this WAS an actual aired story from the Pertwee era we would all (still) be talking about it even now as a 'classic'. Its as if Reynolds was channelling Malcolm Hulke AND Barry Letts, whilst Terrance Dicks looked on and occasionally passed him scribbled notes on continuity.

Sit back, open this book, and be transported back to saturday teatime, 1972ish.

A story involving the third Doctor, Jo Grant, Unit, and others. This feels very much like season 8 with perfectly recognisable characters. These ARE the versions of your much-loved characters and Alistair Reynolds deserves buckets of praise for this book.

The main plot involving activities on oil rigs feels so right and a fast pace makes this story rattle along nicely. The scenes where the first aliens appear are particularly tense.

I wish all Doctor Who books could be this good.

A fantastic classic .story set during the Doctor's Third Regeneration (Jon Pertwee) featuring the Master and of course UNIT, Well written with a deadly swam in the Sild. For those of us old enough to remember the original series pre the re launch and ideal for new fans to discover the past
