Will an Earth colony world become an insect colony? 7 Nov 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This story is adapted by the series script editor at the time, Terrance Dicks. I remember watching this story on TV and finding it particularly good.
The Doctor and Jo are off in the TARDIS, on a mission for the Time Lords. They arrive on Skybase One, in orbit around the planet Solos, one of many planets subjugated by Earth's empire. They must deliver small container to someone - but they don't know exactly who.
There is tension between the natives of Solos and the Earth men. Earth is exploiting Solos' mineral wealth, and something else is happening. Solonians are starting to mutate into insect-like creatures...
Reading this book and thinking back, I have to say that the reality is that the serial (six episodes) was probably too long. Of course, this gives the book an advantage: it can skim over the parts that may be regarded as padding and stick to the central story - which is still quite a good one.
