4.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Who Does Terminator & V, 14 Nov. 2013
Timelord-007 (The Eccentric Wanderer) - See all my reviews
This review is from: System Shock (Doctor Who Missing Adventures) (Paperback)
This is a great novel written by author Justin Richards whom as wrote many Doctor Who novels & Big Finish audio adventures.

This features the Fourth Doctor & Sarah Jane Smith were there arrival in London in 1998 they are called by former Companion Harry Sullivan to investigate a software company 12 who's technology is about to go online & in doing so control everything on the internet.

Harry Sullivan is now Chief of MI5 & teams up with his former friend's the Doctor & Sarah Jane 20 years since there last adventure together has sent for them to help him monitor & stop the events of a sinister Alien threat invading earth.

The Doctor,Sarah Jane & Harry once again team up to thwart the aliens attack upon the earth but will they succeed in stopping the Aliens attempt at taking over of Earth.?

This is a intriguing & enjoyable story by author Justin Richards who writers here the return of Harry Sullivan 20 years on & deals with the fact Sarah stuggles in seeing ger friend 20 years older while the Doctor has no problems dealing with the issue.

The Reptilian cyborgs disguised as humans is a bit V for my liking yet Richard's able to make this race a different kettle of fish from the V tv show.

Richards also writes exellently for The Fourth Doctor & this reader could hear Tom's vocal tones throughout my read.

Sarah Jane isn't sidelined either as she gets involved in the plot getting her hands dirty so to speak.

This is a great Fourth Doctor & Sarah Jane novel running to around 326 pages & one of the better paperback novels available in the release.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shockingly good, 8 Mar. 2009
This review is from: System Shock (Doctor Who Missing Adventures) (Paperback)
This 'Missing Adventure' in the post-TV series Doctor Who strand centres on a rebellion an alien world and a linked kidnapping in Central London in 1998. The head of MI5 is assassinated whilst a seige situation is violently dealt with by SAS troopers. The Fourth Doctor is caught-up in events when a computer disc is surreptitiously slipped into his pocket by a dead man. Along with companion Sarah-Jane Smith, The Timelord tries to prevent the breakdown of society on Earth and at the same time attempts to thwart an invasion by outer-space warriors. This story is canonically in-between 1975 TV stories 'The Seeds of Doom' and The Masque of Mandragora.
One of the better 'Missing Adventures' it benefits from focusing on the most popular and charismatic of the Timelord's incarnations and the show's best companions; out of the thirty odd books in the range it is certainly one of the five best.
