5.0 out of 5 stars Splendid fellows, 10 May 2012

This review is from: Doctor Who: The Three Doctors (Mass Market Paperback)
A strange creature emerges from a weather balloon with a mission to hunt the Doctor. On Gallifrey the Time Lords monitor a strange power loss, tracking it back to a black hole. In desperation they decide to break the First Law of Time.
Whenever I think of the tv version of The Three Doctors I think of it as the one with the 'comedy Brigadier'. Back when I was a kid though it was the one with the 'thingy' that made folk disappear. That 'thingy' scared the heck out of me.
Terrance Dicks goes to town on this one. He completely rewrites just about every scene though amazingly without changing the plot at all. So, gone are many of the comedy lines that the Brigadier made famous but he still remains the 'comedy Brigadier' because Dicks just replaces them with his own brand of cheekiness. Dicks is having fun throughout, from the Brig's comment about Omega's domain looking like a quarry, to the over the top huge battle between the Brig, Benton, Hollis (Ollis), Tyler and Jo, all tooled up like the A-Team, waging total war on a horde of blobbies. The blobbies were so awful in the tv version that it's hard to even imagine them as anything remotely dynamic, so Dick's gleeful slaughter of the bobby blobbies, blowing them up with anti tank ordinance and scything them in two with machine gun fire, is a welcome bit of pay back. With the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who fast approaching this one really is a fitting release as the original tv story kicked off the tenth anniversary.
Original artwork, features on script to novel, Terrance Dicks, Bob Baker/Dave Martin and a new introduction by Alastair Reynolds.

I bought all the 'Target' Doctor Who novelizations when I was a kid. This was before the VCR so the only way to re-live Doctor Who was to read it in novel form. I can honestly say that it was the desire to read these stories that was my prime motivation to learn to read when I was in junior school.

I'm so glad these literary treasures are being released on the Kindle. I've bought all of them so far and will probably buy all the subsequent releases. My young son loves to have them read to him for his bedtime stories.

This 3rd Doctor (Jon Pertwee) story is the 10th anniversary special where the 3rd Doctor meets his previous two selves to stop a threat to the entire Universe.
