4.0 out of 5 stars The Doctor goes to the aid of the Keeper of Traken, 13 Oct. 2012
This review is from: Doctor Who and the Keeper of Traken (The Dr Who Library, No 37) (Paperback)
The Doctor and Adric have escaped from E-Space back to N-Space, leaving Romana and K-9 behind at Romana's wish. They are surprised to get a personal appearance from the Keeper of the planet Traken, a planet where only good lives, and where evil is nullified and removed from the environment. The Keeper, fearing his time is nearly at an end, is worried that evil has somehow found its way to Traken, and asks the Doctor to help - he warns that it will be a very dangerous task, but the Doctor and Adric are keen to help. This, to those who fondly remember the era of the Fourth Doctor on tv, is a rather poignant story, as we know that it is almost the end of his Fourth Doctor incarnation. Here he makes new friends (and the character of Nyssa, who becomes a companion is introduced) and enemies; and meets up with someone he'd rather not.

The story ends with the Doctor and Adric leaving Traken, but the story for the reader is not concluded - there's more that we know that the Doctor does not, and this continues on in to the next story, the last of the Fourth Doctor, Logopolis. A good story, written rather in the `typical' Terrance Dicks style, but nonetheless very readable and enjoyable for all that.

This is definitely a classic story - good on screen, good characterisation, and is a good novel in the classic series.

Did you notice the Masters clock at the end before abducting Trema body the clock said 11,56 meaning just 4 episodes left for Tom's Fourth Doctor.
