This review is from: Doctor Who-The Edge of Destruction (Paperback)
I'm not really sure what prompted another reader to declare that this book contains "thunderously bad" prose. It seemed fine to me. Fairly consistent in style with the dozens of other Doctor Who novelizations by the likes of Terrance Dicks, Ian Marter et al. If you enjoy reading these Doctor Who stories off the page, you'll probably enjoy this one too. It's pretty faithful to David Whittaker's original script as broadcast in 1964, giving the rather odd, nervy, 'psychological drama' style of these two old black & white episodes. It wasn't actually novelized until 1988, so there's a little bit of 'revisionism' in the way some of the concepts are presented, but only a little.
