The Gaderene are coming & peace & prosperity is the last thing on there agenda & how is The Master caught up in these mysterious goings on & just what his the renegade Timelord exactly up to?

Timelord Thoughts.
Mark Gatiss is one of Doctor Who's best writer's who has written for Nu-Who on Tv & Big Finish audio adventures.

Here the writer's nailed the Third Doctor era spot on, You can almost hear Jon Pertwees voice while reading this & would've made a great tv or audio adventure.

Gatiss has also nailed the supporting characters of the era from Jo Grant- Mike Yates & Benton to The Roger Delgado charming scheming Master & captures the atmosphere of the Third Doctor era.

The plot is intriguing & engaging adding great dramatic moments & real chills as there is a shade of the 80's mini series V here.

This is one of the best 50th Anniversary novels released & a must buy for fans of the Third Doctor & UNIT.

Timelord Rating.
8/10

For sure Mark Gatiss has captured the Third Doctor era perfectly - the story was a really good one, I thought, and you could imagine it being played out on the screen.
Great review.
