5.0 out of 5 stars Echoes of the Fendahl, 1 Jun 2009
This review is from: Doctor Who: Psi-ence Fiction (Mass Market Paperback)
This original Doctor Who novel features the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) and his leather-clad warrior companion from the late 70s; Leela. The supernatural is very much the theme of this story; in many ways it works as something of a companion piece to 1977 TV serial `Image of the Fendahl' which was scripted by the author, Chris Boucher. The story sees the time travellers arrive on a UK university campus sometime in the late Twentieth Century, where they discover that experiments involving a group of students and their so called 'psychic' powers are being conducted. Elements of the story include: Ouija boards, evil spirits, graveyards, a creepy wood (very Fendahl), telepathy, cocky students, deluded professors, bemused policemen, a Doctor who you can just imagine bounding along in bug-eyed delight, and lashings of mystery and intrigue.
Boucher joins all the plot threads together competently, and there is real humour in The Doctor's interactions with the Earth authorities. All in this novel is one of my favourites in the range; Psi-Ence Fiction is accessible, uncomplicated, and refuses to be a slave to technobabble; highly recommended for hardcore fans and those wishing to explore anew the worlds of Doctor Who.
