Generic but fun fantasy,
This review is from: Sorcerer's Apprentice (Doctor Who Missing Adventures) (Paperback)
This novel finds the 1st Doctor, Susan, Barbara and Ian landing on a magical fantasy world, though this being Doctor Who it's somewhat inevitable that the `magic' will ultimately turn out to be highly advanced alien science. The actual fantasy world of Elbyon is very generic: dragons, dwarfs, elves, an evil wizard in his dark tower, a quest for a magical artefact to defeat him, but the action comes so thick and fast that the reader is swept along with little pause for thought. Bulis characterisation is sadly all but non-existent though, with the majority of the cast being distinguishable only be name. By no means a great Doctor Who novel, this is nevertheless a diverting harmless runaround with plenty of action for the regulars.
