Leave Liz alone!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Devil Goblins from Neptune (Paperback)
When I saw the title of this novel, I thought "How Naff!". However, this novel is far better than the title suggests. There are obvious parallels with the X-files, it's true, but then UNIT was devised to deal with X-files style incidents.
For those who feel there are too many Liz Shaw novels, ask yourself this: Are there too many novels, or too few TV episodes? Four stories was not sufficient to explore the potential of this feisty Cambridge scientist.
The same is true of the UNIT regulars. Remember, there were plans to give them their own series in the 70s. The Brig, Benton, Yates, and (yes) even Cpl Bell could all be developed further. Potentially, Cpl Bell could be a Captain by the time of Battlefield, and head of a communications section.
So yes I enjoyed this book, more than I wanted to. And having read more by the same authors, feel that they should be encouraged.
