Jo glanced at the Doctor. 'Things must be pretty serious then.' 'They are, Jo. Very serious indeed. The whole of the Universe is in danger.'

Once a Time Lord, now exiled to a black hole in space, Omega is seeking a bitter and deadly revenge against the whole Universe..

The Three Doctors was a story in the Doctor Who tv series from 1973, written to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the program, and featuring, as it was a celebratory story, all three Doctors who had played the role so far! William Hartnell appeared as the First Doctor, but his ill health did not allow him to play a full role, so the First Doctor was written to appear on the Tardis scanner only, allowing him to interact with his other selves. Patrick Troughton appeared as the Second Doctor, and Jon Pertwee of course as the incumbent Third Doctor. The story was written by Bob Baker and Dave Martin, and the novelisation, written by Terrance Dicks, was published in 1975. The novelisation remained faithful to the tv story, with a few minor tweaks, and the novel also carefully differentiated between the various incarnations of the Doctor for the reader’s benefit. The novelisation is now performed in audio (released in 2010) by Katy Manning on this four-cd set, running at 3 hours 30 minutes.

The story begins with the appearance of a scientific balloon, which appears to hold a force capable of removing people from the landscape – but what is it, and where are they going? The Doctor finds himself faced with this entity at UNIT headquarters, and then finds himself faced with an even stranger appearance – that of one of his former selves! For the Timelords themselves are in grave danger on their home planet, and only the Doctor, aided by his former selves, have any hope of saving them all, and the universe itself. The Third Doctor, his assistant Jo Grant, the Brigadier, and Sergeant Benton find themselves having an adventure unlike any they have ever encountered before; and this time the stakes could not be higher.

Format: Audio CD
After several years and a slew of releases the BBC audio adaptations of the popular Target Doctor Who novelisations have reached new heights, with this superb presentation of the Tenth anniversary television serial featuring the first three incarnations of The Doctor.
Katy Manning, Jon Pertwee's lovably ditzy assistant between 1971 and 1973, narrates this audio book, as the producer's first choice ex-director Barry Letts sadly died before he could be involved. Manning's reading is as vivacious and enthusiastic as you would imagine if you'd seen her in action as the effervescent Jo Grant, and her characterisation of The Third Doctor is particularly inspired, whilst her rendering of the dulcet tones of arch-fiend and renegade Time Lord Omega are inspired, thanks to some modulating trickery, and have fooled at least one fan into thinking that Stephen Thorne is reprising the voice of the character he played on TV.
The musical interludes and accompaniments are also very impressive, and convey the story's various moods to perfection.
Overall this is yet another excellent addition to the audio range, and an essential purchase for lovers of Doctor Who both old and new.

Format: Paperback
Doctor Who, a Time Lord, a member of a race of powerful beings who "police" space and time, has been banished to Earth, and here serves as an advisor to U.N.I.T. (the United Nation Intelligence Taskforce). But, when people start mysteriously disappearing, the Doctor finds that a powerful force has come to Earth. Calling for help from the Time Lords, the Doctor learns to his horror that the whole universe is under attack, and the Time Lords have no help to send him. That is, until the Time Lords realize that they can send him himself...that is help from his two earlier incarnations. And so, with all his pluck and courage, the Doctor(s) set off to confront a most powerful and dangerous enemy, a Time Lord exiled beyond time and space who has become all-powerful and is looking for revenge!
This book was originally written to accompany a 10-year anniversary television special of the same name. It has the same story as the special, but goes beyond, putting some extra flesh on the story, making it a cracking good read! I have seen the Three Doctors special, and am still glad that I read the book. It has a fascinating and positively gripping story. I give in an enthusiastic recommendation!

Format: Paperback
Throughout the book Dicks works in little character moments, such as Hollis (a name change from the television story's Ollis) reflecting on how all the women in his wife's family can never stop talking or the Brigadier's reflections as he slowly comes to terms with the fact that UNIT's headquarters has been transported to another world and not, as he initially tries to tell himself, Cromer. The consequences of the Doctor meeting with other incarnations is generally brushed over, with the impression being given that the Time Lords regard the First Law as a social rather than a scientific one. Nevertheless the Brigadier's difficulty in accepting that there are two Doctors running around until he actually sees both of them together (and then realises that the man on the screen is a third one) helps to demonstrate the difficulties of understanding that someone can be in two places at the same time.

I am sure that, as with all of these Classic 'Who' novels, I shall thoroughly enjoy this one; they really open up and add flesh to the 'bones' of the TV versions! I also thought that I should say that I was very impressed, both with the speed of delivery (arrived well within estimate on 4th Jan), the packaging and the quality of the item (no cracks in the case and all CD retaining clips intact. Having had to buy a pack of empty 4xCD cases to replace previously damaged ones (NOT from this supplier) I was relieved not to need one for this item!
