This review is from: Doctor Who and the Three Doctors (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.
