Comments Doctor Who: The Rescue

  1. Short but sweet Earned its 5th star with the twist of Bennett actually being the monster terrorising Vicki Having not seen the actual episodes I was not expecting that at all I also liked the introduction of Vicki which was great Fantastic little story I will have to go and watch the corresponding episodes now.


  2. This was a great retelling of the First Doctor serial The Rescue , except for one thing the beginning and end I don t know if the author was just in a bad mood or what, but although he did a great job retelling the main story, he bookended it with a lame side story that changed the entire tone of the episode The original story can be found here chakoteya DoctorWho 2 spoiler alertThe gist of the ending of the original story is a happy one, with the Doctor basically telling everyone that everythin [...]




  3. Decent plot, but felt a little padded with monster encounters Also, the main twist is quite easy to guess I didn t anticipate Barbara s big error, however, and the villain was fairly good As for the novelization, it has its rough spots particularly the beginning and end parts , but overall it s pretty well done I do wish Marter hadn t thrown in some of those 80s references that I m sure weren t in the original script, amusing as they were B



  4. Few Doctor Who fans will ever claim the 1965 two part TV version of this story as their favourite However, its novelization is one of the finest in the Target range Ian Marter s sadly final book is a masterclass in how to expand the simple story of a new companion s introduction into something dramatic, funny, powerful, and filled with tension menace A great deal of imagination and skill combine to make this richly expanded tale a worthy epitaph for the work of Ian Marter, who stands with Terran [...]


  5. nhwvejournal 763482ml return return This is the novelisation of a rare two part story, intended purely to introduce the first new companion to join the show since its beginning, Vicki one of two survivors of a spaceship crash on an apparently hostile planet I thought after watching it a few months ago that this was a plot which could manage a great deal of filling out of back story the Doctor s past relations with the natives of the planet, the story of what had actually happened to the human se [...]


  6. At first, I thought Ian Marter was going to lead us on nothing but a journey of extended and philosophical descriptions of the desert landscape of Dido, obviously intent on trying to stretch a two episode throwaway story into a whole book, and I started thinking as well that maybe he should have stuck to acting But really, this book is a brilliant retelling of the serial, with added monsters, dangers, motivations, characterizations, and, yes, descriptions, that make reading this worthwhile than [...]


  7. A really good retelling of the Classic Who story The audiobook reader was great and it really helped flesh out the original story to have a bit insight into each of the characters thoughts and actions.The Doctor, Ian, and Barbara land in a strange cave on the planet Dido The Doctor remembers the Dido natives as a completely peaceloving species but it seems that one member of their race is holding two members of a crashed spaceship the Astra 9 hostage nearby Victoria and Bennet are the only surv [...]


  8. A slightly Star Trek feeling story, as the Tardis crew lands to help the survivors of a space ship crash and discover the natives of the planet may not be as friendly as originally thought.Nice feeling of being trapped and surrounded on this alien world and I like how the first Doctor solved problems by just being smarter than everyone else.Also the story that introduces Vikki as a Tardis companion.


  9. The saddest Doctor Who story I ve encountered so far plot hinges on man s inhumanity to man and mysterious alien races Also, in the dedication we learn that this is the last Doctor Who book by Ian Marter, who passed away after completing the manuscript.Vicki joins the Tardis crew, so it s not a total tear fest.


  10. OK Probably worked better on screen where it was the introduction to Vicki in the aftermath of Susan s departure Suffers from the Agatha Christie curse in that the mystery disappears quite readily if you just check everyone s story properly at the start That said, and like Christie, Marter s style is as much about the journey as the end result.


  11. Ian Marter played companion Harry Sullivan in 1974 5 with Tom Baker After leaving the show, he began writing novelisations, and this is one of his best, a short adventure fleshed out with wit and subtlety.



  12. Very good but definitely suffers from being a two part episode obviously having been stretched to fill a 130 page book.


  13. The Doctor, Barbara and Ian rescue Vicki from being emotionally abused by a psychopathic killer who killed off her parents, crewmates and an entire peaceful alien civilization.


  14. Fun read, Ian Marter always manages to make the novelizations darker than what appeared on screen And fleshing out The Rescue is no mean feat.
