    This is the story that tells why The Judoon couldn't be on Earth, The Peacemakers (and by extension Challoner) are somewhat interesting, though, having The Judoon would have been way better, and there isn't really a plot, though, this opens up visits to every single capital on Earth in the 1910s, they have never have been opened.
    Just Terrance Dicks again.

    You have "Cleopatra's bodyguard taught him how to use a sword" under Unrecorded Adventures. Should be under continuity - he said that in Masque Of Mandragora.

    Um... You might want to rewatch The Daleks' Master Plan. Specifically Escape Switch.

    RE: the whole Monk being the Master thing, where does the War Chief fit into all that? And what about Big Finish's two new incarnations of the Monk?

    I think this book could be better by having no continuity changes/ different changes

    It could be between The Daemons and Day of the Daleks, Day of the Daleks and The Curse of Peladon or The Curse of Peladon and The Sea Devils. It's up to you which of those three gaps you would prefer it to fit into.

    Tragedy Day gets off to a good start with the media conspiracies but stumbles and crashes by the end. Crispin's insecurities and Shrubb's attempted Celebroid rebellion are introduced far too late into the story, and they might have gotten some room to breathe if not for the whole Friars of Pangloss nonsense dragging out the ending. On top of that, the Vijjans had no real role to play beyond being slaughtered. Disappointing.

    The Dalek Invasion of Earth, not Planet of Giants. Also I'm pretty sure everyone on this website has watched that episode.

    "His attachment to Susan means he is upset when she leaves and he comes to regard his new companion Vicki as a surrogate Susan. "
    He wasn't upset when Susan left. If you watched the episodeThe Planet of the Giants, the Doctor basically locks Susan out of the TARDIS with the lame "excuse" that she belongs with David. She didn't want to leave at all and was devastated when he did that. He was mean, cruel and nasty to her all through the first series. Then he goes and picks up Vicki and treats her better than he did is own granddaughter! Frankly, if I was there I'd smack the Doctor so hard, he'd fly through Time and Space without needed a TARDIS.

    Paul Cornell crashes Doctor Who into the punk movement (something the programme never approached in a meaningful way), views the UNIT years through a delightfully paranoid lense, a mini Land of Fiction in the form of the Mediasphere, and brings back not one, not two but three returning enemies that were pretty rubbish. No Future is one busy novel, but it's all good fun, except for Ace whose antagonism with Bernice is really grating on me now.

    The sisters seem to named after the Jacksons: Michaela, Latoya, Germaine and Janet. The Doctor mentions a frog with a broken leg and then says was it in a car accident which could be a reference to the game Frogger.

    Filling the odd absence in '80s Doctor Who of a video game-centred plot, The Nightmare Fair has quite a few good ideas, but the inclusion of the Toymaker, who hasn't been on the programme since 1966, is a puzzling one and could have early been replaced with a new antagonist. At least Williams recognized The Celestial Toymaker hadn't gone nearly far enough with the deadly games idea and pushed them in a more engaging direction. It's also fun to see him knock the yellow peril stereotypes and how Mandarin robes don't belong on Gough.

    Lyons tries to push the ideas of The Mind Robbers further than before to fair results. This is some really clever writing with a few fantastic moments like the Scrabble conversation, but the tensions of the TARDIS gang begin to really feel forced after a while and I didn't need an explanation for the Land of Fiction.

  • Reply to: Invasion of the Cat-People   9 months 2 weeks ago

    In Star Trek: The Animated Series (1973-4) there was a regular character Lieutenant M'Ress, who was the Enterprise's relief communications officer (so sometimes replacing Uhura). M'Ress was a female Caitian - a felinoid race in the Federation. While no other details of the race were given on screen, expanded information appeared in official publications, starting in 1974, that the Caitians came from the planet Cait which is in the Lynx Constellation (later further specified as 15 Lyncis).

    Therefore, looking at your Continuity 6th paragraph, the one on Cat People, while you identify the sources of several of the other Cat People races in the Roots section above, you have missed that the felinoids of Cait and the Lynx constellation are lifted as directly from Star Trek as others come from Flash Gordon and Larry Niven.

    Under continuity you say:

    "COBRA is the Commons Office Briefing Room something or other, who decide things such as raids on hostage situations."

    COBRA is the actual, real world (not made up for the book) UK emergency response committee that is convened in cases of national emergency such as terrorist attacks, threats to the UK, public health emergencies, natural disasters etc. The membership is not fixed and depends on who is relevant to the particular situation that called for it being convened, but would involve government ministers, senior civil servants, emergency services representatives, and security service and military representatives if appropriate. It is often (but not always) chaired by the Prime Minister.

    Whilst the name sounds vaguely cool and tough when it is announced that the PM has convened the COBRA committee (which always means there is some kind of emergency with national repercussions), it is actually just a straightforward acronym for the room in which this emergency committee meets in the Cabinet Office building in Whitehall - Cabinet Office Briefing Room A ... COBRA.

    I think the only book that is truly unrepresented is Time's Crucible. As to the other "Nobody" entries above...

    Apocalypse: Raphael is mentioned near the end.
    Warhead: Vincent and Justine get in touch with Lord Tasham and help him clean up his act.
    Lucifer Rising: Legion is mentioned by Spandrell at the start.
    Parasite: The Artefact is mentioned as well, see above.
    Sanctuary: Guy is more than *mentioned*, although he's not actually in it himself...
    Zamper: Kadiatu mentions the Zamps, somebody else mentions Zamper re spaceship design.
    SLEEPY: Apparently Cinnabar and Byerley's wedding is mentioned.

    Also it's Hamlet Macbeth, not Hamish - but I get the damn thing confused as well.
