Master of the Daleks

Master of the Daleks

Released March 2015

The Master has proven time and time again that, despite often overly convoluted plans in which he himself is the instrument of his own destruction, he is more than capable of going toe to toe with the Doctor on an intellectual level, highlighting the ease with which the Time Lords could run rampant across all of time and space should they so choose. Likewise, the Daleks through sheer force of will and steadfast belief that they are the supreme beings in the universe have proven to be arguably the Doctor’s greatest foes for entirely different reasons. With both …

The Monster of Montmartre

Released March 2015

The Doctor and Liv’s search for the TARDIS takes them to Paris, uniquely bringing the Daleks squarely back into focus for the first time since Dark Eyes 2 as the endgame to this saga starts to form in Matt Fitton’s ‘The Monster of Montmartre.’ s

Though the sidestep from the main crux of this immense sage featuring the Daleks, the Eminence, and the Master after so many tightly interlinked stories was an odd but satisfying note to begin this final box set on, it absolutely allowed Liv as well as the relationship between the Doctor and Liv to develop …

Pushing this incarnation to his …

Kerblam!

Reviews ‐ November 19, 2018
Kerblam!

Chris Chibnall wasted no time in bringing his vision of Doctor Who to life, offering wonderful insight into very relatable human situations no matter the flashiness or grittiness of settings that has so far also included two harrowing looks at recent history outside of the UK. Yet while new writer Pete McTighe ensures that raw emotion and humanity is never far from the forefront in ‘Kerblam!’ as the Doctor tries to find the source of a mysterious note asking for help packaged with the fez she ordered two regenerations ago, there is also a distinct air of the Russell T …

The Trial of a Time Machine

Released November 2018
SOME SPOILERS FOLLOW

The New Adventures novel range for many fans represented the official continuation of Doctor Who between the broadcasts of ‘Survival’ in 1989 and Paul McGann’s television movie in 1996. Taking the Seventh Doctor into more robust settings and plots than television could ever afford, these novels also saw the continuing development of the darker and more manipulative version of this incarnation who began to manifest alongside Ace on screen. Of course, the accumulation of so many tales and characters also meant a bevy of necessary continuity, and so picking up the narrative from the tail end …

Warlock’s Cross

Released November 2018
SOME SPOILERS FOLLOW

Concluding the trilogy of adventures featuring UNIT and medical officer Daniel Hopkins that began with the Fifth Doctor in ‘The Helliax Rift’ and continued with the Sixth Doctor in ‘Hour of the Cybermen,’ ‘Warlock’s Cross’ by Steve Lyons reunites the Seventh Doctor with Elizabeth Klein as the truth behind UNIT and the eponymous research facility threatens to become public.

The story of Doctor Elizabeth Klein is a fascinating and complex one, and it’s far more necessary in this story that so prominently brings personal demons and turmoil to the forefront to at least have a fair understanding …

Rule of the Eminence

Released November 2014

With the Eminence entering into an alliance with the Master and not knowing nor suspecting that it is simply being used as a means of delivering ultimate control of humanity over to this Time Lord who is all too keen to assist with its spread around Earth, the war between the Eminence and humanity takes an unexpected turn in the finale to Dark Eyes 3, Matt Fitton’s ‘Rule of the Eminence.’

The Master is certainly not one to shy away from assuming grandiose titles and positions, and the Doctor has no trouble believing that he has inserted himself as …
