This is a rather unique Doctor Who spin off novel ostensibly about a plot to change history by preventing the assassination of JFK, though the great bulk of it follows the efforts of an investigative journalist James Stevens in the early 1970s to look into the events that the reader knows as the plots of the early Jon Pertwee TV stories set on Earth, from Spearhead from Space until Day of the Daleks. For the Doctor Who geek this continuity-heavy read is great fun, though Stevens gets the wrong end of the stick rather spectacularly. The William Hartnell Doctor's companion Dodo Chaplet features in the story in a rather unique and slightly odd way, though I thought it worked well for her character. Enjoyable.… (mais)

This is a Doctor Spin off novel featuring the Jon Pertwee incarnation and Sarah Jane Smith, set between the TV stories The Monster of Peladon and Planet of the Spiders, his swansong. It is set during a real historical incident, a great smog in London in December 1952 which for several days combined natural weather with the effluvia of thousands of coal fires to blanket the city in a choking smog. Several thousand excess deaths occurred, mostly among the very old and very young and those already vulnerable to breathing problems. Here the Doctor is already established in situ at the start of the novel as an East End watchmender ("Fixing Time"), with Sarah incongruously working as a barmaid in a dodgy club The Red Rooms. The main backdrop though is East End gang warfare, centred around Tommy Ramsey's gang, and indeed the first third of the novel was really a gangster story with almost no science fiction elements. But after a Friday noon confrontation between Tommy's and a rival gang, the latter's leader turns into a shape shifting alien. The Xhinn have come to Earth to conquer and absorb it into their empire, adding poisonous gas to the existing smog to wipe out more people, while also taking over the local police forces and using them to capture and kill the population under the guise of evacuating them due to the weather. There are some gruesome set piece scenes here and the Doctor and Sarah must work with Tommy Ramsey to defeat the aliens. Tommy is an interesting and quite an appealing rogue in some ways, despite also being a murderer and extortionist. There are one or two other interesting and rounded characters too, making this a very good and dramatic read.… (mais)

Surprisingly well written and put together. Comes across as a gripping piece of journalism, yet respectably follows and adds to established canon while maintaining the accuracy of real life events.

Content warning for suicide and murder (rather gruesome murder by Doctor Who standards)

London, December 1952. Tommy Ramsey has just served a six-month prison sentence and is looking forward to retaking control of his East End gang. But his group of racketeers, bookies and gangsters are no match for the alien threat that looms over London, weaponizing smog for its own ends… The Third Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith will have to help him out.

This was surprisingly grim and violent for a Doctor Who novel. Even for a novel about gangsters, I found some of the death scenes deeply disturbing. The atmosphere was grey and menacing, much like the smog choking London. This smog is an actual historical event: the Great Smog of 1952. I liked the use of this event to create a vivid Doctor Who story, and the use of a time not too far away from Sarah’s own illustrates just how much change can happen in only 20 years.… (mais)
