Companions: Sam and Fitz
Location: Earth, London 1968
|NOVEL By Paul Leonard|
Man is probably the best of Paul Leonard's work but has its problems. For
a start there is far too much leaping about in the Tardis and the plot is
only sporadically followed. Fitz's presence in China is confusing and this
novel does little to show that he has been brainwashed. Sam is okay,
though, and the relationship between Fitz and Maddie makes far more sense
than most other things in this book. Later on a genuine sense of urgency
comes across, but Leonard has presented the Doctor with such an
all-powerful opponent that there is really only one solution all along.
It's an average novel: nothing desperately wrong with it but not
outstanding either. --David J Howe
An adventure featuring the eighth Doctor Who, Sam and Fitz, and set in the Swinging London of 1968. The TARDIS crew are investigating an anarchist group utilizing a drug that seems of an extraterrestrial nature, and how it connects to a series of bizarre, violent events world-wide.
