Note: A print-on-demand edition (linked via the Lulu logo above) was released in November 2016 to allow Australia/NZ readers to order the book with much cheaper postage costs. It is identical to the original version, except for having a glossy cover instead of the original’s matt cover.
‘I’m sorry Doctor, it’s my moral duty.’
The Ambassadors of Death (1970) is Doctor Who at its most adult. A story with no true villains despite its action-haro Doctor, it exposes the uglier side of human nature while offering an optimistic view of humanity’s future. It shows how fear alone can warp good intentions into horrifying situations, and that humanity is at its best when offering trust, compassion and kindness even in the face of mortal peril.
LM Myles is a Hugo-nominated editor, writer, critic and podcaster.
