A jolly romp.

No one picks up a Target novelisation expecting great literature - but I'm, still surprised by Claws of Axos getting such a low average score. Having just finished it, I'd recommend it to anyone wanting a perfect snapshot of the 3rd Doctor/Jo/Master/UNIT era. Disappointed Terrance Dicks didn't explain how or where the Master got his face from, when he tricked himself past the UNIT guard to get to the TARDIS, but otherwise every box was ticked, it licks along at a great pace, and I can think of worse ways to spend a rainy Sunday afternoon.

Great cover!

One of Chris Achilleos' best covers - this evokes strong memories of watching this when I was a kid. Unfortunately, the TV version is not nearly so scary to my adult eyes today as it was back in the 70s but entertaining nonetheless. I haven't read this one for years but remember it remaining quite faithful to the original - and contains some rather funny moments of incidental humour...
