|Great Episode, Meciocre Novelization|

It really is too bad that Christopher Bailey did not novelize the episodes he wrote. It would have been fascinating to get further exploration of the concepts and traditions that are so much of what makes his two Doctor Who episodes so appealing. Here, Terrance Dicks, who, one suspects, has little sympathy for the Buddhist and multicultural perspective that form the thematic structure of the story, has done his normal serviceable, but largely forgettable writing of the Target novelizations. At least he does not tinker much with the script, so one can recreate the episode while reading.
