Gritty Realism

Ian Marter's love of gritty realism has it's fullest expression here. One of the most memorable and best realised Troughton tales is lovingly brought to life as Marter presents a gritty tale in adult fashion. Tobias Vaughn strikes the reader as a heartless, power-driven corporate type and the Cybermen (and UNIT) are well-served but it is Packer who really impresses here. On-screen he seems a stock-standard henchman but in the book he really comes across as a thoroughly nasty piece of work. Sadistic, violent and totally without any redeeming features, Marter almost seems to pay obsessive attention to his excesses - particularly in the scene where he draws back to kick Jamie full in the face. What a rotter!

An action thriller in every sense of the word. Make sure you get a copy of this one...
