Minor classic

Peter Ling's contribution, faithfully adapted by himself, really pushes the boundaries of "Dr Who" and takes the TARDIS somewhere truly new. Dark and creepy with the main characters taken to, literally, nowhere the Land of Ficton where they eventually end up is, if anything, even darker than the limbo they'd just escaped. In a place where the greatest threat is one's imagination even the most innocent happenstance can harbour great menace. And what a clever piece of writing discipline Ling sets himself by limiting Gulliver's dialogue to only that provided by Dean Swift! A great opportunity seized passionately with both hands. It's a shame he didn't write more. Superb.
