    Considering what Victor Pemberton managed to do with his Fury From the Deep novelization the expectations for this adaptation of his rather mixed LP audio story from the 1970s were high Unfortunately this is just not wort the time Best to simply ignore it and pretend very easily that the 4th Doctor Sarah had other interesting adv

    Going into this book I was not expecting much with it The reason is that is was based off an audio production that was done back in the 70s I was pleasantly surprised by how much better it was than expected Though it did have its flawsThis is another run of the mill story about an alien race trying to take over the Earth Compared to other stories around this time UNIT is nowhere in sight In the televised series UNIT was

    returnreturnOn the one hand it scores over the audio version on which it is based by having a larger number of active characters and a wider view of the action On the other hand Pemberton's writing style is absolutely dire with a cringeworthy phrase on almost every page In addition he seems unsure which Doctor he is writing for with the appe

    The best thing about this book on CD was the included interview with Elisabeth Sladen RIP Sarah Jane Otherwise it was a predictable and boring if well acted story Fish people invade mayhem abounds whole race destroyed by deus ex machina It was like re reading the worst of the Venom stories I would say skip it but there was that interview with SarahThanks for reading

Doctor Who and The Pescatons

Re the population is bewildered and trembling beneath the violent onslaught of a merciless invaderWho or what is the mighty Zor whose green slanting luminous eyes glare out from the dark of night like giant emeralds What is the powerful alien force tha. Doctor Who The Pescatons started out as the first Doctor Who audio release way back in 1976 As an audio release of its time the audio story had only three actors Tom Baker Elisabeth Sladen and Bill Mitchell if memory serves me correctly and much of it was told in Baker s narration So that brings us to this book published twenty five years later and the uestion is it worth buying Victor Pemeberton takes the novel as an opportunity to flesh out the audio story and its 45 minute length Pemberton adds new characters to the story and even manages to give it a bigger scope then the original audio story managed By adding in new characters and subplots especially astronomer Professor Emmerson Pemberton makes this a treat for those who have listened and enjoyed the original audio version of the story Yet the expansion of the story is when this novel hits problems By expanding the story and adding characters one would expect them and Pemeberton in effect to add some depth to the original story The answer is that they don t really While they bring something the audio story lacked which is to say that the story needed development in terms of bringing in scenes and character to add depth they don t really endear the novel at all In fact one reads them and wonders Pembereton added them in at all most of the time So back to the uestion is it worth buying The answer depends on a couple of things If like me you listened to Pescatons and enjoyed this novel is worth checking out as an alternative version of that story If you have not heard the original audio then get it first then think about getting the novel Otherwise you might not enjoy the story as much as you should
