Williams suffered many brickbats as producer during the tumultuous late 1970s..this novelization reveals that he's a fantastic writer, with a keen turn of phrase, and a surprisingly powerful command of the bombastic 6th Doctor, as played by Colin Baker.

A writer who used to work on the show (Graham Williams)? This time round the Toymaker has set up shop in Blackpool, and the Sixth Doctor and Peri have to pursue him through a deadly amusement arcade to prevent him from Taking Ovar The Wurld, helped by a young man named Kevin Stoney (who must have been named for the actor who had portrayed the two great early Who supervillains, Mavic Chen and Tobias Vaughn).[return][return]It's not hugely inspiring stuff, but no doubt would have been rescuable with decent performances and effects (and coming at the start of the season it would probably have got them).

The prose is somewhat overdone, so it's more of a slog than I like, but plenty of popular Missing Episode with the sixth Doctor and Peri.

A lot of people don’t like the season that replaced this one – the overarching ‘Trial of a Time Lord’ story – but where it scores over the stories whose place it took is the way it refined Colin Baker’s Doctor as a good-natured hero rather than the bombastic, argumentative, verbose leading man he started life as.

Eighteen months later th'How often do I have to win before you give up? Anxious fans worldwide, worried that this might put an end to the Time Lord's travels, flooded the BBC with letters of protest.
