A Masterpiece April 6 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Edge of destruction is the first and only official Doctor Who adventure to feature only the Doctor and his three companions, never leaving the TARDIS.
After a tremendous explosion: The Doctor, Susan, Barbara, and Ian find themselves stranded inside the TARDIS, with no light and only an emergency oxygen supply.
When nothing can be found to be wrong with the TARDIS, the four travelers come to the conclusion that there must be an entity aboard which has sabotaged the ship. In pairs or individualy they begin to search the ship. They each find themselves in situations that lead them to suspect each other of the sabotage.
Tempers and emotions run high from beginning to end, and the characters reactions and personalities are brought out in extreme depth as they realize they are on THE EDGE OF DESTRUCTION

Better than the television story it adapts Oct. 9 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Doctor Who story that this novel adapts is something of an oddity: a two-episode story set entirely in the TARDIS. The story itself is marred by some very peculiar decision on the acting styles of some of the regulars.
Fortunately, in this novel, we are spared this. This novel largely focusses around Barbara as a mysterious force invades the TARDIS and some of the travellers, particularly Susan, act oddly. Tensions between the characters increase as the Doctor becomes suspicious that Ian and Barbara have caused the problem by endeavouring to return to Earth by meddling with the control console.
The main strength of this book is the insight into the thoughts of the characters, particularly Barbara. While it is possible to watch the TV serial and develop views about what they are thinking, this book takes the guesswork out of this (which is good, given some of the odd performances mentioned above).
The weak point of this book is that it begins (again!) with a recap of the first meeting of the TARDIS crew. If you were reading the novelisations in broadcast order, this would be the third and has the third depiction of this event.
Overall, a good novelisation that surpasses the original.
