Cold and comfortable, but not deepFeb. 25 2001

The Doctor and Mel arrive on Iceworld, a trading colony with a hidden treasure. They run into Sabalom Glitz, an old "friend" of the Doctor, who enlists them into his treasure hunt - for the Dragon's Treasure. Also on Iceworld is a young girl called Ace, who will play an important role in the Doctor's life. And then there are some other people on Iceworld, and not very nice either. And the dragon... A substantial turning point in the Seventh Doctor's life, this story has its good and bad points. Not the least one being the Doctor's very odd decision to hang himself off a cliff by his umbrella. On a more positive note, Glitz's return is excellent and the villain of the piece, Kane, had a lot of potential. Ian Briggs writes the book in a way that adds to the TV serial, with insights into the characters. But, overall, it is a fairly shallow story, so read it quickly and don't think about the finer details.
