Product Description

About the Author

Eric Pringle was born and bred in Morpeth, Northumberland, and took a degree in English and American Literature at Nottingham University. After spending several years working in insurance, he ended up writing and editing various publications, including staff newspapers. After deciding to take up writing as a career, Pringle wrote plays and one-off episodes for series on HTV, Yorkshire TV and BBC 2, including The Cornforth Practice in 1974. His play, Jogger, was made by Radio 4 in 1983 and a play in the series The Ten Commandments was transmitted by the BBC's World Service. Much of Pringle's more recent work has been for the radio, including adaptations of The Wolves of Willoughby Chase and J. B. Priestley's The Good Companions. His 2001 Radio 4 play Hymnus Paradisi about the life of composer Herbert Howells won a Sony Award. Also in 2001, his children's novel, Big George, illustrated by Colin Paine, was published by Bloomsbury. This has been followed by two sequels: Big George and the Seventh Knight (2002) and Big George and the Winter King (2004).

HASH(0xa477e5d0) out of 5 stars What is the secret of Little Hodcombe? Jan. 13 2001
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Doctor takes the TARDIS to the village of Little Hodcombe, in order to visit Tegan's grandfather. Initially it appears that they have arrived in the wrong time period, but in fact there is an historical reenactment of a battle during the English Civil War being carried out. But there is something more at work behind the scenes, and Tegan's grandfather is missing...
Based on a 2 episode TV serial by the scriptwriter Eric Pringle, this book seems less rushed than the original series (which probably should have been 3 episodes long). With a little more time and room, the story is better in this form than the televised version.
Unfortunately, the story itself has some problems not uncommon in Doctor Who. The Doctor has two companions, Tegan and Turlough, who each end up with not much to do. Instead, some supporting characters that feature in this story get to do all the companion-type things. One would have hoped that the story could have been written a little differently to allow the regulars larger roles.
However, the idea behind the story is quite a good one, so this particular failing is probably something more likely to be seen in retrospect rather than as the story progresses.
HASH(0xa46c91b0) out of 5 stars Missed invasion Feb. 9 2006
By Bill Huebsch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Doctor and his companions, Tegan and Turlough, are on their way to a pleasant visit with Tegan's grandfather in 1984. However, upon arrival, it looks like everyone the meet is dressed for the 17th century. Turns out the town is going to reenact a battle from the Civil war.

However, something is wrong (isn't it always when the Doctor is around). Tegan's grandfather is missing and strange things are afoot at the old church. And the reenactment is turning into a far more serious and deadly affair than most of the villagers thought. Oh, and the vargaurd force of an alien invasion is driving the town's leader into madness. Can the Doctor help? Or will evil win the day? Lots of action in this one, with a higher page count than most of the Doctor Who novelizations. Still a quick, fun read though!
