Product Description


"Making the most of atmospheric music and sound effects to capture the sense of impending doom which builds throughout this story, and with Russell admirably stepping back into Ian's shoes after almost 50 years, this is a remarkably successful adaptation... Highly recommended."

About the Author

Nigel Robinson is an English author, known for such works as the First Contact series. His first published book was The Tolkien Quiz Book in 1981, co-written with Linda Wilson. This was followed by a series of three Doctor Who quiz books and a crossword book between 1981 and 1985. In the late 1980s he was the editor of Target Books' range of Doctor Who tie-ins and novelisations, also contributing to the range as a writer. He later wrote an original Doctor Who novel, Timewyrm: Apocalypse, for the New Adventures series for Virgin Publishing, which had purchased Target in 1989 shortly after Robinson had left the company. He also wrote the New Adventure Birthright, published in 1993. In the 1990s, Robinson wrote novelisations of episodes of The Tomorrow People, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles and Baywatch and the film Free Willy. Between 1994 and 1995, he wrote a series of children's horror novels Remember Me..., All Shook Up, Dream Lover, Rave On, Bad Moon Rising, Symphony of Terror and Demon Brood. In 1996 he continued to write the Luke Cannon Show Jumping Mysteries series, containing four books, namely The Piebald Princess, The Chestnut Chase, The Black Mare of Devils Hill and the last in the series, Decision Day for the Dapple Grey. By 1997 he had also penned a trilogy of science fiction novels First Contact, Second Nature and Third Degree.

HASH(0xa36ec768) out of 5 stars A Masterpiece April 6 2000
By A Customer - Published on
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

HASH(0xa371c15c) out of 5 stars Better than the television story it adapts Oct. 9 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on
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.
