A novelisation of a kid s science fiction show of the 1960s done with a minimum of style and finesse and in a distinctly workmanlike fashion.It s a real shame, as the actual TV show has long been wiped from existence, and so a novelisation would be one of the best ways to appreciate it Written twenty years after broadcast, it s therefore irritating that Emms has done so little to develop his own story that he didn t stop to realise that most people reading this wouldn t be kids under the age o A novelisation of a kid s science fiction show of the 1960s done with a minimum of style and finesse and in a distinctly workmanlike fashion.It s a real shame, as the actual TV show has long been wiped from existence, and so a novelisation would be one of the best ways to appreciate it Written twenty years after broadcast, it s therefore irritating that Emms has done so little to develop his own story that he didn t stop to realise that most people reading this wouldn t be kids under the age of ten and that he didn t show a littleambition than just quickly slapping his screenplay into prose and then picking up his cheque As what we have here is far from inspired A particularly gruesome example of his lack of care is the fact that the henchwomen aren t given any names, simply labelled One, Two and Three You might get away with that when three recognisably different actresses are playing them, but in book form it just looks unspeakably lazy.What makes it evengalling is that there is stuff in this book about The First Doctor coming to the end of his life and awaiting regeneration, as well as having two hearts Neither detail would have been even hinted at in this story when the TV version was broadcast It s truly annoying that Emms felt the need to add that window dressing, but saw no need to add the greater depth his story so obviously needed.On a dying planet there are two crashed spaceships one piloted by beautiful women who are actually evil one piloted by monstrous creatures who turn out to be good Appearances can be deceptive is the moral here The story originated in the 1960s and in its portrayal of beautiful women, who have moved past men, and now brainlessly follow orders while dismissing any creatures who aren t like them, one can see a kick in the shins to feminism Indeed, reading this one is surprised that the term femi nazi was still a couple of years away from being coined Surely if Emms had thought of that in relation to Galaxy Four , he d have been right proud of himself Really enjoyed this A thrilling read and a fantastic ending. While a lot of Doctor Who fans would love to see Marco Polo or The Tenth Planet returned complete to the archives, I have to admit part of me would like to the chance to see the long lost season three premiere story Galaxy Four A lot of that credit goes to fond memories of this novelization that I read during my formative days as a Doctor Who fan This isn t necessarily the best first Doctor story, but William Emms adaptation of his story works well on the printed page Free of budget li While a lot of Doctor Who fans would love to see Marco Polo or The Tenth Planet returned complete to the archives, I have to admit part of me would like to the chance to see the long lost season three premiere story Galaxy Four A lot of that credit goes to fond memories of this novelization that I read during my formative days as a Doctor Who fan This isn t necessarily the best first Doctor story, but William Emms adaptation of his story works well on the printed page Free of budget limitations, my imagination ran wild I m excited that an episode of this long lost story has been recovered And while I m sure it can never live up to the images in my mind from the original novel and BBC audio release of the story, I still can t help but be a bit excited to finally see it whenever the BBC sees fit to put it on DVD Quite a joy to read, which is also surprising This story no long exists on film or video, aside from one episode, from the television series The only way to see it is as a reconstruction by means of surviving audio tracks and still pictures And as an amazing job that was done by those who painstakingly accomplished it, the story is difficult to watch However, this book does a terrific job of conveying the story in an enjoyable way, while also adding some flavor to the character of the Doctor Quite a joy to read, which is also surprising This story no long exists on film or video, aside from one episode, from the television series The only way to see it is as a reconstruction by means of surviving audio tracks and still pictures And as an amazing job that was done by those who painstakingly accomplished it, the story is difficult to watch However, this book does a terrific job of conveying the story in an enjoyable way, while also adding some flavor to the character of the Doctor and his companions It has changed my opinion of the story, and I am excited to revisit the reconstructed video telling I have a feeling I will like it better this time around With only episode 3 of the tv series surviving I had very little visual stuff to go off I actually really enjoyed the novel adapting his own scripts let Emms flesh out both the villain Maaga and the Rills The book is very well written, and surprisingly the episode long chunks work quite well as opposed to the usual shorter chapters Despite all this, I can t help thinking it would have made a rather dull story on tv hopefully one day it ll all be recovered or at least animated though. It s been many years since I read a Doctor Who book 30 years ago I read many of them and enjoyed them along with the British Doctor Who TV shows While I liked this book, it was rather a lot of fluff As usual the Doctor lands his TARDIS Time and Relative Dimensions in Space time machine on an alien planet Unbeknown to him, the planet only has a few days before it disintegrates There are two other time traveling space ships on the planet, both disabled The beautiful women on one ship are r It s been many years since I read a Doctor Who book 30 years ago I read many of them and enjoyed them along with the British Doctor Who TV shows While I liked this book, it was rather a lot of fluff As usual the Doctor lands his TARDIS Time and Relative Dimensions in Space time machine on an alien planet Unbeknown to him, the planet only has a few days before it disintegrates There are two other time traveling space ships on the planet, both disabled The beautiful women on one ship are ruthless The other ship has ugly creatures who are kind |E-PUB ♃ Doctor Who: Galaxy Four ♵ Noveliztion of the Doctor Who TV episodes story titled Galaxy Following a skirmish in deep space, two alien spacecraft have crash landed on a barren planet The Drahvins are a race of beautiful females, led by the imperious Maaga The Rills are hideous tusked monstrosities, accompanied by their robotic servants, the ChumbliesWhen the Doctor arrives, he discovers that the planet will explode in two days time The Drahvins desperately ask for his help in escaping the planet and the hostile RillsBut things are not always as they seem 42 WORD REVIEW Galaxy Four is perhaps the closest Doctor Who ever came to straight up exploration science fiction, complete with doomed planet and rampant xenophobia William Emms, novelising his own script, delves into the characters thoughts and so adds considerable depth to the on screen action. The ending was kind of abrupt, but I liked the pacing, the characters and the storyline It also had a nice moral at the end I ve reading about fifteen of the 1st Doctor series, and this has been one of the better ones. Very much of its time, this is a straightforward novelisation that deals with interesting themes and concepts And it s beautifully written I enjoyed it And I like all the characters.
