Incidentally, my Facebook Connect link from LJ keeps failing. I keep re-enabling it and fiddling with settings but without success - the last failure was complaining about permissions. It's not a big deal since only public posts get cross-posted, those are mostly random Dr Who pictures, and I'm not sure my facebook friends are all that interested in them, but it is annoying so I was wondering if anyone was experiencing anything similar and, if so, if they had a fix.
Target put out three novelisations of stories that were commissioned for the cancelled series 23 of which this is the only one by an unknown writer/producer and not featuring an returning villain. Wally K. Daly has a minimal wikipedia entry which nevertheless suggests he was an interesting writer of Radio plays. I recall almost nothing about the book beyond it was the weakest of the three stories (all of which were weak, suggesting somewhat that they were quickly written up from half-finished ideas or at least early drafts rather than adapted from completed scripts) and that the alien villain seemed to be something of a duplicate of the popular Sil character from the previous season (and who appeared in the third of these novelisations).
This was one of the first novelisations I ever bought (though I already had The Abominable Snowman - IIRC I bought this one because I recognised the yeti on the cover) and it completely terrified me. I seem to recall setting it aside because I couldn't continue it, and eventually got through it by reading backwards from the end in chunks.
It doesn't seem that scary these days.
