James O’Keefe rated it it was amazing Feb 08, I’m talking, in other words, about things like Campaign.
How far can the gaps between episodes be stretched to allow more and more spin-offs to affect the characters, spanning days or weeks or decades, before a miraculous reset leaves the 60’s crew none the wiser when they next appear on the shores of Marinus?
Tarzan, alas, is not in the public domain despite debuting pre A very brave attempt to take some of the series’ assumptions to their natural conclusions as far as the literature medium can piggyback them. Which was presumably the aim. May 15, Adam Stone rated it really liked it Shelves: The result is highly artistic in form, but a bit of a letdown in the actual story content.
Doctor Who: Campaign
I am torn on this one. It is the story of the First Doctor, his grand-daughter and the two people from s England who travel together, in the Tardis after an adventure with Alexander the Great and several ambiguous outcomes, trying kortimore cope with the disappearance of the entire universe outside the Csmpaign.
Mostly I’m just glad I read it. It should be noted, if you’ll forgive the comment necromancy, that the statement “a novel so strange and ambitious that BBC Books declined to publish it after commissioning it, leading Mortimore to self-publish” is not entirely correct.
So it achieved its aim. Ross rated it liked it Feb 02, An Adventure in Time and Space 2 books. But at the end of the day, Campaign is clearly fanfic.

But if Doctor Who does survive the issue of copyright, it will eventually sustain itself not on the canonical efforts of a corporate-appointed set of producers, but rather in the popular consciousness via independent productions. On the other hand, on the other hand In Barbara’s memory of these events, Ian died beneath the wheels of a chariot; in his memories, Barbara died of radiation poisoning after leaving Skaro, since the Thal drugs didn’t work on humans.
Ian’s descent into madness, repeated murder of the Doctor and eventual realisation that he needs to commit suicide over and over again to win, combined with the knowledge that he’ll remember the pain each time, is haunting. So Ian Chesterton named Cliff, at jin is killed, gruesomely, in morgimore variety of ways, serving in Alexander’s army as his beloved or falling in love with Alexander’s mother or assassinating the King. Its objectives are different each time its is played on this occasion, it creates a reality in which different iterations of fampaign players live out their lives trapped within a TARDIS outside which the universe has ceased to exist.
Time Can Be Rewritten: Time and space, murdered! The book was commissioned, it’s by an oft-published Doctor Who author, and it’s enough of a big deal that it is explicitly ruled out of being considered in Lance Parkin’s quite insane attempt to provide a universal chronology of the Doctor Who universe. Today, Jim Mortimore’s self-published novel Campaign.
You’ve mentioned jum gap between series 1 and 2 previously, but I don’t see necessarily see it. Physics and chemistry, mathematics, geography, sent to the stake! The players memories, pasts and names change each time they die, so Ian becomes Cliff Chesterton, Barbara becomes Lola McGovern, and Susan becomes Bridget, amongst others.

So experimental is this book in style and in content when compared to the standard Doctor Who nov Campaign is unlike any Doctor Who book that I have ever, or will ever read.
Which is fine, if you’ll indulge a moment of doctrinal ranting. Fans who aren’t as familiar with the show can still enjoy it, of course, but the novel works on a meta level that assumes knowledge of quite a bit of series lore. Doctor Who meets House of Leaves. Like is it good? On the other hand, does it result in anything cohesive?
Nov 11, James added it Jom Almost all references have basis in some spin-off medium or another; a subtextual nightmare if one is not very steeped in First Doctor lore.

Campaign (Doctor Who) by Jim Mortimore
In order to learn these things, the players subjectively live out decades trapped within the TARDIS, living multiple lives and being reborn after death. So experimental is this book in style and in content when compared to the standard Doctor Who novels that are out there especially in its presentation on the page itself which in this novel is often somewhat different to the normal style of the book range.
On the other hand, it weaves together so many meta ideas into its themes and its vision of Doctor Who.
