    One thought on “Doctor Who: The Indestructible Man”

    1. The Doctor, Zoe, and Jamie get thrust into a war on Earth in the future, and discover that the Earth government has been controlling its people using drugs (ie: soma from Brave New World). With the help of the titular indestructible man, the trio try to set things right in a situation that seems to be getting worse before it gets better.I was going to give this credit for at least having gusto in that it is very original, despite being a convoluted mess that is really REALLY hard to read, but th [...]

    2. A two hundred and eighty page tribute to the works of Gerry Anderson? There's no possible way this should work. And yet, somehow it does.Gerry Anderson, for those who don't know, was a British gentlemen responsible for the creation of a number of SF TV shows that were aired in the sixties and seventies, series like "Thunderbirds", "Captain Scarlet" (both involving puppet characters, marionettes) and the later live-action "UFO" and "Space: 1999". Many are remembered fondly even today and influenc [...]

    3. I understand that this novel is in part a send-up of Gerry Anderson TV programs. However, it is remarkably readable without one's ever knowing about them, as I didn't until I read the reviews after I had finished the novel. I have not watched "Thunderbirds" or "UFO" since I was a child, so I did not catch any of the allusions. These allusions, however, do explain the weird piece of throwaway business with Zoe and the purple wig. I will, therefore, review the novel as I read it, knowing nothing o [...]

    4. First off, I have to state that I'm an American and don't know so much about Gerry Anderson's body of work (I watched Thunderbirds when I was little but retain little memory of it; enough to understand some of the references at least). This being a loving tribute to Anderson's own particular oeuvre, one would think, then, that the book held no interest. I found to my delight that was not the case at all!I found the book to be well written, engaging (even with no understanding of 2/3 of the refer [...]

    5. Let's get one thing straight: despite the fact that the Second Doctor and Zoe Heriot are on the cover, The Indestructible Man is not a Doctor Who novel. Rather, it's a fan novel for Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons, with bonus references thrown in for other creations of Gerry Anderson's as well. All the various pertinent names of characters and organizations have been changed, of course, but this thing is very clearly a Captain Scarlet/Doctor Who crossover fan novel.That said, this is not actua [...]

    6. nwhytevejournal/2053145ml[return][return]A slightly unusual Past Doctor Adventure here: the Second Doctor, Jamie and Zoe end up in a future which is based very strongly on the work of the late Gerry Anderson, the Tracy family of Thunderbirds fame translated into the Sharon family with their Lightning rescue craft, and various other adaptations from parts of the Andersonverse that I don't know as well.But this future is a dystopia where society had collapsed globally, and which is under threat fr [...]

    7. I have to admit that this was one of the slower starting Doctor Who novels I've read, but it was worth it for the final payoff. Jaime and Zoe are separated on a near-future Earth that has been attacked by aliens for no apparent reason. The Second Doctor was killed in front of them, but the Earth forces believed he was one of the aliens and they did some experimental treatments that prevented his regeneration, making them believe the Doctor is one of the aliens' Indestructible Men of the title. W [...]

    8. This novel is very, well, novel. As the photo-cover and title suggest, it really is a cross-over with all the Gerry Anderson stuff. Mostly it crosses Doctor Who (Second Doctor, Jamie, Zoe) with Captain Scarlet -- the indestrcutible man, and with UFO, thus Zoe's purple wig. But other Anderson shows make an appearance, including, Thunderbirds.I was expecting, therefore, for this novel to be very funny, and it wasn't, from what I remember it was actually kinda' depressing. However, I did read it aw [...]
