Doctor Who Library This is seriously poking the establishment in the eye with a sharp stick The Company has defeated humanity some distant time in the future, not by military force but by sheer economics The Collector has control over the colony on Pluto before it was demoted from planet hood where it has six suns Six The work units, i.e., the population, pay tax on everything, even the air they breathe which is treated with a chemical to keep them docile The Doctor and Leela, along with support from K9, meet a group of outcasts called the Others who defeat this tyrant The Doctor does something clever with numbers to bring the Collector s personal defeat after the People rise up in rebellion having turned off the air conditioning This story, to me, hadof the obvious tongue in cheek humor,of the almost silly zingers that was to become the hallmark of Graham Williams run as producer of Doctor Who I don t know if there was any intentional political eye poking in this story as I m not familiar with late 70s British social climate but it sure seemed like there could have been As much fun as the dialog was, the story was kind of grim The everyman character ground under the heel of the Company to the point to where the relative of a deceased loved one can t even pay the excessive death tax, driven to the point of suicide even knowing that walking out in the light of the sun is forbidden to all but the chosen few Gruesome The Collector is probably one of my favorite one time baddies in this era of Doctor Who He has real personality that is executed very well by the author The Sunmakers is a great story with a nice, fairly tight plot and good characters who develop over the course of the story Highly recommended I learned this weekend that this was Louise Jameson s favourite Leela adventure I watched the episodes shortly before reading the book and I can see why It s a great story, future distopia, where humans are forced to work and drugged into compliance It s a great comdemnation of capatalism and taxation, and ends with a successful workers rebellion The novelisation only adds a few details to the story, but it does so very well Definitely one of the best Leela stories. return return Doctor Who and the Sunmakers is probably the best of these nine Leela novelisations Dicks clearly appreciated Robert Holmes script and seems to have really got into the

rescues, k 9 action and an odd alien bad guy.Nothing earth shaking, but clever and entertaining. Although I don t agree with all of Terrance Dick s reinterpretations in this book he tones down a number of script writer Robert Holmes moments of black humour , it s clearly a story he is enthusiastic aboutand the result is another satisfying novelization from the 4th Doctor s era. This was an odd story, even for Doctor Who, especially the resolution, which basically made no sense The villain just sort of panics and quits in a way that just doesn t make sense in terms of what has just happened.On the other hand, the story includes some interesting bits of social commentary, such as the fact that none of the workers have any idea what they re actually manufacturing, or even who owns the company, under circumstances where at least some of this information is important It f This was an odd story, even for Doctor Who, especially the resolution, which basically made no sense The villain just sort of panics and quits in a way that just doesn t make sense in terms of what has just happened.On the other hand, the story includes some interesting bits of social commentary, such as the fact that none of the workers have any idea what they re actually manufacturing, or even who owns the company, under circumstances where at least some of this information is important It felt like the story better captured the personality of the Doctor s companion, Leela, better than it did the Tom Baker version of the Doctor, which is kind of weird Her reasoning was bloodthirsty but practical in a couple of scenes, in a way that very much reminded me of the character as portrayed in the series.This is not an essential read, even for fans, but it s a quick one, and the social aspects of the story areinteresting than the SF parts, in some ways I didn t really know anything about Doctor Who before I read this and I really enjoyed it I think I ll check out the TV show now.
