YMMV / Doctor Who Novelisations

Go To

  • Author's Saving Throw:
    • Some of the books fixed problems in the televised stories, such as tying up the loose ends of "The Android Invasion" and giving an explanation for the Literal Cliffhanger in "Dragonfire".
    • The First Doctor's out-of-character behaviour in "Twice Upon a Time" is explained as him trying to antagonise the Twelfth Doctor, whom he dislikes.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The prologue of the "Battlefield" novelisation has an appearance by Merlin, who's a future incarnation of the Doctor. And he's ginger.

  • Nightmare Fuel: In the novelisation of "City of Death", Kerensky's death by rapid aging in the very machine he had built is far more horrific than in the televised version. From his point of view, he experiences the rapid aging in real time: "It took Nikolai Kerensky the rest of his life to die."
