      Produced at the time when Target novelizations of Doctor Who stories were limited by their page count, "Infero" captures the essential story that takes place across seven episodes but still feels a bit lacking. Terrance Dicks' retelling of the classic serial is faithful and straightforward. But in a story that feature a parallel universe with parallel versions of several regular characters, a bit more background might have been nice. Again, Dicks is limited by a page count. It'd be fascinating t [...]

      Dicks does a great job with this novel capturing the atmosphere to perfection one of the best Pertwee stories 8/10

    3. Christian Petrie says:

      Like regeneration, with Target books you never know what you are going to get. For an adaptation of a televised story, this has to be one of the best. The five stars is based when compared to other Doctor Who books. Terrance Dicks has done an outstanding job of adapting this story.The plot is two fold, an attempt to retrieve a special gas from the Earth's crust and a parallel Earth doing the same thing. The drilling may not seem that important, only that it is being ran by someone who would have [...]

      A really wonderful audio book version of the classic serial Inferno, based off of Terrance Dicks' novelization. Gorgeous cover art of the Primord Bromley (taken from the paperback edition published by Target), the book is read by Caroline John, who portrayed the Doctor's companion in the serial, Liz. I confess that apart from once listening to an audio version of The Keep, so long ago I can't remember who read it or even when and where I obtained it or what became of it, this is my first audio b [...]

      nhwvejournal/1032344ml?#cutid4[return][return]I'm glad to say that Doctor Who - Inferno, published in 1984, is one of Dicks' better novelisations. He has judiciously trimmed Don Houghton's original seven episodes (deleting its least attractive aspect, the sexist banter between Greg Sutton and Petra Williams) to make a good TV story an exciting book. The twist of the parallel world plotline makes the Third Doctor himself the viewpoint character for a substantial chunk, and this always brings out [...]

    6. Travis says:

      The Third Doctor, trying to escape his exile on Earth ends up on an alternate earth where things have taken a turn for the fascist and there are some scary similarities between this Earth's Project Inferno and the one happening on his earth.What if he can only save one Earth?Decent adaption of the TV episode.Bit sad as this is the last story to feature Liz Shaw and she doesn't get a real leaving scene. She's here now, next story, she's gone.

      Novelization of the first Pertwee episode I remember seeing, although it may have not been my "actual" first, it's one that I enjoyed. The requirements of the novelizations slim down the story somewhat, but it seems to benefit from that, leaving out some of the extraneous in-fighting that filled the 7 episode story.

    8. Daniel Kukwa says:

      A prime example of how to skillfully condense seven intense 1970s episodes into an exciting, concise novelization, that doesn't lose any of the power, drama, or excitement of the original story. Terrance Dicks, firing on all cylinders

    9. Becci says:

      My least fav episode, but one of the best books.

    10. Steve says:

      Just brilliant, one of Terrance Dicks' finest novelisations. How he managed to compress a 7-part TV story into 126 pages is beyond me.

    11. Mary JL says:

      Terrance Dicks wrote a lot of the novelizations of Doctor who. This is one of the better adaptions. I thought the writing was pretty fair for a Tv adaptation.

    12. Karen says:

      Drilling into Earth's core releases green goo that turns people into primordial mutants. Yep, I'll buy that!
