Description

Christopher Hamilton Bidmead (born Christopher Theodore Bidmead) wrote three Doctor Who TV serials, all of which he also novelised.

Christopher Hamilton Bidmead (born Christopher Theodore Bidmead) wrote three Doctor Who TV serials, all of which he also novelised. They were In the Hollows of Time, a two-part (forty-five minute) story for the cancelled season 23, and a four parter, Pinacotheca (.

Frontios is the third serial of the 21st season of the British science fiction television series Doctor Who, which was first broadcast in four twice-weekly parts on BBC1 from 26 January to 3 February 1984. Set in the far future, the serial involves the alien Gravis (John Gillett) enslaving the last surviving humans to mine the planet for use as a spaceship for the Gravis.

So coming to it now as an older Christopher H. Bidmead's adaptation of his third (and final) classic Doctor Who script, "Frontios" restores parts of the script that were dropped either due to budget constrnts or they were considered too dark at the time, making this seem like a glimpse of what could have been on our screens.

The TARDIS drifts too far into the future and despite the Doctor's plan to be away as soon as possible, Tegan convinces him to visit the last vestiges of humanity on the planet Frontios. Frontios is a planet under siege, with meteor showers occurring regularly - indeed, the TARDIS materialises during one, and some of those in authority wonder of the events are linked. While plainly not welcome, the travellers find themselves unable to leave when the TARDIS is destroyed in a second meteor shower. What is causing these? Why do bodies go missing? And how will the Doctor, Tegan and Turlough ever leave without the TARDIS?
A return effort from Christopher Bidmead, probably best known for authoring the last Fourth and first Fifth Doctor stories 'Logopolis' and 'Castrovalva', adapts his own script of this Fifth Doctor serial.
'Frontios' is not up to his earlier work in terms of quality, but is still a decent enough story. This story also sheds a little more light on Turlough, which is welcome and long overdue. Of course, one cannot help but wonder what happened to Kamelion when the TARDIS was destroyed? There are a few niggling things like that which detract from the story.

great read if you like classic Doctor Who and need something to read on a bus trip or train ride. I bought it to read while I took the BART from Richmond to Fremont. It was the perfect size for such a trip.
