Doctor Who: The Highlanders (Doctor Who Target Library It's also refreshing to have a Doctor Who book with the English as the irrational heartless bloodthirsty monsters (seriously, a completely fair description for this and other periods of history). The images in my mind during this read were far more vivid than I imagine the film A steady, interesting, tense read. He also adapted several of his scripts into novelisations for Target Books.

The Highlanders is the completely missing fourth serial of the fourth season in the British science fiction television series Doctor Who, which was first broadcast in four weekly parts from 17 December 1966 to 7 January 1967. This serial is the first appearance of Frazer Hines as companion-to-be Jamie McCrimmon. Although audio recordings, still photographs, and clips of the story exist, no episodes of this serial are known to have survived.

Doctor Who is a British science fiction television programme produced by the BBC since 1963. Hundreds of novelisations of the series have been published by various publishers, the majority based on the original 1963–1989 run of the series. The first three Doctor Who serials to be novelised were the 1960s serials The Daleks, The Web Planet, and The Crusade (published as Doctor Who in an Exciting Adventure with the Daleks, Doctor Who and the Zarbi, and Doctor Who and the Crusaders).

Don’t,’ cried Polly, ‘please, I give up!’. There was a scuffle of leaves above her and then Kirsty’s head appeared over the edge of the pit. ‘It’s your self!’ she exclaimed. ‘It’s your self!’ she exclaimed startled she dropped the dagger. Polly, with a quick twist, managed to turn away as it stuck into the ground beside her. ‘Careful, you idiot!’ shouted Polly. Then, angry because she’d been so afraid, said crossly ‘Of course it’s my self – who did you think it was?’. Och, I’m sorry,’ said Kirsty. I thought maybe a Redcoat had fallen into the animal trap – and I wish it had been.

A good adventure for those Who fans who wish they could see the lost serials. Highlights include man in kilts, women in kilts, and the aftermath of the battle of Culloden, where a lot of people got kilt. l

A warning to other Doctor Who fans about Amazon.com product reviews: at the present time, there are two prior reviews on this page. They are both from the year 2000, which is five years before the product on this page was released. Wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey-stuff? No, They're reviews of the NOVELIZATION of "The Highlanders."

This is not the product page for the novelization.

This is the product page for the AUDIO RECORDING of the original TELEVISION BROADCAST of "The Highlanders." The sound tapes of the actual TV show. The dramatized script, as it played, with the original cast. (Audio recordings are all that's left of many 1st and 2nd Doctors' serials, as the BBC destroyed many of the videos back in the 70s.)

Amazon plainly doesn't get that putting 12-year-old reviews of reworked and reformatted versions of things - or in other words, slapping reviews of apples onto oranges - doesn't actually help anyone.

I'm here to put in a good word about these old sound recordings. The BBC has salvaged what it could and provided linking narration by original cast members, and it works surprisingly well. For anyone who enjoys Patrick Troughton and early Doctor Who, they're a treat.

And often, depending on your tastes, quite a lot more entertaining than the novelizations.

'The Highlanders' is a novelisation of a Doctor Who series set at an important point in the show's history. Doctor Who was in the process of reinventing itself: a new Doctor was in place and this story saw two further significant changes. It is the last of the truly historical stories, and it introduces Jamie, one of the Doctor's most popular travelling companions.
Set just after the Battle of Culloden in 1746, the Doctor, Ben and Polly emerge from the TARDIS and encounter a small group of highlanders escaping from their defeat at Culloden. The obviously English accents of the TARDIS crew result in conflict, which escalates when English soldiers arrive.
This story is one of trust and betrayal. The TARDIS crew are all fairly well-served by this story, but some of the Doctor's antics (adopting numerous disguises) seem quite light compared to the story's serious tone.
Gerry Davis was the script editor at the time this show was made, and produces a straightforward adaptation. Like many such, we don't get into the character's heads too much.
As a (more or less) straight historical, casual science fiction readers should probably leave whatever copies of this book can be found to Doctor Who enthusiasts.
The original tapes of this story have been destroyed, but the soundtrack has recently been released by BBC. It is available at Amazon's United Kingdom site.
