This features the 6th Doctor and Mel (Bonnie Langford), and the back cover says that it's set between "The Trial of a Time Lord" and "Time and the Rani". However, that doesn't really narrow it down too much, since the 6th Doctor regenerated at the start of "Time and the Rani" (and Colin Baker wasn't even in the episode), so what they're effectively saying is "This is one of the 6th Doctor's stories that took place during a big gap", and there are apparently several other novels set in that same...more

There has always been something about the idea of the Doctor and his companion leaving on uneven terms that has always intrigued me, despite the ugliness of the scenario – doubly so if it is the Doctor who causes the break up. At the beginning of The Quantum Archangel, this very thing is happening between the Doctor and Mel, and it colors the rest of the novel, adding a layer of depth to the Doctor and Mel’s respective scenes. What do you do when you’re a c...more

This story is a sequel to the aired Jon Pertwee (Third Doctor) story, "The Time Monster", which I re-watched prior to reading it. That was a good idea - several of the guest characters from that story re-appear in this one.

The Quantum Archangel features the Sixth Doctor (Colin Baker) and Mel. The book opens with the Doctor and Mel recovering from a disaster -- and Mel is so devastated she decides to leave the Doctor. But when he drops her off, not only is he off by three years, but he discovers...more
These are the kind of Doctor Who books I like!
Craig Hinton has taken an enormous of Doctor Who history and tries to see where he can fit bits of it together to form a whole. Then he takes a bunch more history and dumps it in because it would be cool to read about and ends up with this brilliant book.

It starts as a sequel to the 'Time Monster', not one of my favorite Third Doctor TV episodes. He then adds in the Master, some great characterization of the the sixth Doctor and Mel (who is so much...more

A really ripping good Who adventure! This is paced liked the best Who stories because just as you think one problem has been solved, another quickly replaces it which is much worse. Adding to the chaos, and my enjoyment, was the return of the Master who is absolutely fantastically evil in this book!

A sequel of sorts to "The Time Monster" though it involves Doctor #6 and Mel, who really doesn't do to much in this book as she has walked out of the TARDIS and the Doctor's life. Several previous Wh...more
A good, solid romp that dials it up to 11: The Master, big cosmological super-beings, continuity references up the yahzoo. Hell, I'm a pretty sad Doctor Who fan as far as they go, and I got lost pretty quickly amongst all the shout outs.

But I liked it, in the end. Good stuff.

It's a great book! I loved it.

As controversial as the 1970s 3rd Doctor story from which it was spawned. Count me among the supporters. This sequel is just...WILD! A big & brash middle finger to all those who dislike "The Time Monster" don't know what you're missing.

Another excellent effort from Craig Hinton. Love this book because it's a sequel to a classic Doctor Who story and because once again Craig Hinton has made reading a Sixth Doctor story enjoyable.
