In 2003, having lost the licence to continue with their unique range of Doctor Who novellas, Telos Publishing launched a spin-off range of short novels. Time Hunter is based on one of the strongest Doctor Who novellas, Daniel O’Mahony’s The Cabinet of Light. Any such series is going to be fighting something of an uphill battle - spin-offs of spin-offs abound in the broader Whoniverse of novels and audios, but every step...






Andrew Cartmel’s Animal was the mooted Season 27 st-ory that I knew the least about. Given that the provisional running order for the 1990 run was reportedly Earth Aid  /  Ice Time  / what would become Crime of the Century, then this story may have proven to be the season finale and thus Sylvester...






Drafted into the television series to play a dashing “space pilot” substitute for a dashing departing schoolteacher, within just a few weeks Peter Purves found himself playing a strong right-arm without even the merest whiff of a back story, and even less in the way of distinguishing traits. However...





CLICK HERE TO VISIT IMMATERIALGood morning, afternoon, evening or night.


My name is Daniel Tessier. With crushing inevitability, I have decided to start my own blog. You probably know what to expect from me by now - reviews and musings on books, movies and TV shows that I have recently enjoyed (or not enjoyed, if ’m feeling disagreeable); general ramblings on things I find interesting. Much of it will be related to Doctor Who, as most of my contributions to The History of Doctor have been, but not all. I do have a few other interests. There may even be some material on myself, if and when I actually get up to anything interesting. Plus, hopefully, some fiction, when I feel creative.


The blog, Immaterial, is now live and can be viewed by clicking here. My first two reviews for it, Faction Paradox: A Romance in Twelve Parts and James Mortimore’s Skaldenland, can also be found here on The History of the Doctor (links below), but from now on you’ll have to visit the blog to keep up with my latest reviews and ramblings. I will be providing a final exclusive review for The History of the Doctor though - a retrospective look at the Time Hunter series, which should be appearing shortly.


If you enjoy the blog, please let me know. If you don’t, keep it to yourself. I’m fragile, you know.












Personally, I wouldn’t have thought that a bank would be a particularly good setting for a Doctor Who story. The high pressure world of finance is a potential sort of drama, to be sure, but not of the kind I that associate with the series. To be blunt, it would strike me as a boring setting for a Who adventure. I would, of course, be entirely wrong...








The latest trio of eleventh Doctor novels give us tales hinging on temporal twisting and timey-wimey shenanigans. As a result, they feel very much a part of the latest series, which has been far more concerned with achronological jiggery-pokery than ever before. Touched by an Angel takes this...








Paradox Lost is probably my favourite title for a Do-ctor Who novel since Return of the Living Dad (which nothing can match for punning brilliance). Now that’s out of the way, I can focus on the book. George Mann is a successful author who is no stranger to the Whoniverse, despite this being his first...








July’s audio exclusive comes from the pen of children’s screenwriter Darren Jones, whose credits range from Pinky and Perky all the way up to Dennis and Gnasher. Just like March’s Gemini Contagion, this project began at the Chelt-enham Screenwriters’ Festival in 2009, where its would-be...






Just how powerful is the Doctor? Is he an ordinary man, albeit one from another planet, who happens to have been in-volved in universe-rocking events? Or is he some kind of god, walking amongst the peoples of the universe, his human-like for-m merely a disguise? It’s a question that has been asked again recently in light of the increasingly powerful Doctor...
