Timewyrm: Genesys

Timewyrm: Genesys is the first book in the "New Adventures" series, as well as the first of four books in the "Timewyrm" series. It is an enjoyable story, marred only by the somewhat choppy bit at the end which links the story to the rest of the "Timewyrm" series. Clearly a bit of a break from the TV series, as it contains some sexual references. The Doctor and Ace are pretty much the same as in the late series, though.

Recommended.
Companion: Ace.

Evolution

Evolution is a good Missing Adventure. The story fits quite well into the 'Sarah Jane Smith' era of Doctor Who, and I can see this story easily as a TV serial. It might have made a better story for the third Doctor, though(iirc Mr. Peel has said it was originally written for him). Some have complained about some problems with the pseudo-science in the story...but I think that is exactly what makes it fit in so well with Doctor Who.

recommended.
4th Doctor, with Sarah Jane.
