32) Doctor Who - The Edge of Destruction, by Nigel Robinson

Robinson has taken a two-episode story and padded it out with some interesting new material of Ian and Barbara exploring the depths of the Tardis. Unfortunately, Robinson's own prose style is thunderously bad in places. For completists only.

I remember being extremely disappointed by both this and The Sensorites -- on a sentence-by-sentence basis there wasn't a lot wrong with Robinson's writing but over a long distance you could feel it settling in the bottom of your lungs.

The way he frames Zaroff's "Nothing in the world can stop me now!" in The Underwater Menace is pretty much the definition of plonking -- I would defy anyone not to do a better job. I'll leave you to discover the full details when the time comes.

To be fair, is there much that could be done to save The Sensorites or The Underwater Menace?
