It's not surprising that the "Companions of Doctor Who" series of books was dropped; if anything it's more surprising that another two were published (Harry Sullivan's War by Ian Marter and Terence Dudley's novelisation of K9 and Company) after this very unimpressive start. The evil female leader's name is Rehctaht, which probably tells you all you need to know. The plot, such as it is, has Turlough, back on his home planet, reinventing the Tardis and trying to prevent nuclear destruction. There is much confusion of timelines, and too much material hastily thrown together. I think there are about three different novels in here, but it is difficult to tell if any of them would have been any good.

Oh, wow... haven't thought about this one in a while. When I was 15 or so, and my collection of paperback Doctor Who novelizations topped out at about 115, I had Harry Sullivan's War and none of the others. I liked it as a kid, though there was a bit of cognitive dissonance (amiable fifth wheel rendered superfluous by Tom Baker's omni-competence goes home and falls into the plot of a later Roger Moore Bond movie? Mmmkay...).

The evil female leader's name is Rehctaht

Fantastic. I'll get started on a fanfic where she and the Rani team up to procure mass quantities of loyhargil.
