April Books 2) The Eye of the Giant, by Christopher Bulis

The Brigadier saw the Doctor’s image, took an incredulous step forward and came close to clutching his head. ‘Oh, good grief! What’s he up to now? Doctor! Doctor! I told you not to try any more of these experiments. Come back here at once, man!’
Now that I've read all of the First and Second Doctor novels, I'm getting started on the Third Doctor, with this excellent pastiche of King Kong: the Doctor and Liz, and eventually UNIT as well, are dragged back to the Pacific in 1934 where an alien presence is threatening to destroy the world as we know it, and at the same time must deal with leakage from a parallel timeline. Very entertaining, with an ingeniously imagined alien which finds our planet too cold for it to function, and a villain who is not so much evil as just vain and not very bright; I think this is the best of Bulis's Who books that I have read (and I have read seven others).
