Doctor Who Handbook: The David Segal Years

DOCTOR WHO is the world’s longest-running science fiction
television series. Each handbook provides both a broad overview
and a detailed analysis of one phase of the programme’s history.
David Segal is the second Doctor to take the helm of the
TARDIS for The Doctor Who Audio Dramas. Coming into
the role only two years after the series premiered with Vincent
Savage, the show was still considered an afternoon hobby,
nothing to be taken too seriously.

Of course, that didn’t take into account the plans that the cast
and crew had.

This book is an in-depth study of David Segal’s tenure as the
Doctor, including a profile of the actor, a critical summary of
each story in which he starred, and a scene-by-scene
examination of the 24h season story, THE PARADOX. This
book owes its thanks to David J. Howe and the other authors
of previous Handbooks whose tireless work continues to
enlighten us about this enigmatic Time Lord.

Season 33 – Production code 11G2

Written by Raymond De Long and David Segal

In the Books of Old, the Doctrines and Covenants by which we live are laid out for all to know and take to heart. Obedience is Life, and Life comes from Obedience. Those who disobey face Annihilation.

It is through obedience that our crops will grow, that goods are produced, and our society will function. And it is through our strict duty to the Covenants laid out by our forefathers that the Sleeper will not awaken.

Tend to your tasks. Do not look at the Temple. Do not speak of the Terror. And the Dothan will not return.

The Great Key has been returned to Gallifrey, but not before the Doctor sacrifices his life in a climactic battle with the Master.

While the Doctor tries to recover from his latest regeneration, the Master seizes upon the opportunity afforded by the Doctor’s confusion and new appearance by switching bodies with him — the Doctor’s mind in the Master’s body and the Master’s mind in the Doctor’s — and returns to Gallifrey in a bid to take over the High Council Presidency and retrieve that which he lost: the Great Key.

The Un-Men

Episode 133

Season 27 – Production code 10C68

Written by William Helson

“The reasons for the war have changed.”

“Why are you bombing your own people?!”

“I think. I feel emotion. I have wants, needs.”

“We shall never have peace as long as we have the enemy!”

“Evacuate complex! Incoming fire! All personnel evacuate complex!”

“I’ll stay…”

The attacks continue long into the night. A hospital, a school, all destroyed. And still the attacks come. The enemy is relentless…or so the people are told.

The Doctor, Susie Jo, and Comdr. Triyad know differently.

On a planet that is rabidly anti-technology, the war has already been won and lost. But still the attacks come…only this time the reasons for the war have changed, and only genocide can be the answer.
