    "How does the Master know about Rose Tyler absorbing the Time Vortex?"

    He's had at least a year with the Doctor's TARDIS to himself, which presumably includes a log of some kind.

    Not his future...
    Author: Jay Mudd

    He recognises the Countess from his brief adventure after his first jaunt to Earth, when he insisted the Time Lords show him that everyone had been returned to their timelines.

    Terrance Dicks mentions this adventure, but skips over the details as this 2nd Doctor adventure is covered in a flashback during the 6th Doctor book, Players.

    I'm hoping we get an explanation of how the doctor spent his final days in his second incarnation cos big finish will be exploring the season 6b period of the second doctor and I'm also hoping we get an explanation how the doctor regenerated into his third incarnation

    The Doctor recognizes the Countess from their encounter in 1915 but this happened during the Doctor's sixth incarnation, ie his FUTURE.

    Links update
    Author: Jay Mudd

    This can now be considered a "recorded adventure". In classic Dicks fashion, it was mopped up by World Game quite neatly in the epilogue.

    "The Doctor visited the Duke of Wellington in 1861 to congratulate him on Waterloo, and cleaned up at faro at a gambling den. The following day, he went to see Prinny, who suggested that he deposited it with a friend who had just opened Chumley's Bank. The Doctor set up an account for use of himself and his direct descendants in perpetuity (i.e. other incarnations)."

    The I-2 Pen given to Sarah-Jane.
    Author: Timothy Snelling

    With the younger and older (present day) versions of Sarah-Jane Smith in the same time frame, when the pen was initially activated wouldn't the Voracians have immediately picked up two signals coming from both same pens?

    The Monk
    Author: Oliver

    I believe the Monk allying himself with a military Ice Warrior nest is a reference to the Doctor Who Magazine comic strip '4-Dimensional Vistas', which involves the Monk allying himself with a group of Ice Warriors.

    brinkmanship
    Author: Timothy Snelling

    pg279: 'That's the second time I've played brinkmanship in as many weeks...'
    IoD is apparently placed between Pertwee's final two outings as the Third Doctor in The Monster of Peladon & The Planet of Spiders, though I see no real evidence to suggest this. Howsoever, the story unfolds over a period of almost 2 weeks and prior to this, there is also Amorality Tale tucked in between the two tv adventures; the point being that the Doctor must therefore be referring to the outcome of Amorality Tale as his previous act of 'brinkmanship' - a story that also take place over a period of 2-3 week, having already been at the location 2 weeks prior to commencement of that venture.

    Given what happens in the story, it can't be a coincidence that the backpackers are called Jack and David - the names of the two Americans in 'An American Werewolf In London'.

    Season 6b and Jamie/Victoria "shipping"
    Author: David Mantell

    A crucial point about Season 6b is that it creates potential for a post-Fury From The Deep reunion and happy ending for the romance between Jamie and Victoria, so cruelly interrupted at the end of Fury.

    His attachment to Susan means he is upset when she leaves
    Author: David Campbell

    1) Susan clearly does want to go with David - she breaks down and cries "Oh I do love you David I do" just before the Doctor locks the door. The only thing stopping her from leaving is her sense of guilt over abandoning her grandfather.
    2) The Doctor is clearly upset at having to lock Susan out of the TARDIS. Even before he does so, Barbara has already worked out what is going to happen and is a willing accomplice inasmuch as she drags Ian out of a conversation with David so that he and she can be inside the TARDIS. He is still in a state of buried grief at the start of The Rescue when he sleeps through the TARDIS landing "for the first time ever"
    3)He is only ever "mean cruel and nasty" to Susan in the pilot episode which was retconned in favour of what we see in the broadcast version. The pilot episode Doctor would never have stood for the broadcast episode Susan's threat to leave the TARDIS and stay in 1963. The boradcast episode Doctor does not shout and growl at Susan like the pilot version does. The Doctor is upset in The Daleks over the disagreement with Susan over whether a hand really touched her in the forest and is relieved when Barbara offers to talk to Susan to smooth things over.

    One more goof - the first and most obvious
    Author: Greg Dunn

    Who threw the rock at Sally Sparrow in the pre-titles? Surely not the Weeping Angel. (And why didn't it creep up on her and zap her while she wasn't looking at it anyway?) But who else then? Did the Doctor go back and set up some elaborate - and impossibly perfectly timed - catapult system? Or was he just there in the shadows at the same time? (That might explain the lack of movement of the Angel, I suppose, if the Doctor kept one eye on it most of the time.)

    I too was so bored and disgusted with this offering that I missed out whole chunks simply so that I could get to the UNIT/Doctor bits and they were pretty uninspiring. On the whole, a disgraceful use of DW and should be erased from DW canon, prose or otherwise! I wouldn't want to be in this authors head!

    Another possible source is the Star Trek: The Next Generation novel "Gulliver's Fugitives" by Keith Sharee. It too featured a planet on which fiction was illegal. That being said, its plot goes in a completely different direction.
