    Hi, thanks for the great website! I just wanted to mention that the story with Ace and the termite mounds is covered in the DWM prelude to this novel, and so it is technically not unrecorded.

    "At the end, how exactly does the Master manage to lock the Doctor out of the TARDIS? He appears to simply toggle the lock from the inside, which prevents the TARDIS key from turning. Which isn't how locks work."

    That is exactly the way a Yale lock works - and most deadlocks. There is a small toggle that prevents the key from turning (and the inside knob from turning). Am I misunderstanding this statement?

    An animated reconstruction of the 4 episodes was released in March 2019 as both colour and black and white using the original soundtracks as featured on the audio release and has a few special features on both discs. It also has the original audio version which was released on cassette thrown in for good measure. Check it out.

    Thin Ice has 1814 as the last great frost fair, but that doesn't necessarily mean that there can't be ater frost fairs that aren't great. That's probably the best way of reconciling the two stories. But good spot on the apparent contradiction.

    What about the fact that according to S10 Thin Ice (and history but that's irrelevant) the Last great frost fair in in 1814? How did they go to the frost fair? Are we sure this story is set during the 1890s? Is the frost fair in this story unofficial? Seems like Justin Richards didn't research the Frost fair enough before writing his story

    World War 2 started when the Nazis launched an unprovoked invasion of Poland, at which point Britain and France both honoured their commitments to defend Poland in the event of such an attack. (Yes, this only applies to the European theatre, but since we're talking about the Nazis, that's fine in context).

    You claim that "your ignorance is vile" on the basis that this article doesn't parrot the ideas of genocide apologists like the people you list is somewhat bizarre. But this is a cliff-notes version of history provided as background to a Doctor Who book. Which makes your complaint look really out of place.

    What was posted here is a simplified version of the facts as understood by the overwhelming majority of historians. It is here to provide some basic context for anybody who reads Timewyrm: Exodus but hasn't learned about this bit of history. The novel draws on the mainstream account of history, rather than extreme right-wing fringe theories.

    "The Nazi regime was responsible for causing World War 2 and the Holocaust."

    Try reading Udo Walendy's "Who started World War 2?", Nicholas Kollerstrom's "How Britain initiated both world wars", and ANYTHING by Carlos Mattogno, Jurgen Graf, Germar Rudolf or Carlos Whitlock Porter.

    Ugh! Your ignorance is vile.

    You missed out the next line.

    "This is my timey-wimey detector. It goes 'ding' when there's stuff..."

    This is widely acknowledged to be one of the wittiest lines in new Who. It dispels all notions of technobabble, and still manages to move the plot along by linking exposition from elsewhere in the script. And like or loathe it, 'timey-wimey' then became a common term in the show from then on.

    This is the story that tells why The Judoon couldn't be on Earth, The Peacemakers (and by extension Challoner) are somewhat interesting, though, having The Judoon would have been way better, and there isn't really a plot, though, this opens up visits to every single capital on Earth in the 1910s, they have never have been opened.

    Um... You might want to rewatch The Daleks' Master Plan. Specifically Escape Switch.

    It could be between The Daemons and Day of the Daleks, Day of the Daleks and The Curse of Peladon or The Curse of Peladon and The Sea Devils. It's up to you which of those three gaps you would prefer it to fit into.

    Tragedy Day gets off to a good start with the media conspiracies but stumbles and crashes by the end. Crispin's insecurities and Shrubb's attempted Celebroid rebellion are introduced far too late into the story, and they might have gotten some room to breathe if not for the whole Friars of Pangloss nonsense dragging out the ending. On top of that, the Vijjans had no real role to play beyond being slaughtered. Disappointing.
