    Starts out feeling like it will be a straight historical adventure and then out of nowhere the alien shows up Felt very tacked on and I enjoyed the historical aspects of the book much as it was a bit of history I knew only a little aboutGood

    Fairly well written historical novel set in 1240 Kiev involving the sacking of the city by Mongol hordes The twist comes with a confused alien robot soldier that landed in it's escape pod centuries earlier and is activated during the story seemingly killing in a random manner Not enough of the Doctor in it for me although

Bunker Soldiers Past Doctor Adventures

Is companions find themselves trapped in Kiev 1240 a city under attack by the Mongols They are enforced guests of the governor Dmitri whose assistant Yehven believes that if the coffin is desecrated then all who threaten us will be destroyedWhen the coffin is opened by a group of men a terrifying skull faced. An interesting first doctor story set around the fall of Kiev to the Mongols in 1240 AD A time and place of history that I wasn t too familiar with but which did indeed make an interesting historical doctor who taleThis is one of those stories where the early doctor is deliberately avoiding meddling in time or changing history to any great extent trying to play time tourist with Dodo and Steven in tow as nearly generic companions throughout the taleThe threat out of timespace that becomes key to the doctor doing something does turn out to be rather unexplained and a bit too modern from that which a real story from the series would have been like in the 1960s but the author does reasonably well on the historical parts

summary Bunker Soldiers Past Doctor Adventures

Creature is freed and kills a member of the group before fleeing A spate of violent deaths ensue but this creature certainly isn't killing indiscriminately How is this creature choosing its victims Where has it come from and most importantly can the Doctor do anything to halt its murderous trail of destructio. One of the best and epically violent Doctor Who historicalsand a peerless depiction of the 19663rd season team of the First Doctor Steven Dodo Particularly wonderful are the major passages told in the first person from Steven s pova much under rated character I believe William Hartnell would have LOVED to have sunk his acting teeth into a story such as this
