The Doctor Who Book Club Podcast

This month we dip our toes back into the proverbial Gareth Roberts pool with the New Adventure The Highest Science, featuring the Seventh Doctor and Professor Bernice Summerfield.  From the back cover:

Sakkrat.

Many legends speak of this world, home of an ancient empire destroyed by its own greatest achievement.  The Highest Science, the pinnacle of technological discovery.

When the TARDIS alerts the Doctor and Bernice to the presence of an enormous temporal fluctuation on a large, green, unremarkable planet, they are not to know of any connection with the legend.

But the connection is there, and it will lead them into conflict with the monstrous Chelonians, with their contempt for human parasites; into adventure with a group of youngsters whose musical taste has suddenly become dangerously significant; and will force them to face Sheldukher, the most wanted criminal in the galaxy.

You may remember Gareth Roberts from our review of the Missing Adventure The Well-Mannered War (also featuring the Chelonians, who made their first appearance here) and television episodes such as “The Lodger”, “Closing Time”, and the very recent “The Caretaker”.

So…without further ado, sit back, relax, grab a can of bubbleshake, and listen in as we discuss Gareth Roberts’ The Highest Science.
