BBC Past Doctor Adventures
Byzantium! Psi-ence Fiction

Bullet Time was the forty-fifth BBC Past Doctor Adventures novel. It featured the Seventh Doctor. It also featured Sarah Jane Smith. She is not travelling with the Doctor; rather the Doctor's actions drift into Sarah's contemporary life.

Publisher's summary Edit

"You're not the Doctor I knew."

"Perhaps you never knew the Doctor."

Hong Kong 1997: the handover to Chinese rule is imminent, and investigative journalist Sarah Jane Smith is on the trail of corruption in the Far East.

Street gangsters lurk round every corner. And when one decides to confide in Sarah, she is thrown headlong into danger. What are UNIT doing in Hong Kong, and why are they following missing backpackers? What is causing a spate of strange and unnatural deaths? And how is Sarah's old and trusted friend the Doctor involved? More importantly, whose side is he on?

The truth can now be told, and the outcome of Sarah's investigations revealed. But will her world ever be the same again?

Notes Edit

  • Although they are never mentioned by name, the aliens that appear on this novel are (or are similar to) the Tzun.
  • It is implied that Sarah Jane Smith may have died at the end of this novel. It was eventually revealed that she did, in fact, die. Her death, along with other former companions of the Doctor, had been engineered by the Council of Eight. Fortunately, the Eighth Doctor defeated the Council, averting the alterations that the Council had made to the timeline, and undoing the deaths of all the companions they had killed, including Sarah. (PROSE: Sometime Never...) Later appearances by her confirmed her survival. (TV: School Reunion)
  • This is the only BBC Past Doctor Adventures novel to feature the Seventh Doctor but not Ace.
