Deadly Reunion was the sixty-third BBC Past Doctor Adventures novel. It featured the Third Doctor and Jo Grant. It also featured all the "UNIT family" characters of Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, Mike Yates and John Benton. The Master also appeared, setting this story firmly in the early period of the Doctor's exile on Earth. This novel significantly expanded on Lethbridge-Stewart's early life and was written by two writers who worked on Doctor Who during the period in which this novel is set - Terrance Dicks and Barry Letts.
Publisher's summary Edit
"With one glance he will destroy your body and wither your soul."
Second Lieutenant Lethbridge-Stewart gets more than he bargained for when he is assigned to map out Greek islands at the end of the Second World War. Even if he lives to tell the tale, will he remember it?
Years later, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart and his colleagues at UNIT investigate a spate of unexplained deaths and murders. Meanwhile, the Third Doctor and Jo are caught up in strange events in the small English village of Hob's Haven.
As preparations get underway for a massive pop concert, a sinister cult prepares for a day of reckoning — business as usual for UNIT. But can the Brigadier help prevent the end of the world? His friends and colleagues are not so sure, because this time, the Brigadier has fallen in love...

- The Master played the drums in the 'Gallifrey Academy Hot Five' — possibly due to the drumbeat in his head. (TV: The Sound of Drums et al) Though due to the fact that it was later stated that the drums were reverse engineered in and not ever mentioned prior to the new series and other reasons for his actions have been given, this is doubtful.
- The Doctor recalls being put on trial by the Time Lords. (TV: The War Games)
- The Doctor tells the Brigadier that "sleep is for tortoises." (TV: The Talons of Weng-Chiang)
- The Doctor mentions that he took boxing lessons from John L. Sullivan. (TV: Carnival of Monsters)
