Imperial Moon was the thirty-fourth BBC Past Doctor Adventures novel. It featured the Fifth Doctor, Vislor Turlough and Kamelion. This was the only novel to feature this line up of Doctor and companions. This novel was one of three novels in which Kamelion has appeared.

Publisher's summary Edit

The year is 1878. Three ships of the British Imperial Spacefleet have just set course for the Moon.

The discovery of a mysterious diary, recalling a seemingly impossible journey, takes the Fifth Doctor and his companions back to a crucial moment in history — and into certain danger. For the moon of 1878 is far from deserted.

Trapped in a crater teeming with hostile animal and plant life, the Doctor and Turlough must join the British explorers on a hazardous journey to battle for their freedom before the long lunar night descends. For, lurking in the shadows, are the Vrall — cunning and utterly ruthless killers.

With the loss of one of their ships — and their captain — the British team become embroiled in a struggle to survive that tests duty and honour to their limits. Meanwhile, Turlough finds himself with time in his hands and the Doctor must make a choice that will determine the future of an empire — and Earth itself.

Characters Edit

References Edit

Time Edit

  • The Doctor uses a time safe to send his earlier self Haliwell's diary. He considers it an acceptable temporal paradox if used sparingly.
  • Time Lords have the responsibility to choose "the fate of untold millions yet unborn" when faced with a point where history might diverge if events aren't stopped or become public knowledge.
  • Parallel universes exist separated by a millisecond of time and a nanometre of space. If they don't diverge cleanly, it becomes an alternate timeline that destroys the original.

Individuals Edit

  • Kamelion impersonates Prince Albert and tells Queen Victoria to end the British Space Programme and to look to domestic concerns.
  • Captain Richard Haliwell is captain of the ship Cygnus, Captain Sinclair is captain of the ship Lynx and Captain Green is captain of the ship Draco.
