BBC Eighth Doctor Adventures
Interference - Book One The Blue Angel

Interference: Book Two (The Hour of the Geek) was the twenty-sixth BBC Eighth Doctor Adventures novel. It featured the Eighth Doctor, Fitz Kreiner and is the final novel to feature Samantha Jones. It also featured the Third Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith. This novel and the novel that preceded it Interference - Book One are the only two-part novels ever published as part of a Doctor Who novel range. This novel continued with the stories began in Interference - Book One. This novel includes one of the only prose based regenerations of the Doctor. This novel is Lawrence Miles' penultimate contribution to the EDA range, and his last contribution to the Faction Paradox arc. He later spun the Faction Paradox series off into its own universe, distinct from the Doctor Who universe.

Publisher's summary Edit

They call it the Dead Frontier. It's as far from home as the human race ever went, the planet where mankind dumped the waste of its thousand-year empire and left its culture out in the sun to rot.

But while one Doctor faces both his past and his future on the Frontier, another finds himself on Earth in 1996, where the seeds of the empire are only just being sown. The past is meeting the present, cause is meeting effect, and the TARDIS crew is about to be caught in the crossfire.

The Third Doctor. The Eighth Doctor. Sam. Fitz. Sarah Jane Smith. Soon, one of them will be dead; one of them will belong to the enemy; and one of them will be something less than human...

  • When the Doctor was younger some of his friends learnt the skill of internal chronometry.

Faction Paradox Edit

  • The Cold is the Time Lord warship's computer system. By releasing it, it detonates the ship (which is a planet-sized bomb) and therefore destroys the Earth.
