Kinda was a novelisation based on the 1982 television serial Kinda.

Publisher's summary Edit

1984 edition Edit

Nothing could disturb the serene peace of the planet Deva-Loka - or could it? An expeditionary force from Earth is dangerously out of control—and it's not only from the peaceful race of the Kinda who are at risk...

A gentle stroll in the lush jungle leads the Doctor and Adric to an unexpected confrontation-and puts them at the mercy of a maniac...

But it is Tegan, lulled to sleep by mysterious wind-chimes, who comes the closest to the real danger that threatens not only her sanity but the existence of the whole planet...

Deviations from televised story Edit

  • The novel identifies Todd as "Doctor Todd".
  • The relationship between Hindle and Sanders is explored in greater detail.
  • The two unnamed members of the expedition who went missing before Roberts are referred to as Stone and Carter.

Writing and publishing notes Edit

  • This was the final novelisation to use a fully photographic cover, and it was the final Target novelisation to feature the Doctor as part of the main art until The Savages was published several years later.
  • Although number #84 in the Doctor Who library, the book was actually the 83rd to be released; this was because it was swapped in the publication order with the novelisation of Snakedance late in the day without the numbers being reassigned.
