Fourth Doctor Adventures
The Darkness of Glass Death Match

Requiem for the Rocket Men was the third story in the fourth series of Fourth Doctor Adventures. It featured both the Master played by Geoffrey Beevers, who had previously appeared in Fourth Doctor Adventures, and the Rocket Men, in their first appearance outside of the Companion Chronicles.

Publisher's summary Edit

The Asteroid — notorious hideaway of the piratical Rocket Men. Hewn out of rock, surrounded by force-fields and hidden in the depths of the Fairhead Cluster, their base is undetectable, unescapable and impregnable.

In need of allies, the Master has arranged to meet with Shandar, King of the Rocket Men. But the mercenaries have captured themselves a very special prisoner — his oldest enemy, the Doctor.

What cunning scheme is the Doctor planning? How does it connect with Shandar's new robotic pet? And just what has happened to Leela? The Master will have to work the answers out if he wants to leave the asteroid... alive...

  • The Master compares keeping the Doctor imprisoned to taking a Rutan onboard an escape pod.

Notes Edit

  • Leela comments that knowledge is only half the battle. The phrase "knowing is half the battle" was made popular by the American 1980s cartoon G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero.
