The Indestructible Man was the sixty-ninth BBC Past Doctor Adventures novel. It featured the Second Doctor, Jamie McCrimmon and Zoe Heriot. This was author Simon Messingham's second and final contribution to the Past Doctor Adventures range.

Publisher's summary

The Myloki. Mysterious aliens from beyond Space and Time.

Their target: EARTH.

The human defenders of PRISM are enmeshed in a doomed interstellar war against an unknowable invader armed with the power to possess, duplicate and destroy from within.

Only one man stands in their way. A man destiny has made indestructible.

Against all the odds the legendary Indestructible Man saves the Earth but victory comes at the highest price. The world economy collapses, governments crumble and PRISM itself is torn apart by a best-selling exposé.

AD 2096: PRISM has gone underground, becoming the clandestine SILOET headed by new commander Hal Bishop.

Bishop receives an urgent summons to his headquarters. An infiltrator has been unmasked and captured in the heart of SILOET itself. Fatally wounded, the infiltrator makes a miraculous recovery. It appears he is indestructible.

The implications are terrifying.

The Myloki may just have returned. And who is left to stop them now?

Characters

References

The Doctor

  • The Doctor is shot through the head and begins to regenerate. The regeneration is halted when Myloki "matter" is injected into his body.

Individuals

  • Jamie believes the Doctor is actually a robot duplicate until Captain Black attacks the Doctor.
  • Mrs Craig calls the Doctor "Doctor Rip Van Winkle".

Notes

  • The novel pays homage to the works of Gerry Anderson. The primary basis is Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons: PRISM, the Myloki and the eponymous Indestructible Man are based on SPECTRUM, the Mysterons and Captain Scarlet. SILHOET is a homage to SHADO, the agency from UFO; both SPECTRUM and SHADO were global security agencies handling covert alien incidents, though they were unrelated unlike their homages.
  • This would be the final novel to feature the Second Doctor, Jamie and Zoe until the novel The Wheel of Ice in August 2012.
