Despite all the reviews warning me not to, I just read 'Shakedown' on the
basis that I have a particular interest in the Sontaran/Rutan war (if
Rutans attack with electricity, who DO Sontarans wear so much metal
armour? If Rutans can copy any form, isn't a race of clones at a severe
disadvantage against them?)

Look, the storyline (ending excepted) wasn't all that bad at all, but I'd
like to recommend a few commandments for future NA writers:

1. Thou shalt not have characters shout "No!", particularly on what seems
an average of twice per page.
2. Thou shalt reveal information in ways other than dialogue
3. If character A dost not kill character B for a particular reason, then
when character A meets character C, they shall not kill them if the same
reason applies. We don't care if they're a minor or major character.
4. If thou MUST have the villain give a big "I am being triumphant, so I'll
tell you all my plans" speech, thou shalt not draw attention to it by
having said villain say "I am being triumphant, so I'll tell you all my
5. If thou MUST kill off a character and then later tell us they're not
really dead, thou shalt work HARD to justify it and make it plausible
6. If thou art going to give us a surprise, thou shalt not make it
painfully obvious half a book in advance
7. If thou DOST give a surprise that is painfully obvious half a book in
advance, thou shalt not attempt to end a chapter with the shock revelation
of the secret
8. If thou DOST give a surprise that is painfully obvious half a book in
advance, thou shalt not attempt to end TWO chapters with the shock
revelation of the secret
9. If thou DOST give a surprise that is painfully obvious half a book in
advance, and thou ends two chapters with the shock revelation of the
secret, thou shalt not put a further chapter at the end of the book where
the Doctor explains it all one more time "for the dummies"
10. Under absolutely NO circumstances, without exception, may you ever,
ever, EVER have the Doctor diffuse the entire story by "Reversing the
Polarity" of ANYTHING.
11. When the Doctor HAS solved the entire story, but the Sontaran pointing
a gun at him doesn't know, that shalt not have the Doctor tell him. It
isn't a great career move.

To quote "Dilbert", "I admire your ability to get paid for this!"  Can you
imagine what it'd be like if every one of us who spends far too much time
on r.a.dw could get a book like our postings published?  While "Retcon War
of the Daleks" by John Peel and Jon Blum (et al) probably wouldn't be a
big seller, I'd shell out for "QUOTEFILE: The Chris Heer Years", "The Wit? 
And Wisdom? of Robert Smith?", "Mawdryn Undead, Lives Before Hartnell, and
The Five Doctors Paradox", "Banishment of the Daleks", "Mel!  The Inside
Story of the End and Beginning of an Era" (by Bonnie Langford and Alden
Bates), "Paul Cornell Is Gay And You're All Out To Get Me", and maybe even
a book of surrealist poetry by Ralph Silverman and Yaddy... 

So whadaya say, folks -- shall we all turn pro?

MILLER, J., wrote the opinion of the Court:
	The U.S. District Court, Northern District of the Internet,
is rather baffled by the suit seeking judicial notice of the
fact that Hartnell's Doctor was smarter than the subsequent seven.

	Disfavoring this attempt to impose a "hierarchy of brains"
upon the seven coolest science fiction characters of all time,
as well as the Sixth Doctor, we now hold that any such effort
must be proven by clear and convincing evidence.  Such burden
is to be carried by the plaintiff.

	In the case at bar, the plaintiff has offered quotes from
atypical anniversary stories, and refused to broach the subject
of "The Keys of Marinus" and "The Space Museum" and other stories
in which the First Doctor was too moronic to recognize signs
of danger, and blundered straight into awful fates.

	Petition denied.  Costs to plaintiff for wasting our time.

GREEN, J., filed a dissenting opinion:

	Why doesn't my esteemed brethren just shut the hell up?
I'm horrified and sickened by your twisted pathetic effort to
exclude Colin Baker, who's no less than a great actor, from the
list of "cool Doctors".  You obviously have severe emotional
problems, Jason, and I think you should just leave.

The footage really isn't worth it unless you *adore* SN. If anything,
the extended version is *more* confused, and sillier.

[Subject: Re: Rejected Novels]

Here are brief synopses of some of my rejected MAs. After all the effort I
put into them, I thought I might as well post them here. I think they were
rejected because they didn't feature the Doctor very much.

For I am a Jealous Dog

Set between Underworld and Invasion of Time

After watching all twenty-three versions of _Invasion of the Body
Snatchers_ (in 0.045 seconds) K9 is disturbed to discover a large
cardboard box labelled "K9 MK II". Upon investigation he learns that the
box contains an almost complete replica of himself, but with superior
computational ability... and firepower. Noting the Doctor-Master's
increasingly zany behaviour, he soon puts two and two together... and thus
begins a desperate battle for existence - and only one can survive!

The Almostcompanions' Graveyard

Set between bits of Logopolis and other bits of Logopolis

Tegan, wandering lost in the inner TARDIS, finds herself drawn to a vast
chamber full of mouldering human and alien bones. Soon she meets a
community of people who say that, like her, they once wandered into a
mysterious Police Box and became lost - or are descended from people who
did. The community is run by "Bill", a descendant of the community's
founders, Oliver and Mary, geography and home economics teachers at Coal
Hill School, who followed a mysterious pupil home in October 1963, many
hundreds of years ago... After many adventures with her new friends, in
which Tegan battles rival communities of lost souls, as well as various
alien monsters and herds of feral sheep and goats, she decides to embark
on a quest for the mysterious, never-seen "Pilot" of the ship, swearing to
keep the community's existence a secret.

The Castellan, His Savage Girlfriend, Her Lover and Her Dog

Set after The Invasion of Time

On a dull day in the Capitol, Andred, Leela, Rodan and K9 (Mk I) explore
their true feelings about each other. Among other startling revelations,
we discover that K9 only stayed on Gallifrey because Andred promised to
make him a sergeant (he likes the uniform), and Leela reveals that she
really did fancy Andred a bit, and didn't just stay behind for Rodan after
