This is the first (continuity-wise, anyway) in a series of fan fiction novelizations published by the New Zealand Doctor Who Fan Club, which plug the gaps in the classic stories that weren't novelized by Target Books. The Pirate Planet was Douglas Adams's first Doctor Who script back in the 1970s; this is a decent stab at a novelization. Perhaps too decent, since you expect that Terrance Dicks could have turned in something just as good with about half the effort. And I don't even like Terrance Dicks.
