    I still haven’t received issues 50 & 51 yet. I’m a subscriber and I’m wondering if they will be dispatched soon? Or have they missed me out!

      Luckily it arrived today. Pleased to have ‘The Trial of a Time Lord’ book, as it’s not only one of my all time favourite stories, (certainly my favourite of the Colin Baker era), but also it’s troubled background should make for fascinating reading.

      Enjoyed this book, one of my favourites of the ‘Complete History’ collection so far. I’ve always considered Mel to be a paradox from an alternate aborted future timeline. A timeline in which the Doctor wasn’t taken out of time and put on Trial. Hence, when the Sixth Doctor selects the Vervoid segment for his defence, he is looking through a future that would have happened had he not been taken out of time. The 7th Doctor in ‘Dragonfire’ comments before she departs with Glitz that he hasn’t even met her yet!

    This is my favourite story of all time, the special effects are amazing, especially the space station sequence which is as good as if not better than today’s cgi effects. Great monster designs, and Colin Baker just shines.

      Colin Baker is superb throughout ‘Trial of a Time Lord’. A worthy epic finale to the Sixth Doctor’s era.

    ‘The Trial of a Time Lord’ is great. Very underrated. ‘Mindwarp’ is my favourite segment.

      I know! I love trial of a timelord – all parts but especially Vervoids – the whole arc of the season is wonderful – and when the Valeyard is unveiled as you-know-who. Shivers….
