What was it about and how was it? When the Fourth Doctor takes Leela to visit an immense tree space station known as the Heligan Structure, little do they know that the tree has been asleep for centuries, dreaming of vengeance against a man in a blue box … As the tree awakes, the Time Lord and his companion soon discover why they are such unwelcome guests. The Doctor takes Leela back to a tree city to balance out the number of cities and space stations she has endured since leaving the forests where they met.

On Heligan they are captured and the Doctor identified as cause of the colony drifting in orbit around a planet in need of terraforming. Sentenced to execution the Doctor escapes as the tree itself sends spore creatures to kill him. Needless to say all ends for the best! The idea of the tree in space is sound and the name conjures up the Lost Gardens of the same name. Imagine that! The story is overall well paced, sets up the situation and gets to a plausible resolution — no real complaints!
A lack of steampunk aside I enjoyed this and would be happy for Philip Reeve to write some more Doctor Who. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account. You are commenting using your Twitter account.
