5. UNIT - Encounters
"It’s wonderful to have the whole UNIT team, save Sam Bishop who is off on another James Bond mission, working together. Fitton’s script balances the screen time and gives every team member enough to do to warrant their inclusion. Oh and did I mention the banter? Yes, we have some good banter here folks. The chemistry in this team is strong." Doctor Who TV
"An Experimental collection of adventures exploring the UNIT family further including a fascist alternative reality of corruption within UNIT itself which is quite unsettling" The Host Productions
Protecting the Earth is a full-time job, but Kate Stewart and her team are always prepared. Join UNIT as they deal with threats from other worlds, and some from closer to home...
The Dalek Transaction by Matt Fitton
When a rogue guerrilla faction offer an alien artefact for auction, Kate Stewart and her team go undercover to the jungles of Central America. But they find that the prize on offer is far deadlier than its owners realise. Captive, desperate and alone. That’s when a Dalek is at its most dangerous.
Invocation by Roy Gill
It’s Hallowe’en, and Josh finds himself at a party where phantoms are becoming all too real. Osgood is working late and hears a voice from the skies making strange incantations. The next day, Kate has gone missing in the Scottish Borders, and the team head north to investigate. Ghosts from the past are haunting UNIT, and now they threaten the whole world…
The Sontaran Project by Andrew Smith
