I came to this just after reading Volume 6 of TARDIS Eruditorum, which has a chapter excoriating this book. It's not as bad as all that. I think Gary Russell is one of the better Who writers currently in action; granted, this book is from 18 years ago, his first for the Past Doctors range, but it shows his potential. I'm also a bit baffled by the criticism that it exists only to be a Sixth Doctor-Brigadier story, and/or a Mel origin story. Granted, I think that The Spectre of Lanyon Moor did the former better, and The Wrong Doctors did the latter better, but Who has an unspoken history of recycling ideas sometimes. I'll concede that Busines Unusual isn't going to be i many people's top ten or top twenty spinoff novels, but I thought it did at least take the Brigadier to some interesting places. (I admit that I can't really say the same for Mel's back-story as told here.) ( )
