2nd Doctor
Victoria, The Brigadier, & Sarah
  • Like the New Adventure Shakedown published the previous month, this is the novelization of a spin-off direct-to-video production. Downtime was scripted by Platt and directed by Christopher Barry (director of many classic episodes of Doctor Who), and was originally released in September 1995 by Reeltime Pictures.
  • The novel features only a very brief cameo appearance of the 2nd Doctor in a flashback (a scene added for this novel). Otherwise, it only features various companions.
  • The center of the book features 8 glossy pages reprinting photos from the video production.
