Cleaning up and The Shadow in the Glass's "About the Authors" section gave a little chuckle:
JUSTIN RICHARDS is a writer and editor. Amongst other misdemeanours, he acts as Doctor Who Range Consultant to BBC Worldwide, which means that if you don't like the books, basically all his fault. That's doubly true for this one. One of Justin's goals was to avoid having to write a Doctor Who novel. So here it is.
STEPHEN COLE is a writer and editor. Amongst other misdemeanours, he acted as Doctor Who Range Consultant to BBC Worldwide, which means that if you used to dislike the books, basically it was all his fault. That's doubly true for this one. One of Stephen's goals was to write a Doctor Who novel -- so here's his second in a month.
"Courage isn't a matter of not being frightened you know; It's being afraid and doing what you have to do anyway."
Randomly came across this looking at new Doctor Who posts on Twitter! What kind of Tom Baker weirdness is this?!🤣
From his outfit and the set, I think that's Tom having a bit of fun while recording 'Late Night Story', a series of VERY macabre story readings broadcast (late at night, obviously) on the BBC in the late (night) Seventies.
They're included on 'The Armageddon Factor' DVDs in the 'Key to Time' box set and must be one of the best non-Who-related 'extras' in the whole range. For fans of Tom and very creepy stories, of course.
