With the Doctor wanting to repair the TARDIS in peace and uiet Barbara Ian and Susan decide to get some experience of living in the nearby village of Salem But the Doctor knows about the horrors destined to engulf the village and deter. I’ve always considered the Doctor Who novels to be a weaker offshoot of the main television series Bound by continuity unable to make major alterations to the development of characters or stories I had an image of them as being superficial adventures – as entertaining as these can be I was given The Witch Hunters by Steve Lyons about 5 or 6 years ago as a birthday present and decided to read it now It was published in 1998 – during what fans consider the ‘wilderness years’ of the show after it had been cancelled in 1989 and before its return in 2005 Set in Massachusetts 1692 the story focuses around the tragic events of the Salem Witch Trials It features the First Doctor Susan Ian and Barbara and fits between “The Reign of Terror” and “Planet of the Giants” around 1964 The historical setting is the most striking aspect of the novel Doctor Who up until 1966 or so featured freuent ‘historicals’ in which the travelers would land in a period of Earth’s history and be the only alien influence seen during the story I rather miss that format – it would be nice now to see the Doctor travel back in time and not have aliens cause Mt Vesuvius to erupt for Shakespeare not to be influenced by witches etc But I digress There was a point half way into the novel where I feared the antagonist would be revealed as supernatural witches but it soon became clear this uncertainty was Lyons’ intention to make the mass hysteria appear all the powerful This tactic most definitely worked I also enjoy the TARDIS landing on what seems like Earth but the travelers having no idea where they are I wish that too would happen freuently in the new series but then nowadays there isn’t time for explorationMass hysteria is a concept I in my snug stable society have always struggled to understand but Lyons’ approach to the subject is both tactful and enlightening Even before the Doctor explains it the tight knit claustrophobic community crippled by mourning and paranoia is developed through virtually every page and the reader believes that such hysteria could occur in this village Actually these conditions finally provide a decent excuse for Othello I’m still not entirely convinced by the explanation for the children’s well timed fits during the courts but a combination of the puritanical society denying them an outlet for energy the regular abuse they face living on the edge of the Known World with all the trauma that entails and the fundamental religious belief all comes together to create a psychological state I could scarcely imagine It is obvious Lyons has done his research My main criticism is that the religious aspect sometimes felt a little shoehorned – Ian coming from the 1960s UK really wouldn’t say something like ‘your Bible’ Even if he himself is not religious – possible after all of his experences – he’ll certainly have friends or family at home who are I get that the intention is to further portray this village as alien to the travelers but on this occasion it’s a bit forcedThis is why I love historicals; through a glance into different cultures different beliefs and different events they shine varying lights into human nature Humans become the enemy with all the ambigueties this entails The Witch Hunters is no different in portraying the dark side of humanity than we saw with the Aztecs and French Revolution on TV but what does make it different is the increased amount of cruelty we see This must have been when the novels entered their ‘adult phase’ – both Ian and Susan experience forms of torture during the story and the entire plot is mired with death This is much darker than anything which would have been allowed on TV and I love it Also historicals really do provide different perspectives of the world No better is this seen than in Samuel Parris’ ironic desire to “go down in history for all the right reasons” by ridding Salem of witches – an action which of course has instead made him infamous and a figure of hatred It also allows for time jumps described well by beginning each section with a date; one page we’re in 1692 and the next it’s the 1950s So much fun Besides er the witch executionsThe laws of time are given an interesting role here too It’s a concept which has been explored numerous times in Doctor Who often in direct contradiction with what has previously been established Rather than messing with the modern idea of ‘fixed points in time’ Lyons builds on the ideas first developed in “The Aztecs” that history cannot be changed This is proved wrong when the characters make minor alterations and so I am left to assume that this is an artificial rule imposed upon the Doctor Is he so scared of changing time because to do so might catch the attention of the Time Lords he’s currently on the run from It’s never said for sure but the novel does hint that’s the caseI was also highly impressed with the way Lyons wrote the characters As I already mentiond he is restrained with what he can do although he skillfully takes as much from the characters as he can He managed to tie the novel in to the vague developments shown in the TV series contributing to Susan’s growth to independence and the Doctor’s lonely nature as well as creating an insight into the Doctor’s strained relationship with Ian and Barbara which will actually help me to understand their interactions better whenever I next watch an old episode That’s powerful writing to do that Ian and Barbara’s dialogue could effortlessly have come from William Russell and Jacueline Hill while the Doctor’s mannerisms were usually believable Susan was the weakest written character I found The Susan of this story was written convincingly enough but it didn’t uite fit in with the Susan from TV While I enjoyed her almost childlike hope that Ian and Barbara would continue travelling forever she was at times written to be too young I think Susan’s age is supposed to be around 15 or 16 but she’s written to be like a 12 year old This was a flaw of the TV series too but it’s particularly prevalent here Considering the adventures she ought to have had at this point on Skaro with cavemen Revolutionary France the Aztecs the Sense Sphere etc – she really ought not be this naive The Doctor on the other hand was developed well beyond the writing for TV We see his inner turmoils as he is forbidden from altering time the discrepencies between what he says and what he thinks which can only be hinted at from television performances When he takes future victim Rebecca Nurse forward in time to see a production of The Crucible then shows her Salem in the modern day it’s such a beautiful reflection of the character which I’m accustomed to seeing only in the new series Yet Lyons has fit these attributes to the personality of the first Doctor – a successful blend of new and old That bit where he manages to convince the prison guards to let Ian free is so Hartnell yet also has the depth which only developed laterIn conclusion Doctor Who The Witch Hunters is a surprisingly entertaining and thought provoking book It’s expanded my knowledge of the Salem Witch Trials appearing to be exceedingly accurate from my own limited research – and has expanded the already established characters It’s encouraged me to seek out Doctor Who books in the future–Final rating 910 The Gadfly of Salem But the Doctor knows about the horrors destined to engulf the village and deter.
