Doctor Who: Shadow of the Past by Simon Guerrier (Big Finish, 2010) Another clever script by Simon Guerrier, staying faithful to the spirit of early UNIT-era stories. Present-day Liz Shaw (Caroline John) tells of an earlier adventure and then picks up its threads. Unfortunately some ‘big moment’ plot contrivances detract from the emotional resonance.

P.R.O.B.E. – The Zero Imperative
P.R.O.B.E. – The Zero Imperative by Mark Gatiss (BBV, 1994) A creepy Doctor Who spin-off that sees Liz Shaw investigating supernatural deaths at a psychiatric hospital. Liz, however, doesn’t actually feature that much, and it’s a little difficult to reconcile the other Who actors (four ex-Doctors, no less!) with their new roles.
Doctor Who: Heralds of Destruction
Doctor Who: Heralds of Destruction by Paul Cornell; ill. Christopher Jones (Titan Comics, 2017) The character of Jo Grant appears to have morphed with Liz Shaw, but this is the only off-note in an otherwise well-scripted and paced, beautifully drawn, and above all faithful depiction of Doctor Who in the Jon Pertwee dandified exile UNIT days.
