Robert Holmes and John Lucarotti, man, what a twisted pairing. What will they come together to create?
The aliens: are they called Wirn, or Wirrn? No, fuck you, they're called Wirrrn. (Thanks Gary Russell.) Yeah, maybe that was originally just a typo on the script that the Target novelisation picked up by accident, but the novel Placebo Effect goes with that typo. An Eighth Doctor Adventures novel that uses companions from the comic books is double plus super canon.
