Just War (Doctor Who)
Virgin New Adventures
Seventh DoctorBenny, Chris, Roz
"Just War" is a novel by
Lance Parkinfrom the Virgin New Adventures. The New Adventures were based on the long-running British science fiction television series " Doctor Who". The novel featured the characters of the Seventh Doctor, Bernice Summerfield(known as Benny), Chris Cwejand Roz Forrester.
Virgin Bookshad a policy of accepting submissions from newcomers and this was author Lance Parkin's first professional writing following earlier "Doctor Who" fan fiction. He went on to write numerous further "Doctor Who" and other books.
Parkin had recently completed an MA and his dissertation thesis was on
postcolonial literature. The novel echoes that by showing reversals of familiar colonial perspectives. The story is set in Nazi Germany-occupied Guernsey, a rare example of part of the British Isles being 'colonised' by another power. The novel also depicts Roz's experiences of discrimination as a black woman of African heritage in wartime England. This contrasts with Roz's background as she comes from a gender-equal far future where African nations dominate and is racist in her attitudes to white EuropeansFact|date=September 2007.
The Doctor and his companions land in German-occupied Guernsey in 1941 where the Nazis are pursuing a top-secret weapon which could change the course of the war.
*The novel features a predecessor to UNIT called "LONGBOW". In a thread on the
Usenetgroup rec.arts.drwho as to what this stood for, Parkin admitted he had only got as far as "League Of Nations Global..." He accepted Chris Schumacher's suggestion of "League Of Nations Global Bizarre Occurences Watch".

date=August 1999|In 1999, "Just War" was adapted by
Big Finish Productionsinto an audio drama starring Lisa Bowermanas Bernice. The plot was changed to fit in with the run of Bernice audio dramas. Big Finish had begun by adapting New Adventure novels from after when Virgin had lost their licence to do "Doctor Who" stories and the series had focused on Benny. Big Finish also had no "Doctor Who" licence at the time, but they decided to dramatise two "Doctor Who" New Adventures, adapting them to remove the "Doctor Who" references. Thus, the audio adaptation achieves time travelthrough the use of Benny's Time Rings. The Doctor, Chris and Roz are removed from the narrative, with Jason Kane's role replacing some elements of the parts played by the Doctor and Chris from the novel.
The adaptation was done by
Jacqueline Rayner, who adapted most of this first series of Benny audios.
