Psi-ence Fiction was the forty-sixth novel in the BBC Past Doctor Adventures series. It was written by Chris Boucher, released 3 September 2001 and featured the Fourth Doctor and Leela.

Publisher's summary Edit

It's Reading Week at the University of East Wessex, but not everything comes to a stop.

The wood is still haunted. Experiments in telepathy, remote viewing, precognition and other paranormal phenomena continue in the Parapsychology Department. The department heads still think the Kellerfield Research Fellow is out for publicity rather than psychic results. A grisly murder remains unsolved by local police. The students are still holding seances in the graveyard.

When the TARDIS arrives in Norswood, the Doctor and Leela are caught up in events that are spiralling out of control. Leela is chased by a phantom, and the Doctor takes the waters. But soon it isn't just the Parapsychology Department's funding that's in question — it's the whole of existence.

Culture Edit

  • The Doctor tells Leela for the first time that the Tesh and the Sevateem are probably descended from the people of Earth.

Notes Edit

  • Despite the publisher's summary, the fictional University of East Wessex doesn't give Hitchins his own Department, much less full professorship. It is his Fellowship that supports him.
