I think I lost it at the point when I realised that the villain's name was Thatcher spelled backwards.
Mind you, it does mean that I remember something about it, which is more than you can say for some of the original novels...
It's a great mash up of Bond (with a dramatic finale on the Eiffel Tower like A View to a Kill*) and Buchan (with a chase sequence over the Firth of Forth bridge - as in The Thirty-Nine Steps). Lots of scottish lochs and secret agents. I was reminded of it when I read Silverfin. But all by Marter writing as Harry - you get a clear sense of Harry's voice (not surprisingly).
I never got around to playing it either - the rules weren't the easiest to follow (heck, that was FASA for you).
Indeed -- I was lucky to drop into the Virgin series when they had the deal to distribute to bookstores in the US, so I picked up most of the series at-price. I shudder when I poke 'round and see how much some copies of, say, Human Nature or Damaged Goods run for, now -- the former, according to Bookfinder, runs from $7 to nearly $40 for a copy!
And I used to play the FASA Doctor Who game -- we had one running on-and-off for about a decade+. In fact, my friends gamed with McCoy once at a con; he just dropped in after his bit and decided to try this weird RPG thing...
You might want to try the Time Lord game -- it was published over a decade ago, but the book itself still seems to be online at the Who-RPG page. I recall it as being a much simpler ruleset, although my then-GM for DW hated it.
