The Scales of Injustice is a Virgin Missing Adventures original novel written by Gary Russell based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. It features the Third Doctor, Liz Shaw and UNIT.


Whilst the Third Doctor and Liz Shaw investigate another incursion of Silurians, the Brigadier must discover what the secret Governmental organisation C-19 has in store for UNIT.


  • This novel begins a trilogy concerning the Pale Man and the Irish Twins which continues in Russell's two Past Doctor Adventures Business Unusual and Instruments of Darkness.
  • This novel provides the departure scene for the companion Liz Shaw. In the television series her final appearance was in the last episode of Inferno, but she is not seen to leave the Doctor. In the Terror of the Autons her departure was announced by the Brigadier.
  • The novel is also designed as a prequel to the events of the television serial Warriors of the Deep. Specifically, this story explains how the Doctor knows Icthar and how he knows of the Triad and the Myrka.
