Long, long ago on the great plains of Asia Minor, two mighty armies faced each other in mortal combat. The armies were the Greeks and the Trojans and the prize they were fighting for was Helen, the most beautiful woman in the world. To the Greeks it seemed the city of Troy was impregnable and only a miracle could bring them success.

A great audiobook. The story is told not by the Doctor or his companions point of view, but by the great poet Homer. Donald Cottons books have always been the most funniest novelizations of Doctor Who stories. To bad he only wrote three of them. I plan to listen to his audiobook version of the Gunfighters soon. I hope they do an audiobook of his version of the Doctor Who story the Romans soon. I always thought that was his best book yet. Great stuff.
"Myth makers is marvellous"
Exciting, scary and inspiring
The doctor, because especially in his first incarnation he was totally unpredicatable. But that is a common theme that runs through all the doctors
Really good. He captured the mood and atmosphere of the story perfectly
Not really. But I liked the use of doctor who colliding with the real historical event
A great story which I would most definently recommend to doctor who fans and people that like history. It will also appeal to youngsters that are studying Ancient Greece at school
