Publisher's Summary

Maureen O'Brien reads this thrilling novelisation of a classic Doctor Who adventure. From his one previous visit the Doctor remembers the inhabitants of the planet Dido as a gentle, peace-loving people. But when he returns, things have changed dramatically. It seems that the Didoi have brutally massacred the crew of the crashed spaceliner Astra. Even now they are threatening the lives of the sole survivors, Bennett and the orphan girl Vicki.

Why have the Didoi apparently turned against their peaceful natures? Can Bennett and Vicki survive until the rescue ship from Earth arrives? And who is the mysterious Koquillion? Maureen O'Brien, who played Vicki in the original Doctor Who TV serial, reads Ian Marter's complete and unabridged novelisation, first published by Target Books in 1987.

    "Classic Doctor Who."

    A great novelization by Ian Marter. He was a unson hero of Doctor Who. He not only wrote several novelizations of the series episodes, he also played Harry Sullivan, the fourth Doctors first companion. His books made people want to watch Doctor Who. He's one of many reasons Doctor Who celebrated its 50 year. This book must of been a challenge to write. The story that was televised was only two episodes long, barely an hour long. To make the story into a book he added more scenes and more character depth to make a book length work, he did a great job. To bad it was his last book. Maureen O'brien did an ok job narrating.
