For many thousands of years, the Suthekh had waited... trapped in the heart of an Egyptian pyramid. Now at last the time had come - the moment of release, when all the force of his pent-up evil and malice would be unleashed upon the world. The TARDIS lands in the year 1911, and the Doctor and Sarah emerge to fight a terrifying and deadly battle...against Egyptian mummies, half possessed humans - and the overwhelming evil power of Sutekh!

If you could sum up Doctor Who and the Pyramids of Mars in three words, what would they be?

I remember the show and Tom's narration brought it all back.

What did you like best about this story?

It was Tom Baker's narration made it really work for me.

Which scene was your favorite?

Sorry, no specific sean. The description regarding how they escaped the force field was interesting. The book did better than what I would remember from the original shows.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Doctor "Sara, your keep forgetting, I'm not human"

Any additional comments?

It was fun and unlike what I typically purchase. My son will enjoy this when he finally slows down enough to listen.
