Publisher's Summary

A group of palaeontologists have been savagely attacked while carrying out a study of fossilised dinosaur remains in an underground cave system on twenty-fifth century Earth. A party of troopers and Professor Kyle, the only survivor of the attack, are investigating the deaths of her colleagues when they discover the Doctor and his companions at the site of the massacre. The time-travellers are immediately suspected. In trying to establish their innocence and find out who - or what - was responsible for the killings, the Doctor is confronted by an old enemy. The Fifth Doctor himself, Peter Davison, reads Ian Marter's complete and unabridged novelisation, first published by Target Books in 1983, whilst Nicholas Briggs provides the authentic voice of the Cybermen.

My Doctor and one of his very best stories

Would you listen to Doctor Who: Earthshock again? Why?

Most definitely! Peter Davison was always my favourite doctor and this story with the cyber men was one of his best.

Which character – as performed by Peter Davison – was your favourite?

The doctor of course! Although I think even if Peter Davison hadn't been the doctor I would still have enjoyed his telling of the story.

Any additional comments?

Earth shock was always one of the best stories, even with the dodgy special effects of the old doctor who tv series. Listening to Peter Davison telling the story is fantastic. Of course the audio story also gives that much more depth and I was surprised how much more I picked up listening to the story.
