An unabridged reading of this novelisation of a classic 1965 TV serial featuring the First Doctor, as played on TV by William Hartnell.
The Tardis materialises on what, at first sight, appears to be a dry and lifeless planet serving only as a graveyard for spaceships. The Doctor, Ian, Barbara and Vicki discover a magnificent museum housing relics from every corner of the galaxy. These have been assembled by the Moroks, a race of cruel conquerors who have invaded the planet Xeros and enslaved its inhabitants.
Upon further exploration the Tardis crew seem to stumble upon the impossible: for suddenly, facing them in an exhibit case, they find...themselves!
Duration: 5 hours approx.
Despite the dull title, this story begins with mysteries to be explained, then builds the action to full scale battle.
This book took me back many years watching the first doctor. Loved the original story and totally loved the way it was read. Maureen O'Brien's reading brought the characters to life. Nearly 5 hours of total enjoyment.
