Publisher's Summary

Geoffrey Beevers reads this exciting novelisation of a 1980 TV adventure featuring the Fourth Doctor, as played by Tom Baker.

The Doctor, Romana and K9 - and a young stowaway called Adric - are trapped in the alternative universe of E-Space. Seeking help, they land on an unknown planet. There they find a nightmare world where oppressed peasants toil for the Lords who live in the Tower and where all learning is forbidden: a society in a state of decay.

What is the terrifying secret of the Three Who Rule? What monstrous creature stirs beneath the Tower, waking from its thousand-year sleep? The Doctor discovers that the oldest and deadliest enemy of the Time Lords is about to spring into horrifying action.

John Leeson provides the Voice of K9.

Spooky tale, well told

Any additional comments?

Old vampire tale set in the Doctor Who universe. Evocative, charming, enjoyable.
