Note:  A later reprint removed the image of Billie Piper from the cover, presumably due to use-of-likeness issues after Piper left the programme (the same happened for several other of the new series novels featuring Rose). View alternate cover

Cover blurb:
In 1920s London the Doctor and Rose find themselves caught up in the hunt for a mysterious murderer. But not everything is what it seems. Secrets lie behind locked doors and inhuman killers roam the streets.

Who is the Painted Lady and why is she so interested in the Doctor? How can a cat return from the dead? Can anyone be trusted to tell — or even to know — the truth?

With the faceless killers closing in, the Doctor and Rose must solve the mystery of the Clockwise Man before London itself is destroyed...

Featuring the Doctor and Rose as played by Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper in the hit series from BBC Television.

Cover blurb:
Tohtori Who ja Rose ilmestyvät aikakoneellaan 1920-luvun Lontooseen. Siellä parivaljakko tutustuu ensi töikseen salaseuraan, jonka jäsenet ovat toinen toistaan merkillisempiä. Onko heistä kukaan sitä mitä esittää?

Eletään brittiläisen imperiumin loistokkaimpia vuosia, mutta sen pääkaupungissa liikkuu tuntematon hyökkääjä, jonka metallinen ote kylvää kauhua kaduilla. Kun tohtori ja Rose pääsevät kurkistamaan salaseuran naamioiden taakse, alkaa näyttää vahvasti siltä, että kaupungissa on muitakin muukalaisia...

Doctor Who — brittiläisen televisiohistorian yksi rakastetuimpia sarjoja — saapui viimein myös Suomeen syksyllä 2006.
Kulttimaineen saaneeseen scifi-sarjaan perustuvat Doctor Who -kirjat ovat itsenäisiä seikkailuja, joita ei nähdä televisiossa.

Wie is de Beschilderde Dame en waroom is ze zo in de Doctor geinteresseerd? Hoe kan een kat uit de dood opstaan? Is er iemand te vertrouwen? Vertelt, of weet zelfs maar iemand de echte waarheid?

Terwijl de gezichtsloze moordenaars steeds dichterbij komen, moeten de Doctor en Rose het mysterie van de metalen moordenaars oplossen voordat Londen zelf wordt vernietigd...
