Note:It was also planned to release this novel as an audio CD reading in late 2009 — however the release was postponed several times and ultimately cancelled as the BBC decided to switch to novel readings being released via download only. A limited physical release eventually happened in early 2011 as a library-edition CD box set with fellow 10th Doctor novel Judgement of the Judoon.

Cover blurb:
1500BC — King Actaeus and his subjects live in mortal fear of the awesome gods who have come to visit their kingdom in ancient Greece. Except the Doctor, visiting with university student June, knows they're not gods at all. They're aliens.

For the aliens, it's the perfect holiday — they get to tour the sights of a primitive planet and even take part in local customs. Like gladiatorial games, or hunting down and killing humans who won't be missed.

With June's enthusiastic help, the Doctor soon meets the travel agents behind this deadly package holiday company — his old enemies the Slitheen. But can he bring the Slitheen excursion to an end without endangering more lives? And how are events in ancient Greece linked to a modern-day alien plot to destroy what's left of the Parthenon?

Featuring the Doctor as played by David Tennant in the hit series from BBC Television.
