Note:  At least one printing carries the wrong ISBN: 0-426-20232-5, which actually belongs to Mark of the Rani instead. A sticker was used on the back cover to correct the ISBN there, although the incorrect one remains on the copyright page inside the book.

Cover blurb:
Assailed by violent bolts of multi-coloured energy, the TARDIS is blasted off-course and forced to land on the barren planet of Lakertya. The turbulence brings about the Doctor's sixth regeneration. But that is the least of his worries. He has been hijacked by that ruthless renegade Time Lady, the Rani.

Why has the Rani brought the Doctor to Lakertya?

What are the hideous Tetrap guards?

Who are the eleven geniuses she has imprisoned in her stronghold? What is the vital importance of the asteroid of Strange Matter? And can the Doctor stop the Rani's diabolical scheme before it affects the whole of creation throughout time and space?

Cover blurb:
He glared bleakly at the Rani. 'That asteroid's composed of strange matter! What monstrous experiment are you dabbling in now?'

Assailed by violent bouts of energy, the TARDIS is blasted off course and forced to land on the barren planet of Lakertya, and the violent buffeting triggers the Doctor's sixth regeneration. But that is the least of his worries. He has been hijacked by that ruthless renegade female Time Lord, the Rani.

Why has the Rani brought the Doctor to Lakertya? What are the hideous Tetrap guards? Who are the eleven geniuses she has imprisoned in her stronghold? What is the vital significance of the asteroid of Strange Matter? And can the Doctor stop the Rani's diabolical scheme before it affects the whole of creation throughout time and space?

Doctor Who — Time and the Rani is the first story to feature the seventh Doctor as played by Sylvester McCoy. This novelization is by Pip and Jane Baker, and is adapted from their original script.
