Note:Also available as an audio reading. Novelisation of the classic 1979 Tom Baker TV story. Had been previously published as an "unofficial novelisation" by the New Zealand Fan Club, but never had a BBC-licenced adaptation for many years, due to Douglas Adams being unable to agree terms with publishers to write the novelisation (or allow another author to do so) before his untimely death in 2001. Was originally announced for publication in 2014 with Gareth Roberts as the author, but when Roberts found himself unable to make progress on the project, it was pushed back to 2015 with James Goss as the author instead.

Cover blurb:
'You're tinkering with time. That's always a bad idea unless you know what you're doing.'

The Doctor takes Romana for a holiday in Paris — a city which, like a fine wine, has a bouquet all its own. But the TARDIS takes them to 1979, a year whose vintage is soured by cracks in the very fabric of time itself.

Soon the Time Lords are embroiled in an audacious alien scheme involving home-made time machines, the Mona Lisa, the resurrection of the much-feared Jagaroth race, and the beginning (and quite possibly the end) of all life on Earth.

But then, the Doctor's holidays tend to turn out a bit like this.

'An elegant classy novel' Doctor Who Magazine

'It's a beautiful collaboration, a work of love, and a celebration of the very best of Doctor Who that's luminous with joy' CultBox
