The Doctor is feeling confident: this time the TARDIS has landed on Earth; in England; in 1963. But when he and his companions venture outside, they are soon lost in a maze of ravines and menaced by gigantic insects. However, the insects are dying — every living thing is dying...
Meanwhile, in a cottage garden on a perfect summer's day, the man from the Ministry arrives to put a stop to the production of DN6, a pesticide with the power to destroy all life-forms. But the men who invented DN6 will stop at nothing — not even murder — in their desire to see DN6 succeed.
Can the one-inch-tall Doctor, along with granddaughter Susan and schoolteachers Ian and Barbara, foil their plans?
Carole Ann Ford, who played Susan in the original BBC TV series, reads Terrance Dicks's complete and unabridged novelisation of a 1964 serial by Louis Marks, first published by Target Books in 1990.
