Cover blurb:
DOCTOR WHO is strangely concerned about Professor Horner's plan to cut open an ancient barrow near the peaceful English village of Devil's End; equally worried is Miss Hawthorne, the local white witch, who foretells a terrible disaster if he goes ahead; determined that the Professor should is Mr. Magister, the new vicar (in truth the MASTER) whose secret ceremonies are designed to conjure up from out of the barrow a horribly powerful being from a far-off planet... The Brigadier and Jo Grant assist DOCTOR WHO in this exciting confrontation with the forces of black magic!

Cover blurb:
DOCTOR WHO maakt zich ernstig bezorgd over het plan van professor Horner om een oude grafheuvel in de buurt van het vredige Devil's End open te leggen; juffrouw Hawthorne is al even bezorgd, zij is de plaatselijke witte heks, die een grote ramp voorspelt, als hij zijn plan ten uitvoer brengt. Mr. Magister, de nieuwe dominee (maar in feite de MASTER) is era lles aan gelegen dat professor Horner doorzet.

Zijn geheime bijeenkomsten hebben tot doel uit de grafheuvel een afschrikwekkend, machtig wezen op te roepen dat afkomstig is van een verre planeet... De generaal en Jo Grant helpen de Doctor bij zijn lugubere confontatie met de machten van de zwarte magie!

Cover blurb:
'Hearken to my voice, oh Dark One; ancient and awful; supreme in artifice; bearer of power; I conjure thee!'

Working with UNIT on Earth, the Doctor is strangely concerned about Professor Horner's plans to cut open an ancient barrow near the peacful village of Devil's End. Equally worried is Miss Hawthorne, the local white witch, who foretells a terrible disaster if he goes ahead. The only person who wants Horner to open the barrow is the new vicar — in truth the Master — whose secret ceremonies are designed to conjure from the barrow a horribly powerful being.

The author, Barry Letts, has been associated with Doctor Who in several capacities, mainly as a director and producer during the Pertwee years.
