Cover blurb:
Forty years the Yeti had been quiet. A collector's item in a museum. Then without warning it awoke — and savagely murdered.

At about the same time patches of mist began to appear in Central London. People who lingered anytime in the mist were found dead, their faces smothered in cobwebs. The cobweb seeped down, penetrating the Underground System. Slowly it spread...

Then the Yeti reappeared, roaming the misty streets and cobwebbed tunnels, killing everyone in their path. Central London was gripped tight in a Web of Fear...

Cover blurb:
'It's like a nightmare. An enemy we can't see or touch, who knows our every move.'

For forty years the Yeti has been quiet, a simple museum exhibit. Then without warning it wakes, and savagely murders. Meanwhile, patches of mist began to appear in central London. People who linger in the mist are found dead, their faces smothered in cobwebs. The cobwebs seep down, penetrating the Underground System, expanding... Then the Yeti reappear, not just one but hordes, roaming the misty streets and cobwebbed tunnels, killing everyone in their path. The Doctor, Jamie and Victoria must unite with the young Colonel Lethbridge-Stewart to stop the deadly menace.

This is the first story to feature Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart.
