Camille Coduri reads this brand new novelisation of the Tenth Doctor's first adventure
Earth is under attack by power-hungry aliens. This is no time for the Doctor to be out of action.
When a British space probe is intercepted by a sinister alien vessel on the eve of Christmas, it marks the beginning of an audacious invasion of the Earth by the Sycorax — horrifying marauders from beyond the stars. Within hours, a third of humanity stands on the brink of death with not a single shot fired.
Our planet needs a champion — but the Doctor is not fit for service. He's just regenerated, delirious in a new body and a dressing gown. Forced into his battered shoes is his friend, Rose Tyler, a girl from a London council estate. Will she save the world from this nightmare before Christmas — or see it destroyed?
Camille Coduri, who played Jackie in the BBC TV series, reads Jenny T Colgan's complete and unabridged novelisation, based on the original TV script by Russell T Davies.
