Cover blurb:
The extraterrestrial pointed his oddly-shaped weapon at the Dr. "This is the end." He said. "This is goodbye forever, Dr! No longer shall your kind oppress the Galaxy with your terrible grammatical correctitude-"

"-ness," corrected the Dr. in a small voice. Even though he had his arms up, and a gun stuck into his chest, he couldn't help it.

"You die now!" screeched the infuriated ET.

Inner cover flaps read as follows:

Join Dr Whom, his reliably pedantic assistant Linnaeus Trout ... and Prose Tailor. Don't worry, not even he knows why he's (possessive apostrophe or the other sort? Uhhh) in the story. Oh (should there be a comma there do you think? Or perhaps an exclamation mark) that's right he's the narrator.

Still there should be plenty of room for all three of them on the adventure what with the TARDY being bigger on the inside than the out. Mind you, have you ever wondered (you haven't have you?) what that would mean for the smallest room on the TARDY? Yes that's right, the toilet is the size of an aircraft hangar. Where was I?

Oh yes. Join the Dr., (full stop then a comma - that can't be right - look there's a little squiggly green line under it) Linn and Prose as they fight to protect the galaxy from the perils of bad grammar, sloppy punctuation and careless sentence construction. Not to mention, the Cydermen, the remorseless android Garleks and the Celebrity Chefs du Monde.

A.R.R.R. Robert's actually used to be a Doctor you know. But now he's gone all hoity-toity and become a Professor. That's right, being a Doctor wasn't good enough for old A.R.R.R. 250,000 million pounds a year and all the elastic support bandages you can use and Doctor Robert's wanted more. It makes me sick. The National Health Ser ... Doctor of the Arts you say? Ah. I'll shut up.

And I bet he's got those bloody awful leather patches on the elbows of his cord jacket. Or is that just geography teachers? Look it's not easy writing cover copy you know.
