Note:  Audio reading of Stephen Wyatt’s 1989 novelisation. The first batch of sleeves suffered a misprint, displaying Lalla Ward’s name on the front as the reader, instead of Sophie Aldred. This was corrected in subsequent pressings.

Cover blurb:
Sophie Aldred reads this exciting novelisation of a classic Doctor Who adventure

CREEPY. That’s what Ace thinks of clowns. But the Doctor insists on entering the talent contest at the Psychic Circus, the self-proclaimed Greatest Show in the Galaxy, on the planet Segonax.

What has reduced Segonax to an arid wasteland? Why have the happy-go-lucky circus folk stayed here so long? And why are they no longer happy? Above all, what is the dreadful truth about the ‘talent contests’ run by the sinister Ringmaster and his robot clowns?

The Doctor and Ace need all their death-defying skills in the big top to uncover a brooding, ancient evil that has broken the spirit of the Circus and demanded the sacrifice of so many lives.

Sophie Aldred, who played Ace in Doctor Who, reads Stephen Wyatt’s complete and unabridged novelisation, first published by Target Books in 1989.
