NICHOLAS BRIGGS READS THIS UNABRIDGED NOVEL BY GEORGE MANN, FEATURING THE WAR DOCTOR AS PLAYED BY JOHN HURT
The Great Time War has raged for centuries, ravaging the universe. Scores of human colony planets are now overrun by Dalek occupation forces. A weary, angry Doctor leads a flotilla of Battle TARDISes against the Dalek stronghold but in the midst of the carnage, the Doctor’s TARDIS crashes to a planet below: Moldox.
As the Doctor is trapped in an apocalyptic landscape, Dalek patrols roam amongst the wreckage, rounding up the remaining civilians. But why haven’t the Daleks simply killed the humans?
Searching for answers, the Doctor meets ‘Cinder’, a young Dalek hunter. Their struggles to discover the Dalek plan take them from the ruins of Moldox to the halls of Gallifrey, and set in motion a chain of events that will change everything. And everyone.
Nicholas Briggs has provided the voice of the Daleks, Cybermen and other characters in the BBC TV series Doctor Who since 2005, as well as taking roles in Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures.
