Note: Audio reading of Paul Cornell’s 2004 novel.
The novelisation of an an acclaimed animated Doctor Who adventure from 2003, featuring an alternative Ninth incarnation of the Doctor
When the Doctor lands his TARDIS in the Lancashire town of Lannet in the present day, he finds that something is terribly wrong. The people are scared. They don’t like going onto the streets at night; they don’t like too much noise; and they certainly don’t like strangers asking too many questions.
What alien force has invaded the town? Why is it watching barmaid Alison Cheney? And what plans does it have for the future of the planet Earth?
The Doctor is helped (and hindered) by his new military liaison, Major Kennet and his Royal Green Jacket troops — not to mention his old enemy the Master. He also encounters a brand new race of ferocious aliens, in an adventure which takes in the entire world, from New Zealand to India, Siberia to the USA.
David Collings, who appeared in the Doctor Who serials Revenge of the Cybermen and Robots of Death, reads this unique novel by Paul Cornell.
