Cover blurb:
Jon Culshaw reads the brand new novelisation of a classic Doctor Who adventure by Douglas Adams

The hugely powerful Key to Time has been split into six segments, all of which have been disguised and hidden throughout time and space. Now the even more powerful White Guardian wants the Doctor to find the pieces.

With the first segment successfully retrieved, the Doctor, Romana and K9 trace the second segment of the Key to the planet Calufrax. But when they arrive at exactly the right point in space, they find themselves on exactly the wrong planet — Zanak.

Ruled by the mysterious ‘Captain’, Zanak is a happy and prosperous planet. Mostly. If the mines run out of valuable minerals and gems then the Captain merely announces a New Golden Age and they fill up again. It’s an economic miracle — so obviously something’s very wrong...

A complete and unabridged reading by Jon Culshaw of the novelisation by James Goss, based on Douglas Adams’s original scripts for the 1978 TV adventure.
