Dan Starkey reads the brand new novelisation of a lost Doctor Who adventure by Douglas Adams
The Doctor promised Romana the end of the universe, so she’s less than impressed when what she gets is a cricket match. Even worse, the award ceremony is interrupted by eleven figures in white uniforms and peaked skull helmets, wielding bat-shaped weapons that fire lethal bolts of light into the screaming crowd. The Krikkitmen are back.
Millions of years ago, the people of Krikkit learned they were not alone in the universe, and promptly launched a crusade to wipe out all other life-forms. After a long and bloody conflict, the Time Lords imprisoned Krikkit within an envelope of Slow Time, a prison that could only be opened with the Wicket Gate key, a device that resembles — to human eyes, at least — an oversized set of cricket stumps...
The Doctor and Romana are now tugged into a pan-galactic conga with fate as they rush to stop the Krikkitmen gaining all five pieces of the key. If they fail, the entire cosmos faces a fiery retribution that will leave nothing but ashes...
A complete and unabridged reading by Dan Starkey of the novelisation by James Goss, based on recently discovered material from the Douglas Adams archive. CD 1 also includes PDF Introduction and Appendices from the print/ebook version of the novel.
