Description: Original Doctor Who novel featuring the Seventh Doctor and Ace. An abridged (Doctor-less) audio adaptation of this novel was released as part of the Bernice Summerfield audio range in 1999.
‘Tomorrow belongs to us, not you. If you were really from the future, Miss Summerfield, you would be a Nazi.’
March 1941: Britain’s darkest hour. The Nazis occupy British soil and British citizens are being deported to European concentration camps. Six thousand people a month are dying in air raids on London. The United States show no sign of entering the war.
According to the Doctor, this isn’t a parallel universe, it isn’t an alternate timeline; and everything is running according to schedule. But now something, somewhere, has gone wrong. The Nazis are building a secret weapon, one that will have a decisive effect on the outcome of the War. Chris thinks it’s a UFO, while Roz believes that the Luftwaffe have developed the largest bomber ever built. Only Benny may have seen the mysterious craft — but she’s disappeared off the face of the Earth.
Lance Parkin wrote this, his first novel, while he was studying for his MA in Post-War English Fiction. He has written for a number of fanzines, notably Matrix, Odyssey, Silver Carrier and In-Vision. He is currently working on a Doctor Who history of the universe for publication in 1996.
