Tom Baker’s legendary Doctor Who adventure is a spine-chilling thriller forty years in the making
The Doctor, Harry and Sarah Jane Smith arrive in a quiet Scottish village, but their holiday is cut short by the appearance of strange creatures — living scarecrows who terrify the local population.
The scarecrows are the work of the sinister Scratchman, a cosmic force that enslaves planets and turns them into nightmare worlds — and he has set a series of traps for the Doctor, to get inside the Time Lord’s head.
What is the Doctor most afraid of? If Scratchman can learn that, then no force in creation can stop him. The fate of the universe hangs in the balance. And the Doctor’s worst nightmares are coming out to play...
A complete and unabridged reading by the author Tom Baker, who was the Fourth Doctor in the BBC TV series from 1974 to 1981. Additional voices are supplied by Nicholas Briggs.
