Note: Novelisation of the 1978 Doctor Who TV story of the same name — note that this is a completely different book than the 1980 novelisation written by Terrance Dicks. Instead this is a brand new adaptation by the original TV author David Fisher, originally released as an audiobook exclusive in 2011 and finally making its first appearance in print.
“We won’t find Dracula hanging around the Manor. But we may find something equally disturbing..."
The Doctor is delighted when his quest for the Key to Time leads him to his favourite planet, Earth. But his friends are less enchanted: Romana is nearly lured to her death by a sinister apparition, and K9 is all but destroyed by a belligerent boulder with the power to move - and a thirst for blood.
An ancient stone circle becomes a battleground as the Doctor must outwit the deadliest alien criminal this side of hyperspace - and her bloodthirsty silicon servants...
