Cover blurb:
‘Your evil is my good. I am Sutekh the Destroyer.’

Pyramids of Mars (1975) inherits not only the mythology of Ancient Egypt, but a long tradition of Gothic fiction, Late-Victorian imperial guilt, and a fascination with mummification and the afterlife, led to stories of reverse colonisation, later reincarnated as 20th-century horror movies. These in turn inspired the alien gods and robot mummies of Pyramids of Mars, including one of the Doctor’s most frightening adversaries: Sutekh, the enemy of all life.

Kate Orman has written or co-written 13 Doctor Who novels, and a chapter in Doctor Who and Race.

Book-length looks at single Doctor Who stories from 1963 to the present day

“A grandly ambitious thing to attempt with something as exhaustively detailed as (Who). But they actually manage it. Treat your bookshelf."
—Doctor Who Magazine
