Description

From his one previous visit the Doctor remembers the inhabitants of the planet Dido as a gentle, peace-loving people. But when he returns, things have changed dramatically. It seems that the Didoi have brutally massacred the crew of the crashed spaceliner Astra. Even now they are threatening the lives of the sole survivors, Bennett and the orphan girl Vicki. Why have the Didoi apparently turned against their peaceful natures? Can Bennett and Vicki survive until the rescue ship from Earth arrives? And who is the mysterious Koquillion? Maureen O'Brien, who played Vicki in the original Doctor Who TV serial, reads Ian Marter's complete and unabridged novelisation, first published by Target Books in 1987.

Review Text

"The audiobook works well to flesh out the story that introduced the companion Vicki and stays fairly true to the original... Maureen O'Brien, who originally played Vicki, reads the audiobook lending gravitas and a bone-fide quality"

About Ian Marter

Ian Marter is best remembered by Doctor Who fans as the actor who played the Fourth Doctor's companion Harry Sullivan. In fact, his first role in Doctor Who came a couple of years earlier when he played the character of Andrews in 'Carnival of Monsters'. Marter worked with his friend Tom Baker on ideas for a possible Doctor Who film, and together they developed a script. Though the film was never made, Marter continued to write and novelised nine Doctor Who adventures for Target books. Ian Marter died in 1986.
