Doctor Who and his fellow Time Lords engage in a battle of wits over the Presidency of Gallifrey and control over time itself. ( )
  wealhtheowwylfing | Feb 29, 2016 |
In this Fourth Doctor adventure, the Doctor has been summoned to his home planet of Gallifrey. He has a terrible premonition that the Time Lord President will be assassinated and is horrified when this comes to pass. Even worse, the Doctor himself is arrested for the crime. Can the Doctor solve the mystery and avoid execution (and get away from Gallifrey ASAP)?

This was a very thrilling adventure, with plenty of suspense and some delightfully weird Time Lord technology. The baddie also has a touch of Lord Voldemort about him, which is a bonus for fans of both Harry Potter and Doctor Who. It was a very quick read, too, perfect for an hour or two on a sunny afternoon with a cold drink. ( )

Geoffrey Beevers reads this exciting novelization of a classic TV adventure for the Fourth Doctor. The Doctor is suddenly summoned to Gallifrey, the home of the Time Lords, where his ghastly hallucinations of the President's assassination seem to turn into reality.

But the Master's evil intentions go much further - he has a Doomsday Plan. It is up to the Doctor to prevent him from destroying Gallifrey and taking over the Universe Geoffrey Beevers, who played an incarnation of the Master in the BBC TV series, reads Terrance Dicks's complete and unabridged novelization.… (more)
