Doctor Who: Nightshade

This Doctor Who novel, written by Mark Gatiss, was published by Virgin in August 1992.

I HAVE DONE ENOUGH!

Ace has never known the Doctor so withdrawn and melancholic. He is avoiding her company, seeking solace in the forgotten rooms and labyrinthine passages of his ancient time machine.

Perhaps he will find the peace he yearns for on his favourite planet, Earth, in the second half of the twentieth century – in the isolated village of Crook Marsham, to be precise, in 1968, the year of peace, love and understanding.

But one by one the villagers are being killed. The Doctor has to act, but for once he seems helpless, indecisive, powerless.

What are the signals from space that are bombarding the radio telescope on the moon? What is the significance of the local legends from the Civil War? And what is the aeons-old power that the Doctor is unable to resist?
