Doctor Who: The Faceless Ones

This Doctor Who story, written by David Ellis and Malcolm Hulke, was first broadcast in six episodes in 1967.

This audio version consists of a digitally remastered soundtrack with linking narration provided by Frazer Hines.

The TARDIS makes a hazardous return to contemporary Earth, materialising at Gatwick Airport in the path of an oncoming aeroplane!

The travellers split up in order to evade airport security, but in doing so they become embroiled in a plot to steal the personalities of young human beings.

The Chameleons: faceless aliens who have lost their very identities following a disaster on their home world. Now they have infiltrated the airport, setting up the bogus Chameleon Tours in order to kidnap passengers and take over their very identities.

As the Doctor and his companions become mixed up in the alien machinations, it soon becomes difficult for them to distinguish friends from enemies.

Doctor Who: Venusian Lullaby

This Doctor Who novel, written by Paul Leonard, was published by Virgin in October 1994.

‘You want me to help you eat your children?’ Ian said.

Jellenhut’s eye-stalks twitched. ‘How else would we remember them?’

Venus is dying. When the Doctor, Barbara and Ian arrive they find an ancient and utterly alien civilisation on the verge of oblivion. War is brewing between those who are determined to accept death, and those desperate for salvation whatever the cost.

Then a spacefaring race arrives, offering to rescue the Venusians by moving them all to Earth – three billion years before mankind is due to evolve. Are the newcomers’ motives as pure as they appear? And will the Doctor allow them to save his oldest friends by sacrificing the future of humanity?

Doctor Who: Evolution

This Doctor Who novel, written by John Peel, was published by Virgin in September 1994.

‘Someone is tampering with the fabric of the human cell,’ the Doctor said darkly, ‘perverting its secrets to his own dark purposes.’

Sarah Jane wants to meet her fellow journalist Rudyard Kipling, and the Doctor sets the co-ordinates for England, Earth, in the Victorian Age. As usual, the TARDIS materializes in not quite the right place, and the time travellers find themselves pursued across Devon moorland by a huge feral hound.

Children have gone missing; at the local boarding school, the young Rudyard Kipling has set up search parties. Lights have been seen beneath the waters of the bay, and fishermen have been pulled from their boats and mutilated. Graves have been robbed of their corpses. Something is going on, and Arthur Conan Doyle, the ship’s doctor from a recently berthed arctic whaler, is determined to investigate.

The Doctor and Doyle join forces to uncover a macabre scheme to interfere with human evolution – and both Sarah Jane and Kipling face a terrifying transmogrification.

Manchester, 1993. The vampires of Great Britain have received a message: the long-awaited arrival of their evil messiah is imminent. It’s time for a recruitment drive.

On holiday in Tasmania with Tegan and the Doctor, Nyssa is attacked by a demonic child. She escapes unharmed – except for two small wounds in her neck.

Why are the descendants of the Great Vampire so desperate to obtain the blood of a Time Lord? And what is their connection to a forbidden ancient Gallifreyan cult?

6 May 1997: The Dying Days of the Twentieth Century

On the Mare Sirenum, British astronauts are walking on the surface of Mars for the first time in over twenty years. The National Space Museum in London is the venue for a spectacular event where the great and the good celebrate a unique British achievement.

In Adisham, Kent, the most dangerous man in Britain has escaped from custody while being transported by helicopter. In Whitehall, the new Home Secretary is convinced that there is a plot brewing to overthrow the government. In west London, MI5 agents shut down a publishing company that got too close to the top secret organisation known as UNIT. And, on a state visit to Washington, the Prime Minister prepares to make a crucial speech, totally unaware that dark forces are working against him.

As the eighth Doctor and Professor Bernice Summerfield discover, all these events are connected. However, soon all will be overshadowed.

This time, the Doctor is already too late.

Doctor Who: Lungbarrow

This Doctor Who novel, written by Mark Platt, was published by Virgin in March 1997.

‘Nonsense, child,’ retorted the Doctor. ‘Grandfather indeed! I’ve never seen you before in my life!’

All is not well on Gallifrey. Chris Cwej is having someone else’s nightmares. Ace is talking to herself. So is K-9. Leela has stumbled on a murderous family conspiracy. And the beleaguered Lord President, Romanadvoratrelundar, foresees one of the most tumultuous events in her planet history.

At the roof of all is an ancient and terrible place, the House of Lungbarrow in the southern mountains of Gallifrey. Something momentous is happening there. But the House has inexplicably gone missing.

673 years ago the Doctor left his family in that forgotten House. Abandoned, disgraced and resentful, they have waited. And now he’s home at last.

In this, the seventh Doctor’s final New Adventure, he faces a threat that could uncover the greatest secret of them all.

Doctor Who: The Room With No Doors

This Doctor Who novel, written by Kate Orman, was published by Virgin in February 1997.

‘Dear Doctor,’ wrote Chris, ‘I give up.’

Swordplay, samurai, demons, magic, aliens, adventure, excitement… Who needs them?

The Doctor and Chris travel to sixteen-century Japan, a country gripped by civil war as feudal lords vie for control. Anything could tip the balance of power. So when a god falls out of the sky, everyone wants it.

As villagers are healed and crops grow far too fast, the Doctor and Chris try to find the secret of the miracles — before the two rival armies can start a war over who owns the god. Chris soon finds himself alone — except for an alien slaver, a time-travelling Victorian inventor, a gang of demons, an old friend with suspicious motives, a village full of innocent bystanders, and several thousand samurai.

Without the Doctor, someone has to take up the challenge of adventure and stop the god from falling into the wrong hands. Someone has to be a hero — but Chris isn’t sure he wants to be a hero any more.
