Caroline John reads this thrilling novelization of a classic Doctor Who adventure.

Inferno is the name of a top-secret drilling project to penetrate the Earth’s crust and release a major new energy source.

A crisis develops when a noxious green liquid leaks out as drilling progresses—the green poison has a grotesquely debilitating effect on human beings. 

As the Earth’s plight worsens, the Doctor is trapped in a parallel world, unable to rescue the planet and its inhabitants from the destructive force of Inferno …

Caroline John, who played Liz Shaw in the original Doctor Who TV serial, reads Terrance Dicks’ complete and unabridged novelization, first published by Target Books in 1984.
