May Day is approaching in the English village of Little Hodcombe, scene of an ancient Civil War battle. When the TARDIS arrives, the Doctor’s companion Tegan is hoping to visit her grandfather. Yet the travelers learn that he has mysteriously disappeared, and the planned reenactment of the battle has taken on a menacing tone.

Local schoolteacher Jane Hampden knows how the county squire plans to celebrate May Day: with the May Queen meeting a grisly end. Can Jane make the villagers see sense, or are they all under the influence of some unseen force? The village church holds the clues to what is happening in Little Hodcombe, and soon the Doctor is facing an ancient alien foe. Can he and his friends triumph against it?

Eric Pringle’s novelization of his own TV serial is read by Nerys Hughes, who played Todd in the Doctor Who episode “Kinda.”

  • “This story should tick all the boxes for a Doctor Who classic, being a tale of a typical English village under siege from an alien force…A jolly little romp, with some nice ideas and a well-developed plot.”
