History books don’t always tell the whole story. Certainly there is no record of an episode that occurred when the Scots, led by Bonnie Prince Charlie, were defeated by the English at the Battle of Culloden in 1746—and the presence at the time of a blue police box on the Scottish moors seems to have escaped the notice of most eye-witnesses …

The Highlanders sets the record straight. And while the incidents described may not be of great interest to historians, for Jamie McCrimmon they mark the beginning of a series of extraordinary adventures. Anneke Wills, who played the Doctor’s companion Polly in the original BBC TV serial, narrates Gerry Davis’ complete and unabridged novelization.

    " Gerry Davis' best novelization. Concise, exciting, and with a surprisingly romantic re-interpretation of Polly's relationship with an English redcoat, this is excellent work. Highly recommended. "

    " A lovely fun read. The Second Doctor is as delightful as the modern version, saving his friends with cleverness and drag. Ben and Polly aren't too shabby either. This story also introduces the wonderful Jamie. A real treat for fans of the Doctor! "
