Stephen Thorne reads this delightful novelization of a classic Doctor Who adventure

Long, long ago on the great plains of Asia Minor, two mighty armies faced each other in mortal combat. The armies were the Greeks and the Trojans, and the prize they were fighting for was Helen, the most beautiful woman in the world.

To the Greeks it seemed that the city of Troy was impregnable and only a miracle could bring them success. And then help comes to them in a most mysterious way, as a strange blue box materializes close to their camp, bringing with it the Doctor, Steven and Vicki, who soon find themselves caught up in the irreversible tide of history and legend …

Stephen Thorne, who appeared in several episodes of the classic BBC TV Doctor Who series, reads Donald Cotton’s complete and unabridged novelization, first published by Target Books in 1985.

  • “Delightful… it is a lovely little slice of 1960s Who that still has the power to entertain today, even when the competition is Brad Pitt and Orlando Bloom.”

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Daniel Kukwa | 9/6/2013

    " One of the most experimental of Target novelizations, it's an excuse for Donald Cotton to go to town on his Harntell-era Doctor Who script...and come up with something even more entertaining, hilarious, and poignant than the original! "

    " A decent read. I liked the narration in it (from Homer's point of view) much better than the narrative device in The Romans, Donald Cotton's other adaptation of one of his historicals, which was trying too hard to be funny all the way through. "

    " Bit of a weird one, but doesn't deserve some of the bad reviews it gets. Cotton, as always, is playing it for laughs and that's what it gets. "
