The evil Master has stolen the Time Lords’ file on the horrifying Doomsday Weapon with which, when he finds it, he can blast whole planets out of existence and make himself ruler of the galaxy! The Time Lords direct Doctor Who and Jo Grant in the TARDIS to a bleak planet in the year 2471, where they find colonists from Earth under threat from mysterious, savage, monster lizards with frightful claws! And hidden upon the planet is the Doomsday Weapon, for which the Master is intently searching.

Geoffrey Beevers, who played an incarnation of the Master in the classic BBC TV Doctor Who series, reads Malcolm Hulke’s complete and unabridged novelization, first published by Target Books in 1974.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Geoffrey Beevers’ narration of this 1974 serial shows how well the Doctor stands the test of time…Unlike many Doctor Who audio productions, this is a single-voice narrative, but Beevers does an outstanding job of making it sound like many voices are at work. There are minimal music and sound effects, but the narrative hardly needs them. For new and loyal fans alike, this is Doctor Who at his finest.”

    " Takes a fairly forgettable and padded Pertwee six-parter and turns it into something special. Malcolm Hulke embellishes some things, fudges some continuity and delivers a story that works better as a novelization than it does on-screen.
