“Look, Brigadier! It’s growing!” screamed Sarah.

The Brigadier stared in amazement as the robot began to grow … and grow … swelling to the size of a giant! Slowly the metal colossus, casting its enormous shadow upon the surrounding trees and buildings, began to stride toward the Brigadier. A giant metal hand reached down to grasp him. Can Doctor Who defeat the evil forces controlling the robot before they execute their plans to blackmail—or destroy—the world?

Tom Baker, who played the Fourth Doctor in the BBC TV series, reads Terrance Dicks’ complete and unabridged novelization, first published by Target Books in 1975.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Of the ten actors who have played ‘The Doctor’ since the series began in 1963, Tom Baker held the job the longest (1974-1981) and is the best-known face of the Doctor among fans. So it’s appropriate that BBC Audiobooks enlisted Baker to narrate the novelization of his first appearance on the show. After his apparent death in Planet of the Spiders, the Doctor regenerated into his fourth incarnation (played by Baker on the television program). The Doctor joins with Sarah, Harry, and the Brigadier to protect humanity from a conspiracy that uses stolen technology to achieve world domination. Although Baker is twenty years older than he was when he played the Doctor, he still has the playful energy, the acting talent, and the voice to regenerate once again.”
