The Green Death begins slowly. In a small Welsh mining village a man emerges from the disused colliery covered in a green fungus. Minutes later he is dead.

UNIT, Jo Grant and Doctor Who in tow, arrive on the scene to investigate, but strangely reluctant to assist their inquiries is Dr. Stevens, director of the local refinery, Panorama Chemicals. Are they in time to destroy the mysterious power which threatens them all before the whole village, and even the world, is wiped out by a deadly swarm of green maggots? Katy Manning, who played Jo Grant in the original 1973 TV serial on which this book is based, reads Malcolm Hulke’s complete and unabridged novelization, first published by Target Books in 1975.

    " This is not really my typical kind of read, but it was lying around my parents' house so I picked it up. The writing is not great and the story is underdeveloped. I was, however, intrigued enough by the mystery at the heart of the story to see it through to the end. "

    " I haven't seen the TV story for this one (its not an era of the programme I'm particularly keen on), but the story was ok. Not sure about the ending, but then Companion departures are never that convincing. "

    " Green glowing slime, maggots, and a corporation heedless of the dangers combine in one of my favorite Pertwee adventures. I appreciate the little flourishes of insight Malcolm Hulke provides his stories. "

    " I recently started to read Dr. Who books. They aren't the greatest written books, but like a lot of science fiction, they are creative. "

    " Harlan's introduction was the best part of the book. The rest of it is strictly for hard-core fans who lived in the days before VCRs and DVD players were commonplace. Take the performance part out of Doctor Who, and the fun takes a serious hit. "

    " ONe of the Who books that improves on the TV episode, as it isn't hampered by a cheap special effects budget.

    The Doctor and JO Grant return to modern day London to find the people are gone and dinosaurs are roaming the streets. "
