Elsabeth Sladen reads this thrilling novelization of a classic Doctor Who adventure

“It’s happening, Brigadier! It’s happening!” Sarah cried out. 

The Brigadier watched, fascinated, as the lifeless body of his old friend and companion, Doctor Who, suddenly began to glow with an eerie golden light … The features were blurring, changing …

“Well, bless my soul,” said the Brigadier. “WHO will he be next?” 

The last exciting adventure of Doctor Who’s third incarnation. 

Elisabeth Sladen, who played Sarah Jane Smith in the original TV serial on which this book is based, reads Terrance Dicks’ complete and unabridged novelization.

    " I have a soft spot for transition stories ... and the transition between two of my favorite Doctors certainly does well for me. It's one of the more exciting stories, too ... large evil otherwordly spiders, greedy humans, and a couple of old friends round out the action-filled storyline. "

    " One of the better books in the series. A new theme of spiders with ESP and their own home planet "

    " The story ends the third Doctor's era is a big, fun jumble of a book. There's a wild and very long car chase, a weird psuedo-buddist cult, big, creepy alien spiders, and Jo Grant comes back for a brief guest appearance. "
