“Doctor!” screamed Jo. “Look at that thing. It’s coming straight at us!” A small, black spaceship, about a mile away, was approaching rapidly. It had no lights, no markings. But some instinct told Jo that the tiny craft meant danger. 

The year is 2540, and two powers loom large in the galaxy—Earth and Draconia. After years of peace, their spaceships are now being mysteriously attacked and cargoes rifled. Each suspects the other and full-scale war seems unavoidable.The Doctor, accused of being a Draconian spy, is thrown into prison. And only when the Master appears on the scene do things really begin to move …

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, based on the TV adventure “Frontier in Space” and first published by Target Books in 1976.

    " This was a great book, embellishing the TV serial a lot and really getting the reader involved in the situations. A solid read, all in all. "

    " When 2 equally matched nations war, it is the arms suppliers/other nations who benefit. Harping on this theme, the book is about the Doctor's old enemy 'The Master" who foments war. Well written "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brian | 2/13/2010

    " I remember that I didn't really care for this one as much as Doctor Who: The Aztecs. "

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Doug | 6/2/2009

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Travis | 11/3/2008

    " 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. "
