Publisher's Summary

The Great Intelligence has been defeated. And Colonel Lethbridge-Stewart's world has changed. For Colonel Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart his life in the Scots Guards was straightforward enough; rising in the ranks through 19 years of military service. But then his regiment was assigned to help combat the Yeti incursion in London, the robotic soldiers of an alien entity known as the Great Intelligence.

For Lethbridge-Stewart, life would never be the same again. Now he has a mammoth task ahead of him - the repopulating of London; millions of civilians need to be returned home after being evacuated so suddenly. On top of that, he also has his engagement to think about. Meanwhile in the small Cornish village of Bledoe a man is haunted by the memory of an accident 30 years old.

The Hollow Man of Remington Manor seems to have woken once more. And in Coleshill, Buckinghamshire, Mary Gore is plagued by the voice of a small boy, calling her home. What connects these strange events to the recent Yeti incursion, and just what has it all to do with Lethbridge-Stewart?

A brand-new series of novels set just after the Doctor Who serial The Web of Fear, featuring the characters and concepts created by Mervyn Haisman and Henry Lincoln.

Terry Molloy is an experienced radio and television actor. Most notably he is best known as Mike Tucker in BBC Radio 4's The Archers, while on television he played the Doctor's evil nemesis Davros during the 1980s! He has also recently appeared on BBC 4Extra in the role of Professor Edward Dunning in The Scarifyers, produced by Cosmic Hobo Productions.

    "An unexpected treat!"

    I picked this up on a whim, not really expecting that much from it. The basic concept struck me as the sort of thing you'd expect from a fan-fiction writer. I'm happy to say that I was utterly and completely wrong.

    Most Doctor Who fans of a certain age have a real fondness for Brigadier (later General and Knight) Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, yet we know every little of the man himself. Stalwart, brave and no-nonsense, his portrayal by the late, great Nicholas Courtney varied between comic relief and valiant protector, according to the needs of the script. The problem with stories of this type is that they usually focus on one aspect of the character alone, turning them into caricatures. Andy Frankham-Allen does a magnificent job of avoiding this, bringing Lethbridge-Stewart to nuanced life; showing us the inner man in a way that does justice to Nick Courtney's warm portrayal.

    The story is wonderfully complex, being entertaining for new readers while being literally packed full of Easter eggs for long-term fans. There are some wonderfully oblique references to the continuity of the revived series of Doctor Who, slyly inserted in such a way that they reward the fan without baffling the more casual reader.

    The choice of Terry Molloy as a narrator for this audio version of the novel is a brilliant one. Aside from his connection to the worlds of Who as one of the men behind the villainous Davros, Molloy is a skilled voice actor in his own right, and he brings his talents to bear in this reading, giving each character a distinctive voice and personality all their own.

    I really cannot recommend this audiobook (and the novel itself) highly enough.

    "fantastic for Doctor Who fans"

    This will appeal to the older Doctor Who fans as well as the new. it follows the events of the Web Of Fear but encompasses some of the newer Doctor Who series. overall a very good story and well paced.
