The evil Master has stolen the Time Lords file on the horrifying Doomsday Weapon with which, when he finds it, he can blast whole planets out of existence and make himself ruler of the galaxy! The Time Lords direct Doctor Who and Jo Grant in the TARDIS to a bleak planet in the year 2471, where they find colonists from Earth under threat from mysterious, savage, monster lizards with frightful claws! And hidden upon the planet is the Doomsday Weapon, for which the Master is intently searching.
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, first published by Target Books in 1974."

Malcolm Hulke (1924 1979) was a British television writer and author of the industry bible, "Writing for Television in the 70s". He is remembered chiefly for his work on "Doctor Who", as well as his contributions to many popular television series of the era.
Geoffrey Beevers has worked extensively at the Orange Tree Theatre in Richmond upon Thames, both as an actor and as an adaptor and director of George Eliot s novel "Adam Bede", for which he won a Time Out Award, and Balzac s "Pere Goriot".
Geoffrey Beevers's narration of this 1974 serial shows how well the Doctor stands the test of time. Time, of course, is the center of the adventure in DOCTOR WHO, and here the Doctor and his assistant, Jo Grant, inadvertently travel to 2471. They become embroiled in a dispute between a band of colonists and a greedy mining company (and become party to the unknown motivations of the Master). Unlike many Doctor Who audio productions, this is a single-voice narrative, but Beevers does an outstanding job of making it sound like many voices are at work. There are minimal music and sound effects, but the narrative hardly needs them. For new and loyal fans alike, this is Doctor Who at his finest. F.G. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
