9780426201335: Doctor Who and the State of Decay

Geoffrey Beevers reads this exciting novelization of a 1980 TV adventure featuring the Fourth Doctor, as played by Tom Baker. The Doctor, Romana, and K9—and a young stowaway called Adric—are trapped in the alternative universe of E-Space. Seeking help, they land on an unknown planet. There they find a nightmare world where oppressed peasants toil for the Lords who live in the Tower, and where all learning is forbidden: a society in a state of decay. What is the terrifying secret of the Three Who Rule? What monstrous creature stirs beneath the Tower, waking from its thousand year sleep? The Doctor discovers that the oldest and deadliest enemy of the Time Lords is about to spring into horrifying action. John Leeson provides the Voice of K9. Duration: 4 hours approx.

About the Author:

Terrance Dicks read English at Downing College, Cambridge. After two years’ national service in the army, he got a job as an advertising copywriter. This lasted for five years, during which time he started writing radio scripts as a sideline. Eventually he switched to full-time freelance writing, first on plays and comedy series for radio and then in television on programs like The Avengers and Crossroads. Following some five years as script editor on Doctor Who, ending in 1974, he returned to a freelance writing career. Later he produced some of the BBC’s classic serials. Aside from his contributions to the Doctor Who TV series, he has also written two spin-off plays: The Seven Keys to Doomsday in 1974 and Doctor Who—The Ultimate Adventure in 1989; and more than 50 novelizations. Today he is one of the UK’s most prolific authors of children’s fiction.
