The Wheel. A ring of ice and steel turning around a moon of Saturn, and home to a mining colony supplying a resource-hungry Earth. Its a bad place to grow up. The colony has been plagued by problems. Maybe its just gremlins, just bad luck. But the equipment failures and thefts of resources have been increasing, and there have been stories among the children of mysterious creatures glimpsed aboard the Wheel. Many of the younger workers refuse to go down the warren-like mines anymore. And then sixteen-year-old Phee Laws, surfing Saturns rings, saves an enigmatic blue box from destruction. Aboard the Wheel, the Doctor, Jamie, and Zoe find a critical situationand they are suspected by some as the source of the sabotage. They soon find themselves caught in a mystery that goes right back to the creation of the solar system. A mystery that could kill them all.

Stephen Baxter is one of the UK's most acclaimed writers of science fiction and a multi-award winner. His many books include the classic Xeelee sequence, the Time's Odyssey novels (written with Arthur C. Clarke) and Time Ships, a sequel to H. G. Wells's The Time Machine, a Doctor Who novel, The Wheel of Ice, and most recently the epic, far-future novels Proxima and Ultima. He lives in Northumberland.Review:
"Not just an excellent Doctor Who book, The Wheel of Ice is a first-rate science fiction novel which cements Baxter's reputation as one of our leading contemporary genre authors... The AudioGo novelisation goes one step further than the book by having Patrick Troughton's actor son David as the reader... he's the perfect choice for this story, and brings Baxter's tale to life in a way other talents may not have achieved." http://www.thecomet.net
