Beschrijving

Tom Baker reprises the role of the Fourth Doctor in the first of five thrilling brand new audio adventures, with Richard Franklin as Mike Yates.

‘Wanted: retired army Captain for light household duties and fireside companionship. Must tolerate mild eccentricity and strong scientific advice. Knowledge of Giant Maggots, Super Intelligent Spiders and Prehistoric Monsters a positive boon.’

Responding to an advert apparently worded for him alone, Captain Mike Yates (retired) is reunited with a ghost from the past. But why has the Doctor, that mysterious traveller in Time and Space, sent for his former UNIT acquaintance? Trapped by a horde of vicious creatures in an apparently innocuous English country cottage, the two old friends are on the brink of an enormous adventure. As the Doctor relates his recent escapades, it becomes clear to Mike that they – and the Earth at large – are facing an enemy of unimaginable power and horrific intent. The nightmare is only just beginning...

With Susan Jameson as Mrs Wibbsey and Daniel Hill as Percy Noggins.

Paul Magrs

Paul Magrs (1969) is a writer and lecturer. He lives with his partner, author and lecturer Jeremy Hoad. Magrs is the author of numerous fiction and non-fiction works.

His first published writing was the short story Patient Iris, published 1995 in New Writing Four (edited by A. S. Byatt and Alan Hollinghurst). This was soon followed by his debut novel, Marked for Life, the same year. Other novels include Strange Boy (2003) and To the Devil — a Diva! (2004) and he has also published several short stories. With Julia Bell, he edited several issues of the University of East Anglia's Pretext.

He is also the author of four books in the BBC Doctor Who novel range, to which he introduced the character Iris Wildthyme, although she had originally been created in his unpublished first novel, which was named after her. He is the editor of a short story collection featuring the character, entitled Wildthyme on Top, released in 2005 by Big Finish Productions, for whom he has also written short stories and audio plays. He is also the author of a Doctor Who New Series Adventure, Sick Building, as well as a forthcoming second audio featuring The Eighth Doctor and Lucie Miller.

Magrs' novel Exchange was nominated for the 2006 Booktrust Teenage Prize and was longlisted for the 2007 Carnegie Medal. His Doctor Who novel, Sick Building, has made the shortlist for the Doncaster Book Award.

Magrs is Senior Lecturer in English Literature and Creative Writing at Manchester Metropolitan University, where he began work in 2004 having formerly taught at the University of East Anglia. He did his PhD at the University of Lancaster.

Magrs' non-fiction work includes The Creative Writing Coursebook, with Julia Bell and Andrew Motion, published 2001.
