Publisher's Summary

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.

Baker is Sublime as the doctor, you'll love it

Baker is phenominal, A fantastic command of the english language, an exciting delivery Tom has a supreme confidence, one of the greatest voices of the last century, totally imersing.

Baker could make an inflight Safety Manual sound exciting to a pilot.

The story is pretty good too, Spine chilling, uncomfortable, creepy and disturbing, comedic, it flows like Sherlock Homles story, perfectly paced.

It leaves me rather irritated to think that Tom Baker hasn't been churning these audio books out by the dozen.

If you think that Jonathan Ross costs 13 million a year and he can't even pronounce his R's, baker must be into 9 figures.

No sign of ring rust here Baker is the Doctor, the Doctor is Baker, he didn't go away he, owns this, in fact everything he reads.

Tom Baker would give Christoper Lee, Peneoply Keith, or Steven Fry a run for thier money any day of the week.
