Publisher's Summary

An unabridged reading of the brand-new novelisation of a classic Fourth Doctor TV story by Douglas Adams.
The Doctor takes Romana for a holiday in Paris - a city which, like a fine wine, has a bouquet all its own. But the TARDIS arrives in 1979, a table-wine year, whose vintage is soured by cracks in the very fabric of time itself.
Soon the Time Lords are embroiled in an audacious alien scheme which encompasses home-made time machines, the theft of the Mona Lisa, the resurrection of the much-feared Jagaroth race, and the beginning (and quite possibly the end) of all life on Earth.
Aided by British private detective Duggan, the Doctor and Romana must thwart the machinations of the suave, mysterious Count Scarlioni - all twelve of him - if the human race has any chance of survival.

Fleshed out an already good story

From what I remember it follows the original story accurately but adds humour and insite into the characters. Enjoyed it very much.

Lalla Ward read it well... Quite a lot of technology terms that she read effortlessly.
