Publisher's Summary

An unabridged reading of Ben Aaronovitch's novelisation of his classic 1988 TV adventure featuring the Seventh Doctor.
With unfinished business to attend to, the Doctor takes Ace to Coal Hill School in London, 1963. The last time he was there, he left something behind--a powerful Time Lord artefact that could unlock the secrets of time travel.
Can the Doctor retrieve the Hand of Omega before two rival factions of Daleks track it down? And even if he can, how will he prevent the whole of London from becoming a war zone as the Daleks meet in an explosive confrontation?

Remembrance Of A Classic

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would heartily recommend this audiobook to any fan of Doctor Who. - Classic or New - and I plan to gift it to a friend of mine soon. The book is a classic in its own right as it seems to add extra detail such as back stories for the ICMG. I also love the way that the author treats you with respect throughout and makes the Daleks terrifying.


What did you like best about this story?

Apart from the aforementioned respect of the author, my favourite part of the audiobook was how it managed to make a story I have enjoyed multiple times in different formats, feel fresh and new again. You really start to like even the most obscure of the named characters which is very rare in novelisations.


Which character – as performed by Terry Molloy – was your favourite?

Of all the characters I feel his narration most suited either The Doctor himself - even with his sometimes funny attempts to match McCoy's Scottish accent! - or Group Captain Gilmore. His narration is perfect for matching the Doctor's Machiavellian scheme both in triumph and frustrated desperation as well as the military crispness of the Group Captain.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I honestly don't know how to answer this question. It made me laugh and whoop with triumph. It made me somber in its moments of pathos. But I recommend buy it and find out for yourself!


Any additional comments?

One of my favourite Who stories is now on Audible!
