Rating
Geoffrey Beevers reads this exciting novelisation of a classic TV adventure for the Fourth Doctor. The Doctor is suddenly summoned to Gallifrey, the home of the Time Lords, where his ghastly hallucinations of the President's assassination seem to turn into reality. When the Doctor is arrested for the murder, a hideous, dark, cowled figure is gleefully watching in the shadows. In a battle of minds, the Doctor faces renegade Time Lord the Master, inside a nightmare world created by his old enemy's imagination. But the Master's evil intentions go much further - he has a Doomsday Plan. It is up to the Doctor to prevent him from destroying Gallifrey and taking over the Universe! Geoffrey Beevers, who played an incarnation of the Master in the BBC TV series, reads Terrance Dicks's complete and unabridged novelisation, first published by Target Books in 1977.

About the Author

Born in East Ham, London, in 1935, Terrance Dicks was educated at the local grammar school and went on to read English at Downing College, Cambridge. After two years' national service in the army, he got a job as an advertising copywriter. This lasted for five years, during which time he started writing radio scripts as a sideline. Eventually he switched to full-time freelance writing, first on plays and comedy series for radio and then in television on programmes like The Avengers and Crossroads. Following some five years as script editor on Doctor Who, ending in 1974, he returned to a freelance writing career. Later he produced some of the BBC's classic serials. Aside from his contributions to the Doctor Who TV series, he has also written two spin-off plays: The Seven Keys to Doomsday in 1974 and Doctor Who - The Ultimate Adventure in 1989; and well over fifty novelisations. Today he is one of the UK's most prolific authors of children's fiction.

Reviews

"The Deadly Assassin marks another hit from a range that continues to reward the listener. These audiobooks are often like revisiting an old friend you've lost touch with, and are reminded of all the great qualities they possess." -- Mark Wright * Doctor Who Magazine *
