Inferno is the name of a top-secret drilling project to penetrate the Earth's crust and release a major new energy source. A crisis develops when a noxious green liquid leaks out as drilling progresses - the green poison has a grotesquely debilitating effect on human beings. As the Earth's plight worsens, the Doctor is trapped in a parallel world, unable to rescue the planet and its inhabitants from the destructive force of Inferno... Caroline John, who played Liz Shaw in the original Doctor Who TV serial, reads Terrance Dicks' complete and unabridged novelisation, first published by Target Books in 1984.

The Doctor and Liz Shaw join the investigation as a second capsule, Recovery 7, is sent to discover what has happened. But when it returns, something is terribly wrong with its three astronauts... The space-suited figures are kidnapped and Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart leads UNIT in a rescue attempt - whilst Liz finds herself at the mercy of dangerous fanatics. Only a solo space flight by the Doctor can break the deadlock surrounding the crew of Mars Probe 7. Closer to home, however, a deadly fear threatens a catastrophic end for the entire Earth.

Caroline John, who played Liz Shaw in the original Doctor Who TV serial 'Spearhead from Space', reads Terrance Dicks' complete and unabridged novelisation, first published by Target Books in 1974.

Investigating on behalf of UNIT, Brigadier Lethbridge -Stewart calls the Doctor in to help, assisted by the scientist Liz Shaw. What the Doctor discovers is quite unexpected: the power losses are being caused by a group of intelligent, indigenous reptiles living in caves deep beneath the moor. These are the creatures who ruled Earth before Man, and they have lain dormant for centuries. Now awoken, they still believe Earth to be their planet. A power struggle amongst the Silurians threatens to overwhelm the Doctor's attempts to achieve peace between the reptiles and the humans. And when a deadly virus is released and spread throughout the country, the Doctor and Liz must work against the clock to save humanity... In an additional bonus interview, Caroline John, who also provides the linking narration for the story, recalls making Doctor Who and the Silurians for television.Show more

Caroline John, who played Liz Shaw in the original TV serial Doctor Who and the Silurians, reads Malcolm Hulke’s complete and unabridged novelisation, first published by Target Books in 1974. ‘They’re well-written books – adventure stories of course, but with some thought... the creation of the character of the Doctor had a touch of genius about it.’ - Westminster Press.Show more
