What to expect

The Leisure Hive on the planet Argolis is an entertainment centre for galactic travellers. At the heart of the Hive is the Tachyon Recreation Generator, a machine with a most extraordinary performance capability and vital to the continued existence of the Argolin after their devastating war with the reptilian Foamasi... While visiting the Hive, the Doctor and Romana are sucked into a whirlpool of treachery and deceit, and are eventually arrested on suspicion of murder. Soon the Doctor is on trial for his life... Lalla Ward, who played Romana in Doctor Who, reads David Fisher's complete and unabridged novelisation, first published by Target Books in 1982. The voice of K9 is provided by John Leeson.

Listen to a sample

Romana actress Lalla Ward admirably lends her dulcet tones to the reading

A interesting contrast to its lavish TV original, this is closer to Fisher’s concepts, and is brought to life well.
