  • Doctor Who: The Trial of a Time Lord Collection

  • Four exciting novelisations in which the Doctor is on trial for his life.

    In The Mysterious Planet, the Doctor is brought before the court of his fellow Time Lords. If the Valeyard can prove him guilty, the Doctor must sacrifice his remaning regenerations.

    In Mindwarp, the second piece of evidence against the Doctor is presented to the court. One thing is certain: on the evidence of the Matrix, the Doctor is guilty as charged!

    In Terror of the Vervoids, the Matrix relates how the Doctor and Mel arrive on a space liner just as a series of grisly murders begins.

    In The Ultimate Foe, the Doctor asserts that the evidence of the Matrix has been tampered with. In a dramatic intervention, the Valeyard's true identity is revealed...

    Lynda Bellingham, Colin Baker, Bonnie Langford and Michael Jayston read these four suspenseful adventures by Robert Holmes, Philip Martin and Pip and Jane Baker.
