Overview

Caroline John reads this gripping novelization of a classic Doctor Who adventure.

In this, the first adventure of his third incarnation, Doctor Who, Liz
Shaw, and the Brigadier grapple with the nightmarish invasion of the
Autons.

Living, giant-sized, plastic-modeled “humans” with no hair and sightless eyes, they are waxwork replicas and tailors’ dummies whose murderous behavior is directed by the Nestene Consciousness—a malignant, squid-like monster of cosmic proportions and indescribably hideous appearance.

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