Overview

Susan Engel reads this brand new novelization of a classic Doctor Who
serial featuring the Fourth Doctor, Romana, and K-9.

The stone circle of
Bodcombe Tor, in the south west of England, stands in tribute to a mysterious goddess. Long ago, six huge monoliths were arranged in a half circle, with an altar stone in the center. Then one day, mysteriously,
the six stones became nine. Stranger still, when blood was poured over them it was immediately absorbed …

When the Doctor, Romana, and K-9 arrive on Bodcombe Moor, they meet the elderly Professor Rumford and her friend Vivien Fay. From them they learn the checkered history of the stones, and of the inhabitants of the nearby manor house—currently one
Leonard de Vries, leader of a druidic sect. But all is not as it seems,
and soon the Doctor and his companions are enmeshed in a deadly web of deceit. Powerful creatures rampage across the moor, and the nature of a long family line is called into question. Romana is trapped by a cunning enemy, and time is running out for the Doctor and K-9 …

With original sound design, this brand-new novelization is written specially for audio by David Fisher. It is read by Susan Engel, who played Vivien Fay in the 1978 BBC TV serial, with John Leeson as the voice of K-9.
