In search of a segment of the Key of Time, the Doctor, Romana, and K9 arrive on the planet Tara, whose population has long mastered the art of android engineering. Romana is apprehended by the ambitious Count Grendel, who seeks to overthrow the king in waiting, and the Doctor is coerced into helping those loyal to the crown. With Reynart locked away in Grendel’s dungeons, the Doctor must perfect an android that can be crowned in his place. Yet Reynart is not the only one of Grendel’s prisoners to have a double: the captive Princess
Strella is Romana’s doppelganger. A deadly game of cat-and-mouse ensues as
Grendel seeks to destroy the Doctor in his race to the Taran throne, x001A.
With original sound design, this brand new novelization is written specially for audio by David Fisher. It is read by John Leeson, who was the original voice of
K9 in the BBC TV series.
