Doctor Who Tom Baker
Novelisations

From the early 1970s to the early 1990s almost every television adventure was novelised by Target books, the paperback division of WH Allen, and later an imprint of Virgin Publishing. Early adventures were stand alone novels, sometimes with new companions in the story, but later on they became novelisations of the story.

Published: 2015 BBC Books
No. of pages: 306
ISBN: 978-1-849-90675-3

'You're tinkering with time. That's always a bad idea unless you know what you are doing.'

The Doctor takes Romana for a holiday in Paris - a city which, like a fine wine, has a bouquet all of its own. Especially if you visit during one of the vintage years. But the TARDIS takes them to 1979, a table-wine year, a year whose vintage is soured by cracks - not in the wine glasses but in the very fabric of time itself.

Soon the Time Lords are embroiled in an audacious scheme which encompasses home-made time machines, and the theft of the Mona Lisa, the resurrection of the much-feared Jagaroth race and the beginning (and quite possibly the end) of all life on Earth.

Aided by British private detective Duggan, whose speciality is thumping people, the Doctor and Romana must thwart the machinations of the suave, mysterious Count Scarlioni - all twelve of him - if the human race has any chance of survival.

But then the Doctor's holidays tend to turn out a bit like this.
