Publisher's Summary

A deadly night attack on an army base. Vehicles are destroyed, building burned, soldiers killed. The attackers vanish as swiftly as they came, taking highly advanced equipment with them.

Metal figures attack a shopping mall. But why do they only want a new games console from an ordinary electronics shop? An obscure Government Ministry is blown up - but, in the wreckage, no trace is found of the secret, state-of-the-art decoding equipment.

When the TARDIS returns The Doctor and Martha to Earth from a distant galaxy, they try to piece together the mystery. But someone - or something - is waiting for them. An old enemy stalks the night, men no longer made of flesh...

Featuring The Doctor and Martha as played by David Tennant and Freema Agyeman in the acclaimed hit series from BBC Television.

  • This was the second release in the BBC Books paperback-only Quick Reads series, and the first New Series-related work to be written by prolific Doctor Who novelist Dicks; Dicks also served a script editor for the series in the early 1970s and wrote numerous episodes in the 1960s, 70s and 80s, making this the first time a writer from the original series has been involved in a New Series-related product. The book marked Martha Jones' public debut as it was not only released prior to her debut in the standard hard cover book series, but also prior to her first television appearance in Smith and Jones.
