Novelisation

  • This novelisation is based on the original BBC Radio Drama Slipback which was shown from 1985 and written by Eric Saward. It was the first novelization of a Doctor Who story that had not been produced for television.
  • The cover and information shown on the right is for the original Target novel and featured the artwork of Paul Mark Tams. (See below for information on other UK and international editions which published with a different cover).

Publisher's Cover Blurb

The TARDIS materialises on board the Vipod Mor, a galactic survey ship captained by the repulsive Orlous Moston Slarn.
Things are not going too well on board the spacecraft: a mysterious killer stalks the ship's infrastructure; a junior officer, whose body is four years older than his brain, commands its bridge; the craft's computer seems to be developing its own distinctive personality; and Slarn threatens to vent his vindictive anger on his crew.
Soon the Doctor and Peri stumble upon a shocking secret, a secret upon which depends the fate of the entire Universe...
