Publisher's Summary

Every time the lights go out, someone dies...

The TARDIS lands at an academy for top athletes, all hoping to be chosen for the forthcoming Globe Games. But is one of them driven enough to resort to murder? The Doctor discovers that the students have been hushing up unexplained deaths.

Teaming up with a young swimmer called Emma, the Doctor begins to investigate – but he doesn’t expect to find a squad of Sontarans invading the academy!

As the Sontarans begin their own lethal version of the Globe Games, the Doctor and Emma must find out what’s really going on. But the Doctor is captured and forced to take part in the Sontaran Games. Can even a Time Lord survive this deadly contest?




To be added


  • As with the main BBC New Series Adventures line, this novella will continue a series of stories in which the Doctor travels without an ongoing companion. This is the first Quick Reads to not feature one of the regular companions.
  • The novella also continues with the TDA's theme for 2009 in featuring returning races and villains from the TV show, although all Quick Reads releases to date have featured past monsters anyway.
  • This story features the Twelfth Sontaran Fleet.
  • Although initially thought to be the final Tenth Doctor Quick Reads release, a further book is now scheduled for publication in March 2010, several months after David Tennant exits the series.
