'We have been waiting for you, Doctor. We knew you would come.' The TARDIS’s arrival, on a lonely stretch of beach at night, is closely followed by a slithering sound and a chilling roar – marking the beginning of a terrifying adventure on present day Earth for the Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith. The deadly Pescatons have arrived! Refugees from their own dying planet, these towering amphibian monsters are led by the mighty Zor – whom the Doctor has encountered before. Soon the creatures have invaded London, wreaking death and destruction upon the city and all who stand in their way. In their efforts to help save the planet’s population from this violent onslaught, the Doctor and Sarah must draw upon all their reserves of courage and ingenuity. In an exclusive and highly entertaining bonus interview, recorded especially for this release, Elisabeth Sladen talks about her memories of Doctor Who and the Pescatons, her portrayal of the ever-popular Sarah Jane Smith, and what it was like to be part of the Doctor Who team in the 1970s.

About the Author:

Victor Pemberton's career started in radio when his flatmates challenged him to write a play because he was criticising another. The result was The Gold Watch in 1961, the first of many radio scripts. His first television script was for Associated Rediffusion’s Send Foster (1965), concerning the exploits of a junior reporter on a local newspaper. He also worked as an actor to supplement his writing income and this led to director Morris Barry casting him in Doctor Who (The Moonbase). After a brief stint writing and script-editing Doctor Who in the mid-Sixties, Victor contributed to Timeslip and Ace of Wands and wrote numerous other scripts for radio and television. He produced Fraggle Rock in the 1980s, as well as setting up a Writers’ Television Workshop in Lagos, Nigeria, and working in Kuwait on a drama series about the daily life of a Gulf Arab family (Bait Abu Khaled). In 1990, Headline books invited Pemberton to write a novelisation of a BBC Drama series he had penned called Our Family. This was published in 1991 and led to a successful career as a novelist, and to date he has published fifteen ‘family saga’ novels, including Where the Swallows Come Again (2008).
