Publisher's Summary

Bonnie Langford reads this exciting novelisation of a classic Doctor Who adventure, continuing the Trial of a Time Lord story arc.

The Time Lords have brought the Doctor to trial, accusing him of gross interference in the affairs of other planets. If he is found guilty he must forfeit all his remaining regenerations. In his defence the Doctor tells of an adventure set on board the Hyperion III space liner in his future.

Answering a distress call, the Doctor and Mel arrive on the liner just as a series of grisly murders begins. Who is behind the murders? Do the enigmatic Mogarians have anything to do with them? Who sent the distress call to the Tardis? And what hideous menace lies waiting in the Hydroponic Centre?

A complete and unabridged novelisation of the original story by Pip and Jane Baker, first published in 1987.

Eesh. The writing

Pip and Jane Baker, bless 'em, wrote good stories, occasionally heinous dialogue and overall, fairly cringeworthy books. The phrasing is archaic and in this particular story, you quickly get sick of 'waxy green leaves.'

Bonnie Langford delivers a reading that makes you want to put in the DVD, albeit mostly to escape from the grandiloquent prose. Nevertheless it's a deeper take on the Vervoids than TV allowed, so it would be churlish to complain too strenuously.
