The Macra Terror is an unabridged reading of this novelisation of the classic 1967 TV adventure of the same name featuring the Second Doctor, as played by Patrick Troughton.

The paperback was first published by Target Books in 1987, and was written by Ian Stuart Black - this audiobook is read by actress Anneke Wills, who played companion Polly. Check out the synopsis below:

In the far future a group of humans is living an idyllic existence on a distant planet. Their colony is run like a gigantic holiday camp, and nothing seems to trouble their carefree existence. When one of them claims that the colony is being invaded by hideous monsters, no-one takes him seriously. But the Doctor's suspicions are immediately aroused. What is the terrible menace that lurks at the heart of this apparent paradise? Why are the colonists unaware of the danger that lies before their very eyes? And what is the Macra Terror?

Fans will remember the Macra returned to television in the 2007 episode Gridlock, featuring the Tenth Doctor and Martha Jones. The Macra Terror audiobook is available on 3 CDs with a running time of just over 3 hours.

Both these titles are available now.
