Cover blurbEdit

BORN-AGAIN ZYGONS

Investigating mysterious attacks on North Sea oil rigs, Doctor Who discovers that, yes, there really is a Loch Ness Monster.

Half-animal and half-machine, it's the Skarasen, a monster-child of the exiled Zygons. They and their crippled spaceship have been hiding for centuries. Now that they have regained their strength, the born-again but homeless Zygons plan to invade Earth, conquer its primitive people and stay on - as rulers.

Doctor Who is rather worried, even terrified, that the Zygons really might take over. Will Doctor Who be able to outwit the cunning strategies of the ruthless and dynamic Zygons in time to save us all?

Cover blurbEdit

'THIS IS NO ORDINARY SEA SERPENT... WE'RE DEALING WITH A CYBORG!'

Summoned back to Earth by Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, the Doctor is asked to investigate a series of mysterious attacks on Scottish oil rigs. The culprit appears to be Nessie herself, but the monster turns out to be a Skarasen, the half animal, half machine creation of the Zygons. The Doctor, Sarah and Harry must stop the Zygons, some of whom have taken human form, from making Earth their new home planet.

This book, previously published as DOCTOR WHO and the Loch Ness Monster, has been retitled in line with the TV story.

Cover blurbEdit

Harry stared in amazement at the fierce head on the immensely long neck, the huge body with its two low humps, and the flat, powerful tail. 'We must be under the Loch Ness,' he gasped. 'And that thing – that's the monster!'

Centuries ago, a Zygon spaceship crash landed in Loch Ness. Now, with their home planet destroyed, the alien creatures plan to take over Earth. Their most powerful weapon is a huge armoured dinosaur-like creature of terrifying power that they brought to earth as an embryo – the Loch Ness Monster.

The Doctor, Sarah and Harry soon discover that the Zygons have another weapon. They can assume the identity of any human they capture. Who knows which of their friends might really be a Zygon?

UNIT faces one of its toughest battles as Broton, Warlord of the Zygons, puts his plan into action and the Loch Ness Monster attacks.

THIS NOVEL IS BASED ON A DOCTOR WHO STORY WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY BROADCAST FROM 30 AUGUST TO 20 SEPTEMBER 1975.

Featuring the Fourth Doctor as played by Tom Baker, with his companions Sarah Jane Smith and Harry Sullivan and the UNIT organisation commanded by Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart
