A thrilling new Doctor Who novel by award-winning novelist A. L. Kennedy, featuring the Fourth Doctor, as played by Tom Baker.
Isnīt life terrible? Isnīt it all going to end in tears? Wonīt it be good to just give up and let something else run my mind, my life?
Something distinctly odd is going on in Arbroath. It could be to do with golfers being dragged down into the bunkers at the Fetch Brothersī Golf Spa Hotel, never to be seen again. It might be related to the strange twin grandchildren of the equally strange Mrs Fetch - owner of the hotel and fascinated with octopuses. It could be the fact that people in the surrounding area suddenly know what others are thinking, without anyone saying a word.
Whatever it is, the Doctor is most at home when faced with the distinctly odd. With the help of Fetch Brothersī Junior Receptionist Bryony, heīll get to the bottom of things. Just so long as he does so in time to save Bryony from quite literally losing her mind, and the entire world from destruction.
Because something huge, ancient and alien lies hidden beneath the ground - and itīs starting to wake up...
