Publisher's Summary

Another entry in our range of unabriged readings of classic Doctor Who novelisations, first published by Target Books in the 1970s and 1980s.

The Green Death begins slowly. In a small Welsh mining village, a man emerges from the disused colliery covered in a green fungus. Minutes later, he is dead. UNIT, Jo Grant, and Doctor Who in tow arrive on the scene to investigate, but strangely reluctant to assist their inquiries is Dr. Stevens, director of the local refinery, Panorama Chemicals.

Are they in time to destroy the mysterious power which threatens them all before the whole village, and even the world, is wiped out by a deadly swarm of green maggots?

Katy Manning, who played Jo Grant in the original 1973 TV serial on which this book is based, reads Malcolm Hulke's complete and unabridged novelization, first published by Target Books in 1975.

Still scary after all these years!

My first memory of Doctor Who was The Green Death ...and it terrified me! I was convinced those maggots would come up through the toilet!
It was fantastic to hear the story again and Katy Manning does a marvellous reading. Gripping and still terrifying! Better go and check the toilet, just in case 😁

Great book, less music please

Loved the recording of this classic story, and great to have Katy Manning narrate it.

But the 'dramatic' becomes irritating.
