Publisher's Summary

An unabridged reading of this classic novelisation of a 1968 TV adventure featuring the Second Doctor, as played on screen by Patrick Troughton.

For 40 years the Yeti had been quiet, a collector's item in a museum. Then, without warning, it awoke and savagely murdered. At about the same time, patches of mist began to appear in Central London. People who lingered in the mist were found dead, their faces smothered in cobwebs. The cobweb seeped down, penetrating the Underground System. Slowly it spread....

When the Doctor, Jamie and Victoria arrive, they find not just one Yeti but hordes, roaming the misty streets and cobwebbed tunnels, killing everyone in their path. London has been gripped tight in a Web of Fear....

Great performance from David Troughton!

Entertaining, fast paced story. An absolutely amazing performance by David Troughton, with a completely authentic portrayal of his father and the rest of the Tardis crew. Great stuff. Highly recommended.

Beware the Web !!

Another great audio book from the original Target adaptations of the classic era of Dr Who and you don't get more classic than Web of Fear! brilliantly read by Patrick Troughtons's son David who as you might imagine captures his dads characterisation spot on as well as all the other players in what I consider one of the better novelisation's by Terrance Dicks. Atmospheric and really captures the creepy dark dank feeling of being trapped underground with lumbering monsters around every bend of the tunnels. 5 stars

David Troughton for the win!!!

Terrance Dicks' novelisation of The Web of Fear is just as intense as it's tv counterpart. Here it is superbly brought to life by David Troughton, one character distinguishable to another thanks to his amazing ability to recreate accents. David does his father proud (2nd Doctor Patrick Troughton) reading one of Patrick's better tv adventures.

A tribute to his father

A wonderful reading of a classic Dr Who by David Troughton. There are times in this book when you could almost swear that it is Patrick Ttoughton speaking, I can see his whimsical little figure as the Doctor chasing down the yetis and the accent and intonation of his voice also captures Jamie perfectly. One of my favorite stories masterfully read, I would recommend this book to any Doctor Who fan.
