BBC Past Doctor Adventures
The Final Sanction Divided Loyalties

City at World's End was the twenty-fifth BBC Past Doctor Adventures novel. It featured the First Doctor, Susan, Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright.

Publisher's summary Edit

The Doctor and his companions land in the city of Arkhaven, the last bastion of civilisation on a doomed world.

The inhabitants of the city are pinning all their hopes on a final desperate gamble for survival. Behind the scenes there are jealous factions at work, secretly contesting for the chance to shape the destiny of a new world. Beneath its ordered surface, Arkhaven is a city of secrets and mysteries where outward appearances can be deceptive.

Is the thing they call the "Creeper" really at large in Arkhaven's eerie outer zone — and is it beast or machine? What is the hidden force at work that has acted so strangely upon Susan?

With Barbara lost and the countdown to doomsday drawing to a climax, the Doctor must discover the true nature of the final enemy — or is that enemy simply fear itself?
