US edition Edit
The Doctor needs YOU to save the galaxy from the bizarre manipulations of a madman in Crisis in Space.
The Doctor's assistant, Turlough, intercepts a message from Outer Space. Garth Hadeez, the Overlord of the gruesome Golons, has instructed his slaves, the midnight-black Neroids, to release a new planet into the Solar System.
YOU will join the Doctor's team in the struggle to save the Cosmos. Important decisions are yours to make as you Find Your Fate.
to be added
- Unusually and somewhat anachronistically, the Doctor, Turlough and Peri Brown are all carrying laser guns in this story.
- Peri's appearance differs from the one on the cover. In the in-book illustrations she is shown to have long hair as seen in Season 23, whereas on the cover she is shown to have short hair as seen in Seasons 21 and 22.
- The reader is addressed as Chris throughout the book as opposed to the nameless character in the previous adventure Search for the Doctor.
- To date, this is the only story in any medium to feature Turlough travelling with the Sixth Doctor.
