Blood Harvest First Frontier

Strange England is the twenty-ninth New Adventures novel. It features the Seventh Doctor, Ace and Bernice Summerfield. This was Simon Messingham's only contribution to the Virgin Books range of novels. His next Doctor Who novel was the BBC Eighth Doctor Adventures novel The Face-Eater in 1999.

Publisher's summary

"The more the Doctor dreams," the Quack said, "the more real I become. He has not yet dreamed me fully, but he will."

When the TARDIS lands in the idyllic gardens of a Victorian country house, Ace knows that something terrible is bound to happen. The Doctor disagrees. Sometimes things really are as perfect as they seem.

Then they discover a young girl whose body has been possessed by a beautiful but lethal insect. And they meet the people of the House: innocents who have never known age, pain, or death — until now.

Now their rural paradise is turning into a world of nightmare. A world in which the familiar is being twisted into something evil and strange. A world ruled by the Quack, whose patent medicines are deadly poisons and whose aim is the total destruction of the Doctor.
