Publisher's summary Edit

Harry Sullivan.

Died 28 November 1936.

"Deliver us from Evil."

Harry is dead. Having left him abandoned and alone in pre-war Britain, the Fourth Doctor and Sarah try to solve the mystery of his death. But the only witness is in a lunatic asylum, driven mad by what he has seen. He tells of murder and mutilation, of living trees and long-dead legends, of wolfmen and war... And of a mysterious stranger known only as the Doctor.

Can it be true that Harry discovered the last resting place of the Holy Grail? Why are the flowers and trees in a Somerset village in full bloom at Christmas? And is it just a coincidence that Harry died under a full moon...?

Wolfsbane Preview

Comic preview from DWM 334. Illustration by Mike Collins.

  • A preview for this novel illustrated by Mike Collins appeared in DWM 334.
  • The December 1936 sequences take place contemporaneously with the events of the novel Players, whereas the October 1938 sequences take place contemporaneously with the events of the novel Timeless and shortly before those of the audio story Invaders from Mars.
  • It is implied — although not explicitly stated — that the Fourth Doctor's TARDIS was drawn to this time by the Eighth Doctor's, the future TARDIS still regenerating after the damage inflicted by the Paradox biodata virus. (PROSE: The Ancestor Cell, The Burning)
