The paperback was first published by Target Books in 1987, and was written by Ian Stuart Black – the audiobook is read by Anneke Wills, who played companion Polly.
The full synopsis reads:
“In the far future a group of humans is living an idyllic existence on a distant planet. Their colony is run like a gigantic holiday camp, and nothing seems to trouble their carefree existence. When one of them claims that the colony is being invaded by hideous monsters, no-one takes him seriously. But the Doctor’s suspicions are immediately aroused. What is the terrible menace that lurks at the heart of this apparent paradise? Why are the colonists unaware of the danger that lies before their very eyes? And what is the Macra Terror?”
The Macra Terror audiobook is available on 3 CDs with a running time of just over 3 hours.
Both The Tenth Doctor Adventures and The Macra Terror are available now from Amazon for £28 and £19.99 respectively.
