It’s taken quite some time, but The Scales of Injustice is finally out as an audiobook!
Originally published as a Virgin Missing Adventure in 1996, Gary Russell’s novel, featuring the Silurians, was republished under The Monster Collection banner in 2014 alongside Corpse Marker, Shakedown, The Sands of Time, Touched by an Angel, Illegal Alien, Sting of the Zygons, and Prisoner of the Daleks. These have slowly been adapted for audio over the past couple of years, so it’s great to finally enjoy The Scales of Injustice.
Here’s its official synopsis:
When a boy goes missing and a policewoman starts drawing cave paintings, the Doctor suspects the Silurians are back. With the Brigadier distracted by questions about UNIT funding and problems at home, the Doctor swears his assistant Liz Shaw to secrecy and investigates alone.
But Liz has enquiries of her own, teaming up with a journalist to track down people who don’t exist. What is the mysterious Glasshouse, and why is it so secret?
As the Silurians wake from their ancient slumber, the Doctor, Liz, and the Brigadier are caught up in a conspiracy to exploit UNIT’s achievements – a conspiracy that reaches deep into the heart of the British Government.
It’s read by Dan Starkey, who’s best known for playing Strax, one of the Paternoster Gang in serials like A Good Man Goes to War, The Crimson Horror, and Deep Breath, but who also plays various Sontarans for Big Finish.
With a duration of 8 hours approx., this is a perfect way to while away the dark nights, or enjoy as you wait in traffic to get to the shops over the festive period!
The Scales of Injustice audiobook is out now, priced £25.00.
