Of the 10 actors who have played "The Doctor" since the series began in 1963, Tom Baker held the job the longest (1974-1981) and is the best-known face of the Doctor among fans. So it's appropriate that BBC Audiobooks enlisted Baker to narrate the novelization of his first appearance on the show. After his apparent death in PLANET OF THE SPIDERS the Doctor regenerated into his fourth incarnation (played by Baker on the television program). The Doctor joins with Sarah, Harry, and the Brigadier to protect humanity from a conspiracy that uses stolen technology to achieve world domination. Although Baker is 20 years older than he was when he played the Doctor, he still has the playful energy, the acting talent, and the voice to regenerate once again.
