“Delicate matter, slightly. It’s about a book…”

Chris Parsons is happily engrossed in studying post-graduate physics at Cambridge, when one day he finds an old book, sitting on a dusty shelf in an ageing professor’s library. Written in a language nobody can read and made of a paper that can’t be torn, this is no ordinary book.

And when it enters his life, everything changes for young Chris Parsons.

Soon finding himself aboard an invisible space-ship, chased by monsters made of molten rock; aboard an alien prison on a distant planet and attacked by a horde of mind-control zombies. Chris also meets a strange man with a very long scarf who claims he can travel through time and space… in a police box.

It’s going to be a busy day for Chris Parsons.

      I’m under the impression this cover has been dumped? Is this the Clayton Hickman cover?

      No, we haven’t seen the Clayton Hickman cover. It’s just some people are saying that the Steelbook cover is better, but this person prefers this cover.

      More the likely it’s a blu ray + DVD set. One disc blu ray and 2 DVD version. Don’t get your hopes up as likly to be same as power of the sales and just have both formats

    Blimey! 40 quid seems a bit steep?

    Looks good though, but only paid that for the complete season 9 steelbook?
    (..which turned out to be a wise investment, as they’re selling for up to 200 quid on eBay now…wish I’d bought 2 now! )
