Hornet’s Nest: Hive of Horror
The excitement generated by Tom Bakerâ€™s return to his fourth Doctor role led to the Hornetâ€™s Nest dramas becoming the biggest ever pre order audio title for Play.com. The audios have been well received:
â€œ…A brilliantly produced storyâ€
â€œTom Bakerâ€™s reading is a delight as he wraps his larynx around the script with obvious relish.â€
Starring Tom Baker as the Doctor, Richard Franklin as Mike Yates, Susan Jameson as Mrs Wibbsey and Rula Lenska as the Queen, Hive of Horror is the fifth of five linked stories written by the acclaimed Paul Magrs…
As a new day breaks over Nest Cottage, the Doctor and Mike know they have to face their enemy for a final confrontation. Reduced to miniature size, and with Mrs Wibbsey along as an unwilling adventurer, they venture inside the hornetsâ€™ nest itself. The Queen lies in wait for the enemy which she and her brood have faced so many times over the millennia.
If she is to guarantee the survival of her alien hornet race for another thousand years, this is a battle she must win! The loyalty of the Doctorâ€™s friends will be tested to the limit. And perhaps,at last, they will all understand why Mike Yates is so importantâ€¦
