Hornet’s Nest: Hive of Horror

, 3rd December, Hive of Horror is the fifth and final installment of the Hornet’s Nest series of audio adventures that mark the return to Doctor Who of the great Tom Baker!

The excitement generated by Tom Baker’s return to his fourth Doctor role led to the Hornet’s Nest dramas becoming the biggest ever pre order audio title for Play.com. The audios have been well received:

“…A brilliantly produced story”

The Observer

“Tom Baker’s reading is a delight as he wraps his larynx around the script with obvious relish.”


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 hornets’ 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 Doctor’s friends will be tested to the limit. And perhaps,at last, they will all understand why Mike Yates is so important…

You can buy each individual installment of Hornet’s Nest from Amazon for around 55% off the RRP – alternatively, pre-order the boxset, out on January 12th, 2010.
