Doctor Who: Babblesphere
Whereas March saw the Third Doctor and the Brigadier investigating a strange disappearance in the Outer Hebrides in Vengeance of the Stones, April finds adventure in store for the Fourth Doctor, and Romana.

What’s more, they are enslaved to the Babble network which occupies their every waking moment. Every thought, however trivial or insignificant, is shared with everyone else and privacy is now a crime.
The colonists are being killed and the Doctor and Romana begin to suspect that a malevolent intelligence is at work…
