Past Doctor Adventure written by Jim Mortimore © 1998
An original novel featuring the fourth Doctor and Leela
Easter Island, 1842. Horace Stockwood, eminent archaeologist, has stolen
a stone tablet sacred to the islanders. He escapes into the open sea, but
massive, sinister stone figures are lining the cliff tops, watching him go...
Thirty years later, Stockwood is desperate to return. He has devoted his
life to studying the sacred stone, and needs to know if his theories are
correct. Visiting Earth with Leela, the Doctor's interest is piqued, and he
offers to fund Stockwood's expedition. But their journey proves more hazardous
than anyone would have expected.
What is the terrible secret that pushes Stockwood on - and what is his real
agenda? Who is trying to stop their mission before it has even begun? As the
Doctor begins to piece the answers together, it seems he may become an
accomplice to the terrible tragedy that threatens to befall the island. Ancient
powers are invoked, and dangerous secrets may soon be secret no longer...
