Doctor Who and the City of Death

By David Lawrence

[View large]

When the Doctor and Romana take a break from their travels in Paris 1979, a holiday is far from what they get.

Strange things are happening: lost art treasures are turning up, secret experiments are causing distortions in time, and the greatest art fraud in history is about to reach its fruition.

When the time travellers team up with Duggan, a British detective, they learn that everything points to Count Carlos Scarlioni, a wealthy and famous art collector who is somehow much, much more than he seems...

If Scarlioni is allowed to succeed, his plans will result in all life on Earth ceasing to have ever existed...
