One of the most popular Doctor Who serials, with both fans and the cast, 'The Daemons' is adapted by then-series producer and co-author of the original script.
Professor Horner plans to open a barrow known as the Devil's Hump, and the Doctor and Jo head off to stop him. They arrive just too late, as the barrow is opened on the stroke of midnight, releasing an ancient power.
Allied with Miss Hawthorne, the local white witch, the Doctor and his UNIT allies find themselves face to face with a force from before the beginning of history and the Master, who is endeavouring to bring this power under his control...
The illustrations are passable but not terribly good.
This story has strong roles for all the regulars, as well as Miss Hawthorne, and should satisfy most readers who are fond of this period of Doctor Who's history.
