Publisher's summary Edit

Every time the lights go out, someone dies...

The TARDIS lands at an academy for top athletes, all hoping to be chosen for the forthcoming Globe Games. But is one of them driven enough to resort to murder? The Tenth Doctor discovers that the students have been hushing up unexplained deaths.

Teaming up with a young swimmer called Emma, the Doctor begins to investigate – but he doesn't expect to find a squad of Sontarans invading the academy!

As the Sontarans begin their own lethal version of the Globe Games, the Doctor and Emma must find out what's really going on. But the Doctor is captured and forced to take part in the Sontaran Games. Can even a Time Lord survive this deadly contest?

Notes Edit

  • As with the main BBC New Series Adventures line, this novel continued the series of stories in which the Doctor travels without an ongoing companion. This was the first Quick Reads to not feature one of the regular companions.
  • The novel also continued with the BBC Books main range theme for 2009 in featuring returning races and villains from the TV show, although all Quick Reads releases to date have featured past monsters anyway.
  • Although initially thought to be the final Tenth Doctor Quick Reads release, another book was published in March 2010, entitled Code of the Krillitanes. It was published several months after David Tennant had left the series.
  • This novella was also released as an ebook available from the Amazon Kindle store.
