SYNOPSIS

1989 Target Books edition

Launched into space 350 years ago, a meteor is returning to Earth – and inside it waits Nemesis, a silver statue made of the living metal validium, the most dangerous substance in the Universe.

Evil powers await the statue’s return: the neo-nazis de Flores and his stormtroopers, Lady Peinforte, who saw Nemesis exiled in 1638 and has propelled herself forward in time, and the advance party of a Cyberman invasion force.

And in the garden of a Windsor pub, The Doctor and Ace are enjoying the timeless sounds of a jazz quartet …

This story celebrates 25 years of Doctor Who on television.

1993 Target Books edition

‘IT’S ALL OVER, ACE. I’VE LOST, I CAN ONLY SURRENDER. THE CYBERMEN WILL HAVE THE NEMESIS.’

Launched into space 350 years ago, a meteor is returning to Earth – and inside it waits Nemesis, a silver statue made of the living metal validium, the most dangerous substance in the Universe. Evil powers await the statue’s return: the neo-nazis de Flores and his stormtroopers, Lady Peinforte, who saw Nemesis exiled in 1638 and has propelled herself forward in time, and the advance party of a Cyberman invasion force. But only one person has the power to activate Nemesis: the statue’s creator, The Doctor.

In this story, the Cyberleader was played on screen by David Banks, who is the author of the recently published Doctor Who New Adventures novel Iceberg.
