THE AMBASSADORS OF DEATH

MORE THAN SEVEN MONTHS HAVE PASSED SINCE Mars Probe 7 left the surface of the Red Planet, yet nothing has been heard from the astronauts on board. With the stricken vessel now orbiting the Earth, Space Control has dispatched Recovery 7 to investigate.

As astronaut Charles Van Lyden enters the silent ship, there is a deafening electronic blast and his communication ceases abruptly. Back on Earth, the Doctor identifies the disturbance as a message of alien origin and correctly deduces that there will be a reply, which is duly transmitted from a disused warehouse nearby.

As the Doctor and Liz Shaw attempt to decipher the alien communications, Professor Ralph Cornish and his Space Control team successfully bring Recovery 7 back to Earth. However, the craft is empty. It transpires that human conspirators have kidnapped its occupants – three silent, space-suited figures, alien ambassadors whose very touch is fatal to humans. It becomes increasingly apparent that there is a top-level conspiracy involved, prompting the Doctor to pilot Recovery 7 into space in order to locate the missing astronauts.

About Doctor Who Magazine

“Space: the final frontier. Final, because it wants to kill us...” The TARDIS doesn’t just travel through time – stories set in space have been an essential part of Doctor Who for six decades. The inhospitable void between the stars has served as the backdrop to epic space operas and nerve-racking thrillers, while harbouring some of the most dangerous adversaries the Doctor has ever encountered. This lavish publication navigates a revealing course through the space lanes of Doctor Who, with exclusive interviews, rare images, and guides to some of the most memorable episodes.
