About the Author

The British actor Tom Baker, best known as the fourth incarnation of The Doctor, was born in 1934 in Liverpool, England. At age 15, Baker left school to become a monk with the Brothers of Ploermel on the island of Jersey. Six years later, he abandoned the monastic life and performed his National Service in the Royal Army Medical Corps, where he became interested in acting. He attended Rose Bruford College of Speech and Drama in Kent, England, on scholarship. Baker acted in repertory theaters around Britain until the late 1960s when he joined up with the National Theatre. Baker was working as a laborer at a building site when he landed the role of the main character in the popular, long-running British television series "Doctor Who" (1963), which brought him international fame and popularity.

Mummy's favourite Dec 2 2000
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
One of the most enjoyable of the Doctor Who serials in 1975 is adapted here by Terrance Dicks.
The Doctor is still trying to return Sarah to UNIT headquarters in modern-day London, when the TARDIS is drawn off-course by a mysterious course and ends up materialising in the right place but the wrong time - 1911, and there are strange happenings in Edwardian England.
The Priory, the home of Egyptologist Professor Marcus Scarman, is being occupied by Ibrahim Namin, supposedly a colleague of the professor, and Laurence Scarman is not allowed in. The Egyptian artifacts are more than they seem, mummies start to walk, and the small cast of the story are soon trapped within a force barrier, as Sutekh, an ancient evil, tries to return to wreak his revenge...
The book lacks the wonderful scenery and period costumes of the original TV serial, but the period feel is retained. This is the story where the Doctor is plainly cutting his strong ties to UNIT, and becoming once more a wanderer: "I'm a Time Lord, remember, not a human being... I walk in eternity."
As well as retelling this great story in the novel format, Terrance Dicks adds both a prologue and an epilogue that add to the story.
It's a great piece of Doctor Who, enjoyable in this book or on video (or both).
