System Shock is an original novel written by Justin Richards and based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. It features the Fourth Doctor, Sarah and Harry and is followed by the BBC Books Past Doctor Adventures novel Millennium Shock, also by Richards.


It is 1998 and the information age is just about to take off. However, mysterious events are plaguing London. A prominent spy is killed. A hostage situation bizarrely resolved. The Doctor receives a computer disc from a man who is supposed to be dead. It seems that an alien race is planning a takeover using Earth's ever expanding computer technology.
