A Device of Death is an original novel written by Christopher Bulis and based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. It features the Fourth Doctor, Sarah and Harry.


The TARDIS crew have been separated: Sarah is marooned on a slave world, Harry is in the middle of an interplanetary invasion, and the Doctor lands on a world without a name and his memory wiped. Why have they been scattered, and what is the interest of the Time Lords in this sector of space? Possibly an ultimate device of death somewhere within.
