When the Fourth Doctor takes Leela to visit an immense tree space station known as the Heligan Structure, little do they know that the tree has been asleep for centuries, dreaming of vengeance against a man in a blue box ... As the tree awakes, the Time Lord and his companion soon discover why they are such unwelcome guests.
Author Philip Reeve puts his own unique spin on the Doctor, his terrifying alien enemies and time-travelling adventures.

Doctor Who: The Roots Of Evil
A fantastic story, captures the 4th Doctor and Tom Baker perfectly, a great read for all ages
A great little story
This story is the best of the specials to date. With quirky references to "Matt Smith's" version of the doctor it provides a good link to the current series.
The author has really captured Tom Baker's character reminiscent to the scripts by the late great Douglas Adams. The Jelly babies, scarves tied up with humour and intrigue makes it a great short story.
If you only read one of-these specials, this is the one to read.
