The Web of Fear  

This was one of the first novelisations I ever bought (though I already had The Abominable Snowman - IIRC I bought this one because I recognised the yeti on the cover) and it completely terrified me. I seem to recall setting it aside because I couldn't continue it, and eventually got through it by reading backwards from the end in chunks.

It doesn't seem that scary these days.

My parents drifted away during the McCoy years, which explains my lack of exposure to it! My Mum and my Grandma took me to a Doctor Who exhibition when I was about seven (at the Museum of the Moving Image) which whetted my appetite and indicate that this programme was strange and wonderful as much as frightening. When there were some repeats on BBC 2 a year or so later, I was hooked.
