The Eye of the Giant is an original novel written by Christopher Bulis and based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. It features the Third Doctor, Liz Shaw and UNIT. It takes place prior to the Missing Adventure The Scales of Injustice by Gary Russell.


The Doctor and Liz Shaw investigate a mysterious artifact, and trace its origin back in time to the island of Salutua, 1934, where an expedition is taking place concerning the island's unusual inhabitants. Meanwhile, Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart faces a major epidemic of UFO sightings and supernatural occurrences that threaten to bring about worldwide panic.
