All four parts of this BBC drama series which told the tales of the Roman Emperors Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula and Claudius, as the dealings of the Roman political scene are revealed - amidst madness, deception and subterfuge.
Double episode Doctor Who adventure set on the planet Karfel and in nineteenth century Scotland. The Sixth Doctor (Colin Baker) and Peri, accompanied by a young man named Herbert, become entangled with the machinations of the despotic Borad. Planet Karfel consists of a small population ruled by a despotic, Wizard of Oz-like autocrat called The Borad. The Borad has never been seen in the flesh - only by means of closed-circuit television monitors wherein he appears a somber, upright old man. His rule of fear is enforced rigidly by an army of androids who destroy all dissent in a blink via the Timelash - an instant and irreversible exile to another, presumably horrific dimension. One member of the grand counsel immediately below The Borad, (called the Maylin) is less than happy with The Borad and seeks 'regime change' at any cost. A race of former allies called The Bandril sees weakness and opportunity in The Borad's semi-visible ruling methods and is set to invade. It is into this volatile situation that the Tardis materializes and our favourite time travelers are cast.
The Fourth Doctor departs, the Fifth arrives and the Master returns in these three classic 1980s adventures!
The entire second season of the 1970s BBC sci-fi series. 'Redemption' sees Orac's prediction of the Liberator's destruction looking likely to be fulfilled when the ship's original owners arrive and take the rebels prisoner. In 'Shadow', Blake becomes involved with an interplanetary crime syndicate. 'Weapon' sees Blake and crew set out to steal a deadly 'delayed-effect' gun, which Servalan also wishes to possess. In 'Horizon', the Liberator heads for the edge of the Galaxy, only to be taken prisoner on the planet Horizon. 'Pressure Point' sees Blake attempting to destroy the Federation's control centre, only to walk into a trap set by Travis. In 'Trial', Travis is made a scapegoat by Servalan for their failure to capture Blake. 'Killer' sees Blake and his crew stumbling upon a derelict spaceship whilst on a mission to crack the Federation's new transmission code. The craft houses a deadly plague which could threaten the existence of the entire universe. In 'Hostage', Travis tries to trap Blake by kidnapping his cousin, Inga. 'Countdown' sees Blake and crew coming to the aid of the planet Albian, whose population are dying from radiation poisoning. In 'Voice from the Past', a telepathic signal forces Blake to reroute the Liberator to an asteroid where Travis lies in wait. Whilst 'Gambit' sees Blake, Cally and Jenna visit a gambling world to find the man who knows the location of the Federation's Star One. Avon and Villa, meanwhile, choose to take Orac on an illicit gambling spree. In 'The Keeper', Blake tries to obtain the key to Star One from a tribal chief on the planet Goth. However, Travis has beaten him to it. Finally, 'Star One' sees Blake at last launch his attack on the Federation's headquarters, unaware that an alien fleet is poised to invade.
A double helping from the 'Doctor Who' archives. Never aired on television due to a strike in 1979, the uncompleted six-part adventure 'Shada' traces the chase to recover a powerful book, 'The Artifacts of Gallifrey', stolen from retired timelord Professor Chronotis (Denis Carey). Skagra (Christopher Neame) is the evil despot responsible for this foul jiggery-pokery. Original footage from this episode was used as the Fourth Doctor's involvement in 'The Five Doctors', before it was reassembled, with an older and portlier Tom Baker narrating the missing gaps. Also included is the BBC-produced documentary 'More Than Thirty Years in the Tardis', a compilation of clips spanning the first thirty years of the Doctor, including some previously unseen footage, plus interviews with the many stars, writers, producers and designers.
