The Fourth Doctor departs, the Fifth arrives and the Master returns in these three classic 1980s adventures!
The legend dates back to Roman times: a white worm, as wide as a man, slithers out of the rocks of the Dark Peak Gap to take animals, sometimes children, for its food.

Another adventure for the third incarnation of the famous timelord. The action this time takes place on Earth, with the Doctor (Jon Pertwee) coming up against all kinds of opposition within the British space program when he attempts to investigate some mysterious messages travelling to and from the returning spaceship Mars Probe 7. When the ship's astronauts arrive back home, suspicious circumstances prevent the Doctor from speaking to them, which only makes him more determined to get to the bottom of the matter.

And he is not alone in his amnesia. As the Sild invasion begins, the Doctor faces a terrible dilemma. To save the universe, he must save his arch-nemesis... the Master.

Three plays based on George Eliot's classic novel, which can be performed as a trilogy or as standalone pieces. George Eliot's Middlemarch is peopled with some of literature's most memorable characters. In Geoffrey Beevers' new dramatisation, all three interconnected plays can be performed as a trilogy, but each play can also stand on its own, telling the story of Middlemarch from the perspective of a different set of characters: from county, town and countryside. In Dorothea's Story, set among the big houses of the local aristocracy of Middlemarch, young, intelligent Dorothea is so enamoured of the pedantic Reverend Casaubon that she marries him, much to everyone's disbelief. But her friendship with Casaubon's young cousin Will Ladislaw arouses suspicions in her new husband, who will do anything to thwart their mutual affection. In The Doctor's Story, set in the town of Middlemarch itself, where everyone wants to know each other's business, idealistic Dr Lydgate arrives in Middlemarch determined to achieve great things. He catches the eye of the Mayor's beautiful, self-centred daughter Rosamond but is torn between ambition and loyalty as he is drawn into an alliance with a corrupt banker. In the poignant but light-hearted Fred and Mary's Story, set amongst hard-working countryfolk, Fred is trying to please his parents and become a country gentleman, but his childhood sweetheart Mary will have none of it. The Middlemarch Trilogy premiered at the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, in October 2013.

For two decades, from the mid-1960s to the mid-1980s, every fan of the Doctor hoped to find The Doctor Who Annual in their Christmas stocking. Larger than life and twice as colourful, the stories within were exuberant - and often charmingly naive - in their take on `the children's own programme which adults adore'. Here, for the first time on audio, Peter Purves (Steven), Anneke Wills (Polly), Geoffrey Beevers (the Master), Matthew Waterhouse (Adric) and Nicola Bryant (Peri) read a selection of these colourful and energetic tales. In The Sons of Grekk, the First Doctor is held prisoner in a brutal, otherworldly society. The King of Golden Death finds that the Second Doctor, Polly and Ben have materialised inside an Ancient Egyptian pyramid. The Third Doctor, Jo and the Brigadier confront a familiar adversary in Dark Intruders, whilst in Conundrum the Fourth Doctor, Adric and K9 experience warped physics in the corridors of the TARDIS. FacingThe Penalty, a delirious Fifth Doctor finds old friends and adversaries ganging up on him, and the Sixth Doctor and Peri plunge into a dangerous period of British history in The Real Hereward. Also included are two vintage essays on the character of our favourite Time Lord: Who is Doctor Who? from 1966 and The Phoenix in the TARDIS from 1968. Take a nostalgic journey through time with these vintage Doctor Who tales. Duration: 2 hours 20 mins
