The Fourth Doctor departs, the Fifth arrives and the Master returns in these three classic 1980s adventures!
More adventures with everyone's favourite time-traveller. In 'Full Circle', it soon becomes clear that all is not well when the Tardis scanner shows the Doctor (Tom Baker), Romana (Lalla Ward) and K9 an image of Gallifrey, only for them to discover an expanse of marshland when they venture outside the ship. The Doctor realizes that they have somehow travelled through a charged Vacuum Emboitment into E-Space where he meets the local Alzarians - themselves preparing to retreat to their damaged spacecraft, the Starliner, in an attempt to escape the lethal Mistfall. In 'State of Decay', when the Doctor, Romana and K9, still trapped in E-Space, land on a medieval planet, they do not realize that Adric has stowed away on the Tardis with them. They are soon in need of his help when they discover that the local society is ruled over by three vampire lords - Zargo (William Lindsay), Camilla (Rachel Davies), and Aukon (Emrys James). Finally, in 'Warrior's Gate', the Doctor may finally be on the verge of escaping E-Space when the Tardis is hijacked by Biroc (David Weston), a time-sensitive Tharil on the run from Captain Rorvik (Clifford Rose) and his crew of privateers. However, when K9 is damaged by the Time Winds, it becomes clear that he will not be able to make the return journey.
You are cordially invited to Argentia, the galaxy's most exclusive tax haven, to attend the funeral of mining magnate Carlo Mazzini.

Carlo's heirs have come to say their final goodbyes (and find out how much they've inherited) but when a masked killer begins picking them off one by one, Argentia goes into lock-down, closed off behind its own temporal displacement field. Can the Doctor, Nyssa, Tegan and Adric apprehend the murderer before Argentia - and everyone on board - is forever cut off from the rest of the Universe?

The time-travellers discover that a space capsule has landed nearby and its alien occupants intend to wipe out life on Earth by releasing rats infected with a great plague.
Two adventures from the early 1980s with Peter Davison starring as the Time Lord. In 'Kinda' (1982), the Doctor (Davison), Tegan (Janet Fielding), Adric (Matthew Waterhouse) and Nyssa (Sarah Sutton) land on paradisical Deva Loka, for rest and recuperation. However, the military expediton on the planet has lost several crew members, and the Doctor and Adric are taken hostage by the near hysterical Hindle. Meanwhile, Tegan's dreams have provided the gateway to an ancient evil, the snake-like Mara. The Doctor must prevent the Mara from taking over the Kinda and destroying the expedition, as the wheel of creation begins to turn. In 'Snakedance' (1983), a loose sequel to 'Kinda', Tegan must have made a mistake when she was setting the co-ordinates for the TARDIS, because the Doctor certainly hadn't intended landing on Manussa. When the Doctor learns that Manussa was once the home of the Sumaran Empire, he realises that an evil force has begun to take over Tegan's will. This force, the Mara, is planning to use Tegan as a vehicle to retake power on Manussa. Just as the celebrations to commemorate the destruction of the Sumaran Empire by the Federation are about to take place, the Legend of Mara is about to come true.
Another adventure for everyone's favourite Time Lord. When the TARDIS makes an unscheduled landing on a mysterious spacecraft heading towards planet Earth, the Doctor (Peter Davison) and his cohorts are surprised to find that the crew members are drawn from a variety of ancient Earth cultures. Their leader, however, is a frog-like alien known as Monarch (Stratford Johns), and the more the Doctor finds out about his plans for the future of Earth, the less he likes them.
Matthew Waterhouse reads this classic novelisation of a Fourth Doctor TV adventure. The Doctor, Romana and K9 are heading for Gallifrey when they temporarily lose control of the TARDIS. The significance of this event is only revealed when they land, not on Gallifrey but on Alzarius. The planet's legendary Mistfall is approaching, a time when giant scaly creatures emerge from the swamps and go on the rampage, leaving a trail of death and destruction in their wake. As the Alzarians take cover in the Starliner spaceship, one band of young rebels is determined to be different. Among them is Adric, a boy who inadvertently leads Romana and K9 into terrible danger. Will the Doctor be able to save all their lives and unravel the secret of Mistfall? Matthew Waterhouse, who played Adric in the BBC TV series, reads Andrew Smith's complete and unabridged novelisation, first published by Target Books in 1982. Reading produced by Lyndsey Melling.

Another adventure for everyone's favourite Time Lord.

Three digitally remastered Doctor Who episodes from the 1970s, '80s and '90s. In 'The Talons of Weng-Chiang' (1977), the Doctor (Tom Baker) and Leela (Louise Jamison) arrive in Victorian London to find that galactic war criminal Magnus Greel has created giant rats in the sewers and is sucking the life essence from young girls to sustain him in his search for his time cabinet. Aided by Professor Litefoot and music hall proprietor Henry Jago, the Doctor must stop Greel (masquerading as the Chinese god Weng Chiang) and his servants Li H'sen Chang and killer doll Mr Sin. 'The Caves of Androzani' (1984) represents the final outing for the fifth incarnation of everyone's favourite Time Lord. The Doctor (Peter Davison) and Peri (Nicola Bryant) become embroiled in an underground war of gun running and drug smuggling shortly after landing on the planet Androzani Minor. Apprehended by the military, they are rescued from execution by the brilliant but horribly disfigured criminal, Sharaz Jek, whose infatuation with Peri looks set to be cut short when he discovers that both she and the Doctor have contracted the deadly disease Spectrox Toxaemia. The only possible cure is the milk of the queen bat, which dwells in the caves currently being roamed by the killer Magma Creature... In 'Doctor Who: The Movie' (1996), the Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) crashlands the TARDIS on Earth in end-of-century San Francisco while en route to return the Master's remains to their home planet of Gallifrey. Gunned down by a street gang, the Doctor is rushed to hospital, where exploratory surgery by Doctor Grace Holloway (Daphne Ashbrook) triggers a regeneration. The Master has meanwhile taken over the body of a paramedic and infiltrated the Doctor's TARDIS, which he plans to use in his latest scheme to take over the Doctor's new body and destroy the world. Filmed as the pilot for a revived 'Doctor Who' series - tailored to the American market - which subsequently failed to materialise, this feature-length adventure introduces Paul McGann as the renegade Time Lord.
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
Matthew Waterhouse reads this novelisation of a classic 1982 TV serial featuring the Fifth Doctor, as played on TV by Peter Davison. When the TARDIS materialises on an alien space craft, the commander of the ship - the reptilian Monarch - invites the Doctor, Adric, Nyssa and Tegan to continue their journey to Earth in his company. Monarch's hospitality even extends to a generous offer to liberate the time travellers from the shortcomings of their bodies and replicate them as androids - so much more practical. Although Adric finds this proposal extremely attractive, the Doctor has good reason to be suspicious of Monarch's motives... Matthew Waterhouse, who played Adric in Doctor Who, reads Terrance Dicks's novelisation of a four-part TV serial by Terence Dudley.
Six more thrilling stories of adventure in Time and Space from the original Doctor Who Annuals. Larger than life and twice as colourful, from the 1960s to the 1980s the stories within the Doctor Who Annual were exuberant and charmingly naive. Now, in this second audio volume, Peter Purves (Steven), Anneke Wills (Polly), Geoffrey Beevers (the Master), Matthew Waterhouse (Adric) and Nicola Bryant (Peri) read another selection of these colourful and energetic tales, with atmospheric sound design. In Peril in Mechanistria, the First Doctor finds primitive humans enslaved to machines in a world of metal. The Second Doctor must rescue Ben in The Sour Note, whilst in Scorched Earth the Third Doctor and Sarah are challenged by a virulent virus on Varium III. The Fourth Doctor has Double Trouble after he and his companions return to UNIT HQ, and then the Fifth Doctor and Adric visit a Planet of Fear. Finally, in The Radio Waves, the Master schemes to turn Londoners against politicians and the Royal Family. Can the Sixth Doctor and Peri stop him? Also included from 1966 is The Equations of Doctor Who, a vintage essay about the mysteries of the Doctor and his TARDIS. Take a nostalgic journey through time with these vintage Doctor Who tales.
