The two, helped by the dextrous Franky (Angelina Jolie) and technical whiz Dex (Giovanni Ribisi), uncover a plot by mad scientist Dr Totenkopf (Laurence Olivier in archive footage) to create a 'World of Tomorrow' - and destroy the world of today.

Four brand new stories featuring the investigators of infernal incidents, in one box set. Someone from the future has arrived in Victorian London on the trail of a renegade...but that trail leads them to Henry Gordon Jago and Professor Litefoot. So begins an adventure that will propel the Infernal Investigators into unknown territory, and an encounter with two people they should avoid at all costs. Themselves. Four more cases for the Infernal Investigators: 13.1: The Stuff of Nightmares by Paul Morris. Litefoot and Jago are both suffering from strange waking nightmares. They resort to hypnotherapy to try to diagnose the problem. But meanwhile a Time Agent is looking for them - as a way of tracking down the notorious criminal Magnus Greel. Before they know what is happening, our heroes find themselves trapped in a dystopian future where nothing makes sense any more. 13.2: Chapel of Night by Jonathan Barnes. Trapped in a parallel world, Jago and Litefoot are enlisted to help Inspector Quick investigate the mysterious Chapel of Night run by Mrs Bartholomew. Needless to say, there is more to the chapel - and Mrs Bartholomew - than there initially seems. Soon our heroes are caught up in another horrifying and dangerous adventure. But more to the point, can they ever get back to their own world again? 13.3: How The Other Half Lives by Matthew Sweet. Perhaps inevitably, Jago and Litefoot meet their counterparts in the world where they now find themselves. The Litefoot in this world still owns Greel's time cabinet, while Jago is also married to Xiu Xiu, a bar maid. But Greel's cabinet is not the only thing to survive from his time in this world - there is also a giant rat on the loose in the sewers beneath London. 13.4: Too Much Reality by Justin Richards. Jago and Litefoot meet their equivalent infernal investigators in this world - Aubrey and Betterman. Together they investigate sightings of a strange 'demon' and bodies that mysteriously fade away. Before long they discover a crashed spaceship, and find out the truth behind Mrs Bartholomew and the Chapel of Night. But even with this mystery solved, will they be able to get home again? This is the thirteenth of an incredibly popular audio spin-off series of two Doctor Who characters first encountered in hit story The Talons of Weng-Chiang in 1977.

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.

Four brand new stories featuring the investigators of infernal incidents, in one box set. 12.1: Picture This (by Justin Richards). An art gallery is robbed, and the curator killed. That might not seem of interest to Jago and Litefoot. But this is the fabled Scarlet Gallery - where the paintings are said to be haunted. And the curator has been drained of blood, as if killed by a vampire. Bizarrely, the only painting that has been stolen is in itself quite unremarkable compared with the others in the gallery. But even so, Jago and Litefoot soon find themselves caught up in events that could end in their deaths - or worse...12.2: The Flickermen (by Paul Morris & Simon Barnard). Jago is rather scathing of the new art of cinematography. Even so, he accompanies Litefoot to see a demonstration at a fairground. But this is no ordinary film. Can creatures live inside the film - or even escape from it? Ellie recalls childhood stories about the 'Flickermen', and elsewhere people start to flicker in and out of existence. By the end of their adventure, Jago and Litefoot will themselves be film stars. But what they see when the film of them is shown will give them both pause for thought...1 2.3: School of Blood (by Paul Morris). Acting on a tip off about the possible source of the vampiric murders that are now plaguing London, Jago and Litefoot investigate a girls' school. Due to a misunderstanding, Litefoot finds himself offered a job at the school, while Jago keeps watch on Ellie who they both think is behaving oddly. But before long, they both discover that all is not as it should be at the school. Can Jago and Litefoot track down the vampire before it claims more innocent victims? 12.4: Warm Blood (by Justin Richards). Ellie tells Jago and Litefoot that she has been in contact with a group of vampires and can lead the investigators to them. But can they trust her? With more victims turning up, Jago, Litefoot and Ellie make their way to a house that is supposed to be haunted, and which could be the vampires' base of operations. But what they find there will surprise and horrify Jago and Litefoot. Can they survive their encounter with the vampires when the Old One has decided that they must die?

Six Cabinet Ministers had come on from the Speaker's Levee in their stars and ribands, all the pretty women wore their smartest dresses, and at the end of the picture-gallery stood the Princess Sophia of Carlsruhe, a heavy Tartar-looking lady, with tiny black eyes and wonderful emeralds, talking bad French at the top of her voice, and laughing immoderately at everything that was said to her. It was certainly a wonderful medley of people. Gorgeous peeresses chatted affably to violent Radicals, popular preachers brushed coat-tails with eminent sceptics, a perfect bevy of bishops kept following a stout prima-donna from room to room, on the staircase stood several Royal Academicians, disguised as artists, and it was said that at one time the supper-room was absolutely crammed with geniuses. In fact, it was one of Lady Windermere's best nights, and the Princess stayed till nearly half-past eleven.

Ellie Higson believes that Mrs Vanguard can hear the voices of the dead, but Henry Gordon Jago thinks it is all theatrical trickery. But if Vanguard is a harmless fake, then why have some of those who have attended her seances disappeared mysteriously? 1.4 The Similarity Engine (Written by Andy Lane). When Jago takes a tumble on an unseasonably icy road, he ends up in hospital. The fiendish scheme of Dr Tulp is drawing to a cataclysmic climax. The Similarity Engine is operational, and a new, improved model of mahogany murderers have been unleashed...CAST: Christopher Benjamin (Henry Gordon Jago), Trevor Baxter (Professor Litefoot)Lisa Bowerman (Ellie), Conrad Asquith (Sergeant Quick), Toby Longworth (Doctor Tulp), Alex Lowe (Private Michaels), Robin Bowerman (Corporal Lorton), John Banks (Private Higson/Hari Sunil/Captain Hertford/Constable Lee), Alex Mallinson (Private Smith/The Manchester Mangler/Alf), Duncan Wisbey (Doctor Sacker/Bulgar), Stephen Thorne (The Club Secretary), Peter Silverleaf (Reginald Colvile/Resurrection Joe), Janet Henfrey (Mrs Vanguard), Lex Shrapnel (Toby), John Ainsworth (The Landlord), Matt Steer (Smitty), Alex Lowe (Sergeant Lange Ragamuffin).

Four brand new stories featuring the investigators of infernal incidents, in one box set. 2.1 Litefoot and Sanders (written by Justin Richards and featuring Chloe Howman). Women are being killed on the streets of London, and the evidence points to it being the work of a vicious vampire. It's now a case for Litefoot and Sanders - but Henry Gordon Jago isn't going to go away quietly...2.2 The Necropolis Express (written by Mark Morris and featuring Vernon Dobtcheff). Strange things are happening in the pauper's graveyard at Charnel's End. There is a mysterious light emanating from the church, and something deadly beneath the ground itself. Someone from Litefoot's past has come back to haunt him...2.3 The Theatre of Dreams (written by Jonathan Morris and featuring Duncan Wisbey, Jennie Stoller and Alex Mallinson). "Roll up gentlemen and ladies, roll up! Welcome to Deuteronomy's Theatre De Fantasie, the show where your dreams come true!" Henry Gordon Jago believes he has made a killer booking for the New Regency Theatre. Unfortunately, he is absolutely correct...2.4 The Ruthven Inheritance (written by Andy Lane and featuring Duncan Wisbey and Simon Williams). The pathology skills of Professor Litefoot and Dr Sacker are called upon by Lord Ruthven, who asks them to catalogue a cache of bones beneath his country estate. And so begins the endgame...as a plan long laid come to its glorious fruition.
