Peter Purves reads this gripping classic novelisation of a TV adventure featuring the First Doctor and his companions Steven and Dodo. Landing on a distant planet, the Doctor confidently announces to his companions that the TARDIS has brought them to an age of great advancement, peace and prosperity.

But the security of the city is founded on one deadly and appalling secret. Soon the Doctor and his friends discover that is not only outside the city walls that savages dwell... Peter Purves, who played Steven in the BBC TV series, reads Ian Stuart Black's complete and unabridged novelisation, first published by Target Books in 1986.

Doctor Who: The Savages (TV Soundtrack)

Author: Ian Stuart Black Narrator: , Peter Purves, William Hartnell Release Date: 01/06/2013

'We have reached the distant horizon of an age of peace and prosperity!' When the TARDIS materialises on an alien planet, the Doctor insists that he and his companions have arrived in the far future. Steven and Dodo think otherwise, however, after they encounter a band of cave-dwelling primitives who are terrified of strangers. The travellers discover that the planet's population is divided into two castes, and that the professed idyll of the Elders - who inhabit a technologically advanced city - seems oddly dependent upon the unsophisticated Savages. Whilst the Elders' leader, Jano, welcomes the Doctor into their society, Dodo stumbles upon a dark secret at the heart of the community. The truth behind the Elders' great knowledge is eventually revealed, and the Doctor sees it as his duty to end a terrible case of exploitation. Yet Jano has plans of his own for the Doctor... With the Doctor's faithful companion Stven discovering that events on this planet will irrevocably shape his destiny, The Savages marks the final appearance in the programme of Peter Purves, who also provides the linking narration for this release.
