Five exciting novelisations set in Earth's past history, featuring the Doctor and his companions. In Doctor Who - The Gunfighters the TARDIS arrives in the heart of the Old Wild West, just as Wyatt Earp's in town. In Doctor Who - The Highlanders the scene is the Battle of Culloden, 1746, where the Scots are fighting the English. In Doctor Who and the War Games the Doctor and friends seem to arrive in the trenches of the First World War, but appearances can be deceptive. Doctor Who and the Talons of Weng-Chiang takes the Doctor and Leela to Victorian London, and a battle with a foe from the future. Finally, in Doctor Who - Black Orchid, the Fifth Doctor and friends are entertained at a 1920s country house - where murder is afoot. Shane Rimmer, Anneke Wills, David Troughton, Christopher Benjamin and Michael Cochrane are the readers of these five classic stories, first published as Target Books paperbacks. Running time: 21 hours 40 mins approx. (P) 2020 BBC Studios Distribution Ltd © 2020 BBC Studios Distribution Ltd Cover illustration by John GearyShow more
An unabridged reading of an exciting novelisation, based on a TV adventure featuring the Fifth Doctor, as played by Peter Davison. It is 4 March 1215, and the TARDIS materialises in England during a jousting match held in the presence of King John. It soon becomes apparent to the Doctor that something is very wrong. Why does John express no fear or surprise at the time travellers' sudden appearance, and indeed welcome them as the King's Demons? And what is the true identity of Sir Gilles, the King's Champion? Very soon the Doctor finds himself involved in a fiendish plan to alter the course of world history, by one of his oldest and deadliest enemies. Duration: 5 hours approx.Show more
John Leeson reads this exciting novelisation of the 1981 spin-off TV adventure for two popular Doctor Who characters. In the sleepy village of Hazelbury Abbas the Winter Solstice is fast drawing near. It is a time of deep mystery and ancient evil. Sarah Jane Smith, journalist and former companion to the Doctor, comes to the village to write her new book. For company she has Brendan, the young ward of Sarah's missing Aunt Lavinia. Then Brendan too disappears, possibly kidnapped by practitioners of Black Magic. Is he to be sacrificed to the goddess Hecate on the Solstice? Sarah is not alone in her search for Brendan, for the Doctor has sent her a very special companion: a robotic dog by the name of K9... John Leeson, who provided K9's voice in the original BBC TV serial, reads Terence Dudley's own novelisation of his 1981 teleplay. Duration: 6 hours approx.Show more
On a lazy June afternoon in 1925 the TARDIS materialises at the tiny railway station of Cranleigh Halt. Warmly welcomed by the local gentry, the time-travellers look forward to a well deserved rest from their adventures. After a stunning performance at a friendly cricket match, the Doctor, together with Tegan, Adric and Nyssa, is invited to a splendid masked ball by Lady Cranleigh and her son, Charles. But a dark menace haunts the secret corridors of Cranleigh Hall. And before the ball is over, the quiet summer will be shattered by the shocking discovery of a brutal murder. Michael Cochrane, who played Charles Cranleigh in the original TV serial ‘Black Orchid’, reads Terence Dudley’s complete and unabridged novelisation, first published by Target Books in 1986. ‘BBC Audiobooks has chosen well with its books and has taken the right approach with its readers... they benefit from new music and sound effects’ - Doctor Who Magazine.Show more
