Peter Davison reads this classic novelisation of a Fifth Doctor TV adventure featuring an old enemy. The TARDIS arrives at Heathrow Airport at a moment of crisis: a Concorde aeroplane has inexplicably vanished while in flight. The Doctor, Tegan and Nyssa join the crew of a second Concorde that sets out to simulate the fateful journey of the missing supersonic jet...but an old enemy in disguise is lurking at their destination. Seeing is believing, they say - but the Doctor and his friends realise that it just isn't that simple... Peter Davison - the Fifth Doctor himself - reads Peter Grimwade's own novelisation of his 1982 TV adventure.Show more
The complete BBC Radio collection bringing together two full-cast dramatisations of Douglas Adams's Dirk Gently novels. In Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency Dirk Gently has an unshakeable belief in the interconnectedness of all things, but his Holistic Detective Agency mainly succeeds in tracking down missing cats for old ladies. Then Dirk stumbles upon an old friend behaving bizarrely - and he's drawn into a four-billion-year-old mystery that must be solved if the human race is to avoid immediate extinction. In The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul Harry Enfield exuberantly returns as Dirk Gently, who, fallen on hard times and dressed as a gypsy woman, is using his irritatingly accurate clairvoyant powers to read palms. He is saved when a frantic client turns up with a ludicrous story about being stalked by a goblin waving a contract accompanied by a hairy, green-eyed, scythe-wielding monster. When Detective Superintendent Gilks decides a headless body found in a sealed room is the result of a particularly irritating suicide, Dirk is plunged into a mystery where the interconnectedness of all things is tested to the limit... Starring Harry Enfield as Dirk Gently along with Billy Boyd, Olivia Coleman, Andrew Sachs and Jim Carter. Guest stars include Peter Davison (Doctor Who), Jan Ravens (Dead Ringers), Philip Jackson (Poirot), John Fortune (Bremner, Bird & Fortune), Morwenna Banks (Absolutely) and Stephen Moore (The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy).Show more
All ten series of the BBC Radio 4 comedy drama set in a small junior school 'The Sistine Chapel of radio drama'' - The Times Running for ten series between 1985 and 1988 (with a sequel, King Street Junior Revisited, airing from 2002-2005), this hugely popular school-based sitcom was one of the BBC's most successful radio programmes. Created by award-winning writer Jim Eldridge, it follows the headmaster and staff of an inner-city primary as they deal with unruly pupils, problem parents, school governors and OFSTED inspectors. From Parents' Evening to the PTA, and from supply teachers to staff room squabbles, every day brings fresh challenges for headmaster Mr Beeston. Among the problems facing him are a flu epidemic, a shortage of computers, a phantom prune thief and a mysterious graffiti artist - and there's trouble in store when in comes to sex education, school trips and Sports Day. Meanwhile, idealistic newcomers Mr Brown and Mr Sims learn some lessons about teaching, and their battle-scarred colleagues vie for promotion - or look forward to retirement. And as each new term rolls around at King Street Junior, they all prepare to shape the minds of a brand new generation... Peter Davison stars as Eric Brown, Karl Howman as Philip Sims and James Grout as Mr Beeston, with guest stars including John Craven and Michaela Strachan as themselves. Created by Jim Eldridge Written by Jim Eldridge, Paul Copley, Richard Stoneman, Ivan Shakespeare, Dave Single and Martin Davies Produced by John Fawcett Wilson Violinist: Sarah Hallam Pianist: Max HarrisShow more

On top of it all, Sarah considers a third child. Perhaps a holiday will do? Written by son and father team Andy and Eric Merriman (best known for 'Beyond Our Ken'), the series was inspired by Andy's own four-year-old daughter, Sarah.Show more
Peter Davison reads this exciting novelisation of the explosive final adventure for the Fifth Doctor. From the moment they land on the planet Androzani Minor, everything goes wrong for the Doctor and his new young companion, Peri. They become involved in the struggle between brutal gun-runners, ruthless Federation troops, and the hideously mutilated Sharaz Jek, who lurks in the depths of the caves with his android army. Key to the struggle is spectrox, the most valuable substance in the universe. Suitably processed, spectrox is an elixir of life, but in its raw state it is a deadly poison - a fact which will cost the Doctor another of his Time Lord lives... Peter Davison, who portrayed the Fifth Doctor in the hit BBC TV series, reads Terrance Dicks's novelisation of the original serial by Robert Holmes, frequently named as one of the best adventures of the original Doctor Who series.Show more
