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.

We fall not in love but in lust . . . Lust, in all its myriad forms, consumes us. What won't we do to achieve our heart's desire?

Collected together for the first time, stories include Madame Rosette, Neck, Georgy Porgy, The Visitor, The Last Act, The Great Switcheroo, Bitch, Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life, The Ratcatcher and Nunc Dimittis. Dahl understood our deepest secrets, desires and fears and Lust is one of four books - the rest being Madness, Cruelty and Deception - that explore our hidden selves.Show more
The unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Great Switcheroo, a short, sharp story from Roald Dahl, the master of the twist in the tale. Read by the actor Shane Rimmer. In The Great Switcheroo, Roald Dahl, one of the world's favourite authors, tells a subversive, saucy story of lust and desire. Here, two husbands secretly agree to a night of passion - with each other's wives . . . The Great Switcheroo is taken from the short story collection Switch Bitch, which includes three other black comedies which capture the ins and outs, highs and lows of sex. This story is also available as a Penguin ebook. Roald Dahl, the brilliant and worldwide acclaimed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and many more classics for children, also wrote scores of short stories for adults. These delightfully disturbing tales have often been filmed and were most recently the inspiration for the West End play, Roald Dahl's Twisted Tales by Jeremy Dyson. Roald Dahl's stories continue to make readers shiver today. Shane Rimmer's film work includes: Dark Shadows, Batman Begins, Out of Africa, Dr Strangelove. His television work includes: Dr Who, The Persuaders, Space 1999 and the voice of Scott Tracy in Thunderbirds.Show more
