"There's something alien about that Tower." It's 1966, and London's brand new Post Office Tower looms over the Doctor and Dodo as they step from the TARDIS. When the Doctor meets Professor Brett, creator of a new, super-intelligent computer called WOTAN, he is intrigued to hear of a plan to link all the major computers around the world.
"Before the Terminator."
The Great Time War has raged for centuries, ravaging the universe. Scores of human colony planets are now overrun by Dalek occupation forces. A weary, angry Doctor leads a flotilla of Battle TARDISes against the Dalek stronghold but in the midst of the carnage, the Doctor's TARDIS crashes to a planet below: Moldox. As the Doctor is trapped in an apocalyptic landscape, Dalek patrols roam amongst the wreckage, rounding up the remaining civilians.
For the first time on audio, this is an unabridged reading of a classic Doctor Who novelisation, based on a serial from the original TV series. All is not well at the Wenley Moor underground atomic research station. There are unaccountable losses of power-output, nervous breakdowns amongst the staff, and then - a death!
"Quite different but interesting retelling."

An unabridged narration of an exciting classic novelisation, based on a TV adventure featuring the Second Doctor, as played by Patrick Troughton. Materialising in outer space, the Tardis is attached by a missile fired from the dark side of the moon. Back on Earth, the newly formed United Nations Intelligence Taskforce (UNIT), led by Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, is disturbed by a series of UFO sightings over Southern England.
Doctor Who is strangely concerned about Professor Horner's plan to cut open an ancient barrow near the peaceful English village of Devil's End; equally worried is Miss Hawthorne, the local white witch, who foretells a terrible disaster if he goes ahead. Determined that the Professor should is Mr Magister, the new vicar (in truth the Master) whose secret ceremonies are designed to conjure up from out of the barrow a horribly powerful being from a far-off planet.
Two lost stories from the Fourth Doctor's era: The Foe from the Future and The Valley of Death.
"What a treat! The Doctor and Leela"
Elisabeth Sladen presents this fascinating collection of interviews, behind-the-scenes set reports, and humorous sketches from BBC radio and television, all centred around the series featuring David Tennant as the good Doctor.
"Dr who at the bbc"
Geoffrey Beevers reads this exciting novelisation of a classic TV adventure for the Fourth Doctor. The Doctor is suddenly summoned to Gallifrey, the home of the Time Lords, where his ghastly hallucinations of the president’s assassination seem to turn into reality. When the Doctor is arrested for the murder, a hideous, dark, cowled figure is gleefully watching in the shadows. In a battle of minds, the Doctor faces renegade Time Lord the Master inside a nightmare world created by his old enemy’s imagination.
David Troughton reads four original stories set in different periods of the Siege of Trenzalore, featuring the Eleventh Doctor as played by Matt Smith. "Let it Snow" by Justin Richards; "An Apple a Day" by George Mann; "Strangers in the Outland" by Paul Finch; "The Dreaming" by Mark Morris. As it had been foretold, the armies of the Universe gathered at Trenzalore. Only one thing stood between the planet and destruction: the Doctor.
"It's all about battles"
The evil Master leered at the Doctor, and triumphantly pointed out of the cabin window. The many-tentacled Nestene monster - spearhead of the second Auton invasion of Earth - crouched beside the radio tower! Part crab, part spider, part octopus, its single huge eye blazed with alien intelligence and deadly hatred... Can the Doctor outwit his rival Time Lord, the Master, and save the Earth from the Nestene horror?
After billions of years of imprisonment, the vicious Sild have broken out of confinement. From a ruined world at the end of time, they make preparations to conquer the past, with the ultimate goal of rewriting history. But to achieve their aims they will need to enslave an intellect greater than their own... On Earth, UNIT is called in to investigate a mysterious incident on a North Sea drilling platform. The Doctor believes something is afoot, and no sooner has the investigation begun than something even stranger takes hold: the Brigadier is starting to forget about UNIT's highest-profile prisoner.
