Publisher's Summary

Two lost stories from the Fourth Doctor's era:

The Foe from the Future. Written by Robert Banks Stewart, adapted by John Dorney. The Grange is haunted, so they say. This stately home in the depths of Devon has been the site of many an apparition. And now people are turning up dead. The ghosts are wild in the forest. But the Doctor doesn't believe in ghosts.

The Tardis follows a twist in the vortex to the village of Staffham in 1977 and discovers something is very wrong with time. But spectral highwaymen and cavaliers are the least of the Doctor's worries. For the Grange is owned by the sinister Jalnik, and Jalnik has a scheme 2,000 years in the making. Only the Doctor and Leela stand between him and the destruction of history itself. It's the biggest adventure of their lives - but do they have the time?

The Valley of Death. Written by Philip Hinchcliffe, adapted by Jonathan Morris. A century after his great-grandfather, Cornelius, vanished in the Amazon rainforest, Edward Perkins is journeying to the depths of the jungle to find out what became of his ancestor's lost expedition. Intrigued by what appears to be a description of a crashed spacecraft in the diaries of that first voyage, the Doctor and Leela join him on his quest. But when their plane runs into trouble and ends up crash-landing, everyone gets more than they bargained for.

The jungle is filled with giant creatures and angry tribesmen, all ready to attack. But in the famed lost city of the Maygor tribe, something far, far worse is lurking. Something with an offer to make to mankind. Who are the Lurons, and can they be trusted? Will the Doctor defeat the plans of the malevolent Godrin, or will he become just another victim of the legendary Valley of Death?

Directed by Ken Bentley.

What a treat! The Doctor and Leela

There are two stories included and I liked both, but really loved the second one. I have listened to over 200 full-cast recordings by this wonderful company (Big Finish -- look them up for a lot more featuring Doctors 4-8, the War Doctor and now also Doctor 10!). I've never heard a bad story from them. This recording features the marvelous Tom Baker and Louise Jameson as Leela. It has all the flavor of 1970's Doctor Who. It's also fun to listen to the special features at the end. The actors all clearly adore Tom Baker and he loves recording these stories. It's very touching to hear him talk about how much he loves it. One also gets the bonus of often hearing actors from current TV or movies in these productions. I often recognize voices and look up the cast through the company's site and IMDB.

Oh How I Have Missed Tom Baker!!

Wow, this is PERFECT! Classic Tom Baker as the 4th Doctor, and the wonderful Leela as his Companion....great villains, great dialogue, great incidental characters, exciting, funny...I have already listened to the first story TWICE!!!! Absolutely LOVE this...one of my favorite Audiobooks yet, and I have listened to a lot of wonderful ones!

If your Doctor wears a scarf you need this to make you whole....

Now if they could only finish Shada properly, an audio play would work just fine. Anyway these 2 story are both great and if Tom Baker was, ie IS your Doctor buy and listen to these, Google it if you don't believe me.

Nice Throwback

Amazing how much better this is than most of the Big Finish.range, attributable to its origins as an original 4th Doctor series story as well of course to the participation of Tom Baker and Louise Jameson. Has the energy of the originals too, though one story is hampered by the truly terrible American accent of one of the actors, par for the Big Finish course.

Also know that 90 minutes of the running time is taken up by intermittently interesting bonus material. Very self-congratulatory bit at least here not equal to or surpassing the actual story, which is true with so many of these Big Finish books.

I also wish they'd fix the bumps where chapters obviously finish. That's just sloppy and these aren't inexpensive. We deserve better.

Lost Treasures!

I thought the episode "The Valley of Death" was a great story! I'm sorry I never got to see either of these episodes and SO glad I was able to hear them on Audible!

Love to hear Tom Baker narrate an audiobook

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Anyone interested in Dr Who, and especially the classic episodes will enjoy this book narrated by the doctor himself.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Both the Dr of course and Leela

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Time travel and insects... who knew?

It is not the entire box set, but is still good.

I thought I was a deal too good to be true and it was. Don't get me wrong, the stories are great and it's wonderful to hear Tom Baker again, but based on the description Audible has written, I thought I was getting the box set. Its only a collection of stories and "behind the scenes" snippets after each one. Use your credit to purchase it. Don't buy it.

I’ve loved this audio book very much!!!

This audio book is fascinating and almost better than the show or movies because all of the images are up to the imagination of its listeners! I’m on vacation at the moment and I can’t wait to bring this home to my significant other who introduced me to the Doctor! He loves the series and Tom Baker (who has the most audiobooks here) is his favorite Doctor.
I really look forward to sharing this with my man and telling all of my friends about how wonderful these audiobooks are!

4th Doctor and Leela are back

Great nostalgia potential met. Loved the interviews as well. If you are a 4th Doctor fan you will enjoy.

Big Finish! Big Entertainment!!

If like me Tom Bakers your Doctor, then trust me you won't be disappointed. Memories of Saturday teatime 1977 will come flooding back.

Old stories told anew.

I must be stuck in a time eddie, because my ears are definitely in 1977 all over again. If you’ve ever watched classic doctor who then these two stories will not fail to enthrall you.

Fantastic! Great stories. Would like more like this.
Like the fact you get to keep the stories after you have listened to them.

Good fun

A couple of good Tom Baker Doctor Who stories that never got made. The first is rather gory for me, but in the spirit of the show.

The extras, which seem to go on forever, are dull and little more than a long extended advert for Big Finish.

Worth a credit for Tom Baker, if - like me - you are a fan.

Extras

The two stories are written well and performed superbly (Tom Baker gives as good if not better performance than he did in the original tv series).
My only gripe is about all the long winded (often repeatedly using the same or parts of the same ) extras.
