Overview

Four more thrilling soundtrack adventures from the early days of Doctor Who, featuring serials lost from the TV archive.

The pictures may be lost, but each of these stories survives as a soundtrack recording. Remastered, and with additional linking narration, they can be enjoyed once more.

In The Daleks' Master Plan, the Daleks have stolen the Time Destructor, and are threatening to destroy the fabric of Time itself. Pursued across Time and Space, the TARDIS crew are in grave danger.

In The Massacre, the TARDIS materializes in Paris, 1572, a time of danger and religious strife. When Steven witnesses an execution, he believes the Doctor has been executed in front of his eyes.

In The Celestial Toymaker, the travelers arrive in the domain of the Toymaker, where failure to win a series of games could result in them becoming playthings for eternity.

In The Savages, the TARDIS arrives on a distant and seemingly idyllic world, but the Doctor, Steven and Dodo discovers that it hides a terrible secret.

Special linking narration is provided by Peter Purves, who also recalls his time making the original episodes in a bonus interview. Also included is an edition of BBC Radio's Archive on 4 from 2009.

About the Author

Terry Nation attempted to launch a career in stand-up comedy, but soon found he lacked performing skills, and hearing that a local agency was looking for comedy scriptwriters he decided to take his material to them. Associated London Scripts liked his work, and hired him to write All My Eye And Kitty Blewitt. This launched his writing career, and throughout the 1950s he produced more than 200 scripts for comedians such as Terry Scott, Eric Sykes, Harry Worth, and Frankie Howerd. His TV breakthrough came in 1963, when he wrote several episodes for Tony Hancock's series Hancock. The same year, he was asked to write the second serial for a newly-launched BBC science fiction series, Doctor Who, and the Daleks were born. He went on to write several more Dalek stories for Doctor Who, including The Dalek Invasion of Earth, The Chase, The Daleks' Master Plan, and Genesis of the Daleks, and also penned two non-Dalek episodes, The Keys of Marinus and The Android Invasion. As well as Doctor Who, Terry Nation's TV work also includes The Saint, Department S, The Persuaders, and The Avengers.
