The Doctor Who Audio Annual Multi-Doctor stories Audio CD

Available to order from www.amazon.co.uk

For two decades, from the mid-1960s to the mid-1980s, every fan of the Doctor hoped to find The Doctor Who Annual in their Christmas stocking. Larger than life and twice as colourful, the stories within were exuberant ― and often charmingly naive ― in their take on ‘the children’s own programme which adults adore’.

Here, for the first time on audio, Peter Purves (Steven), Anneke Wills (Polly), Geoffrey Beevers (the Master), Matthew Waterhouse (Adric) and Nicola Bryant (Peri) read a selection of these colourful and energetic tales.

In The Sons of Grekk, the First Doctor is held prisoner in a brutal, otherworldly society. The King of Golden Death finds that the Second Doctor, Polly and Ben have materialised inside an Ancient Egyptian pyramid.

The Third Doctor, Jo and the Brigadier confront a familiar adversary in Dark Intruders, whilst in Conundrum the Fourth Doctor, Adric and K9 experience warped physics in the corridors of the TARDIS. FacingThe Penalty, a delirious Fifth Doctor finds old friends and adversaries ganging up on him, and the Sixth Doctor and Peri plunge into a dangerous period of British history in The Real Hereward.

Also included are two vintage essays on the character of our favourite Time Lord: Who is Doctor Who? from 1966 and The Phoenix in the TARDIS from 1968.

Take a nostalgic journey through time with these vintage Doctor Who tales.

    This should be good! Even though the stories themselves are a bit……well, rubbish!

    Got to add, I really wish they would have more traditional style artwork more suited to the original annuals.

    Although the fact that they have kept the original ‘ANNUAL’ font is cool. But part of me wants to see ‘Dr Who’ rather than ‘DOCTOR WHO’ being used. But all the same a very welcome release.

    As a child of the 70’s and 80’s, this is a great release. I’m amazed and grateful something like this is being released.

    Scraping the barrel, aren’t they? Seems pointless when the barrel doesn’t need scraping – we still haven’t had the Series 9 soundtrack.

      Typical from this one, a rather self-entitled post, I think.
      I bet he’d buy it if Tennant or Whittaker read them.
