Whilst sightseeing in Paris, the Doctor and Romana notice a series of unexplained temporal disturbances. When a visit to the Louvre lands them in hot water, they realise that a certain Count Scarlioni knows more about advanced technology than a 20th-century Parisian should. With British detective Duggan in tow, the time travellers become embroiled in an audacious plot to steal the Mona Lisa and sell it on the open market. This is limited to 3000 units worldwide.

    Was very tempted by this when I visited my local record store, starting to regret not picking it up

    Good to see new merchandise being released with the classic Doctor Who logo. I thought everything new had to have the ‘new’ and ‘latest’ Doctor Who logo. I was almost thinking that the BBC didn’t want to use the old logo and subsequently banned it’s use.

      Only because the artwork was done before the logo change

    …hot on the heels of the Target novelisation. Who’d have thought that after 39 years we’d get two new iterations of this story in less than a month.

    I’ve just noticed what they’ve done with Romana’s arms/sleeve there – very clever! (they’ve blended a photo of Lalla Ward in costume with the Mona Lisa itself)
