Shada DVD

Shada Steelbook

"Delicate matter, slightly. It’s about a book…"

Chris Parsons is happily engrossed in studying post-graduate physics at Cambridge, when one day he finds an old book, sitting on a dusty shelf in an ageing professor’s library. Written in a language nobody can read and made of a paper that can’t be torn, this is no ordinary book. And when it enters his life, everything changes for young Chris Parsons.

Soon finding himself aboard an invisible space-ship, chased by monsters made of molten rock; aboard an alien prison on a distant planet and attacked by a horde of mind-control zombies. Chris also meets a strange man with a very long scarf who claims he can travel through time and space… in a police box.

It’s going to be a busy day for Chris Parsons.

An abandoned Doctor Who classic is brought to life. Starring Tom Baker and written by Douglas Adams, this is “Shada” for a modern audience, with footage upscaled to high definition, and incomplete footage now completed using high-quality animation.

Static

Static

Deep in the heart of nowhere, near a place called Abbey Marston, there’s a caravan site. The perfect place to get away from it all. Close by, there’s a stone circle they used for human sacrifice in olden times. A little further afield, there’s an old RAF research station, where they did hushhush things in the War.

There’s only one rule: the use of r adios, cassette recorders and portable televisions is strictly forbidden.

People come here to get away from it all, you see. No-one wants to hear the noise. No-one wants to hear the voices in the static…

No-one wants to hear the ghosts.

Directed By: Jamie Anderson

The Tenth Planet

The Tenth Planet

The Sergeant blinked again. Three lights were moving towards him through the murk of the blizzard. Even as he looked, the lights changed into three tall, straight figures, clad in silver-armoured suits, advancing across the ice with a slow, deliberate step. Horror-struck, the Sergeant reached for his gun, and a stream of bullets sprayed across the marching figures. BUT THEY CONTINUED MARCHING…

The CYBERMEN have arrived. The first invasion of Earth by this invincible, fearless race — and the last thrilling adventure of the first DOCTOR WHO.

The Early Adventures: The Wreck of the World
The Early Adventures: The Wreck of the World

Undergoing repairs in deep space, the TARDIS is caught in a collision with the huge, decaying wreck of a starship. Zoe, spacewalking, is separated from her companions in the crash, and the Doctor and Jamie wake to find the TARDIS fused to the side of the ship.

Venturing inside to rescue their friend, they discover that they are on board The World, the very first colony ship to leave Earth, lost mid-voyage under unknown circumstances.

And they are not alone. A terrible suspension chamber is filled with dead, withered human bodies, and a team of gun-toting astronauts are stalking the corridors. But a far greater threat lurks deep inside. The terrifying force responsible for the scuttling of the ship is active once more – and if it can’t be stopped, it won’t just be the end of this World. It’ll be the end of all of them.

Written By: Timothy X Atack

The Doctor Who Audio Annual
The Doctor Who Audio Annual

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. In Facing The 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.

Der Verlorene Flamme (The Lost Flame) (CD edition)

Der Verlorene Flamme (The Lost Flame) (CD edition)

Clare Higgins reads an exciting adventure for the Twelfth Doctor — as played on TV by Peter Capaldi — featuring the Sisterhood of Karn

The TARDIS make a bumpy landing on Karn, home of the legendary Sisterhood. There the Doctor encounters his old acquaintance Ohila, who denies all suggestions of involvement in recent unusual activities on Earth.

The Doctor, Alex and Brandon move on to the planet Escalupia, a medical hub for Earth’s First Great and Bountiful Human Empire. There they find squalid living conditions and sinister, hovering drones preying upon the populace. Why does everyone fear doctors, and who is the Angel they seem desperate to see?

When Alex is captured by the drones, the Doctor discovers that the slums are test labs for huge medical companies, with the humans as lab rats. Furthermore, the mysterious Angel is someone they’ve encountered before — someone well known to Ohila…

The stakes are high, as the travellers and the Sisterhood fight to end an injustice and escape with their lives.

Clare Higgins, who played Ohila in the TV stories The Magician’s Apprentice and Hell Bent, reads this climactic original audiobook by George Mann and Cavan Scott, based on the hit BBC TV series.

Chasing Shadows

Chasing Shadows

At 2:45 in the morning, on June the 2nd, 2006, pirates stormed an oil rig off the coast of Nigeria. Eight workers were taken hostage. Four days later, all of them walked free… but one returned a changed man.

Seven years later that man re-emerged onto the world stage.

And he’d brought treasure with him.

Much of our television history is lost forever. A victim of fashion and economics, British television allowed some of the finest programs in the world to be destroyed. Images of people walking on the moon and fledgling stars being born. Laughs and thrills and a new kind of pop music wafting in from the streets. Gradually, systematically, the videotapes that contained this precious heritage were erased. But in 1967 the BBC began wiping a program that would ultimately attract an especial brand of fascination.

A science fiction series called Doctor Who.

This is the story of a man named Philip Morris and his hunt for missing treasure. A story about his return to Africa to face his demons and the years he spent searching for lost television. It’s a story of the world as it used to be and what it’s become. A story of successes and failures, of politics, rivalry and money. It’s about the priceless things that Philip Morris found on his search and the impact his discoveries had upon a subculture.

This is a story about chasing shadows… and what happens when you catch them.
