black_archive_marco_polo.jpg ? In Stock £6.99

Category: Black Archive, The

The Black Archive – a series of book-length looks at single Doctor Who stories from 1963 to the present day.

 

‘This is the Plain of Pamir, known to those who travel to Cathay as the Roof of the World.’

 

Marco Polo (1964) reflects a cultural change reshaping TV’s role as historian, placing the interpretation of history in the viewers’ hands by recruiting them as travellers in Polo’s caravan.

 

Examining camera treatments and mobility, adaptive and remedial interventions, public and book history, cultural assumptions and memories, this book celebrates the work of collaborators, copyists, studio personnel and fans in reconstructing this most famous and earliest of missing Doctor Who stories.

Category: BBC Radio Collection Classic Soundtracks

Six more thrilling stories of adventure in Time and Space from the original Doctor Who Annuals.

Larger than life and twice as colourful, from the 1960s to the 1980s the stories within the Doctor Who Annual were exuberant and charmingly naive. Now, in this second audio volume, Peter Purves (Steven), Anneke Wills (Polly), Geoffrey Beevers (the Master), Matthew Waterhouse (Adric) and Nicola Bryant (Peri) read another selection of these colourful and energetic tales, with atmospheric sound design.

 

In Peril in Mechanistria, the First Doctor finds primitive humans enslaved to machines in a world of metal. The Second Doctor must rescue Ben in The Sour Note, whilst in Scorched Earth the Third Doctor and Sarah are challenged by a virulent virus on Varium III. The Fourth Doctor has Double Trouble after he and his companions return to UNIT HQ, and then the Fifth Doctor and Adric visit a Planet of Fear. Finally, in The Radio Waves, the Master schemes to turn Londoners against politicians and the Royal Family. Can the Sixth Doctor and Peri stop him?

 

Also included from 1966 is The Equations of Doctor Who, a vintage essay about the mysteries of the Doctor and his TARDIS.

 

Take a nostalgic journey through time with these vintage Doctor Who tales. Duration: 2 hours 20 mins approx.

LOST EPISODE REDISCOVERED AFTER 55 YEARS AND AVALIABLE ON DVD FOR THE FIRST TIME

 

TUNNEL OF FEAR is the twentieth episode of the first series of the 1960s cult British spy-fi television series The Avengers, starring Ian Hendry, Patrick Macnee and Ingrid Hafner and was broadcast by ABC Television on 5 August 1961. It’s one of only three known complete season 1 episodes to have survived since the original broadcast. Lost for 55 years, the episode came to light in a private film collection in 2016 and was recovered by the British television preservation group Kaleidoscope.

 

Now for the first time ever Avengers fans will be able to own the episode its entirety on DVD with a host of extra content.

 

Harry Black, an escaped convict, bursts into Dr David Keel’s surgery wounded. He claims to have been framed for a crime that he did not commit – and begs the doctor not to hand him over to the police. Steed arrives and ascertains that Black has links to Southend-on-Sea which might well tie in with an investigation currently being undertaken by his department. They are aware that top government secrets are being leaked from a fun fair in Southend, and Black’s story, if true, could possibly lead them to the source of the operation.

 

Can Steed and Keel bring down the operation, prove Harry’s innocence and get out of Southend with their lives.

DWM-524.jpg ? In Stock £5.99

Category: Doctor Who Magazine

The new issue of Doctor Who is out this week and the cover has been revealed. It’s a cover that should appeal to fans of Doctor Who young and old. It traverses both eras of Doctor Who in much the same way as what the cover is in aid of. The cover concerns itself with the new set of Target novels.

 

The Target novels hold a nostalgic place in the heart of any classic era Who fan. These Target novels mostly concern themselves with reproducing the new era of Who. It features novelisations of Rose, The Christmas Invasion, Day of the Doctor and Twice Upon a Time. The fifth book in the collection is City of Death.

 

The cover features the four Doctors of the modern era from the 9th to the 12th backed by the Target logo. The issue itself has interviews with former showrunners Russell T Davies and Steven Moffat regarding their Target adaptations Rose and Day of the Doctor, and teasingly ‘the next chapter for Doctor Who’s best-loved books’.
