Classic Doctor Who Annual stories for audio release

A collection of stories originally published in Doctor Who Annuals from the 1960s through to the 1980s are to be made available on audio for the first time.

The Doctor Who Audio Annual, which will be released just in time for Christmas, will include stories featuring the first six incarnations of the Doctor, read by Peter Purves (Steven), Anneke Wills (Polly), Geoffrey Beevers (The Master), Matthew Waterhouse (Adric), and Nicola Bryant (Peri).

The audio annual is set to include the following stories:

  • The Sons of Grekk: The First Doctor is held prisoner in a brutal, otherworldly society. 
  • The King of Golden Death: The Second Doctor, Polly and Ben have materialised inside an Ancient Egyptian pyramid. 
  • Dark Intruders: The Third Doctor, Jo and the Brigadier confront a familiar adversary.
  • Conundrum: The Fourth Doctor, Adric and K9 experience warped physics in the corridors of the TARDIS. 
  • Facing The Penalty: A delirious Fifth Doctor finds old friends and adversaries ganging up on him.
  • The Real Hereward: The Sixth Doctor and Peri plunge into a dangerous period of British history.

Also included on the upcoming audio release are two vintage essays on the Doctor, Who is Doctor Who? and The Phoenix in the TARDIS, originally both published in Doctor Who annuals in the 1960s.

The Doctor Who Audio Annual is now available to pre-order on audio CD ahead of its release on December 7th 2017.
