Peri faces deadly feline robots during a race to the sun in an original adventure for the Sixth Doctor, read by Nicola Bryant
The TARDIS lands aboard the Sun God, a vast spaceship carrying executives from a powerful 35th Century energy company. Peri is menaced by deadly cat-like robots, whilst the Doctor discovers that Spalding Revere, the company's founder, has set the ship on course for the heart of a sun.

The first original BBC Audio adventure for the Eighth Doctor is here, set in Victorian Edinburgh, and read by Dan Starkey
It's the late 1890s, and newspaper journalist James MacFarlane is on the trail of a supernatural entity. He's joined in his investigations by a mysterious stranger, who calls himself the Doctor and professes to know a lot about vampires. As gangs of locals gather zombie-like on the city's streets, James and the Doctor find themselves on a dangerous trail to find the truth.
Dan Starkey (who plays the Sontaran Strax) reads this original debut Eighth Doctor adventure.
OUT IN NOVEMBER 2019:
Terry Molloy, who played Davros, reads Revelation of the Daleks, a classic Sixth Doctor versus the Daleks story written by Eric Saward
The Doctor and Peri land on the planet Necros to visit the funerary home Tranquil Repose – where the dead are interred and the near-dead placed in suspended animation until such time as their conditions can be cured. But the Great Healer of Tranquil Repose is far from benign. Under his command, Daleks guard the catacombs where sickening experiments are conducted on human bodies. The new life he offers the dying comes at a terrible cost – and the Doctor and Peri are being lured into a trap that will change them forever.
Terry Molloy brings this classic Doctor Who television story to life, with authentic Dalek voices provided by Nicholas Briggs.
The classic television story for the Sixth Doctor, Vengeance on Varos, becomes an exciting audio adaptation written by Phillip Martin
The TARDIS has stalled in mid-flight, and it is only on the planet Varos that the Doctor can find the precious Zeiton-7 ore he needs to continue his travels through time and space.Arriving on the planet, he saves the rebel Jondar from execution and incurs the wrath of Sil, the sadistic representative of the Galatron Mining Corporation on Varos. The hunt is on for the Doctor and his rebel friends.
Martin Jarvis, who originally starred in Vengeance on Varos, narrates this thrilling novelization of the classic TV adventure.
Jon Culshaw, Frazer Hines, Dan Starkey, Louise Jameson and Nicola Bryant read a selection of exuberant and colourful tales from the legendary Doctor Who Annual
Six Doctors and companions have very different adventures in this collection of stories. The First Doctor faces a punishing journey in an alien landscape, whilst the Second Doctor, Jamie and Victoria land somewhere where the boundaries of time are blurred. The Third Doctor and Jo encounter childhood stories, then the Fourth Doctor and Leela face off against crocodiles. The Fifth Doctor, Tegan and Turlough join forces with the Brigadier, and the Sixth Doctor and Peri explore uncomfortable truths in an idyllic world…
