David Troughton reads the novelisation of The Wheel In Space, featuring the Cybermen

When the TARIDS materialises inside a rocket, the Doctor and Jamie are alarmed by the presence of a hostile Servo-Robot. They discover that the rocket is drifting in orbit of a giant space station – the Wheel in Space.

Suspecting the worst, the Doctor is still horrified to find the deadly Cybermen in control. What evil plan are they plotting? Who or what are the Cybermats? Can the Doctor trust anyone on board to help him stop the Wheel as it spins relentlessly in space?

David Troughton, who played several roles in the BBC TV series, reads Terrance Dicks’ novelisation of a 1968 serial by David Whitaker – with authentic Cyber voices by Nicholas Briggs.

Stephanie Cole reads a brand new story featuring the Doctor's trusty car, Bessie.

It's been many years since a certain yellow Edwardian roadster was a key member of personnel at UNIT. As the Doctor's personal transport, Bessie was on the spot for many of his Earthbound adventures. Those were the glory days, when Bessie stood side by side with the Doctor, the Brigadier, Captain Yates, and a parade of plucky young assistants.

Yet Bessie's remarkable life began decades earlier, at the dawn of a new century, and it has continued beyond the UNIT years. Indomitably she lives to tell the tale, and is only too keen to do so. Thankfully her new owner, kind Mr Foreman, has time enough to listen to her story.

But a serpent lurks in the shadows of the scrapyard. Someone else would like to acquire Bessie - seemingly at any price. After all, she holds a great deal of information about the Doctor...

Stephanie Cole brings Bessie to life in this intriguing and heartwarming tale from Paul Magrs.
