A brand new audio bundle of three Doctor Who stories to celebrate the 60th anniversary.
1960s – Imaginary Friends by Jacqueline Rayner
It’s Christmas, 1963, when nine-year-old Gerald starts dreaming of strange worlds and monsters
His parents think it’s harmless at first. But Gerald is convinced it’s real – his dreams of Daleks and cavemen and insects as big as a person.
Desperate for help, what Gerald’s family really need, right now, is a Doctor.
1970s – The Cradle by Tasha Suri
It is London, 1978, and tensions are high. Seema and her family are struggling, but she has learnt to keep her head down, not create trouble.
That is until she and her two friends, Terrence and Inderjit, decide to join an anti-National Front protest in the East End.
And when trouble does inevitably find them, the friends are saved by the appearance of a mysterious, seemingly broken-down bus.
But inside this bus it is like nothing any of them have ever seen. It is a journey through the most wonderful landscapes, where visions of hopes and dreams envelop the lost group.
Who – or what – is this strange place? The tall, grumpy man might know the answers, but then he also seems just as confused as they are…
1980s – The Self-Made Man by Mark Griffiths
In a sprawling, run-down housing estate in south London, a man returning from a night out in the West End finds himself pursued by a strange hooded figure.
So naturally when The Doctor and Romana arrive in the TARDIS the next day, they find themselves in the middle of a crime scene.
But when child genius Matthew Pickles – inventor of a hugely popular handheld videogame – arrives to help them crack the case, they discover there is more to this than meets the eye.
Someone has been messing with technology that’s not of this earth, blurring the lines between human… and cyber. And it looks like they’re out for revenge.
In a world on the brink of gadgets and gismos and dangerous tech, the pair must uncover the killer, before they strike again.
