The Crash of the UK-201
Maureen O’Brien (Vicki), Peter Purves (Steven Taylor)
You can’t change the past, every time traveller knows that. What’s done is done and cannot be unwritten. But what if it isn’t the past any more? What if it’s now the present?
The spaceship called the UK-201 was intended to fly to the Earth colony of Astra. But it never made it. Crashing on the planet Dido, a tragic chain of events was set in motion leading to the death of almost all of its crew and a massacre of the indigenous population.
The only survivor of these events was a young girl called Vicki. Rescued by the time traveller known as the Doctor, she’s been travelling in his ship for some time.
So when she suddenly wakes up in her cabin on the UK-201 again, without her friends, a few days before the accident, she’s faced with a stark choice… Can she stop the crash from happening? And if she can, should she?

More details have now been revealed on the fifth series of The Early Adventures starring Peter Purves and Maureen O’Brien. The Dalek Occupation of Winter, the first of four enthralling new adventures from the era of the First Doctor, was released last month and we can’t wait for more!
Three more adventures will soon be released for the First Doctor, Vicki and Steven in The Early Adventures Series 5.
Producer, David Richardson explains the series five master plan: “The plan for this run was to do a season of 1960s Doctor Who. Of course, we couldn’t manage 48 episodes’ worth – that would have been madness – but we’ve done 16 new episodes with Peter Purves and Maureen O’Brien that all follow on from each other and take the listener on a magical journey through time and space.”
