The TARDIS lands in the capital city of a planet deep in the midst of an endless winter. The population are celebrating a new crop of candidates winning roles at the scientific research centre. Those who go there dedicate their lives to continued service and are rarely, if ever, seen again. Not everyone is happy to see them leave.
As The Doctor, Steven and Vicki watch, the city leader – Majorian – invites onto the stage in front of the happy crowd their ‘friend who made all this possible’… and a Dalek appears.
The people of this planet seem to be living in perfect harmony with The Doctor’s old enemies. But the TARDIS crew know this cannot be true. So what’s really going on?

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.”
