the First Doctor Volume 3
Carole Ann Ford (Susan, Narrator), Mark Edel-Hunt (Virgil), Anneke Wills (Polly Wright), Elliot Chapman (Ben Jackson), David Warner (Allie)
Four new stories from the First Doctor’s era…
1. E is For… by Julian Richards
All is not right on the planet Malkus. Every day more and more monstrosities are born; people with powers and abilities far beyond those of normal men and women. They call these people “the Gifted.” And Susan has become one of them. Separated from her friends in a Police State dedicated to hunting people like her, Susan finds herself in a prison which has destroyed countless lives. And at its centre, at its heart, waiting, is the most dangerous monster of all…
2. The Crumbling Magician by Guy Adams
The TARDIS has crashed, its passengers in a bad way. The Doctor — not in the best of health anyway, his old body wearing somewhat thin — is in a coma, Ben unconscious. As for Polly, she’s been affected worst of all. Time is running in the wrong order for her and she’s seen the future, a future in which she’s mortally wounded. But will Continuity allow her to die?

Out for release next year in The Companion Chronicles are four new tales from the First Doctor’s era. But before that make sure you pick up The Companion Chronicles: the Second Doctor Volume Two before it goes up in price at the end of this month!
We return to travelling with the First Doctor in the next box set of The Companion Chronicles: the First Doctor Volume Three, with four adventures due for release next year. In the first adventure, Carole Ann Ford plays Susan in E is For… by Julian Richards, a story which flirts with superheroes and what happens when someone is ‘gifted’ – is that how everyone else sees them?
The second adventure looks at heroes in a different way as Guy Adams’s The Crumbling Magician finds Ben as a hero to an unexpected person in need, while an ailing Doctor gets a tempting offer of a new life – but at what cost…?
More details on the remaining two stories will be revealed soon – make sure you get your pre-orders in for next year!
And don’t forget the latest volume of The Companion Chronicles, with four stories from the time of the Second Doctor, came out last month to stellar reviews:
