We complete the April releases today with the last two Doctor Who stories of the month: Moonflesh and The Evil One.
Doctor Who: Moonflesh begins an exciting new trilogy of stories starring Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor and Sarah Sutton as his companion Nyssa - with added wildlife!
One wouldn't normally expect to find elephants, gorillas and rhinoceroses roaming free in Suffolk in the year 1911. One wouldn't normally expect to find an extra-dimensional police box at the same time/space location either. Two aliens, named the Doctor and Nyssa, exit said box, only to find themselves pursued by a hungry lioness – for they've landed in the private hunting grounds of the famous explorer Nathaniel Whitlock, who's brought together a motley group of friends and acquaintances for a weekend's shooting.
But one of Whitlock's guests isn't all they seem. One of them wants the secrets of the Moonflesh, the mystic mineral looked after by Whitlock's retainer, a Native American known as Silver Crow. Because the Moonflesh is reputed to have the power to call down spirits from another realm…
…and soon, the hunters will become the hunted.
Doctor Who: The Evil One continues our third series of Fourth Doctor Adventures and stars Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor and Louise Jameson as Leela. But that's not all, because this time they're once again up against the evil that is the Master, played once again by Geoffrey Beevers!
The TARDIS lands in the cargo hold of luxury space cruiser the Moray Rose. The crew and passengers are missing. The agents of Inter-Galaxy Insurance are determined to find out what’s happened and the shadowy Interplanetary Police Inspector Efendi is showing a very particular interest.
Caught up in all this, the Doctor and Leela find themselves facing a horde of metal mantis-like aliens. But throughout it all, Leela is haunted by terrible nightmares and the dawning realization that everything she knows about her life is a lie.
