More details on the return of the First Doctor are available today. The second volume of the First Doctor Adventures is to be released in July, with two new adventures for the original TARDIS team.
David Bradley (Broadchurch, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones) reprises his portrayal of the First Doctor in the First Doctor Adventures alongside his co-stars from the BBC TV Movie, An Adventure in Space and Time, with Claudia Grant playing Susan, Jemma Powell as Barbara and Jamie Glover as Ian.
With Volume One out on Christmas Day last year, we can’t wait to see what adventures the First Doctor, his granddaughter Susan, and companions Ian and Barbara get up to in Volume Two! The First Doctor is still trying to get the pair of teachers home, but there may be some adventurous distractions along the way…
2.1 The Invention of Death by John Dorney
After an experimental flight, the TARDIS crew find themselves on one of the strangest worlds they have ever encountered.
Alien life takes many forms, and on Ashtallah the travellers find all their preconceptions tested.
But this world is about to make a discovery – and it could mean the end of everything.
2.2 The Barbarians and the Samurai by Andrew Smith
In 19th Century Japan, Westerners are forbidden. So when the TARDIS arrives near Lord Mamoru’s castle, the daimyo’s Samurai are soon on their trail.
Uncovering secrets at court and treachery in the ranks, the Doctor and his friends are drawn into intrigue.
And, as a battle begins, they are caught in the middle.
In the spirit of the beginning seasons of Doctor Who, the First Doctor Adventures contains historical adventures, much like the first era of Doctor Who on television which featured a mix of science fiction and historical stories. After Volume One’s ‘The Great White Hurricane’, how will the TARDIS team fare in 19th Century Japan?
Available in July on CD and download, you can pre-order The First Doctor Adventures Volume Two individually at £23 on CD or £20 on download, or save money with a bundle and get Volumes One and Two together at £45 on CD or £40 on download.
