Short Trips: Landbound, our final Doctor Who release of 2017, is available now. Download for free!
He was the captain of a ship once. Since being stripped of his authority, he is lost. Landbound. Then he meets a kindred spirit, a man who has also lost something.
In a small seaside town, both Ronald Henderson and the Doctor want to move forward, but one of them must first come to terms with his past...
Producer, Ian Atkins tells us more about this special release: “You leave a recording studio with only half a sense of how something's going to turn out, but listening to Neil Gardner's edit on this has been hugely rewarding. Nicholas Briggs's reading captures the poignancy, frustration and sympathy between two prisoners of their situations, and the final production offers this up for the listener to be an intimate part of. It's the Short Trips format at its best, and brings a close to a year I've hugely enjoyed putting together."

A modulated frequency wave cancellation signal isn’t something that the Doctor and Romana expect to detect in 1960s London. But then they don’t expect to find Professor Lanchester, the man who invented it, lying unconscious. Or MI5 investigating.
With the help of MI5 Agent Miller, Lanchester’s daughter Jill, and his nephew a pirate radio DJ called Mark, the Doctor, Romana and K-9 investigate. They soon discover that there is more at risk than they imagined, and an alien invasion is about to begin.
Can the Doctor identify and defeat the aliens in time? Will Romana manage to find a recombinant transducer before it’s too late? And how will K-9 cope with his new job?
