The Fifth Doctor faces a black hole, ghosts and a friendly robot butler in our latest Main Range release!
'The Four episodes just fly by - the story really is that absorbing: time travel, infection, greed, ethics, beeswax and tea-making have probably never been in the same sentence together, but Aquitaine has made it possible. It is a story that demands to be listened to on multiple occasions to fully appreciate the nuances of the script and how it works hand in hand with the musical score and the subtleties of the cast - a real gem of a story and an utterly charmed 10/10' - Planet Mondas

Our 209th main range release, Doctor Who: Aquitaine, presents an all-new adventure for the Fifth Doctor (Peter Davison), Nyssa (Sarah Sutton) and Tegan (Janet Fielding), set during the early days of Season 19. Listen to the trailer below:
Today should be much like every other day for Hargreaves, the computer consciousness that co-ordinates daily life aboard the spaceship Aquitaine, stationed on the outer fringes of a black hole. Water the plants, run the diagnostics, cook the Captain’s breakfast; then tidy the plates away, rotate the ship, clean the windows of the observation deck. When at last the day’s work is done, Hargreaves will dim the lights in the sleeping quarters. But no-one will sleep aboard the Aquitaine tonight. Because the Aquitaine’s crew is missing.
But today will be different. Today, a space/time ship called the TARDIS will materialise in the botanical section, bringing the Doctor, Nyssa and Tegan aboard the Aquitaine. Together, they’ll seek to discover the truth of what happened to Hargreaves’ crew…
… if only the ghosts will let them.
