The First Doctor, Steven and Vicki continue their adventures in the third release of the The Early Adventures series 5. This time they’re exploring Cambridge in the early 20th century, but there’s no time for study with a deceptive plot taking place…
Doctor Who – Entanglement is out now.
Cambridge, England, the mid 1930s. When the Doctor, Steven and Vicki get separated from the TARDIS they are forced to spend some time amongst the ancient spires of Sedgwick College. The college is mid-way through a leadership crisis following the unexplained disappearance of the Master of Sedgwick, Sir Isaiah Hardy. An election for his replacement is now taking place.
But is that all that’s happening in this seemingly peaceful location? The proctors are behaving in mysterious ways and the students are prone to bursts of unexplained violence. When one of his companions also vanishes, the Doctor realises that there’s more at stake here than control of an educational establishment. A dark plan is underway – one that threatens the entire future of humanity itself!
Writers, Robert Khan and Tom Salinsky, told us about Entanglement and writing for the First Doctor for a second time (see The Ravelli Conspiracy, released in 2016): “We were delighted to contribute to the continuing adventures of the First and original Doctor. This time we sent him back to college to investigate the shady goings on in an institution even older than him, with potentially more internecine rules and traditions than his home planet – Sedgewick College, Cambridge – in the late jazz age"

Coming next in the fifth series of The Early Adventures is an exciting adventure for one of the Doctor’s companions… The Crash of the UK-201 is by Jonathan Morris, and Vicki’s travels will never be the same again…
You can’t change the past, every time traveller knows that. What’s done is done and cannot be unwritten. But what if it isn’t the past any more? What if it’s now the present?
The spaceship called the UK-201 was intended to fly to the Earth colony of Astra. But it never made it. Crashing on the planet Dido, a tragic chain of events was set in motion leading to the death of almost all of its crew and a massacre of the indigenous population.
The only survivor of these events was a young girl called Vicki. Rescued by the time traveller known as the Doctor, she’s been travelling in his ship for some time.
So when she suddenly wakes up in her cabin on the UK-201 again, without her friends, a few days before the accident, she’s faced with a stark choice... Can she stop the crash from happening? And if she can, should she?
