This Easter weekend – save on our entire range of audios recreating unmade Doctor Who classics.
The Doctor Who Lost Stories range recreates unmade and abandoned scripts for the original Doctor Who television series, adapting them into full-cast audios and dramatic readings with era-authentic sound effects and music. The first seven Doctors are all represented – alongside companions both new and returning and old enemies appearing in unexpected places!

And remember, when you choose to buy this release on CD directly from Big Finish, you will also unlock instant access to a digital copy for download.
The first series of Lost Stories were all adapted from unmade scripts for the cancelled 1985 season, each starring Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant as the Sixth Doctor and Peri. The TARDIS finally reaches Blackpool in Graham William's Doctor Who: The Nightmare Fair; where the Celestial Toymaker (david bailie) has planned a deadly trap. Next we head to the planet Magnus for a fateful encounter with Time Lord bully Anzor (Malcolm Rennie), the slimy mentor Sil (Nabil Shaban) and the Ice Warriors (Nicholas Briggs) in Philip Martin's Doctor Who: Mission to Magnus.
Then the secrets of the New Dawn are revealed in the Brian Finch and Paul Finch's medieval adventure Doctor Who: Leviathan, while the sleepy village of Hollowdean houses an old enemy in Christopher H. Bidmead's Doctor Who: The Hollows of Time. The Reverend Foxwell (Trevor Littledale) is conducting bizarre experiments under the supervision of the mysterious Professor Stream (David Garfield) and now a race of sand creatures have been brought to the Earth... the Tractators.
The Doctor attempts another getaway in PJ Hammond and Andy Lane's Doctor Who: Paradise 5, where a space-station holds a terrible secret. An emergency landing in Elizabethan England links playwright Kit Marlowe (Matt Addis) to a South American curse in Barbara Clegg and Marc Platt's Doctor Who: Point of Entry. The legend of the Space Whales is revisited in Doctor Who: The Song of Megaptera by Pat Mills and finally, the secrets of the Philadelphia Experiment are uncovered in Ingrid Pitt and Tony Rudlin's Doctor Who: The Macros.
Series 2 opens with two box-sets featuring the First and Second Doctors, available for just £10 each on both CD and download. Doctor Who: The First Doctor Box Set adapts two legendary scripts by Moris Farhi, and stars Carole Ann Ford and William Russell. Doctor Who: Farewell, Great Macedon sees the travellers visit the court of Alexander the Great (John Dorney) while Doctor Who: The Fragile Yellow Arc of Fragrance finds the TARDIS landing on the utopian planet Fragrance.
Doctor Who: The Second Doctor Box Set features an adaptation of Dick Sharples' Doctor Who: Prison in Space by Simon Guerrier, presenting a contemporary look at Sixties' gender politics. The set also includes The Daleks: The Destroyers, an audio adaptation of Terry Nation's unmade pilot for his creation's very own spin-off series. Adapted by Nicholas Briggs and John Dorney, this epic adventure stars Jean Marsh as Sara Kingdom, along with fellow SSS Agents Mark Seven (Alan Cox), Jason Corey (Chris Porter) and David Kingdom (Alex Mallinson).
The next four releases continue the adventures of the Seventh Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) and Ace (Sophie Aldred) in stories originally written from the unmade 1990 series. Doctor Who: Thin Ice by Marc Platt depicts an incursion into Soviet Russia by the Ice Warriors (Nicholas Briggs) and introduces the travellers to free trader Markus Creevy (Ricky Groves).
Creevy's daughter Raine (Beth Chalmers) joins the team in Andrew Cartmel's Doctor Who: Crime of the Century; where the young safe cracker's skills could prove vital in defeating the plans of the Metatraxi (John Banks). The Doctor reunites with UNIT's Brigadier Bambera (Angela Bruce) to investigate a University's testing lab in Doctor Who: Animal. Then the Metatraxi prepare to take their revenge in Doctor Who: Earth Aid. The galaxy's only hope in defeating the aliens is the battle ship Vancouver and its Captain: Ace!
Next we have the epic six-disc Doctor Who: The Fourth Doctor Box Set, containing two unmade adventures for the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) and Leela (Louise Jameson). Doctor Who: The Foe from the Future (written by Robert Banks Stewart and adapted by John Dorney) sees the travellers investigate a haunted Grange, where a thousand year scheme is about to reach its conclusion. Doctor Who: The Valley of Death finds the Doctor joining a expedition to the Amazon Rainforest, in a story written by Philip Hinchcliffe and adapted by Jonathan Morris.
