Lost Doctor Who

7 October 2013

With rumours all over the place about lost episodes of Doctor Who returning... Maybe it's time to have a listen to some Doctor Who stories that were lost before they even went before the cameras....

'Somewhere far back in the early days of the universe the TARDIS lands on a world lit by a dying sun. Missing from the Doctor's star maps and dotted with strange crystalline statues, it is a world ripe for exploration. But it is also a world of destruction...'

So starts a Doctor Who story from the pen of Brian Hayles (renowned as the creator of the Ice Warriors) that never made it to the screen... The Dark Planet. As many of our regular listeners will know, we've released quite a lot of these Lost Stories.

As the fourth and final series of Lost Stories commences, what better time for you to catch up with these lost gems from the past of the series?

William Russell and Maureen O'Brien star as Ian and Vicki, recreating the feel and atmosphere of the First Doctor era...

'Venturing out onto its surface, the time travellers find themselves drawn into an age-old conflict between the two species residing on the planet - people of Light and Shadow. Proving a catalyst for the escalation of the conflict, the Doctor and his friends need either to create a peace or to pick a side.

'Because in times of war, nothing is ever black and white...'

Written By: Brian Hayles, adapted by Matt Fitton
Directed By: Ken Bentley
