Four new locations, four new threats and the TARDIS under arrest… Don’t miss out on The Seventh Doctor: The New Adventures Volume One with the Doctor (Sylvester McCoy), Chris Cwej (Travis Oliver) and Roz (Yasmin Bannerman).
1. The Trial of a Time Machine by Andy Lane
After colliding with another time-ship in the vortex, the TARDIS materialises on Thrantas where it is arrested and forced to face trial. While Chris and Roz investigate the crime scene, the Doctor must defend his most loyal companion against a society where guilt has no meaning.
2. Vanguard by Steve Jordan
The planet Vanguard was once ravaged by a war between its peoples: the Dauntless and the Intrepid. Now, robotic titans stalk the desolation, searching for survivors. Their mission: to end the war for one side or the other. But which side will the Doctor take?
3. The Jabari Countdown by Alan Flanagan
Arriving on a mysterious island, stranded with a group of mathematicians, the Doctor and his companions find themselves on the fringes of the Second World War. Trapped with only each other and an unknown threat, the group must work together to solve a puzzle greater than just one world’s war.
4. The Dread of Night by Tim Foley
When a grieving household offers the TARDIS travellers shelter from the weather, the Doctor, Chris and Roz find themselves exposed to even less hospitable conditions. A sinister presence stalks the house, plaguing its inhabitants… and only the truth can free them.
Scott Handcock, producer of this new box set, told us more in last month’s free Vortex Magazine: “I was still quite young when the original novels came out, but it really was an exciting time. The New Adventures were the official continuation of the series. It felt the same but also radically different, and introduced some brilliant new companions.”
“Obviously Andy created Chris and Roz for the New Adventures, and it would be very easy for a creator to want complete control, but working with Andy on this project has been a dream”. The complete article can be found in October’s edition of Vortex.

The year is 1987 and there’s a deadly new narcotic on the streets of London. As part of their investigations the Doctor and his companions Chris and Roz move into the Quadrant, a rundown housing estate. An ancient alien menace has been unleashed, a menace somehow linked to a local gang leader known as The Capper, a charmed young boy called Gabriel and his mother Winnie, the enigmatic Frei Foundation, and Eva Jericho, a woman driven to the brink of madness.
As London descends into an apocalyptic nightmare, the Doctor must uncover the truth about the residents of the Quadrant and a desperate bargain made one dark Christmas Eve.
