Doctor Who – The Fifth Doctor Adventures: The Lost Resort and Other Stories is now available as a collector's edition 4-CD box set (at £22.99) or digital download (at £19.99) HERE, with the trio of tales as follows:
The Lost Resort by AK Benedict
Reunited with his companions, the Doctor’s plans to travel home to Gallifrey are cast aside when the TARDIS materialises on the Soresia: a planetoid with an unusual temporal atmosphere, home to the Welkin Sanatorium; seemingly an ideal place to recuperate. But the patients – like the Sanatorium – are mere shadows of their former selves. Decay has taken hold... yet their secrets remain as strong and healthy as ever.
The Perils of Nellie Bly by Sarah Ward
When the TARDIS crew arrive on the RMS Oceanic, they meet notorious journalist Nellie Bly on the final leg of her voyage to travel the world in less than eighty days. But with a saboteur on board, the Doctor and his friends must race to help Nellie reach her destination – and save her future.
Nightmare of the Daleks by Martyn Waites
Deep within a drilling rig on planet XB93, its crew has been suffering nightmares: dreams of cold, metallic creatures, stalking them through the base, killing them as they sleep. Fortunately for the crew, the Daleks’ own worst nightmare has just arrived – and he goes by the name of the Doctor.
The cast are completed by Ajjaz Awad (The Early Adventures, The War Doctor Begins), Anna Barry (Doctor Who, The Monthly Adventures), Chandrika Chevli (Inside No. 9, Torchwood), Clare Louise Connolly (The Crimson Petal & The White), Sydney Feder (Torchwood, Killing Eve), Ryan Forde Iosco (The War Master, Missy), Alana Maria (Doctor Who, The Commuter), Glen McCready (Callan, Missy), Daniel O'Meara (The Avengers, Under The Skin), Alibe Parsons (Space: 1999, Doctor Who), Julia Sandiford (The War Master, Years & Years) and Big Finish newcomers Marion Jones and Kayi Ushe, with Nicholas Briggs as the Daleks.
Producer and director Scott Handcock said: “The Lost Resort picks up from the end of last year’s monthly release Madquake where the Doctor and his companions are reunited in body if not in spirit. It’s a lovely, contemplative story that examines the TARDIS crew’s new dynamics, as well as confronting them with a ghost from their collective past. And The Perils of Nellie Bly and Nightmare of the Daleks form a double-bill of two-parters to round off the mini-season that started with Marc’s introduction.”
