Here’s the glorious artwork for the fifth volume of The Third Doctor Adventures. With the return of Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart, Liz Shaw and Sergeant Benton alongside Tim Treloar’s Third Doctor and Katy Manning’s Jo Grant, this box set might just be the best Third Doctor Adventures boxset yet!

More story details to follow
In the first adventure, the Primords (from the Doctor Who TV story Inferno) interrupt the Doctor and Liz Shaw’s reunion and become one of the fiercest tests of UNIT and the Doctor to date. And in the second 'ghostly' adventure, the population of a village are apparently being spirited away in the oddest of manners.
“It’s been so rewarding to see how Doctor Who fans have embraced these new Third Doctor stories,” says producer of The Third Doctor Adventures, David Richardson. “We knew Tim’s performance (and it is a performance not a mere impersonation) as the Third Doctor was extraordinary – and it’s clear that listeners feel the same way too.”
Katy Manning (Jo Grant) told us what it was like to be recording a story featuring such beloved characters: “Working with Tim has been so much fun – watching him become the Doctor more and more. And it was a joy working with Jon Culshaw. He came in, and in an instant (and I won’t tell him how!), he caught the Brigadier immediately!”
Daisy Ashford says of reprising Liz Shaw: “I’m really excited and honoured to have been asked to play Liz and to step into my Mum’s brilliant shoes!”. There’s a full interview with Daisy Ashford talking about this new volume of adventures here.
