To celebrate another excellent run of Doctor Who Lost Stories, we're giving you the chance to hear the first episode of this month's enhanced audiobook release, The Rosemariners, absolutely free!
Starring Frazer Hines as Jamie and Wendy Padbury as Zoe, The Rosemariners finds the Second Doctor (played on TV by Patrick Troughton from 1966-1969) and his companions on Earth Station 454, which is being shut down. Years of research and co-operation are coming to an end and only distinguished xeno-botantist Professor Arnold Biggs remains on board.
But is there more to the closure than meets the eye? For the operation is being supervised by the Rosemariners of the planet Rosa Damascena. Their terrifying Commander, Rugosa, seems to have something to hide. Who is he? What do the Rosemariners want with the scientists? And what is the secret of Rosedream?
In a world where no one is quite what they seem, and deadly plants lurk around every corner, the Doctor will have to use all his ingenuity just to stay alive... just to stay himself.
The entire first episode is now available as a podcast to download or stream for free, and features Frazer doing his astonishingly accurate recreation of Patrick Troughton. A must for all fans of the Second Doctor, The Rosemariners is available now on CD and download.
