After being framed for the destruction of an entire civilisation, the Third Doctor and Sarah Jane follow a strange comet to planet Earth.
Meanwhile, the Fourth Doctor and his Sarah Jane are called to an intergalactic emergency: the beacons protecting the 'Sand Box', are failing.
When the TARDIS crashes to earth before his eyes, the Fourth Doctor is reunited with his former self and another Sarah Jane. But are the four of them enough to keep the Sand Box closed and whatever is within from getting out?

Producer David Richardson said: “I really have to credit Jon for starting this one off. We were chatting and he pitched this great idea of making an audiobook for the Third and Fourth Doctors, with two exciting villains for them to face.
“Jon brought his army of voices with him so The Box of Terrors sounds like a full-cast production despite being a single voice reading. And of course, this one needed to be released for the 60th anniversary – how could we not?”
Writer Lizzie Hopley added: “I was truly honoured. To feel so valued by Big Finish and be asked to write such a big thing for the 60th anniversary and for the legend that is Jon Culshaw was a big deal for me.”
Performer Jon Culshaw said: “I was always so fascinated by how these Doctors would interact: how they might cooperate, how they might clash, where it all might land. And Lizzie wrote that just beautifully.
“They had an interesting relationship in real life, Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker. They are such wonderful raconteurs, incredible storytellers, and they both have bohemian elegances in different ways. The chance to have them together was irresistible. I couldn’t stop reading Lizzie’s script once it came through, I kept looking at it! I hope it’s something that listeners will cherish.”
