5.1 The Hollow Crown by Sarah Grochala
When the TARDIS lands in Shoreditch, 1601, the Doctor suggests going to see a play at the Globe Theatre and his friends readily agree.
But this is a turbulent time. There is violence in the street, plots against the Queen, and rebellion is in the air. At the centre of it all stands the most famous playwright in British history – William Shakespeare – who is having troubles of his own.
As tensions mount and wheels turn within wheels, the travellers are about to discover if the play really is the thing...
5.2 For the Glory of Urth by Guy Adams
The TARDIS has barely landed in an alien sewer when a distant scream sends Susan racing to give aid, and the crew split up.

It’s somewhere its populace are never allowed to leave, somewhere keeping many secrets from its people.
And today those secrets will be revealed...
