Not all perils faced by the Doctor are as obvious as an alien invasion. Some threats have been buried for millennia, some for mere centuries, and some hide inside a troubled mind.

But whenever he finds injustice, danger, or just an irresistible mystery, the Doctor won’t stop digging until the truth is uncovered.

3.1 A Theatre of Cruelty by Lisa McMullin
Someone or something is manipulating the dreams of French playwright Antonin Artaud. As Artaud’s nightmares are made manifest, the Doctor is compelled to intervene. Otherwise, Artaud’s new idea for an immersive theatre could become a ticket to literally die for.

3.2 The Running Men by Mark Wright
The TARDIS brings the Doctor to 21st Century Halifax, alongside police Sergeant Ambika Desai, as they investigate a mysterious death.

The trail leads to the Hebble Piazza and an unscrupulous developer, as the Doctor uncovers the town’s distant past – and the infamous Halifax gibbet. The Running Men are rising from history!

3.3 Ancient History by Matt Fitton
Professor Bernice Summerfield is delving into the mystery of the Korravin, a mighty warrior horde, vanished overnight. But her expedition seems jinxed. And when a familiar blue box appears, Benny knows they’re in trouble.

As ancient history resurfaces, the Doctor wants to keep some things buried - but Benny’s an expert at digging up the past.

Recorded on: 23 and 24 January 2023
Recorded at: The Soundhouse


Christopher Eccleston said: “The tone of the stories we’ve recorded in Buried Threats are very, very different, and Ancient History feels very traditional, of the kind I remember when I was watching this show.

“This is the first time my Doctor has met Benny, in TV or audio, and I loved it, to see that vulnerable side of him, his respect and admiration and regret – a different side to him.”

Lisa Bowerman added: “Here is Benny again on another archaeological dig, with another Doctor – who she doesn’t recognise! And she’s thinking, I don’t know this person, but then there’s recognition, and they’re batting on the same rhythms as they always did. They get back into the rhythm really quickly.”


Buried Threats delivers an enjoyable trilogy of standalone stories. You’ve got your emotional historical, your off-the-walls modern-day murder mystery, and your character-driven, introspective exploration of the Doctor.
