These Stolen Hours bGrace Knight

Charley knows all too well how precious memories can be. She remembers her travels with the Doctor, her Doctor. She remembers watching him die.

A time disturbance leads the Doctor and Charley to a remote research station. Unable to form memories, the crew believe someone is doing their work while they sleep. The truth, however, is far more insidious. 

These Stolen Hours producer Alfie Shaw describes the story as a treat, particularly if you’re a fan of Charlotte Pollard.” And he’s praised author Grace Knight for getting “to the core of that unique relationship that Charley has with the Sixth Doctor. It’s a tale about perspective, heartbreak and memory. Don’t miss it!”  

Also coming soon are stories featuring the First and Fifth Doctors.

Out of the Deep by John Pritchard

Drawn to Mesopotamia in the 1850s by an unknown signal, the Doctor and Steven cross paths with an archaeological expedition looking for one of the world’s first cities, Eridu. Darkness sits at the heart of Eridu, an ancient evil that is stirring.

Some things are buried for a reason. 

Out of the Deep is performed by Peter Purves (Steven)


Downward Spiral by Alan Flanagan 

Travelling through space on your own can be lonely. It’s why Siobhan Matthews’ ship has been installed with COMPANY, an AI that has stored personalities of Siobhan’s nearest and dearest. Someone to talk to when the silence is overwhelming.

Siobhan has other guests today, which is impressive considering she didn’t let them onboard. They’re called the Doctor and Nyssa, but they’ve arrived at the worst possible time. Siobhan’s ship is spiralling towards something in the dark, and it’s hungry.

Downward Spiral is narrated by Sarah Sutton (Nyssa)
