This release features a recreation of the first ever cast of Doctor Who, as seen on BBC TV in 2013’s celebratory ‘An Adventure in Space and Time’ with David Bradbury then appearing as the Doctor in 2017’s Peter Capaldi finale.
Contains two stories:
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 streets, 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. Trying to reunite, the travellers find themselves in something resembling a monastery led by a man halfway between an Abbot and a warlord.
They discover that they are in ‘Urth’, a barbaric place clinging on to its former glory. It’s somewhere its populace are never allowed to leave, somewhere keeping many secrets from its people. And today those secrets will be revealed…
CAST: David Bradley (The Doctor), Claudia Grant (Susan), Jemma Powell (Barbara Wright), Jamie Glover (Ian Chesterton), Nicholas Asbury (William Shakespeare), Wendy Craig (Queen Elizabeth I), Clive Wood (Daddy Dominus).
