DOCTOR WHO is the world’s longest-running science fiction
television series. Each handbook provides both a broad overview
and a detailed analysis of one phase of the programme’s history.
David Segal is the second Doctor to take the helm of the
TARDIS for The Doctor Who Audio Dramas. Coming into
the role only two years after the series premiered with Vincent
Savage, the show was still considered an afternoon hobby,
nothing to be taken too seriously.
Of course, that didn’t take into account the plans that the cast
and crew had.
This book is an in-depth study of David Segal’s tenure as the
Doctor, including a profile of the actor, a critical summary of
each story in which he starred, and a scene-by-scene
examination of the 24h season story, THE PARADOX. This
book owes its thanks to David J. Howe and the other authors
of previous Handbooks whose tireless work continues to
enlighten us about this enigmatic Time Lord.
The Doctors need your help! The Master has stolen the funds from the Children In Need Charity and has hidden it in the dimension of human greed, along with one of the Doctor’s selves and a hapless constable. The only way to free the funds and save the Doctor and constable is to give to the charity Children In Need and prove that human generosity is alive and well!
In the Books of Old, the Doctrines and Covenants by which we live are laid out for all to know and take to heart. Obedience is Life, and Life comes from Obedience. Those who disobey face Annihilation.
It is through obedience that our crops will grow, that goods are produced, and our society will function. And it is through our strict duty to the Covenants laid out by our forefathers that the Sleeper will not awaken.
Tend to your tasks. Do not look at the Temple. Do not speak of the Terror. And the Dothan will not return.
The Doctor’s time line is degenerating. His past distorting. Soon, he will no longer exist.
In a race against time, it is up to two of the Doctor’s selves and two reluctant Time Lords to put things right, or history will be irrevocably changed.
With clips from throughout the series’ history including scenes from unreleased stories, and special appearances by past stars of the show, Doctor Who: The Webs of Time celebrates twenty years of the The Doctor Who Audio Dramas and Doctor Who itself.
The Great Key has been returned to Gallifrey, but not before the Doctor sacrifices his life in a climactic battle with the Master.
While the Doctor tries to recover from his latest regeneration, the Master seizes upon the opportunity afforded by the Doctor’s confusion and new appearance by switching bodies with him — the Doctor’s mind in the Master’s body and the Master’s mind in the Doctor’s — and returns to Gallifrey in a bid to take over the High Council Presidency and retrieve that which he lost: the Great Key.
In the late 20th century, Earth scientists discovered a large black hole in the centre of the Milky Way galaxy. So powerful was this phenomena that whoever could learn to harness and control this limitless force could easily become…Master of the Universe.
