Bargain lost adventures

If you like Doctor Who, you need this bundle. Firstly, all 3 of these adventures are lost. These are amateur tape recordings of the show given the very best sound remastering and a linking narration from one of the show's companions. The format works very well with the narration being brief, to the point and quite charming. Also, your imagination probably paints a better picture than some of the sets did back in the day.

Secondly, despite all 3 of these adventures being historical, there's a great deal of variety. The Myth Makers takes an ironic look at legend and provides inspiration for the current interpretation of the Doctor.

Finally, all 3 of these tales see changes to the Tardis crew. There's the departure of Vicki, Dodo's debut and the arrival of Jamie. Wondeful classics at a bargain price.
