Fortunes Of War
Fortunes Of War

Colin Baker reads this original adventure featuring the Sixth Doctor, set in the First World War.

“You’ve seen what happens, Mark. You know what time can do if it’s damaged.”

Travelling alone for once, the Sixth Doctor elects to return to Earth, and the First World War. There he must solve, once and for all, a mystery he unearthed in earlier incarnations. Someone has been interfering to alter the course of the war ― but to what end?

With Captain Mark Steadman and Nurse Annie Grantham, the Doctor travels to a forest in Germany, on a cold morning in November. At the heart of the forest is a massive temporal disturbance, and there he will rendezvous with whoever is behind significant changes to the accepted history of the Great War. 

But the forces of Time bring other entities to the meeting place: terrifying, corporeal ghosts of soldiers from many centuries of battle. If the Doctor, Mark and Annie are to escape with their lives ― and return history to it proper course ― they will need help from unexpected quarters.

Colin Baker, the Sixth Doctor in the BBC TV series, reads this dramatic and emotive new story by Justin Richards.

The Five Doctors Soundtrack
The Five Doctors Soundtrack

The Five Doctors, made and transmitted as a 90-minute special in 1983, was the 20th anniversary outing for the good Doctor, seeing the incumbent Peter Davison joined by previous incarnations Richard Hurndall (standing in for the deceased William Hartnell), Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker. The latter declined to return in person so soon after he had left, so was represented by some footage from "lost" story ‘Shada’.The music was composed by Peter Howell at the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. It was, in accordance with normal practice at the time, mixed in mono, so is presented here within a subtle mono-compatible stereo image.

The sound effects for the story were by Dick Mills, but Peter was anxious to include the Death Zone atmosphere as part of the score so – with Dick still working on a previous project for a while – created that effect himself. The story would later be edited into the standard 4 x 25m episode format for syndication, for which Peter provided some additional "cliff hanger" cues.In 1995, producer Paul Vanezis was contracted by BBC Video to produce a "Special Edition" of the story, extended beyond the original length (as determined by the transmission slot) and featuring updated visual effects. It was also decided to mix it in Dolby Surround (later updated to full 5.1 surround for DVD) so Peter Howell was called in to rework the music. Both versions of the score are presented complete on this release.

50 Years Of Lethbridge-Stewart

The Brigadier: Fifty Years of Lethbridge-Stewart 

Have you ever wondered who the Brigadier really is?

One of the centre pieces of The Brigadier: Fifty Years of Lethbridge-Stewart is a collation of the Brigs television adventures over the years, establishing the definitive chronology of the character for the first time. 

Put together by Simon A Forward, a Doctor Who writer for over two decades, the piece takes its place alongside a raft of pieces by established Doctor Who names, not least an exclusive interview with John Levene, who played the Brigs long-time sidekick John Benton, giving a rare behind the scenes look at the experience of shooting Doctor Whos golden era.

Other contributors include Darran Jordan, Philip Clarke, and a host of names still to be announced. Between them, they explore topics including the Doctors relationship with the Brig (and vice versa), the life of Nicholas Courtney (through thirteen objects of personal significance), as well as tackling the thorny question of whether or not the Brigadier counts as an official companion.

Lethbridge-Stewart: The Laughing Gnome - Fear of the Web
Lethbridge-Stewart: The Laughing Gnome – Fear of the Web

Sir Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart is nearing the end of his life and has just buried another old friend. Feeling out of sorts, he is somewhat surprised to find himself in 1981. Some mysterious force has pulled him backwards in time, into his own past, an adventure he has only vague memories of… 

1981: London, a bomb detonates in a London pub and Brigadier Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart is among the injured. Moscow, a hijacked plane sits on the airport runway and Major Grigoriy Bugayev leads the assault against the six gunmen holding the passengers hostage.

These are the triggers that set the two military men on an international manhunt. Their investigations converge and uncover a group of terrorists whose roots reach back to sinister Cold War experiments, and something that was unearthed in ancient ruins in the New Mexico desert by one Sophia Montilla… and Anne Travers.

Terror is a contagion. It means to spread. And humanity is set on doing everything in its power to help it…

Erimem: The Chronicles of Mars - A Pharaoh of Mars
Erimem: The Chronicles of Mars – A Pharaoh of Mars

Jim Mortimore’s long-planned Erimem novel A Pharaoh of Mars is nearing completion. The story of this trip to an alien world has grown since we originally announced it, and so it now forms the first book in an Erimem event series, The Chronicles of Mars, which will be made up of three novels, all by Jim Mortimore. A Pharaoh of Mars will be followed by Goddess of Mars and then Legions of Mars. 

This series of novels set on the deadly world of Maahes tells adventures on a grand scale, with Erimem and her regular travelling companions Andy, Helena and Ibrahim, as well as a surprise traveller, taken to a far off world where several races battle for supremacy. Why is Erimem so linked to this world and why is her corpse now in her supposedly empty sarcophagus? And are the other two humans on the world really legendary Egyptologist Howard Carter and the famed pulp author Edgar Rice Burroughs? 

These books will be released alongside the regular run of Erimem novels.

Jim has written extensively in the DOCTOR WHO universe as well as writing books on Babylon 5, Cracker and Farscape. Thebes Publishing is proud to have an inventive and unique voice like Jim working with us. This is going to a fantastic adventure which challenges Erimem in ways she has never experienced before.
