The Early Adventures - 5.1 The Dalek Occupation of Winter CD-Audio
Part of the Doctor Who - The Early Adventures series
The TARDIS lands in the capital city of a planet deep in the midst of an endless winter.
The population are celebrating a new crop of candidates winning roles at the scientific research centre.
Those who go there dedicate their lives to continued service and are rarely, if ever, seen again.
Not everyone is happy to see them leave. As the Doctor, Steven and Vicki watch, the city leader -Majorian -invites onto the stage in front of the happy crowd their `friend who made all this possible'... and a Dalek appears.The people of this planet seem to be living in perfect harmony with the Doctor's old enemies.
But the TARDIS crew know this cannot be true. So what's really going on? The Early Adventures are a range designed to tell stories in long gone Doctor Who eras, with narration from some of the actors there at the time.
Here Maureen O'Brien and Peter Purves reprise their 1964 roles as the Doctor's assistants Vicky and Steven.
Peter Purves-known and loved by a generation as one of the definitive Blue Peter presenters, not only recreates his companion role, but gives a careful, fond impersonation of First Doctor actor William Hartnell.
This 2018 run of four Early Adventures tales creates a self-contained story arc with the Doctor, Vicky and Steven confronting enemies old and new. ?
