DOCTOR WHO - THE KEEPER OF TRAKEN / LOGOPOLIS / CASTROVALVA

The Keeper of Traken

A good value boxset that unites a loose trilogy of stories. The first story, "The Keeper Of Trakken", tells of a living statue that poses a threat to Traken World. In "Logopolis", Tom Baker’s final story in the title role, the Doctor battles both The Master, and the potential end of the Universe when the mathematicians of Logopolis are threatened. Davison’s first full story though, "Castrovalva"", is the weakest link of the set. Again it features The Master, and it follows the newly regenerated Doctor--in a very shaky state--as he heads for the supposedly peaceful retreat of the title, only to find, as you’d expect, that all isn’t as it seems.

DOCTOR WHO - TIME-FLIGHT AND ARC OF INFINITY

Time-Flight

Two stories based around the character of Tegan, this union of Time-Flight and Arc of Infinity is an interesting double header for any Doctor Who enthusiast. Both stories see Peter Davison in the title role. Time-Flight's big selling point is Concorde, as the Doctor gets Tegan to Heathrow Airport, only to discover that the infamous supersonic jet is caught in a muddle with a time corridor. Arc of Infinity, meanwhile, takes the Doctor back into the midst of the Time Lords, only to discover that one of them has chosen him to be the victim of a strange creature. This creature can only survive by bonding with a Time Lord, and when the High Council of Time Lords rules that the Doctor has to be killed, the scene is set for an interesting mystery.

MAWDRYN UNDEAD (PART OF GUARDIAN TRILOGY)

The TARDIS attaches itself to a space liner after Turlough, still under the Black Guardian's influence, damages its controls. The Doctor and Nyssa meet two space pirates, Kari and Olvir, who have come on board the liner in search of plunder, while Tegan and Turlough get lost in the infrastructure.

With the past mixed up with the present, can the Doctor stop the games before an evil entity hidden in the village church awakens?

FRONTIOS

An irresistible force draws the TARDIS to the barren surface of Frontios, where in the far future the last surviving humans cower amongst the ruins of their wrecked spacecraft. Under constant threat from lethal meteorite bombardments, few of the doomed colony members realise that the ground of Frontios itself opens up and devours the unwary. Not permitted to assist, the Doctor’s attempt to leave is thwarted when the unimaginable occurs: the TARDIS is utterly destroyed.
