New Fourth Doctor Audio Adventures

He's back! For the third successive year, Tom Baker returns to audio as the Fourth incarnation of the time and space travelling Doctor, in a brand new series of full-cast adventures from writer Paul Magrs.
In Tsar Wars, the Doctor (Tom Baker) and Mrs Wibbsey (Susan Jameson) are catapulted from present day Earth to a futuristic civilisation in a distant galaxy. At the Robotov Palace they find the Tsar and Tsarina ruling over their empire whilst human workers toil on satellite moons. The Doctor is mistaken for an old ally of the Tsarina's, but then suspected of treason when the Palace comes under attack. Dark secrets are lurking in the shadows, and the mysterious Father Gregory will set off a chain of events which have long-lasting consequences for the Doctor and Mrs Wibbsey.

Featuring a dual role for Tom Baker, Tsar Wars features a superb line-up of guest actors including Michael Jayston, Simon Shepherd, Suzy Aitchison, Paul Chequer, Gabriel Vick, Grant Gillespie and Sam Hoare.
