Synopsis:
The Time Monster (1972)
The Master is back! Assuming the alias of Professor Thascales at the Newton Research Unit at Cambridge University, he harbours his latest deadly plot to seize control of time itself. Can the Doctor and Jo thwart his terrible plan? What secrets does the mysterious trident-shaped crystal hold? Why is the ancient city of Atlantis central to the Master's plan? And what mythical terror lies at the heart of the Maze? With time literally against them, the odds might just be too great for the time travellers...
The Horns of Nimon (1980)
When the Tardis collides with a spaceship en route to the planet Skonnos, the Doctor, Romana and K9 soon uncover the horrific truth about its cargo. The ship is carrying young sacrifices for a powerful, horned creature called the Nimon. But why is the creature so desperate for the delivery, and what other dangers await the time travellers? All will be revealed at the centre of the labyrinthine Power Complex on Skonnos...
Underworld (1978)
At the very edge of the known universe, the Tardis materialises on an aging spacecraft, the R1C. On board, the Doctor and Leela meet Jackson and his crew, who are doggedly pursuing their mission to recover the Minyan race banks from a ship which left their home planet centuries earlier. Closing in at last on the P7E, Jackson risks everything to follow the trail into the heart of a newly-formed planet. Can the Doctor help Jackson face his greatest challenge yet, and secure the future of the Minyans?
