Don’t Forget: Auction Deadlines!

As you may have read earlier this week, we’re currently selling some Doctor Who audios on eBay, the first in a round of four weeks of auctions.

Each of the below titles is set to end today – so act fast!

We’re currently listing four titles on eBay, the proceeds of which will contribute to our annual running costs. However, we’re also donating 10% of the proceeds to the Royal British Legion, a charity that many of us contribute to in October/November every year by purchasing a poppy. The Royal British Legion provides help and welfare to the serving and ex-Service community and their families, and whatever your feelings about current conflicts, the welfare of ex-servicemen and women is something we should all be concerned about.

Here’s the list of items we’re currently auctioning:

Doctor Who: The BBC Radio Episodes – collection of nine discs spans twenty years of Doctor Who on radio, from the Tom Baker era to a time right before the 1996 Paul McGann TV Movie. Included in the collection are: Doctor Who and the Pescatons (1976), Exploration Earth (both Elisabeth Sladen and Tom Baker), Slipback (1985, Colin Baker and Nicola Bryant), The Paradise of Death and The Ghosts of N-Space (1993, and 1996, starring Jon Petwee, Nicholas Courtney, Elisabeth Sladen) and Whatever Happened To… Susan (1994).

Doctor Who: The Lost TV Episodes #2 1965-1966 – contains four episodes that have long been missing from the TV archives: The Daleks’ Master Plan, The Savages, The Celestial Toymaker and The Massacre. Also included is a special bonus disc that tells the story of what happened to these missing episodes, and the collection features linking narration by former companion actor Peter Purves (Steven Taylor). Purves also appears in some bonus interviews, and original BBC camera scripts also feature in PDF format.

Doctor Who: The Coming of the Terraphiles – by Michael Moorcock, read by Clive Mantle across 9 discs! The Doctor and Amy taking part in a competition to win the fabled Arrow of the Law. But before they can even get to the grand finals, they must deal with disappearing ships, Captain Cornelius and his pirate crew, and the collapse of reality itself…

Doctor Who: Inferno Audiobook – a two-disc version of the Terrance Dicks adaptation, read by Caroline John. Inferno is the name of a top-secret drilling project to penetrate the Earth’s crust and release a major new energy source. A crisis develops when an obnoxious green liquid leaks out as a drilling progresses – the green poison has a grotesquely effect on human beings. As the Earth’s plight worsens, the Doctor is trapped in a parallel world, unable to rescue the planet and its inhabitants from the destructive force unleashed by the Inferno project.

Note that as these auctions end, a new set of audio adventures will be listed, so check back this evening to see what those will be!
