Pyramids of Mars

Don’t Miss The Pyramids of Mars on BBC Radio 4 Extra!

One of Doctor Who‘s most enduring classic serials, The Pyramids of Mars, is currently being broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Extra!

Read by Tom Baker, the audiobook adaptation of the novelisation by Terrance Dicks is being aired in nightly installments.

New to The Pyramids of Mars? Put simply, the Doctor and Sarah Jane land in an old priory in England to confront an ancient menace attempting to break free from incarceration in Egypt. Steeped in Egyptology and Ancient Astronaut mythology, this is one of Robert Holmes’ greatest Doctor Who stories.

Part 1 has already been broadcast (catch up with iPlayer) while the schedule for the rest of the episodes (which are each repeated several times) can be found on the serial’s show page.

Interestingly, it’s a six-part serial. The original TV version was in four parts!
