The Curse of Peladon
The Monster of Peladon
Saturday, November 28, 2009
The TARDIS materialises on board the maiden voyage of a pioneering space cruiser, travelling from Earth to the planet Eternity. The Doctor has just started exploring the huge, hi-tech Interstitial Transposition Vehicle when there is a loud bang, a massive jolt and a flash of light. Shortly afterwards, he discovers that nearly all the passengers and crew have disappeared. Unless the Doctor and flight attendant Sugar MacAuley can take control and steer the ship, they could crash-land – or keep slipping through space forever. And as if that wasn’t enough, something awful awaits them on Eternity.
Doctor Who: The Last Voyage will be released on audio CD across the United Kingdom and Ireland on the seventh of January 2010 at a regular retail price of £7.99, joining the other exclusive Doctor Who audio stories: Pest Control, The Forever Trap, The Nemonite Invasion, The Rising Night, and The Day of the Troll.

The Tenth Doctor, as portrayed by David Tennant, features on the cover of the latest issue of Radio Times magazine, which was released today. The magazine includes an interview with Doctor Who lead writer, Russell T Davies, along with a preview of The Waters of Mars, the second Doctor Who 2009 special. An extract from the magazine's interview with Russell T Davies can be read below:
"Doctor Who can be funny, wise, whimsical, exciting, heartbreaking, you name it, but I suppose the scary ones linger, because fear is such a vivid emotion, and very little stuff on TV is actually frightening. Good old-fashioned fear is Doctor Who’s domain. It’s what the viewers come for, especially kids.”
Inside, you can also read the listings for next week's television and radio, and the details for this year's Children in Need telethon. This issue of the Radio Times is currently available to buy across the United Kingdom and Ireland, being sold at the price of £1.10. Will you be buying a copy of this magazine this week?
