And at its centre, at its heart, waiting, is the most dangerous monster of all... 2. The Crumbling Magician by Guy Adams. The TARDIS has crashed, its passengers in a bad way. The Doctor, not in the best of health anyway, his old body wearing somewhat thin, is in a coma, Ben unconscious. As for Polly, she's been affected worst of all. Time is running in the wrong order for her and she's seen the future, a future in which she's mortally wounded. But will Continuity allow her to die? More story details to follow. CAST: Carole Ann Ford (Susan/Narrator),Mark Edel-Hunt (Virgil), Anneke Wills (Polly Wright), Elliot Chapman (Ben Jackson), David Warner (Allie). More cast details to be announced.

    River Song has many ways to amuse herself away from her husband.

Monsters stalk the Underground. For River, it's the perfect opportunity to steal a priceless artwork, so long as she can avoid looters, soldiers and an alien invasion. With the gallant Captain Knight at her side, River faces the Great Intelligence and its Yeti army. But her biggest challenge may be keeping time itself on track. Peepshow by Guy Adams.

River visits Victorian London on the trail of anachronistic technology. But when young women are stolen from the streets, she takes a stand.
