Carole Ann Ford narrates the complete TV soundtrack of this eerie adventure set entirely on board the TARDIS.

“We are at the very beginning…”

Escaping from their previous adventure on Skaro, the Doctor, Susan, Ian Chesterton (William Russell) and Barbara Wright (Jacqueline Hill) are inside the TARDIS when it appears to be taken over by an outside force.

Bewildered and confused, the travellers become suspicious of each other’s motives, and tensions within the Ship begin to rise. The TARDIS appears to be trying to tell them something, yet the Doctor has very little idea of how to stop it hurtling backwards in Time, towards destruction…

Carole Ann Ford, who played Susan in the BBC TV series, narrates the visual action, and in a bonus interview she recalls making the TV episodes, which were written by David Whitaker and first broadcast in February 1964.

'The tight, two-episode story works brilliantly as an audio experience. It is augmented by linking narration from Carole Ann Ford, who ensures that listeners new to the story know exactly what’s happening ... This is a whole new way of relishing the creepy, unsettling weirdness of ‘Doctor Who – The Edge of Destruction’.' - Entertainment Focus

David Whitaker was the first Story Editor for Doctor Who, and was responsible for finding and commissioning writers, and it was Whitaker as much as anyone who defined the narrative shape of Doctor Who. He wrote for the Doctor Who annuals, novelised the first Dalek story and worked with Terry Nation on various Dalek-related material including the hugely successful comic strip The Daleks. David Whitaker died in 1980.
