This month’s podcast features an audio extract of one of the stories from Seasons of War : the unofficial Doctor Who charity anthology. The story is called The Celaphas Gift: it was written by Andrew Smith, who wrote the 1980 Tom Baker era Doctor Who episode: Full Circle (Part One) and its novelisation. He’s since gone on to write several Doctor Who audio adventures for Big Finish.
The extract is read by Tracey Norman, with sound design by Simon Brett.
Seasons of War is available via donation in a variety of formats. Donations are in aid of the charity Caudwell Children, for disabled children across the UK, and so far over 6 and a half thousand pounds has been raised! It’s a great book, pretty essential for Doctor Who fans, written by a talented selection of writers affiliated with the cult show in a number of ways. You can donate what you like but please consider giving generously if you can. You can donate and download the book at the Seasons of WarJust Giving page HERE.
