First Doctor William Hartnell and his companions mix with mythical Greek Gods in this exclusive audio recording of a 'lost' television soundtrack, with linking narration by Peter Purves.

The Doctor has adopted many guises in his time, but to be hailed as the great god Zeus is a bit of a shock. Yet this is exactly what happens when the TARDIS lands on the plains of Asia Minor, not far from the city of Troy. Taken to the Greek camp by Achilles, the Doctor is introduced to Agamemnon and Odysseus and forced to admit his less than godlike status. He is then given just two days to come up with a strategy for defeating the Trojans.

Meanwhile, Steven and Vicki have been taken prisoner by the other side. The Trojans are convinced that Vicki is a spy, and to prove her loyalty she must concoct a plan to defeat the Greeks! Like the Doctor, she has just two days to do it.

Luckily for the Doctor, a certain someone has already devised a scheme for beating the Trojans. Even if the wooden horse was invented for a piece of fiction written in the eighth century, it still works. As the opposing forces come face to face in a climactic battle, there are dangers aplenty for both Steven and Vicki. By the time the TARDIS moves away again, it will have both lost and gained a crew member. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " One of the most experimental of Target novelizations, it's an excuse for Donald Cotton to go to town on his Harntell-era Doctor Who script...and come up with something even more entertaining, hilarious, and poignant than the original! "

    " A decent read. I liked the narration in it (from Homer's point of view) much better than the narrative device in The Romans, Donald Cotton's other adaptation of one of his historicals, which was trying too hard to be funny all the way through. "

    " Bit of a weird one, but doesn't deserve some of the bad reviews it gets. Cotton, as always, is playing it for laughs and that's what it gets. "

    " The humor in this story worked well as an aspect of the setting, and the frame story here fit better than in previous adaptations by Cotton. "
