A wormhole in time and space is being created…  Then the unexpected occurs:  inside the swirling vortex appears a tall blue box...

Potential disaster awaits The Doctor, Rory and Amy as the TARDIS arrives in a scientific research outpost far into the future just as the fabric of reality is ripped at the seams and the universe tears in two….

This story is the final Audio Original to feature Amy and Rory, as played by Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill who left in the most recent TV episode, The Angels Take Manhattan.

City of Death is written by David Agnew (a Douglas Adams pseudonym) and features the cast from the 1979 four-part TV soundtrack, starring Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor with specially recorded linking narration by original cast member, Lalla Ward

Whilst sightseeing in Paris, 1979, the Doctor and Romana notice a series of unexplained temporal disturbances – ‘like a crack in time,’ as the Doctor puts it.  They discover that Count Scarlioni, has a knowledge of advanced technology that far exceeds that of normal 20th century Parisians. Not only that, the Count is forcing a genius professor to undertake time experiments.  The question is, why?  As the time travellers become involved in an audacious plan to steal the Mona Lisa it becomes evident sinister forces are afoot…   What lies behind the Count’s suave persona and what are his plans, not only for Paris, but the entire world? The Doctor and his friends must find the answers before time runs out.

In an exclusive bonus interview Lalla Ward recalls her time as Romana in the BBC TV series. Also included are colour PDF files of the original TV scripts.
