Peladon is a new collection of full-cast audio adventures that form sequels to the Third Doctor stories The Curse of Peladon (1972) and The Monster of Peladon (1974). The cast includes Colin Baker (the Sixth Doctor), Paul McGann (the Eighth Doctor), Alex Kingston (River Song), Bonnie Langford (Mel), Jane Goddard (Alpha Centauri) and David Troughton (Peladon).

With each passing generation, the toll of industrial exploitation and deadly political games is taking its toll on the planet Peladon. Can the Doctor and his allies guide the course of history towards a hopeful future? Or is Peladon’s fate in the lap of the gods?

The box set contains four stories, set at different times during the planet’s turbulent history: The Ordeal of Peladon by Jonathan Barnes and Robert Valentine, The Poison of Peladon by Lizzie Hopley, The Death of Peladon by Mark Wright and The Truth of Peladon by Tim Foley.
