Frazer Hines, who played Jamie, reads Terrance Dicks’ novelisation of Robert Holmes’ 1968-69 serial The Krotons, a story featuring the Second Doctor, Jamie and Zoe.

Long ago, strange crystalline creatures came down from the stars and settled on the planet of the Gonds. Over the years they educated the Gonds through teaching machines in the great Hall of Learning. In return, the Gonds periodically selected their two most brilliant scholars to become ‘companions’ to these mysterious beings.

But when the Doctor, Jamie and Zoe arrive on the planet, they soon discover the true purpose of the aliens and learn what it really means to be a Kroton companion…
