The War Games in July

It has finally been officially confirmed that July's release in 2|Entertain's Classic Doctor Who series will be Patrick Troughton's epic last story, <b>The War Games.</b> The ten parter, the second longest single Doctor Who story ever made (discounting Trial of a Time Lord), was first broadcast in Spring 1969 and saw the Second Doctor and his companions Jamie (Frazer Hines) and Zoe (Wendy Padbury) landing on what appears to be Earth during the First World War. The three soon find that all is not as it seems, however, when they find themselves travelling between time zones, each of which is based around a different war during Earth's history. Who is controlling the time zones, and to what purpose, and can the time travellers survive long enough to get to the centre of the web? Co-written by Malcolm Hulke and Terrance Dicks, the story is famous not only as Troughton's final adventure but also as the story which finally revealed where the Doctor came from, and introduced us to his people the Time Lords, and is a more than welcome addition to the range.
