BBC Worldwide Press Releases

Doctor Who and the Pescatons Tweenies magazine celebrates 10 millionth sale

A classic audio adventure starring Tom Baker and Elisabeth Sladen


Doctor Who and the Pescatons was originally released by Decca Records in 1976 and has been unavailable ever since… Until now!


In January, BBC Audiobooks will be releasing a remastered version of this classic adventure on CD and have included an exclusive 45-minute interview with Elisabeth Sladen who plays Sarah Jane Smith.


The TARDIS's arrival, on a lonely stretch of beach at night, is closely followed by a slithering sound and a chilling roar… this is the beginning of a terrifying adventure on present day Earth for the Doctor and his assistant Sarah Jane Smith.


The deadly Pescatons have arrived! Led by the mighty Zor, whom the Doctor has encountered before, these towering amphibian monsters are refugees from their own dying planet.


Soon the creatures have invaded London, wreaking death and destruction upon the city and all who stand in their way. In their efforts to help save the planet's population from this violent onslaught, the Doctor and Sarah must draw upon all their reserves of courage and ingenuity.


Also included is a bonus interview with Elisabeth Sladen recorded especially for this release, talking about her memories of Doctor Who and the Pescatons, her portrayal of the ever-popular Sarah Jane Smith, and what it was like to be part of the Doctor Who team in the 1970s.


Doctor Who and the Pescatons will be available from 3 January 2005.
