First Doctor William Hartnell and his companions mix with mythical Greek
Gods in this exclusive audio recording of a 'lost' television
soundtrack, with linking narration by Peter Purves.
The Doctor has
adopted many guises in his time, but to be hailed as the great god Zeus
is a bit of a shock. Yet this is exactly what happens when the TARDIS
lands on the plains of Asia Minor, not far from the city of Troy. Taken
to the Greek camp by Achilles, the Doctor is introduced to Agamemnon and
Odysseus and forced to admit his less-than-godlike status. He is then
given just two days to come up with a strategy for defeating the
Meanwhile, Steven and Vicki have been taken prisoner by
the other side. The Trojans are convinced that Vicki is a spy, and to
prove her loyalty she must concoct a plan to defeat the Greeks! Like the
Doctor, she has just two days to do it.
Luckily for the Doctor,
a certain someone has already devised a scheme for beating the Trojans.
Even if the wooden horse was invented for a piece of fiction written in

face in a climactic battle, there are dangers aplenty for both Steven
and Vicki. By the time the TARDIS moves away again, it will have both
lost and gained a crew member.
