Publisher's summary

A long time ago, two travellers came from far away...

In the perfumed palace of an omnipotent Sultan, a girl must tell stories to keep the man she cares about from a cruel and horrible death. She spins tales of distant lands she has visited with a mysterious traveller, of fabulous creatures and fantastic adventures — and of a blue box that can travel in time and space.

Meanwhile, in the dungeons below the throne room, there lurks a secret which will bring down the kingdom — perhaps even the universe.

Can the Doctor and Nyssa escape from this never-ending story before the final chapter spells their end?

Notes

  • From the Doctor's perspective, the overarching story of this anthology takes place over the course of approximately three years.
  • Subscribers received two bonuses with this release. As well as a CD of Night of the Stormcrow, subscribers also received a download of an audio reading of Only Connect from the anthology Short Trips: Transmissions, read by John Banks.
  • This is the Fifth Doctor's third audio anthology featuring Nyssa.
  • This anthology was recorded on 7 and 8 August 2012.
  • The cover is the last in the Main Range to use the blue Doctor Who logo, which had been used since the very first Doctor Who related release in 1999. (AUDIO: The Sirens of Time)
