Doctor Who lost story written by legendary TV producer John Lloyd will finally see the light of day | Radio Times

"The Doomsday Contract was originally intended for television in the 1970s.


Doctor Who fans will finally get to experience a story developed but never made for television in the 1970s – a Fourth Doctor adventure written by famed TV producer John Lloyd.

Lloyd is now known as creator of Not the Nine O’Clock News and co-creator Spitting Image, as well as for producing Blackadder and QI.

But in the late 1970s, Lloyd was the flat-mate of Doctor Who script editor Douglas Adams (of Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy fame) and pitched a story for the BBC sci-fi series, The Doomsday Contract.

Though the story was never produced, it will finally see the light of day as an audio play produced by Big Finish, with Tom Baker, Lalla Ward and John Leeson reprising their roles as the Doctor, Romana and K-9 and writer Nev Fountain adapting Lloyd’s pitch.

A synopsis for The Doomsday Contract reads:
Earth – a small, insignificant planet. Entirely devoid of intelligent life.

At least that’s according to the legal documents. The Doctor, Romana and K9 find themselves at the centre of a most unusual trial.

A intergalactic corporation want to bulldoze the planet for a development project. Only a previous court’s preservation document is standing in their way. The Doctor has been summoned as an expert witness. If he can prove Earth contains intelligent life, the whole world will be saved.

But with a fortune at stake… it was never going to be that simple.

Director Nicholas Briggs said: “The Doomsday Contract is a tremendous example of the best kind of story from that era of Doctor Who where the brief was to veer from overt violence and threat to wit and fun.

“When I was a teenager, I was far too serious for this sort of thing. But what we have in this story is a tremendously witty script by Nev Fountain that made me laugh out loud when I read it. But it’s not simply a comedy. It’s loaded with threat and adventure and brilliant characters all mixed up in a really special story. I loved it.”

Doctor Who: The Doomsday Contract is due for release in 2021 and is now available for pre-order exclusively at bigfinish.com

Why do Yates and Benton look identical?

Their bases are nice and high, but they don't seem to have the satellite dishes on their backs


Maybe they are based on the film version and not the television version

@Susan

The Yates and Benton figures do have different face sculpts. I think Yates is quite good to be honest.

As for the Daleks, i have no idea if they have the dish on the back. The ones you pictured are quite small dishes anyway so you may not be able to see them on the new images.


As for me, i don't care as i already have both those Daleks in sets already, same goes for the Dead Planet version but i would like that set as i've always liked the original Daleks.

The War Games TARDIS is nice with it's irregular police box signs, and i do like the sculpts of Sarah and Romana (2).

The best set in my opinion is the new series one. Good likenesses especially Ryan, who is more alive than his on screen persona ever seems to be. However on principle i won't be getting them.
