Cover blurb:
SUMMONED BY SHADOWS
by Christian Darkin
Battered by his experiences travelling through space and time, the mysterious stranger (Colin Baker) has rejected his long time companion (Nicola Bryant) and is in self-imposed exile on a barren planet, where he determines to ignore pleas for help from the victims of a macabre and strangely familiar Conjurer, who seems to have limitless power...

"A mesmerising, morbidly fascinating tale, empowered by outstanding performances... packs punch with insight, a unique and terrifying experience"

MORE THAN A MESSIAH
by Nigel Fairs
Majus Seventeen — a paradise world for interplanetary tourists to relax and revel in the simple life. But all is not what it seems, as The Stranger and Miss Brown discover when decaying bodies rise from the ground, tourists are swallowed by the angry sea and they meet a mysterious girl (Sophie Aldred) whose infatuated obsession with The Stranger soon threatens the life of everyone on the planet.

"Stunning visuals, great characters and a thriller with conscience"
GARY RUSSELL, EDITOR, DR WHO MONTHLY

Cover blurb:
Summoned by Shadows
by Christian Darkin

After a long time wandering through time and space, the mysterious traveller lives in solitude on the desolate plains of an alien planet. He ignores the macabre goings-on at a nearby market where a clown possesses the souls of the living.

Why does the mute seek him out? And what about the eerily surreal garden party whose uneasy guests have the deadly habit of getting on the wrong side of their host?

This program also stars Michael Wisher, known for his portrayal of the evil Davros in the series "Doctor Who".

More Than A Messiah
by Nigel Fairs

Majus Seventeen, a paradise world where interplanetary tourists live in wood cabins amid primitive wildlife, on the banks of a serene ocean.

When the Stranger and his companion arrive, they soon realize that the planet is not what the brochures promised. Dark decaying bodies rise up out of the ground, the ocean seems to swallow swimmers, and the wildlife is far from friendly!

Sophie Aldred stars as a mysterious girl who develops an infatuation with the Stranger, and eventually threatens the lives of everyone on the planet.

Colin Baker, known for his portrayal of the sixth Doctor Who and Nicola Bryant, known for her portrayal of Peri, the companion of the fifth and sixth Doctor Who star in these bizarre intergalactic adventures.
