Description:  An exclusive-to-audio musical play written as a sequel to the 1988 Doctor Who TV story The Greatest Show in the Galaxy.
Several of the original TV cast return to reprise their roles, such as Christopher Guard as Bellboy and Dee Sadler as Flowerchild. Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred also co-star, although as new characters (the High Poet and Captain Gren respectively) rather than The Doctor and Ace. Also available as a novelisation.

Cover blurb:
(Based on The Greatest Show in the Galaxy by Stephen Wyatt)

Once upon a time, there was a circus.

A Psychic Circus, to be precise. A glorious haven for the misfits of the universe. But then, as is so often the way, it was hijacked by a trio of malevolent Gods. Things grew unpleasant.

Now, years later, the Gods are gone, but the scars of those who survived the Circus remain.

After all, you can’t change the past.

Unless, of course, you’re a dead man, a confused poet, a mysterious orphan, a mild-mannered gestalt entity, a gruff timeship Captain, and a patch of sentient rust.

Unless you’re the Children of the Circus... and you’re willing to sing
