When the travellers stand accused the Doctor and Ian must face trials while still trying to uncover the real murderers.
The editors of Nothing at the End of the Lane are proud to present Farewell Great Macedon, one of the earliest examples of an unused script from Doctor Who's very first season. Written in 1964 by then young writer Moris Farhi, the tale shows many of the hallmarks of the first season of the fledgling science-fiction series while also including many suggestions for other ways the show might have developed. Now you can enjoy this glimpse into those early formative years.
This volume reproduces the actual scripts and is rounded off with a forwarding article looking at the history of Moris' involvement with the production office and how the scripts came to be written as well as background on the real historical figures and reviews from several Doctor Who historians, plus a special edition of the DWM Time Team.
Included is a bonus opening script for another early
submission from Moris Farhi - The Fragile Yellow
Arc of Fragrance; and a brief history of Moris'
