Publisher's Summary

'Farewell, Great Macedon': The TARDIS materialises in the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, one of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World, in the year 323 BC. The Doctor, Ian, Barbara and Susan meet Alexander the Great - but their excitement is tempered by the realization that these are the final days of Alexander's life. As the travellers become embroiled in the tragic events, the inevitability of history unfolds around them. But can they - and should they - change it?

'The Fragile Yellow Arc of Fragrance': Fragrance is a paradise world - a utopia that the travellers are loathe to leave after a relaxing stay. But the way of life is different here. And so is the way of love - as Barbara discovers when the Fragile Yellow Arc is broken....

Directed by Lisa Bowerman.

    "Old School Doctor Who"

    Farewell, Great Macedon: adapted from an unused script this has the feel of the classic Marco Polo and is lovingly made in the style of that era. Genuinely gave me the feeling it had been unearthed from old tapes! Pure joy. It takes up the vast majority of the boxset.

    The Fragile Yellow Arc Of Fragrance: this is a very experimental piece of writing, also from the same writer and time, and therefore is an interesting little curiosity that fans will be fascinated by but will have differing opinions of. Personally, I enjoyed it but it’ll not live long in the memory. It would have been a great showcase for Jackie Hill but alas not to be.

    The readings by Russel and Ford are a pleasure just because it’s them but you also get to appreciate how unique they are and why the show took off so quickly! I hope there will be more like this.
