A special edition of the 1964 story which also includes the recently discovered Galaxy 4 episode Airlock.


The TARDIS arrives in fifteenth century Mexico inside the tomb of Aztec High Priest Yetaxa. The travellers become cut off from the ship after the tomb door closes behind them and Barbara is proclaimed as Yetaxa's divine reincarnation.

The intention is that the disc will randomly select one of these six sequences and play it out at the appropriate point.

Owing to BBC policy in the 1960’s and 70’s, a vast number of television programmes were wiped, thought never to be seen again. Thanks to some fantastic finds, slowly, but surely, episodes of long lost classics have been returned, including many editions of Doctor Who.


This release provides commentaries for some of the “orphaned” William Hartnell episodes of Doctor Who (where the story longer exists in its entirety) covering the recently returned Galaxy 4 episode Airlock, three episodes of The Daleks’ Master Plan and the final episode of The Celestial Toymaker.


Moderated by actor, comedian and cult television enthusiast Toby Hadoke, this release features Peter Purves (Steven Taylor), David Graham (Dalek Voices), Donald Tosh (Script Editor), Brian Hodgson (Special Sound), Clive Doig (Vision Mixer) and a special bonus interview with Mission To The Unknown star Jeremy Young.
