Who doesn't love the Beatles? Everyone, it seems, as the Doctor finds when time goes awry.

The Doctor first fetched up on Earth in the 1960s - but what does he make of that decade's greatest musical contribution, the Beatles?

It turns out he's a big fan. The Doctor's young companion Nyssa, however, is unfamiliar with Earth's musical heritage - so a trip to the formative days of the Fab Four is in order, to show her what all the fuss is all about.

Yet the Beatles are nowhere to be seen - instead their role in history has been taken by the Common Men, a trio whose rise to fame isn't as wholesome as it first appears...

Peter Davison takes control of the TARDIS in this four-part full-cast audio drama, provided for 4 Extra. Peter is also known and loved for roles in At Home With the Braithwaites, All Creatures Great and Small and A Very Peculiar Practice.
