An Eye for Murder by Una McCormack is a complete Sixth Doctor (Colin Baker) and Peri (Nicola Bryant) historical adventure was originally released in July 2014 as part of the Breaking Bubbles and Other Stories anthology. Here’s the synopsis:

The year is 1939, and a case of poison pen letters at St Ursula’s College threatens to change the course of the Second World War. Fortunately, thriller writer Miss Sarah Perry is on hand to investigate… 

First released in November 2008 as part of the anniversary anthology Forty-FiveThe Word Lord by Steven Hall finds the Seventh Doctor (Sylvester McCoy), Ace (Sophie Aldred), and Hex (Philip Olivier) beneath the ice for a frosty encounter with an eerily nonchalant villain. Here’s what to expect:

In a top-secret military bunker deep beneath the Antarctic ice, a mysterious death threatens peace negotiations and could spell disaster for the inhabitants of Earth. Can the Doctor cross the t’s and dot the i’s? Or will his efforts get lost in translation?
