The Five Companions

Accompanying "Army of Death", the release in December 2011, was the annual 'Subscriber Special', titled "The Five Companions". This special release unites the Fifth Doctor with five companions in a battle against the Sontarans and the Daleks.

The Five Companions
(Eddie Robson)
Inside a cluster of fused-together derelict spaceships, four of the Doctor's oldest friends - and one of his newest ones - are lost and confused. They don't know how they got there or what they're meant to be doing – but as the place is infested with Daleks, Sontarans and dinosaurs, their first priority is staying alive.

To their collective relief, the Doctor turns up and has a reasonable idea of what's going on. If the six of them work together, they can escape this place and get home. But, unexpectedly, others may be working together to ensure they all die here...
