The first two episodes, The Dalek Invasion of Time and The Orphans of Polyoptra, are available as a package deal. The third episode, The Lady of the Lake, is available as DLC, and part of a bundle. The stories feature some all-star talent, with TV series veterans Michelle Gomez (Missy), Katy Manning (Jo Grant) and Ingrid Oliver (Osgood) all providing voiceover. The stories are written by Gary Russell, George Mann and Scott Handcock, who have all written previous stories in the Whoverse. Thus far, the Doctors featured are 12, 3 and 10 respectively, with Missy, Osgood, Rose Tyler, Jo Grant, Bill, Nardole, and others.
The next episodes set to be released are The Silent Streets of Barry Island and The Horror of Flat Holm, with no definitive release date set for either but a statement from Tiny Rebel Games stated that they will be introduced by the end of 2018. These episodes will feature the 11th and 4th Doctors respectively and include voiceover work from Nicholas Briggs (Daleks, among others) and Richard Franklin (Captain Mike Yates). They will be written by Jacqueline Rayner and Mike Collins, respectively.
