Liverpool represented at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Photography Los Angeles County Museum of Art has put twenty thousand high quality scans online of items in its collection which it believes to be in the public domain [via].

I immediately went to the search page and tried the usual keywords. Shakespeare reveals a number of printed woodcuts, Doctor Who some unrelated cotton pickers and a painting of Rochester (which isn't to say Big Finish couldn't produce a release from those elements) and Liverpool, which as you can from these links are revelatory:
