We conclude our Doctor Who fiftieth anniversary celebrations today with the release of Doctor Who - The Companion Chronicles: Luna Romana, starring Lalla Ward - and Juliet Landau - as Romana.
The conclusion to the trilogy of Companion Chronicles stories which began, appropriately, with The Beginning and continued with The Dying Light reaches its conclusion in this special double disc release. Lalla Ward make a welcome return to the role of the second Romana once more, and is joined by Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Angel star Juliet Landau as... another Romana! And back once again is Terry Molloy as Quadrigger Stoyn, the Time Lord kidnapped by the Doctor back in his first incarnation, who still craves vengeance...
The search for the final segment of the Key to Time takes the Doctor and the First Romana to Ancient Rome. The Time Lady is appalled when her companion prefers to watch the latest Plautus comedy rather than complete their mission, and is even less delighted to meet the playwright himself.
But all is not what it seems, either onstage or behind the scenes…
In the far, far future, the Second Romana is destined to have her own encounter with a legacy of Rome, but Stoyn has been waiting. And his actions will set Romana on a collision course with her own past.
Quadrigger Stoyn wants his final revenge on the Doctor, and only Romana stands in his way.
Both of her.
Doctor Who - The Companion Chronicles: Luna Romana is now available to download, and CD orders will be mailed out today.
