Out today are two new adventures for the original TARDIS team with David Bradley back in the TARDIS as the First Doctor, Jamie Glover as Ian Chesterton, Jemma Powell as Barbara Wright and Claudia Grant as Susan, the Doctor’s granddaughter.
The First Doctor Adventures Volume Two is out now. The TARDIS team are travelling far far away from London, into strange new worlds and forbidden chapters of humanity’s past…
2.1 The Invention of Death by John Dorney
After an experimental flight, the TARDIS crew find themselves on one of the strangest worlds they have ever encountered. Alien life takes many forms, and on Ashtallah the travellers find all their preconceptions tested.
But this world is about to make a discovery – and it could mean the end of everything.
2.2 The Barbarians and the Samurai by Andrew Smith
In 19th Century Japan, Westerners are forbidden. So when the TARDIS arrives near Lord Mamoru’s castle, the daimyo’s Samurai are soon on their trail.
Uncovering secrets at court and treachery in the ranks, the Doctor and his friends are drawn into intrigue. And, as a battle begins, they are caught in the middle.
Claudia Grant told last month’s Vortex about playing Susan in Volumes One and Two of the First Doctor Adventures: “After I did An Adventure in Time and Space, I didn’t actually think too much about it again so I was delighted when Big Finish asked me to come back with the others. We had such a good time in 2013 so it was great to see David, Jamie and Jemma again.” (More details can be found in last month’s Vortex here).
Available now on CD and download, you can get The First Doctor Adventures Volume Two at £23 on CD or £20 on download. Or you can save money with a bundle. Get Volume Two with Volume One for £45 on CD or £40 on download.
And don’t forget there’s a third volume coming next year, but this time there’s also another blast from the past as Carole Ann Ford, who played Susan in the television series, guest stars as ‘The Woman’.
