We love StoriesBig Finish produce great full-cast audio drama for CD and download, featuring many popular television fantasy series.
Under the streets of Paris, Peter Davison and David Tennant are teaming up against the Cybermen in the second chapter in the Doctor Who – Out of Time trilogy.
Released today from Big Finish, The Gates of Hell finds the Fifth and Tenth Doctors reunited in the Catacombs of Paris for a full-cast multi-Doctor audio special which pits both Time Lords against a classic enemy.
Paris, 1809. The Fifth Doctor takes a tour of the Catacombs and meets a sassy Time Agent doing the same…
Paris, 1944. The Tenth Doctor misses his target and lands in occupied France. He hides from the Nazis – in the Catacombs.
A collision of two Doctors’ timelines triggers a temporal catastrophe, granting the Cybermen dominion over the Earth.
The Doctors must travel back in time to find the source of the Cyber-invasion and close the Gates of Hell…
Producer David Richardson said: “The Gates of Hell is really lovely stuff. It features a smashing script from David Llewellyn that shows these two Doctors at their very best, saving the universe together while facing one of their oldest foes. If Children in Need’s Time Crash left you wanting more, then here it is!”
Writer David Llewellyn added: “It’s probably a bit of a cliché, but this was ‘dream come true’ stuff. One of my earliest television memories is Peter Davison pushing a Dalek out of a first floor window on Shad Thames, so he always felt like my Doctor, and I welled up a bit when the Tenth Doctor said the same thing in Time Crash.”
“My brief was simple, just the basic ingredients, and they were all amazing. Fifth Doctor, Tenth Doctor, Cybermen. I mean, really. It was like Christmas!”
