We had a variety of Doctor Who releases this week. On Wednesday the TARDIS went back in time with a Georgian tale on Earth, as Colin Baker stars as the Sixth Doctor with his companions Flip and Constance, played by Lisa Greenwood and Miranda Raison, in The Behemoth.
Bath, 1756 – and a very dashing gentleman known only as the Doctor is newly arrived in town, accompanied by his lady friends Mrs Clarke and Mrs Ramon. He’s created a stir among the gentlefolk of Georgian high society – and a stir in the heart of merry widow Mrs Theodosia Middlemint, rumour has it.
They are not the only strangers from abroad causing tongues to wag, however. The mysterious Lady Clara, come from Amsterdam in the company of the noble Captain Van Der Meer, has the whole of Bath agog. Who is she, really? What is she, really?
But there’s something terrible beneath the veneer of Georgian gentility. As awful a horror as the Doctor has ever exposed, hidden inside Balsam’s Brassworks. Something that needs to be brought to light, for the sake of all humanity.
And on Thursday the Early Adventures of Doctor Who continued from last month’s 10/10 adventure with the Second Doctor, Polly, Jamie and Ben finding themselves underground in deep water and deeper trouble, in The Outliers.
The TARDIS takes the Doctor, Ben, Polly and Jamie to a flooded underground town on an alien world. The streets are empty. The houses are bare. Not a trace of life.
The miners working here are vanishing. And it isn’t long before the time-travellers are suspected of being responsible for the disappearances.
But even the authorities haven’t fully realised the scale of the problem. There’s something else on this world. Something dragging people away. And it won’t stop until it’s taken them all.
And for podcast fans, this week Toby Hadoke chats to someone who been an iconic alien, married an iconic companion & straddles both old & new Who in Who’s Round. And Nick and Benji had guest star Claudia Grant (Susan in the First Doctor Adventures) a drama tease of The Tony and Cassandra Mysteries (Dark Shadows) and a special appearance of Richard Armitage.
