This release marks the first trip through time for a new companion, Marc, who joined the TARDIS team on their travels at the end of September’s release, Doctor Who: Tartarus. Marc, a Roman slave, played by George Watkins, journeys to the far future alongside Tegan (Janet Fielding) and Nyssa (Sarah Sutton).
Interstitial by Carl Rowens
When the TARDIS is drawn off-course by temporal disruption, the Doctor and his companions discover a research facility conducting dangerous experiments. But how do you fight the future when time itself is being used as a weapon?
Feast of Fear by Martyn Waites
At the height of the Irish famine, a carnival travels the country bringing cheer to all they encounter. But it also brings something else along with them ...and it already has the Doctor.
Marc isn’t the first male companion to accompany the Fifth Doctor, who has previously travelled with Adric (an Alzarian) and Turlough (a Trion) on television, although he is the first human, as Peter Davison explained: “One was a child genius who wanted to back into E-Space and the other one was trying to kill me, so I'm hoping that Marc is going to improve on that record."
George Watkins said: “I think Marc is just a bit blown away by what he's experienced. I think he might think he's insane, in some way.”
Sarah Sutton added: “Because we have the extra companion now, Janet and I have had quite a few scenes together. Whereas normally, if there's only the two of us, we get split up. We have had some nice scenes together. And... Nyssa gets to be bad.”
This latest release in the Doctor Who monthly adventures range marks the first contribution to Big Finish by two new writers, Carl Rowens and Martyn Waites.
Carl Rowens said: “I think what I wanted to do was give something special for Tegan and Nyssa to do, to show off their unique skills without the Doctor overshadowing them.”
Martyn Waites added: “[I was asked] if I could come up with some kind of eerie horror story. Since my crime novels all veer towards that anyway it seemed like a good fit.”
