The Sixth Doctor and Constance Clarke have a killer bee in their bonnet in the new monthly audio adventure Doctor Who: Colony of Fear, released today from Big Finish.
Colin Baker and Miranda Raison return to battle villainous insects that leave comatose colonists in their wake. Joining them are Nicholas Asbury (UNIT: Assembled, Callan), Rachel Atkins (Torchwood, The War Master), Misha Malcolm (Time Lord Victorious, Torchwood), Leighton Pugh (Survivors, Missy) and Andrew James Spooner (Timeslip, Star Cops).
Sometimes the TARDIS takes the Doctor to where he needs to go...
Answering a distress call from the out-world of Triketha, the Doctor and Constance Clarke discover human colonists battling against an onslaught of giant, malevolent insects. The insects’ sting induces a coma, and it is only a matter of time before all the colonists succumb.
The Doctor is curious as to the origins of the insects, which appeared from nowhere, and offers his assistance to the colony’s governor. But is this the Doctor’s first visit to Triketha, or has he been here before? The Doctor must confront a past that he has no memory of and take responsibility for the consequences of his actions.
Producer John Ainsworth said “I always like to see, in the scripts, something slightly pushing the Doctor into territory that he doesn’t always go into. Here in Colony of Fear, he has to face up to his responsibility and the repercussions of his actions and decisions which perhaps he considered quite lightly originally.”
Colin Baker added: “Constance is a character I’m getting fonder the more I work with her. Like most companions, she’s very good for my Doctor – I haven’t met a companion yet who isn’t good for my Doctor, because they all bring new things that deflect him from his tired old ways sometimes, and Constance is one of those.”
