Today we put a short behind-the-scenes podcast live looking at this month's Doctor Who - Last of the Cybermen...
Earlier this month, Big Finish released Doctor Who - Last of the Cybermen, the second in the "Locum Doctors" trilogy which sees the two hundredth main range release in June. This short podcast visits the studio to discuss the background to this meeting of the Sixth Doctor and the companions of his second incarnation, Jamie and Zoe:
It's been ten years since the final assault on Telos, the last act of the Great Cyber War. Thanks to the Glittergun, humanity prevailed – and the half-machine Cybermen were utterly obliterated.
Out on the furthest fringes of the galaxy, however, they left their mark – in the form of a giant Cyber-head, hundreds of feet high. A monument? A memorial? A tomb? The Doctor, the Cybermen's most indefatigable adversary, sets out to investigate... but he fails to return to his TARDIS. Leaving the Ship, his two companions – brave Highlander Jamie MacCrimmon, and super-intelligent Zoe Heriot – find a stranger in the Doctor's place. A stranger in a coat of many colours, who insists that he's the Doctor – transposed in time and space with one of his former selves...
But why here? Why now? Has the universe really seen the last of the Cybermen..?
The third story in the run is Doctor Who - The Secret History, which brings the Fifth Doctor in contact with former companions Steven and Vicki, as he discovers what's been behind this manipulation of his time-line. The first episode will be available early to all those subscribed to our Big Finish newsletter.
