Down the years, many stories have been written for Doctor Who that never got to the tv screen. Now, thanks to Big Finish adapting some of them into audio plays, we can hear what might have been.

This is a story written by Andrew Smith [author of the fourth doctor story 'Full Circle'] and one that features the Sixth Doctor and Peri.

Plus the Sontarans.

It runs for four episodes of twenty six to thirty minutes each [approx] and is spread over two cd's.

The story sees the TARDIS crew discover a signalling device on the moon. Which leads them to rural England in the nineteenth century.

But in attempting to find what's going on here, they've walked into something bigger. This quiet bit of countryside holds a deadly secret that old enemies of the Doctor's are desperate to get their hands on. And it will reveal some surprising truths about them....

The main delight of this range is usually the way in which they flawelessly recreate the style of the tv show at the time, in terms of the way the story is structured plus the sound design and the music. All that is true once again here. But there are many other delights as well. Some things were known in advance of the audio versions about many of the other lost stories, thanks to them having been written up in magazines or novelised, but this one will be a fresh beast to many, so there's lots to discover here and you will be hooked waiting to see how the story unfolds.

It has a lot going on and doesn't constrain itself to a small cast or setting [which might be why it never got to the screen as it would have required a fair bit of a budget]. The supporting characters are well detailed and brought excellenty to life by the cast.

Positive.
Colin Baker excelles as The Sixth Doctor in this excellent origin of the Sontarans adventure.
A great story written & paced to perfection by writer Andrew Smith.
You hear The Sontarans & there enemies The Rutans in the same scenes together for the first time.

Trivia.

Dan Starkey plays several Sontarans in NuWho but his mostly well known as his character Sontaran Strax in the Eleventh Doctor adventures on Tv appearing in series 6 & 7 as Sontaran warrior Strax.
Andrew Smith wrote The Fourth Doctor season 18 story Full Circle & Big Finish Companion Chronicles The Invasion Of E Space.

What's Up Doc?
The Doctor & Peri trace a signalling device that is being transmitted from the moon leading The Tardis to rural 19th century rural England in the year 1872 were The Doctor & Peri stumble upon a group of inhabitants called The Kaveetch who may actually be the original inhabitants of Sontar.

This is an excellent audio drama with Colin Baker as the Doctor and Nicola Bryant as Peri. I enjoyed listening to `The First Sontarans' when I first heard it and it has gained its place in fandom very quickly as a highly regarded and popular Doctor Who story from Big Finish.

This is one of the `Lost Stories' meant for TV and it is written by `Full Circle' writer Andrew Smith, who I've had the pleasure of meeting recently and also signed the CD cover for this (as well as Dan Starkey who played the Sontarans). It is a story about the Doctor and Peri visiting 19th century Earth and coming across the original inhabitants of Sontar - the Kaveetch - who are being threatened by the Sontarans that attack them. Over the course of the story, the Doctor and Peri get to learn exactly who the first Sontarans are and know the secrets about them.

The Doctor and Peri are on top form with each other, and Colin and Nicola certainly seem to be at ease and enjoy each other's company in this story. I told Colin how much I enjoyed this story at a convention, and he agrees with me since it seems very popular according to Twitter fans. I loved the scenes where the Doctor and Peri teasingly wind each other up, and love Peri's deep glooming voice of the message `We are here!'. Andrew Smith certainly gives Peri a lot to do with being on the Kaveetch ship and saving the Doctor from the Sontarans. There's a scene where Peri actually gets to dress up as a Sontaran trooper and the Doctor seeing through the disguise. I love the scene between the Doctor and Anthony Howell's character in this story, as the Doctor mourns the seeming loss of Peri saying she was a `brave soul' when they're on their way back to Sontar.
