Format: Audio CD
Latest Doctor Who companion chronicle. These are a range of talking books which see an actor who played a companion to the Doctor on tv returning to the role to read an all new story for their character which has never appeared before in any other format.

They usually run for two episodes of roughly thirty minutes each. Are complete on a single cd. And have the actor doing all the voices save for one, which is done by a guest actor.

This one sees William Russell return to the role of Ian Chesterton, who he played opposite William Hartnell's Doctor back at the very start of the show.

It follows all the format mentioned in the second paragraph, except for the fact that isn't narrated like they usually are. It has the lead and guest actor perform the whole thing as a two hander dialogue play. A format that the companion chronicles have used a handful of times in the past.

The story sees an aged Ian, many years after he and Barbara left the TARDIS, waking up to find himself in a museum. With tableaux based on moments from his life when he was travelling with the Doctor. He meets a man there called Pendolin, who tells him that the museum is under attack from hostile forces and the two are forced to flee through the place. But not all of Ian's memories are coming back to him the way that they should. Can he find what's really going on here, and then get home?

William Russell and guest actor Philip Pope are the only two performers in the entire story so they have a lot to accomplish, but they both do superbly well with excellent performances. Pendolin remains a mystery for a lot of the story and his character goes through a lot, all of which is very will written and acted.

This is another in the Companion Chronicles series, which features a past companion of one of the Doctor’s incarnations recounting a tale. Often they are tales of a time from when they travelled with the Doctor, though sometimes as in this case this tale stands outside the time when the companion travelled with the Doctor.

In this story William Russell reprises the role of Ian Chesterton; now elderly he has awoken to find himself in a Time Museum, the only other person there being the curator of the Museum, Pendolin. They must flee through the Museum revisiting Ian’s memories of his time with the Doctor to escape marauding beings who are destroying the Museum and the exhibits. But of course, there’s much more to it than that.

This was a brilliant story; clever and complex, yet familiar enough to a long-time fan of the ‘classic’ Doctor Who stories to be quite reminiscent. Ian’s memories are evocative and bring back our own memories of stories from long ago – visiting Skaro, the Cave of Skulls, the Aztecs, the Crusades and many more. And William Russell does an absolutely brilliant job as Ian – his characterisation is still, after so many years spot on; and his rendition of the Doctor (the First, as played by William Hartnell) is uncannily like the Doctor was.

This story is a worthy addition to the Companion Chronicles, and indeed to the whole Doctor Who universe. It is one that will repay repeated listening, definitely recommended.

Ian in Another Museum 16 Aug. 2014
By Adam Graham, Superhero and Detective Fiction Author - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
An older Ian Chesterton awakes to find himself in the Chesterton exhibit of the Time Museum. He's been grabbed out of time and awakened by the curator and told they have to run as creatures are prepared to feed on his memories. Ian runs through the museum and finds himself reliving all of his adventures with the Doctor including Lost Stories. The stories become jumbled and he begins to lose them.

Unlike most other Companion Chronicles, this is one of three two handers featuring no narration as Ian and the curator run through the museum from the monsters. Both pull it off well and there's a great deal of suspense as well as a nice touch of nostalgia. The one thing I didn't like is Goss' dialogue which almost has Ian thinking the Doctor was right to try to kill the caveman in the first story which is disconcerting. However, that aside, this was very interesting and well-told tale and it's always a delight to hear William Russell reprising the role of Ian.
