The Tardis has landed – and the Tardis crew find themselves in the city of Tromesis, on an Earth far in the future. Earth seems doomed, and the people who survive feel the dread of their ultimate fate. So why are the anonymous State using machines to take people and make them ‘disappear’? And where do those who suffer the Nostalgia Sickness go to?
This is a very intriguing story. The writer’s notes, by Eddie Robson, talk of stories in the world of Doctor Who where the futures are shown as utopian or dystopian. Here, he has tried to bridge the type of stories that were prevalent in the Second Doctor’s era, with those which seemed to often feature in the Third Doctor’s era – worlds where humanity has hope and moves forward, and worlds where humanity seems to be dooming itself. The story is innovative and very cleverly presented. It’s nice to see Jamie getting such a pivotal role in the story, and Frazer Hines, as always, uses Jamie’s voice to tell of a frightening time when he, the Doctor, and Zoe fear that their end has come, as has that of Earth.Read more ›
They do all the narration and all the voices, save for one which is done by a guest actor.
The stories are usually complete in two parts on a single cd, with episodes running from twenty five to thirty minutes [approx].
This story sees Frazer Hines return once again to the role of Jamie, whom he played alongside Patrick Troughton's Doctor back in the 1960's. The guest voice is Wendy Padbury, reprising the role of fellow companion Zoe.
The two episodes of this story both run for just over twenty five minutes.
It sees the TARDIS land in the city of Tromesis. On Earth. But the city is a ruin. People struggle to survive. They have other problems as well, such as the strange metal birds called Hawkers who attack people. People who have visions of a gleaming utopian city.
There's also the matter of a large meteor headed their way.
Can the Doctor save a city that is seemingly doomed?
As those who have heard others in this range will know, Frazer Hines does an amazingly good impression of the Second Doctor, and it's always a pleasure to hear that. Wendy Padbury is used well as the guest voice, Zoe coming into the narrative at just the right moments.
This means this one has a little more dialogue than narration, and that is pretty effective. The first episode does set up the story nicely, portraying very well a dead city where the survivors are barely able to get by. It does threaten to become a bit of a run around for the last quarter of this episode.Read more ›

This companion chronicle features Second Doctor companions Jamie and Zoe in a rather dull and slight tale of parallel worlds. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Scaroth, Last of the Jagaroth
Not one of the best tales to be honest. A bit confusing and slow in parts but 'Jamie' and 'Zoe' are good.Published on 20 Aug. 2013 by S. Phythian
