They do all the voices save one, which is read by a guest actor.
The stories are usually complete in two parts, on a single cd.
In this one, Carole Ann Ford returns to the role of Susan, whom she played opposite William Hartnell back during the very first year of the show.
The two episodes of this release run for thirty three and twenty eight minutes respectively. [Approx].
And it's a prequel to the show itself. Plus the couple of other stories that this range has done which have taken place before the first tv story.
This one tells the story of what happens to the Doctor and his Granddaughter right after they leave Gallifrey.
They visit a strange world. Meet some very strange aliens. And a man called Quadrigger Stoyn. Who has been brought along for the ride in the TARDIS. He's not very happy about it...
Licensed fiction can't ever do anything to change established continuity. Nor can it create new continuity. Thus those who are looking for the full story as to why the Doctor left Gallifrey in the first place will not find the answers they are looking for here. This one starts with him and Susan in the process of getting a TARDIS.
Mind you licensed fiction can reference established continuity, so you will find a couple of fan pleasing moments early on. They fit in very nicely with the narrative without being at all obtrusive.
The script and the reading manages to convey superbly, via Susan's viewpoint, what she goes through.Read more ›
Where the Tardis and its runaways, and the inadvertent third passenger goes, and who/what they meet when they get there, gives us, the listeners the first glimpse into the strange new way of life that the Doctor and Susan now find themselves living. The Doctor’s traits of curiosity, intellectual searching and irascibility are evident from the start, as is the strong relationship with his granddaughter. I think that where the story fell down a little for me was in the middle when there was a shift in timeframes between the two planets; it all got a bit weird there I thought.Read more ›
